Who ever said Tau sucked in Close Combat? hehe so far...
took out a squad of chaos terminators (they deep striked) with a squad of firewarriors
took out chaos lord with my shaso
-of course i shot at it a bit, then charged
took out a bunch of genestealers with crisis suits
-shoot and charge again
Tau dont suck at close combat, who needs kroot?
Ne one else have tau cc victory stories?
Very good luck you got there, my ethereal is honored with the title as a terminator killer, killed two all alone being assualted! sadly he hasn't been able to bust out the ninja skills lately.
My firewarrior squad assisted by Aunshi has taken down-
Black Templar Squad with Chaplain and Emperors Champion
Many many other Space marines
and Tyranid Gaunts
They are awesome.
Though for my regular squads of firewarriors they seem to know they are suppose to suck in close combat because they never seem to be able to hit or make saving throws. It seems to be just the way mine are.

i have a story the other way around.....
i was playing as IG. i assualted some stealth suits with a squad consisting of a IG lieutenant with a shotgun, and four lasgun-armed guardsmen. the suits went first (cover) and killed the four guardsmen. the lieutenant struck back and killed three suits with three attacks (!!!!. he passed his morale check, and i was satisfied (no more stealthsuits shooting me up ) anyways the next turn he killed another two suits, the final one missed him, and then broke and ran. the lieutenant caught and killed him.... needless to say i was amazed a 30pt model did so well. unfortunately this put him exactly 11" from a full squad of FWs who gunned him down next turn, but hey, he got those suits....
tis all luck... oshovah and aunshi aint half bad in CC tho. aunshi can screw those models with his parry and his S5... oshovah do i need to say it>...
theiurs a difference in being good at close combat and being decent. sure a squad of fire warriors of mine took down 2 lictors, but thats cuz i got so many attacks
