Welcome to Librarium Online!
i need help for a tourni and how the F**k do you beat tau... i just cant do it
to beat tau with sms is fairly easy get in cc! well anyways... PLASMA cannons are ure friends while tau are not AS expensive as space marines they are not cheap and plasma cannons ignore their armor save have a blast template and auto wound those nice expensive units fire warriors stealth suits pathfinders etc etc... and they are good for decimating large units of kroot that you are scared of... and cc is ure friend against them remember that! that should be it I hope you win....
CC will annihilate tau. Heavy bolters and plasma cannons will kill off fire warriors quick so i would recomend a devastator squad. I would also say get some lassconnons to take out tanks and snipe of the ethereal and also some broadsides. Put them in your tactical squads that way he has to worry about many targets and not just your land raider. Whirlwinds are the biggest MUST HAVE equipment against Tau. They will make short work of fire warriors especially if the enemy likes to huddle large squads together. i'm guessing your using B.A. because of a past battle report i know of... take a devastator suad with 3 plasma cannons and 1 heavy bolter, whirlwind, land raider or dread with lasscannons and missle launcher, 2 tactical squads with a lasscannon in both and try to give both a razorback with lasscannons for transports. Veteran assult squad with Jump packs. deploy your veterans opposite of your death company and give your death company jet packs and a chaplain. Stratagy: shoot all the big toys with your lasscannons and firewarriors with your devastator squad and whirlwind. When you kill all tanks and battle suits charge in with your jump packs and tactical squads. try to keep you jump packs hidden and also your whirlwind. My brother and father always beat me with this stratagey. Good luck and if you roll good then you will have out shot the Tau.
Tau'Va Gue'O :a
(for the greater good human commander)
P.S. if any tau can help me with stratagy to counter this strtagey then please post :ph34r:
If you charge a bunker and die, its called being reckless, but if you charge the bunker and win, it's heroic!
I would have to say that you want to spread out your artillary I would suggest that you make smaller squads with the SM moral special rules that shouldn't be a problem. Tau can take down anything so if you put to many points into one sqaud then thats just bad news, every time I've I faced Tremies they been a waste of points for the oppostion so mount them or if possible deepstrike. For the most part I don't like a whole lot to shoot at and to further that taking 3 assault troops and rushing them not only gives me a lot of targets but It'll make me panic. Go for the crisis suits, when I play SM I heavily depend on them to lead me victory, take them away quick, they take down SM quick sometimes up to 2 squads a turn depending on the numbers. Its a good idea to take out any hammerheads on the field for that your going to need devastater squad with 1 or 2 lascannons, this is a must, hammerheads do damage if they aren't properly cared for....Tanks are bad choice against Tau unless your useing them to rush up the field because I take out every tank on the field regardless of bad rolls, railguns are great. The only thing you can really do about Broadsides is take them out near the end of the game, unless the person you play sucks at positioning, these are beasts the great weapons and are usual gaurded by the good'ol "Tau Meatsheild" not only ar these hard to get through but the weapons on the BS will rip you up when you get close to. Don't worry about Stealth anyone who takes them aainst SM is a fool because they wasted 150 pts. Don't underestimate firewariors and kroot but don't be intimitaded by them, once your within 30" your in for a lot of shots but don't worry your a playing space marines they're made to take pansy shots, though don't be supirsed when some get through, once you destroy these troops the rest of the army is opened up to be killed, so its a good idea to take blast weaps to kill'em quicker. Have fun losing to Tau.....joke
