    Frontal Assault with everything.

    2nd Turn Tau:
    3 Crisis suits target the assault troops and tactical. The railguns target the bikes. 2 Assault troops have died, 3 Tactical and 1 bike. Advance kroot on right flank, take cover and advance stealth and FW on right side.

    Space Marine:
    Rocket launcher kills two FW. Advanced Assault warriors take a cover position and wait. Bikes ditto.

    3rd Turn Tau:
    All hell gets released. Crisis suits target the Tactical Squad and FW squad and stealth suits attack Assault troops. kroot take on last bike and railguns attack tactical squad. Casaulties:Last bike, both remaining assault, and 5 Space Marines.

    Space Marines: Seeing defeat surrenders

    sounds like a great win, but i'm just curious, what do you mean 'no unit coherency' and 72" battlefield? 72" across? if you so no wonder you kicked his ass! but congrats.

    raspberries!

    I forgot what the gameplay is, but there is one scenario where because its so small so scale (which it was not, but more fun) the units play as individuals. THis helps when he loses his half his squad, and we can ignore leadership rolls.

    Indeed. For future reference noob, games of 500 points are to be played on a 4"x4" table at the biggest and there is no excuse for not having any cover, it can be represented by cans, bottles, books or anything that blocks LoS.
    The enemies of the Emperor fear many things. They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death. Yet there is one thing they fear above all others. They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!

    may i ask, it wasn&#39;t at all suspicious to you at the time that he got to fire once and you killed everything he had with shooting?

    Yeah, the person that got owned was me. It was pretty painful. However, I will jsut have to chop his head off next time . J/k. Yeah, I bought some more stuff, so we will see what happens next time. I think I am overestimating the Tau goodness because I got massacred so badly, so I am a little afraid now. Oh well, jsut gotta have fun.
