    The game was pretty much over, all that remained was the infantry platoon of 3 and the command squad. On the tau side was the hammerhead, commander and 13 fire warriors out of the 8 that started

    Well, hope you all liked, it. The report took me 30 mins to type up so people had better read it lol

    Hi nice report but i got a bit lost at the start as it read like you tank had taken down the hammerhead then the next turnit was fireing again. So if the hammerhead didn't get blow up what did you kill but still the rest was fine pity you didn't kick his butt but with all his fire power its hard..

    Entertainng little game, but it seemed to me that the IG player was doomed from the start. Not sure what I would take to fight Tau if I were the IG, but it sure wouldn't be a bunch of footslogging infantry with short-ranged weapons and a few lightly armored vehicles....

    Nice battle report. However, the IG player needs help. Deploying the Basilisk out in the open is just plain dumb. Obviously if there wasn't terrain to hide it behind then it was just a poorly setup board. Either way thats a problem.
    Good report though.

    ugh, tell that IG player to get some Heavy Weapons!

    oh and also tell him to always deploy his bassie out of LOS. and remember to put terrain (when setting up) in corners to hide the aforementioned bassie.

    heavybolters in squads. lascannons in squads. these help alot. relying on *running* at the Tau with guns o' blazin'... not a good idea PulseRifles eat guardsmen like nothing else

    what is wrong with the guard player? i mean a bassie in a small game!!! i would take a heavy weapon platoon instead. and use storm troopers to deep strike.
    P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe
