i was wondering how to beet the tau and chaos in a free for all standard annihation misson
let your mind free on this one
tau is simple for me drop pod assault works well as well as anti infantry landspeeders. tau suck at assault. they are kinda like ig in that area. as for chaos thats tough. it really depends what the other player is fielding. typically and more shooty based army fairs better. its no fun assaulting squads of chaos marines. vidicator and a dev squad is probably a good combo against chaos. hope i helped a little plenty of people will respond with better ideas lol
A moment of weakness spawns a life tme of heresy...
Bikes. By the truckload. They'll be able to get to the Tau and wipe them out before they can fire more than twice, and then you'll be able to swing round to the Chaos scum without losing any maneuverability.
Its simple CC for tau both shooting and CC for chaos
From the other side of the fence
You need to get into CC with tau and take out the hammerheads before they launch sub munitions. For chaos, fight at long range, plasma cannons, whirlwinds etc. Chaos will kill you in CC so avoid it if possible or charge them if you have too, if they charge you its over before it began.
the new landspeeder storms loaded interrupt tau gun lines nicely. Chaos is chaos, i go for balance and plasma weapons. Also the bikes suggestion is a good one
"All of the tainted shall fall before me".
i have got a old list from a long time ago this is it
3 x tac squad 2 x las 1xmulti-melta 3x flamer 180 180 170
1x rhino 35
1x droppod 35
thunder fire cannon 100
devastators 2xheavy bolter 2x missile launcher
attackbike multi-melta 50
what do i need to chance??
let your mind out
i cant get the points for it but i maby do it becose i want a wrhilwind for long range indyrect fire power but i stil need to find out what to drop
keep it coming people
Drop one of your TacSquads (one with a lascannon), and use those points to buy a couple of upgrades (e.g. lightning claw, combimelta) for your captain, Extra Armour for the Rhino, a Whirlwind and some powerfists in those remaining TacSquads.
I'd also probably not take the drop pod as it's not so useful in a 3way FFA, and will likely result in one of your squads getting massacred.
With whatever points you have left another MM on the 'Speeder wouldn't go amiss, or a Razorback/2nd Rhino.
