Ok, I need someone to remind me why I play DH and not Tau. Because every day, Tau look cooler and cooler, but everyone around where I live plays Tau, and I don't wanna play something that everyone else plays! So tell me why DH are cooler and why Tau are so NOT cooler! PLEASE!!!
That question aint too hard to answer at all! The grey knights look much better and r much better. The TAU r a bunch of pussies with just about no close combat ability at all! They stand at the back of the battlefield, hiding behind their guns cause without them they r weak and pathetic. Daemonhunters r unique in every way where as the TAU don't vary much at all. The only difference between TAU r their guns and armour where as the daemonhunters vary in skill, power and abilities. If u compare the armoury of the daemonhunters to any other army including TAU, u will c that we have much more to offer then most other armies. There r many other reasons y Daemonhunters r better but i can't remeber all of them. Hope this helps.
'No evil will escape the just punishment of rightenous'
YES!!!! Any other takers?
A) DH models are sooo much cooler looking!
2) Grand Master. Thats all I feel I need to say about that one.
third) FREE Deepstriking no matter what the mission says!
D) CC abilitys second to none/
whatever's after 4) The GK are not afraid to get into the fray, and the Tau just sit in the back and hire guys to sit in front of them.
5) Orbital Strike! S10 AP1! FIREY DOOOOM!
G) Tau look like they're wearing glorified cardboard boxes!
H) Playing DH/GK requires a lot more skill and tactics (as opposed to "shoot, shoot, shoot, hope the kroot shield me!"), and let's face it, is a pretty freakin' challenging army.
last) GRAND FREAKIN' MASTER. Ok, I had to say that one twice, you blame me?
Gah, give me 5 more minutes and I could probably think of another 10 reasons that DH are better than anyone else!
1) GK models are very cool, especially the terminators
2) minimum of 2 S6 CC attacks for EVERYONE in the army
3) You can choose units that can Deep Strike (at no extra cost) ALWAYS, even if the scenario doesn't allow deep strike
4) Heh, the Grand Master.
5) Great special abilities like Shrouding (Enemy shoots like night fire) and Aegis (save vs psychic power!
7) GK, if designed properly, can outshoot Tau
GK can out-close combat Tau, and keep up in CC with pure assault-oriented armies, yet retain good ranged shooting with the storm bolters.
9) More strategy to play tha Tau, who tend to just sit back and shoot.
10) Orbital Strikes! they are fun and deadly. Even if they don't hit, they make your opponent sweat. Especially useful/effective against armies that like to sit back and shoot (Tau, for example, hehe)
TAU DO NEED STRAT
i mean COME ON
tau need a strategy to help them if they DO get stuck in CC, such as wait for the enemy to get close then deep strike sum crisis///gun drons///stealth at other table edge then w8//shoot the enemy.
simple strategy but strategy all the same!!!!!
reasons to get tau.
1) cool lukin crisis suits!
2) 30" basic weapon
3)dont need CC cos most battles (this is based on my win//loss record) the opponent doesnt even get within 12 " never mind 6!
4)railgun, gotta luv it!
5)gun drones//shield drones luk cool!
No, see, I don't care why I should get Tau, because I think they're cool. I just want people to sell the idea of DH to me. Read the frickin' starting post.
Hey! You just showed me that if I start Tau, I'll become an illiterate spammer...that's bad. Thanks! The reason I posted here is because I didn't want dumbasses like you trying to convince me to join the Greater Good.
No offense to the cool Tau players out here.
Because you aren't THAT guyOk, I need someone to remind me why I play DH and not Tau
I can tell you why I picked Dh over tau.
1# versatility -- Dh has the most versatile list ive ever seen with cheap throw away troops with tons of guns like an imperial list 9cause they are inducted imperials) to the baddest of the bad space marines for hand to hand and all around woop butt factor. I mean what cant a Dh list take? or compete with? if done right a DH list can fight anyone even on their own terms and smoke them, but fighting on their terms plus takign advantage of their weaknesses is what makes you win big.
2 -- the best looking space marine models in the bloody world while tau are so plain and have no possiblilties for converting or making cool models.
3 fun factor --tau are boring as hell their turn goes like this
movement phase -- crisis suits move 6" forward. everything else stays still
shooting -- everything and their mother fires
asaault phase -- crisis suits move 6" back....
that sounds like boring in a bag to me.
Not to mention
Crappy bs skill combined with high points troops and elites? To hell with that, wheres my storm bolter and bs 4?
You know what they say, if you dont like the weather in houston...go back to where you came from
