wats the best way to defeat the tau with tthe dh pure gk army? Plz enlighten me!!!!!!!!
Well young mortal sense I also play Dh (If you can't beat'em Join'em) Try this.
1st lots of Psycannon,
2nd get in to close combat as soon as possible
3rd remember that DH have alot of stuff to take away Invuln saves and Most good Tau generals rely a great deal on Shield drones with I belive 4+ invuln saves.
4th I do not recomend playing an all DH army but if you must use your teleport attacks to make fast attack GK squads to get behoind and in to close combat quick.
5th orbital strike your best friend (be sure To prepare the way with lots of small terrain) for quick and easy Target slection.
Try this for starters it has worked for me so far (I have won 5 out of 5 battles against Tau so far with my DH army) and get back to me on how it works in your neck of the woods
yeah but also b very careful of there crisis and stealth suits cause there a big pain in the ass with their bug guns and jump packs.
'No evil will escape the just punishment of rightenous'
Right you are Frosty! Stealth suits kill those heritics fast quick and in a hurry use Assassins if possible.
umm well for starters eversor assasins tear the crap out of tau and kroot (plus they are the cheapest assasin)
like lord toast said psycannons are your friend as they dont allow fire warriors or drones any saves
also teleporting squads and termies can really disrupt the tau battle plans
"I am the architect of fate!"
I think shrouding, psycannons and orbital strikes are your best friend against tau -
DSing against a full squad or two of crisis suits is suicidal in my opinion -
CC against tau is great but very hard to accomplish, a good tau player will almost never leave his strong units (crisis suits and stealth suits) in charge range and he will happily let you destroy his cheap fire warriors
how can i counter his path finders, those things have 72 inches of firing range... would a vindicare assasin do any good in my army..
last quiestion, how can i take on those crisis suits?
Get a psycannon purgation squad, shrouding gives you a good defense at 36" away. Also, get the Callidus in there, Tau are even more vulnerable to her abilities than most armies.
simple stay at 36" inches and have at least 5 psycannons and unleash holy hell. He will more often then not fail the shroading and you will be forcing break tests left and right.
Then deep strike in with FA squads on whats left.
Dont deep strike against the tau. The ammount of rapid fire shots they get, espically plasma, will decimate any squad that comes down. The shrowding is your friend. Follow the advice on purgatory squads. If your using allied marnes take wirlwinds. They shred tau.
