A Predator equipped with these equipments "should" hurt Tau:
Chaos Predator (Autocannon, Heavy Bolter Sponsons,
Demonic Possession, Parasitic Possession) 150 pts
Of course, this is the cheapest Predator, that can have Parasitic Possession for its lower point cost, as it was intended, i guess.
It can fire 8 AP4 shots, and ignores half of the glancing hit table, while it can repair 4s and 5s on it. As for penetrating hits, it ignores 1s, and can repair 2s and 3s.
So, glancing hits from Missile Pods on the front armour, or glancing hits on the side from Burst Cannons pose a much little threat, and the vehicle can move 6" and still fire all its weapons.
It can hunt for Fire Warriors, Pathfinders, Gun Drones, Human Aux. and Kroot.
Btw, i am clearly not stating, that it can sustain Rail Gun fire for long.
You have a point, that would shred a lot of tau very quickly, but would become a prime rail gun target just as fast. 8 Tau won't amount to 150 points, so you may find yourself wasting a lot of points because something looks good on paper. Unless it happens to be very expensive tau. Not that I know of any, but meh. You know what I'm getting at.
I'd keep it cheap and use it as a railgun distraction.
They're afraid of it hitting their lines. Obviously it's not a good thing if it does....As such, use their paranoia.
get a defieler it will kill sqauds quicker and place 72" from the enemy
heh what he said.Originally Posted by Chaotic Fury
it takes you out of railgun sight, and allows you to pummel them back with shooty power ^_^
ya i agree, if you sticking with the predator, u at least need one set of lazcannons so you can take out there armor, cause 13 is not joke, and the rest be heavy bolts cause they eat throught tau like no ones buisness.
if not i would highly recommend the defilers its really good, you can have the havic launcher to much troops, and auto or lor laz to much armor, and then you have the battelr cannon wich munches troops like crazy and armor as well, and if you worried about it being popped get the demonic armor thing so it have 13 front and side armor,and then you can pay for indirect fire so you can hide it and blast troops and stuff with out it being shot.
i personaly use, well always 1 defiler, and if it liek a1850 ususally 2.
not only are they amazing models to look at there amaizng on the field
Indirect fire is a godsend vs tau...but keep in mind to smite railguns....Albative wounds.
If you have a 10 man havok squad with LasCannons + TankHunters (or lose TH vs broadsides) they will need 10 railgun shots to kill that squad....vs 1 rail gun shot to kill a tank or some such.
