    its kind of strange if you assault them before you shoot them , i mean , if you can get to them in the first turn and be able to assault them streight away id go for that but a majority of you troops will not be in range to assault them first ( apart from assault marines of coarse ) so its natural to shoot them first and then assault them .

    By shooting first I think he ment actually devoting some time to shooting.

    For instance BA is an "assault army" yet every time I play against them they fire there bpistols at me right before the charge. They are still charging me as asoon as possible.

    If you are gonna "shoot before assault" I think that means actually devoting time and actions to laying into them with guns. IE, rushing up a tac squad to rapid fire ( yes I know I klnow this would be a horrible tactic against Tau, I was just using it as an example).

    2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers

    Charge them&#33;
    Cut them to pieces&#33;
    Crush them under your heel&#33;
    Beat them with the but of your bolter&#33;
    Trample them&#33;
    Ride over them with your crusaders&#33;
    Smash their heads with your dreads&#33;
    Grind their bones&#33;
    Strangle them with their guts&#33;
    Bash them with your head&#33;

    I play BA, but all my units have the option to sit and shoot if need be (heavy weapon in each tac squad even the ones that move forward). So I would say assault, but when the oppertunity shows itself shoot him up, especially if hes over aggresive (ha Tau player, yeah right).

    I would have to agree... The only problem i ever run into is his crisis suits, thats only because Tau are that scared of my Templars&#33;

    tanks? terminators? against Tau?

    you want to use assault marines. as many of them as you can get. I usually have 20 in 1500 points.

    add some tacticals (around 20) and some close combat scaouts and maybe a whirlwind (really cool against massed firewarriors and Kroot).

    add some chracters with jumppacks (a chaplain works wonders) and you pretty much have a sure win.
    Shut up and play.

    My tactic would be devoting some special units to firing at the Tau (scouts with sniper rifles are excellent for this) while assualt squads, my librarian, and some tactical marines in rhinos rush up to get into close combat.

    I take a combat commander, and then two tactical squads, 1 with a lascannon and 1 with a heavy bolter, for vehicles and troops respectivly, and then horde on anti infantry stuff, like dreads and land speeders. Then, I use deep striking terminators to power fist rear armour, and then storm bolter and assault cannon from behind the tau lines&#33; Thing with assault marines is they take up too many points, and i ALWAYS get the bigger packs ending up under the template as a partial hit, whcih means they get immolated. A tau s worst enemy is a veteran squad with a flamer and lightning claws, they just cant take the heat&#33;

    What I do is have an assault force going up one of the flanks, quite a strong one and assault them with it, I also have a small firebase to shoot at the Tau as well because I want to be doing damage to them while I am moving over to them.
