the other day i was watching a tau player fight a tyranid army in a city fight.the tau player got destroyed badley.i myself am a tau plaer of course i do not want to see my army destroyed easly. i need advice
Although not a Tau player myself i can give you one or two pieces of advice for them. The first is i would advice you to take a large full trength unit of Kroot + hounds. This makes an excellent unit to hold buildings in cityfight. Also smart missile systms are worth there weight in gold due to the fact they can shoot enemies out of line of sight (very common in city fight)
Ask not the ruleboys a question for they shall give you three answers each true and terrifying to behold
Go with kroot. Lots of kroot.
I also agree about smart missiles, and stealth battlesuits can help, because when trying to see/hit them, it uses nightfighting rules, so its easy to hide them
Take jet packs. The ability to move and move back into cove is awesome for city fight. Steath are great for city fight with they're burst cannons. On your crisis take burst cannons, plasma rifles, and mutitracker you should always be in range and shooting down the first row. Depending on the board hammerheads can go well in city fights believe it or not be or not because of mobility where broadsides im gonna say goodbye to you can't move them and most things are gonna be in cover, where SMS are sharp but not worth over 70 pts. Kroot do nicely but don't be afriad to have 1 or 2 Fw troops. DRONE SQUAD!! these are sweet for city fight mobility + fire power+ cheap= awesome city fight warriors. HOpe it helps.

thank u all for the advice.i will use it
I would advice crisis, stealth and vroadside are a good bed for taking out the opposition
Crisis/Stealth/Drones all are priceless and almost unstopable in CityFight.
They can hop over a wall, hose the enemy and hop back over the wall out of LOS and (almost always) out of charge range.
CityFight is one of the FEW times I would take some Krootox, heres why:
a.) You normally won't take a Broadside team so a HS slot is free
b.) They add some umf to the Kroot versus high T units/monsters
c.) They look awesome
d.) With the new RF rules the Kroot gun is a tiny bit less useless.
i hear using pathfinder with railrifles is very useful in cityfights... kill genstealers.... theyll rip thru your FW with ease!!!!
