I disagree with you. From personal experience a 400 point detachment
of eldar aspect warriors bets a 400 point of marine detachment
consisting of LRs and Marines in close combat very easily.

What I noticed about this thread is that people seem to be talking
as through no is terrain on the battlefield. Hell, in all the games
I have played I don't think there has been any point on battlefield
that has been more than 40cm from a piece terrain, even when I have
set up the terrain (I play IG and marine armies)!. I wondering if
the reason allot people are having problems with LRs is because
there isn't enough terrain on their battlefields.
