hello. yesterday i played a 40K game with my Black Legion army for the first time in ages, against a tau and Kroot army. the tau just killed all but one basic marine squads. its insane. S5 Ap4 basic guns. then they have those nasty jump plasma gunny Battle suits. :eek:
in the end it was a draw possibly a victory to the forces of chaos but that was only becasue squad uber (Marines withh 2CCW and a lightening clawed champ with rerolls and my lord with a dark blade) found the squishy bits in the army (they killed all 20 kroot a master shaperthree gnarlocs and then one battle suit 12 Tau and a ethreal) the squad consolidated through the army.
does anyone else play against the tau and how do you beat them??
What are your faveortie squads to use against them, and what do you adivse not to use?
what would you give your lord?
That's the thing with Tau, IG, Eldar and Necrons. They outshoot us, so standing and shooting them is going to be a way to lose. Play to their weakness and get into CC with them. In games with them in the future be sure to use more CC squads. Only use shooting squads as support squads, mostly for anti-tank, that do not make up the bulk of your army.

Chaos Marines (3000)
yeah, tau outshoot most things,lol. raptors(if u got some) are good coz they r cc and fast. also rhino's(again,if u have them) are wikid. ummm oh, and using d. flight with your lord and maybe d. essence so u live abit longer while flying down the line. as soon as you get into cc you basically rape him silly. good luck killing all his tau in your next game.
also chaos bikers will help alot, their fast and with turboboost can take quite a beating
Take some Bezerkers (as elites) and a Bloodthirster. Watch the puny yellow armoured freaks cower in a corner.

Remember to max out your squad sizes, that way it will take your opponent longer to gun you down.
In space marine armies, I sometimes get the feeling that your tanks and your other fancy stuff is rather pointless, opposed to what you guys can do with just marines, marines and more marines. A dev squad with 4x heavy bolters, a tank hunting dev squad with 4x missile launchers, and 2 or 3 tac squads with bolters all maxed out, and perhaps a whirlie to back them up is one of the scariest thing I can think of. Just an oppinion from acruss the table.
ah i like the D.flight idea.
my army at mo is as follows
Lord with +1T +1W plasma pistol Dark blade (and some other bits i cant member!)
7 Plauge marines infiltrate
Leader with power sword and nurgles rot
8 marines one with heavy bolter champ
8 marines champ
8 marines CCWs Champ with MC Lighteneing claws in rhino with Lord
leader with d talons
4 marines one with meltagun one with plasma pistol infiltarte
Drednaught (Atrobillious the deceased!) lascanons and CCW Deamonic hull possesion paresetic! unkillable.
my raptors got killed as they were in a s~~~ possition. oblitorators should have been in a diff position across the board. Atrobillious the deceased killed crisis suits at his leisure.
i would like some of the new termies but they would be opened like tins.
HA! tell that to my dread that took 4 lascannons to the face... it happens every game... gotta hate those SMs DevistatorsOriginally Posted by danjones87
Well against Kroot I send a Lieutenant with speed, strength, MoN and a Manreaper. The rest I try to kill with meltaguns, plasmaguns and lascannons. Get into CC with all those warriors and you will kill them in mass.
If the guy moves with all his skimmers then you just need to hit them until you kill them. Lucky shots help a lot and predator tanks too Got to love those.
Id rather have Obliterators than a Preditor... or Terminators for that matter... or a Dreadnought... or... the list goes on and on
