Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have a newbie trying out Tau. He wants me to teach him by playing.
He'll have a Battlesuit commander (on his own), 2 Minimal Fire warrior Teams, and a Hammerhead.
What Should I take? I'm thinking of going for the equivalents... 2 Minimal Squads, Predator, & Commander.
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
Use assault squads and show him how tau can be owned
Or go for a more common SM, using 2 Tac, Chap and 1 Dev or something like that. No one will use tanks against Tau anyway
Nami kotogotoku, waga tate to nare. Ikazuchi kotogotoku, waga yaiba to nare.
I think that you should use a commander and one tactical squad then add a dreadnought to show him how walkers are used, maybe a minimized squad of scouts too and your force-organisation chart is complete.
Tanks are fairly effective against Tau - I play both Tau and BA, so I should know. The only thing you have to think about is to stay out of los from broadsided and hammerheads. Use other squads with heavy weapons to take out his tanks. Thing is - the Whirlwind is murder against Tau...
