Just had my first fight with my current list I went from 2000 to 1850 so dropped my bloodletters and put instruments on my plaguebearers sure there was a better use of 20 points but I just wanted to start playing .
5 screamers of T*
*My prefered wave
His Tau roughly
Shaso/el MP/PRwith stim inector/MT/TL(was with broadsides)
MP/PR squad of 3
MP/PR squad of 3
Mp/PR sqaud of 3
10 kroot 7 hounds
10 kroot 7 hounds
8 Pathfinders w/fish
3 broadsides with ASS
Deployment was 12 inches and we had 4 objectives.
He has me go first I get my prefered wave. I drop everything about 20 inches away no mishaps.I take 1 wound on one unit of fiends from difficult terrain and i get most everything in some sort of cover but 1 soulgrinder.SGs do next to nothing with shots. His first turn he kills the poor soulgrinder and kills the fiend with a wound and puts another wound on the unit.
My second turn i get everything in but 1 unit of PBs.....crazy.... Only one unit of fiends mishaps and i roll a 5 so they go back into reserve.With my 2 remaining SGs one fleets forward and the other drops phlegm on a unit of 3 suits and pops them. One unit of my fiends assaults his kroot I win combat but he passes leadership. My plague bearers run and take up the 2 objectives i place and 1 unit is heading towards his where his kroot are now in combat. His turn he kills 2plaguebearers and gets 2 pens on my soulgrinder destroying a weapon(mawcannon) and then getting a 1 up to a 2 which does basically nothing. He kills 4 screamers.
My turn 3 no more reserves make it I assault one unit of kroot with a SG and the other sg assaults the same unit my fiends are with. We win they run we move forward. Screamer assaults Hammerhead and kills it. His turn he downs some more fiends my screamer and puts a wound on KoS.
My turn 4 plaguebearers/fiends come into play. I get into CC with remaining suits and broadsides and SG assaults his other Hammerhead and kills it. His turn he unloads the firewarriors as a last ditch effort to do something puts a few wounds on some fiends.
My turn 5 I kill everything put his devilfish I control 3 objectives and contest 4th with a fiend.
My opponent is a decent player and his list is really similiar to my tau and a few other guys tau that we play with. My army performed as I espected with 3 av13 walkers and 2 MCs and the 3 units of fiends coming out there was way too much to be dealt with and my above average 2nd turn reserves added to this. I haven't had any really good wins lately so was kinda fun for a change.
The report is to the best of my knowledge but its pretty accurate. I am not used to so much moving and assaulting so I missed a few fleets on some of my fiends and KoS(which landed the farthest back)
It definately is a winning list!
Your opponent didn't object to that? Around where I play people aren't gonna play against armies that are that "cheesy"
Wouldn't get judged well for tournies coz it's not very fluffy and not themed
Although you did use lots of slaanesh that I love
Good win, I've never played against tau but I imagine it would be similar to playing against guard!
at my store we play to win. This list is very much fluffy. I guess you didn't read the daemon codex fluff . If it were not for the fact that plaguebearers do the best job troops can do for daemons I would take something else. Daemons as an army do very poorly mono god in an all around list. Sure they can be fun, but this is not my for fun list.
3 heavy support
1 fast attack
at least I use up most of my FOC for 1850 is pretty good. In 4th alot of the tournaments I played at guys ran bare min. troops and maxed out elites and heavy support.
Looks like a solid list and a good win.
