I am a new Imperial Guard player (Lord General), it seems to me that all Tier 1 units are helpless in front of a heavy bolter turret. Sometimes those SM players just keep building turret at VP and crucial resources. I go for a chimera quickly and it's effective but turrets are later upgraded with AV missile. By the time i got ogyrns or Tier 3 , it's already too late for 500 vp. I understand those are skill-less players but i really can't find a way to counter them. Thanks for your help

I think you mean counter, you can either try and flank it or avoid the area until T2 then get melta stormtroopers to sneak behind it and kill it or get a Lascannon/Autocannon to kill it, Ogryns can also work with the anti-suppression armour helping them get into melee. If it is upgraded to a missile launcher you can just shoot it with guardsmen though.

Frist of all - are you talking about 1 on 1 games or team games ? Also could you upload your replay to shows us where is the problem ?

LG have the easiest way from all IG heroes to counter unflankable turret in t1 but it cost some power : anty supression armor + flamer on GM

You can also sight-block the turret with a bunker then destroy it (from inside the bunker or by flanking). It costs red but works if several turrets cover the same position.

I wouldn't recommend getting GM flamers, even if you do somehow kill it without dying first from the damage you're left with a short ranged squad which becomes a liability late game.

That is brilliant.
