This was my army played against a ork army, a space marine drop pod army, and necrons.
First battle was dawn of war with 3 objectives. 1 on each sides and 1 in the middle
I started and I placed my troops on the half. and he started at the edge of the table.
I made a mistake in this round because I did not knew that the rest of my forces would come in the first turn. thought second turn so I stayed in the middle shooted 1 orc unit gone where his special char was in forget his name. (big guy in termi armour has to move d6 inch. If I knew that I went in first turn I could have destroyed his special with my broadsides and his truck. but hey for next time I wont forget.
I jumped with my commander forward so he could not let his forces come in on the side where my commander was. Plus again forgot he came in first turn.
so first turn he charged my 1st command unit what he killed offcourse. he came to the middle in the 4th turn finaly. My warriors went in devilfish and just went back went out and each time he came to close I hopped in. I killed most of his army he killed 1 fire warrior unit. the game was in the end a draw because nothing was contested.
2nd battle was capture 2 points each had a objective was against space marine. He had his special char the termi guy. he had 2 squads of termi and 2 tactical 1 sqaud of stern guard and a dreaght not. ( sorry for spelling).
I putted my fire warriors in the devil fish we had to put diogonal on. I setted the sniper teams and the broad side in the corner where my objective was. He came in first turn with 2 drop pods. dreath and tactical. did not do anything. I killed with sniper team 4 marines and stunnend the dreadought. the dreadnought went after the hammerhead whole game while I was just flying away shoot on targets that mattered. My devilfishes went full out to the objective he had was undefended. I claimed it in 2nd turn all my warriors where there.
Funny thing was that that mission everything came in reserve. the suits that is. since I did not know where his pods where gona land. So his termi came down assault and the special char killed my broadside and sniper teams. rest of turn he did nothing really. my turn my 3x battlesuits came on the board and killed the assault termi expect 1. destroyed the pod with the beacon so he had to scatter everytime. and his sternguard btw went down close to the firewarriors but they where save in turn 2 they where still in the devilfish. They came out and rapidfire on the sternguard he had to do 3 a 4 saves on 9 stern and killed them all in 1 turn was so cool.
3th turn his 4th droppod came down he wanted to contest the objective by landing next to it. he failed thank god and scattered 14 inch away from it. his second tactical came out and what I dont get he shot on my devilfish. his termi with marneus calgar when to the objective becase 1 of the sniper team was still there. and his remaining tactical whent there was 4 left.
my turn finaly 1 command squad came in and blasted the tactical unit at my objective to nothing. my fire warriors killed the tactical squad for 1 left. and my other suits killed 2 termi and 1 wound on calgar. and my hammerhead destroyed that chasing dreadnought.
5th turn he went to my objective with his termi to contest it. I had 1 Objective so he could not win he came forward but he could not get in range of my firewarriors so next turn I killed that 1 assault termi. and my last command came on the board infront on calgar was the team with the plasma rifles. killed the whole termiteam and calgar victory for me.
3th battle against necrons.
Was my brother. he had to begin with the dice. so He setted up his army. He had 2 monoliths. 30 necrons, 1 lord with orb, 5 destroyers, 8 flayedones inteam with the lord. and a group of immortals.
He setted up over the whole table so I setted up my army in 1 corner where the necrons where the weakest.
I rolled a 6 for the seze ini. hehehe. So I started killed a 10 man necron team and killed the monolith that was on my side.
His turn he had to just move forward he did offcourse shot with the destroyers on a commander team did 1 wound on a bodyguard.
2nd turn I killed his destroyerteam in 1 time and killed like 5 warriors.
he came closer and killed 1 sniperteam. his monolith did a blast on my commander unit but I he did 2 hits so I save the bodyguard on failed on the drone.
my turn I killed a few warriors rest was bad rolling and was not in range of me yet.
3th turn he teleported the lord and flayed ones through the monolith and charged at a fire warrior group he killed t offcourse with ease. and killed a sniper team he was very close with that unit so I turned my fire to that unit with all my heavy shit plasma and melta killed the unit and the lord was on the ground.
4th turn he rolled for his commander a 2 haha. dead lord. the rest of the battle was nothing much really I had to kill 6 more in my turn and he phased out was easy at 1 side was in the open was a group of 6 killed that with ease with my commander there plasma etc. and then of the immortals I shooted on them with all my broadside he had 1 left. his turn rolled 2 bad so phased out. Win for me WEEE.
I guess when reading this its boring. But hey I won and I am happy. Victory for tau
FOR THE GREATER GOOD.
- 2 shas'els arent necassary, if anything drop one and make the other a shas'o
- use the points for a stealth team or more fire warriors
- lose the sniper teams
- maybe a few pathfinders
There are three kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who cannot.
I am not here to check the army . was just telling my battle and with what I was fighting.
Plus I rather have a shas'el then shas'o its cheaper with the TA.
Pathfinders is nice but expensive.
The stealth teams is good yeah but I tried it with this army nothing could get close to my fire warriors because when they where in charge range I just pack in devilfish and move back.
Congratulations on your victories and on scoring 2nd!
Battle reports should go in the battle reports forum. There you won't have to bother with people giving you advice on how to change your list and there everyone can enjoy it, instead of only the Tau players...
Maybe a mod will move this thread into the battle reports section for you.
