------> Apparently at least one Eldar player didn't buy enough of those
Eldar AA guns which can also target ground units. Chaos bikers are maybe
equal to Jetbikes before Cards, but they'll be outnumbered bigtime. I think
the combination of numerous psychic attacks plus numerous pop-ups plus fast
HTH troops who were at least equal to Chaos's best caused the problems. You
won a _majority_ of the time?
>> Chaos vs Nids (in case you haven't guessed, these two cases are

-----> Minotaurs & Trolls? Against hordes of Genestealers? The Daemon
princes I can see being effective until they get nuked with multiple psychic
attacks, and titans would be allright to a point, but c'mon...never lost?

---------> Buildings? No building with infantry in it finishes the turn
standing in our games..Expensive Infantry? Yow...

--------> Well that's what we're wondering...You rarely lost to nids and
eldar, the two nastiest CC armies who also happen to have the most psychic
attacks which is Chaos' Achilles heel (heel? Leg!), who did beat you
and how? C;mon, it's war story time...
