So far i've played a total of 2 games both against tau (a new player started with me) ... My results so far game 1 i tabled him, game 2 he had his hammerhead left alive and killed a total of 7 space marines!
This is not meant to be an "i'm imba" post... this is a str / tough / ws / bs / ini 4 and power armour post... I dont think i am any more tactically astute than my oponent, if anything u would say it was the other way around.
my army consists of the starter box, some scouts and a razorback...
So here's the thing... are most battles its fairly easy for me while my opponent has to work hard to kill the boys in blue? if so where is the fun? I mean we all like winning but where's the satisfaction when its jut because i have the blue stuff surrounding the superhuman bodies?
please give me the benefit of your experience.. why do you stick with SM?
Are you playing by a set point cost limit? Because if your matching sqaud for sqaud and unit for unit SM are pretty much unbeatable. If hes tau he should stay back and shoot, shoot, shoot! You will always have to move foward vs tau because they cant be matched in shooting by SM.
If you give us your list and your friends list im pretty sure we could see why your winning so easy as you claim.
P.S when playing competative games of 40k SM are nowhere near the best imho.
captain artificer / relic blade / bolter
tactical 10 man ML + flamer razorback / HB
scout 5 man snipers + ML
3 bikes attackbike HB

6 fire warriors
6 fire warriors
xv 88 railgun + missile (could fire both)
hammerhead ion cannon
we played annihalation. he got all his reserves by turn 3 ... i had to wait and wait for my bikes and scouts (turn 5) even outnumbered i outshot him in the shooting phase and when i finally got across to assault him... well i dont need to go into too many details (even sounts equipped for shooting make short work of tau)
I was thinking the same thing... The tau list is very weak vs, alot of armies i would think.
