Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have played IG with my tau a number of times. Each time it was a harsh battle. They use basilisks to fire from behind cover into my suits killing them easy. They can have a mass of 36+ inch ap4 guns. This gives them the ability to out range firewarriors and shoot with impunity. Sadly assult is out of the question cause guard beat tau. And if you ever get into 24 inch range you are gone from the mass lasgun fire.
Any suggestions or comments?
Ps. Heavy bolters and autocannons rock against tau.
Hammerheads = bye bye infantry = move suits in to take out basilisk. Worked for me.
deepstrike things ontop of the basilisk
a suicide suit with FB + MP + MT is almost guaranteed to take it out

Make sure he doesn't take carapace armour, or you'll be really screwed.
Take a maximum amount of Gue'vasa'la units and use his miniatures to represent them, now he has to shoot at his own figures.
Deep striking on his basilisks is the only way I know to take it out.
I agree - I deep striked a heavy gun drone with twin linked FB(a battlesuit should work the same, prob better) beside a basilisk, took it out first turn with ease - 2D6 +8.
However the next match the opposition got the first turn, and shot the basilisk at the hammerhead top armour bye bye hammerhead
Also I'd take a fair few fire warriors - shock troops beware - pulse guns, hit on 4, wound on 2, no armour save - bring it on.
take a railgun hammerhead(ot two) for the submunition blasts to realy ***** of the ig player, also, i suggest you take lots of XV8 suits and give them flamers or plasmas(or both) and send either stealth suits or a few crisis after the basilisk since it's realy hard for a basilisk to hit something on the move.
your corage was great. but you have no reeal purpose for fighting as we have the greater good. - Shas' O' Mien to surrendering gue'la commander
Heavy gun drones with fusion blasters :blink: ??????I deep striked a heavy gun drone with twin linked FB
The only HGD I know have a TL Burst cannon, wich can be replaced by a single burst cannon and a markerlight, these are the rules in the Imperial Armour Update.
I've got two full squads of these things and they work wonders for me but I never saw any rules about fusion blasters.
Please, if there are official rules about this tell me where to find them .
Oh sorry I forgot to explain - there are no rules, I just stuck two spare fusion blasters on a spare gun drone, and used it for fun.
And yes, submunition railguns kick butt against IG shock troops - even with a 4+ save - wounds auto with no armour save...
By the way, can you markerlight a unit of men for the hammerhead submunitions round?
Yes you can .By the way, can you markerlight a unit of men for the hammerhead submunitions round?
Forge world has drone sentry turrets, wich can deep-strike with the use of markerlights (no deviation). They can have FB, PR, BC or MP (all twin linked).
