    40K VWMkIII - Battle #49, Round #5 - Tau versus Dark Angels

    Please see this thread on how to participate in these games. I want to stress to everyone that the mission means everything. He who stands the best way to score Victory Points should be the winner. All missions have the Infiltration, Deep Strike, and Victory Points special rules.

    Mission Type - Recon

    Tau - (4 points)

    Headquarters - 216 points
    Shas'O:
    Plasma Rifle, Fusion Blaster, Multi Tracker

    Shas'O:
    Plasma Rifle, Fusion Blaster, Multi Tracker

    Elites - 338 points
    XV8 team leader:
    Twin linked Fusion Blaster, Plasma Rifle, Hard-wired Multitracker

    XV8 team leader:
    Twin linked Fusion Blaster, Plasma Rifle, Hard-wired Multitracker

    Stealth Team Squad – Six (6) men
    Six (6) armed with Burst Cannons

    Troops - 608 points
    Fire Warriors Team – Twelve (12) men
    Eleven (11) armed with Pulse Rifles
    Shas'Ui: Pulse Rifle

    Fire Warriors Team – Twelve (12) men
    Eleven (11) armed with Pulse Rifles
    Shas'Ui: Pulse Rifle

    Fire Warriors Team – Twelve (12) men
    Eleven (11) armed with Pulse Rifles
    Shas'Ui: Pulse Rifle
    Devilfish: Decoy Launchers; Burst Cannon

    Kroot Carnivore Squad – Nineteen (19) men
    Nineteen (19) armed with Kroot Rifles

    Fast Attack – 192 points
    Gun Drone Squadron - Eight (8) men
    Eight (8) armed with Twin-linked Pulse Carbines

    Gun Drone Squadron - Eight (8) men
    Eight (8) armed with Twin-linked Pulse Carbines

    Heavy Support - 495
    Hammerhead:
    Railgun, Two (2) Burst Cannons, Multi-Tracker, Decoy launchers

    Hammerhead:
    Railgun, Two (2) Burst Cannons, Multi-Tracker, Decoy launchers

    Hammerhead:
    Railgun, Two (2) Burst Cannons, Multi-Tracker, Decoy launchers

    Tactics:
    The non Devilfish equiped Firewarriors and the kroot are used as a firebase with the Devilfish & Firewarriors being used as a mobile reserve to either support the FW with firepower or to tank shock any units getting close, the DF can also be used to FOF or to take objectives.
    The 2 Shas'O use the drone squads as protection using the full encirclement tactic, this allows them to hunt down armour and tough units while being reasonably safe from retaliation.
    The other two XV8's hunt armour and all 4 XV8's help to distract fire as they cannot be ignored, being lone suits they help to dilute firepower as well.
    The Stealths are a distraction and harrasment unit working on the flanks and are primarily infantry and HQ hunter.
    The Hammerhaeds are primarily infantry hunters but can be used for armour.
    The list works because it splits fire and is also hard to combat tactically having both mobile and strong static elements, it works well in escalation and also is strong at take and hold and both defensive and offensive tactical variations.

    ----------------------------------------

    Deathwing “Mech” List - (2 points)
    Dark Angels Deathwing

    Headquarters – 601 points
    Chapter Master:

    Land Raider:
    Twin Linked Heavy Bolter; Twin Linked Lascannon Sponsons; Power of the Machine Spirit

    Land Raider Crusader:
    Twin-linked Assault Cannon; Multi-Melta; Hurricane Bolter Sponsons; Smoke Launchers; Searchlight, Extra Armour

    Tactics:
    Land Raiders move up 6” and fire their payload, the Crusader moves straight forward as far as possible and fires smoke launchers. Next turn, the big command squad dumps its payload of massive slaughter and ties up as many units as possible. Next turn, the other Land Raiders move up and add in their attacks. Not much can stand up to 32 S5 power weapon attacks that re-roll to wound. The thunderhammers are a just-in-case measure. With all the furious-charge powerfists, multi-melta and assault cannons, enemy vehicles shouldn’t be a problem. And since these guys will be outnumbered, they’ll have to concentrate their attacks and move on. The Land Raiders also make good LOS blockers.

    I vote Tau

    The Rail guns and fusion blasters will make short work of the land raiders and after that, the Tau will have no trouble picking off the 17 enemy units

    It's not hard to fail 17 2+ armour saves if you're hit about 100 times.

    Railguns = LR death.

    Even though at least 1 LR is going to make it to the tau lines unscathed, there's no way the passengers could kill all that.

    i vote tau
    -exekiel, you seem to have a serious problem remembering to vote:shifty:

    -the tau can pop the land raiders easy, and then shoot the **** out of the guys inside, those termies are dying fast!
    Procrastination- hard work often pays off over time, but laziness always pays off now.
    Indifference- it takes 43 muscles to frown, and 17 to smile, but none to just sit there with a dumb look on your face.

    -Votewar 40K III= 1st place
    -Votewar 40k mini= 2nd place
    -Votewar fantasy 2= 2nd place

    Yeah, I've done it at least four times, and I've even made arguments for one army but accidently voted for the wrong one.

    I don't forget to vote. I just vote for an army that's fighting in a different battle:rolleyes:

    See, the idea is that the two battles are on two adjacent digital tables...

    railguns vs landraiders=railguns popping them. Deathwing peppered with shots, in such a way not seen by likes of Mark-Andre Fleury and Olaf Kolzig, that they fall and die
