My way of destroying the tau
I have heard so many ways to beat the tau but here is the best one.
Weapons that will destroy the tau vehicles.= Auto-cannon, lascannon, all melta weapons, missle launchers.
Weapons that will destroy most of there troops.= bolters, missle launchers, plasamas. And mostly all the weapons. The ones stated are one hit ko weapons.
Vehicles needed.= any predator, bikes, whirl wind, and if enough points a land raider crusader.
Guys needed.= Standard organisation. Chaplian with a command squad with a raxor back, four squads of troops, equiped with lascannons. Scouts with missle launcher and infiltrate them. Vets if can get them into close combat. Dreadnaught either one. Assault termies. Assault squads with meltas. Devastators.
Tactic is infiltrate your scouts shott at the vehicles. With your four anti-tank weapons take out the vehicles. HINT: make sure you destroy the deadliest ones destroyed first.
As for the troops shoot the hell out of them. And then get the guys drop podding and deep striking in there then get in close combat with the tau. Then get the guys shooting in the close combat if wanted.
All my opinoin from my expieriences. If you think anything is wrong with what I have please give some suggestions.Crusade.
Well man, you could try that thread up top.
"Space Marines vs ~"
Seriously, it's a good thread. There's a post with anti-Tau stuff coming out it's ears.
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
Best way of destroying tau: Assault
If he's fielding an Etheral then better still- just drop pod/deep strike near him and kill him off. Then watch everything unfold.

Current armies: Deathwing and Grey Knights (I'd have more if my wife would let me)
You don't even need to assault, just field about 60-80 space marines and kill anything that moves. I can garauntee any Tau list you fight won't be able to handle that many power armored troops.

Ultimate anti tau tactic-
Take a (or 2) librarian with fear of the dark in a drop pod (with a cheapass command squad) and just drop down and make the tau run.
Taking LD tests on -2 is lethal to tau so you could quite easily make a large portion of the army run away.
Sorry, the following post is going to be pure SPAM! (I do not do this usually, but I can't resist here...)Originally Posted by The_Outsider
I am imagining a Brother-Librarian and a squad of his warrior brethren pressed into the metal coffin of a drop pod. The grim and stern faces staring into the nothing, bodies shaken as the pod rumbles in the winds and atmospheric disturbances on its ridiculously fast descent towards the field of battle. And all the while the pods internal sound system runs Iron Maiden - Fear of the Dark at maximum volume...
They're right. An infiltrated/drop podded/deepstruck librarian with FotD is totally brutal against Tau.
We all carry on,
When our brothers in arms are gone.
So raise your glass high
For tomorrow we die,
And return from the ashes you call.
