Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys, the first round (500pts ) of a tournament that I joined starts next Sunday. My first opponent leads Tau and this is the list that I'm taking.
5 Dire Avengers + Exarch
Dual Avenger Shuri Catas
6 Howling Banshees + Exarch
My opponent has 2 units of fire warriors a broadside and a crisis suit if I'm not mistaken
I'm dooming the crisis suit who my banshees will inititially strike for, eldritch storm is to add some protection from shooting while I set my banshees into striking position
The avengers will take on fire warriors weakened by eldritch storm as well as provide more cover fire for my banshees as a swift advance into close combat to try and negate shooting is my general plan
The pathfinders are going to target the broadside and apply pressure on my opponent creating a threat zone as my other troops advance
I'm relying on my banshees to engage and destroy my opponents hq as well as clean up the remaining enemy units
I would include more avengers but I only have 5 at the moment and I won't be able to get more in time for this tourney
The point value for my army comes out to 455 I'd really appreciate feedback and advice thank you all!
Im not sure about using eldritch storm (then again i dont normally field a farseer) with only s3 and no ap its not going to cause alot of damage. Mind War is always a fun way to take out a crisis suit or broadside.
Pathfinders are a good choice, i find i draw alot of fire with them, my aponent knows when to be scared, just set the up and roll some 5s and 6s against the broadside
cant think of much else really, war shout can be ditched if you need the points cause you shouldnt have any trouble with tau in cc,
