this was my first match, and my first batrep ever, so here we go
we were playin just a regular vp game, the armys were small, and i dont remeber the points, but the list were something like this
Crisis suit commander: plasma rifle, Missle pod
Body guard#1:plasma rifle
Body guard#2:plasma rifle
3 stealth suits
12 fire warriors x12 pulse rifles
Devlfish: basic stuff
16 Kroot: basic stuff
Leutenit: don't remeber load out(joined big tatical sqaud)
1st tatical squad: 12 men, with 1 plasma
2nd tatical squad: 8 men, with 1 plasma
Pred: x2 las cannons
Very Sparse, a hill in the middle, a forest in the south west corner, with a tau building right next to it. And a small forest near the west side of the board. A small board his pred could shoot everything
I put my fire warriors in the southwest forest, with my commander+ruitine behind them, my devilfish is east of the forest as an escape plan for my warriors. The kroot near the building. and the stealth suits behind the forest on the west edge He put his pred on the other side of the hill, and his tactical sqauds as far forward as possible.
I won the roll for deployment, and choose the corner with the forest and the tau building,
He wins the role for the first turn
1st turn marines:
Both tactical squads moved forward but were still not in range. The pred. stays put, and then promply blows up my devilfish.
1st turn tau:
Everything stays put except my Kroot which moves to intercept the large tatical squad. The fire from my fire warriors kills 2 from the smaller squad, and the stealths kill 3 more leaving 3. My kroot fire on the larger squad to no effect, and the jump suits fire on the pred. doing nothing.
2nd turn marines:
Everything advances again, the smaller tactical squad fires on my stealths killing one, and larger tac. fires on my kroot killing two. the pred. fires on my commander and guard, and kill both guard with the las. cannons and the big cannon on hits the FW squad killing 6, a blast template i think. The large tac. squad charges the kroot killing two, alone, with the leutenit killing one more with its fist, they take one casualty of their in return
2nd turn tau:
I start by moving my commander behind the building, and spreading my FWs out. My two stealths fire into the small tac. squad, and kill 1, leaving 2. my FWs having nothing to fire on sit and do nothing, my commander uses his missle pod to fire on the pred. and does nothing. My stealths charge the 2 members from the small tac. squad and do nothing, losing one in return, my last one runs, but is not run down. my kroot kill a further two from the large squad leaving 9, losing two more to the brutal marine chain swords, and run 8", but are also not run down
3rd turn marines:
My opponet runs after my kroot but dont catch them, the last two tac. marines from the small squad move in on my warriors. In shooting the pred. fires and misses with all wep. on my warriors:w00t: and then continue to miss with both tac. marines. The big squad fires on the kroot killing two more, leaving 4. They then catch up to my kroot killing them all taking one in return leaving 8 left
3rd turn tau:
This is were my opponet made the fatal mistake, by leaving the pred. in the same spot my stealth sneaked around the back and got a glancing hit that sent that tank sky high, and then to top it off my commander kills the remaing two marines from the small tac. squad, and my fire warriors rip through 5 marines from the large squad leaving 3 left
4th turn marines:
The remaining marines, take revenge by killing the stealth that blew thier beloved tank, then turn tail and run
4th turn tau:
My fire warriors move toward his remaining marines, and kill two leaving only the leutenit behind, my commander takes carefull and and blows half the leutentits body off with his plasma rifle, leaving the field swept clean of all those marine scum
This was a great battle, and when he lost his tank and 5 marines in one turn the game was over. Something i learned coming out of this battle was that kroot make a great distraction. If my opponent had not followed my kroot and charged my fire warriors he would have won.
Sorry for bad spelling, and gaps in the story, but its late and i played this game about a year ago, so try to bear with me, please tell me how i could improve my batrep. By the way i dont like fluff battle reports so please dont tell me it is better

We bring only death, and leave only carrion. It is a message even a Human can understand.
thank you very much, since it was my first match, and my opponent had had many battles he tricked me into thinking that the las cannons had a special device, that made them template, and that he could separate them, i will have to talk with him
If he was using VDR, he could, but he needs your permission to use those.
