How do I go about beating a tau player. I have Des Lord, 24 warriors, 6 scarab swarms, 2 wraiths, and 2 flayed ones(they let me use them anyways). I know that my friend will be using fire warriors, O'Shova(spelling), kroot, and that hammerhead thing(the one that has the rail gun ontop). If I had a 'lith I would just waltz that thing up there and warp all my troops into range and/or CC. Im probably gonna get some destroyers or heavy destroyers on saturday. Depends what my local shop has in stock. Thanks.
well definitly get some destroyers as their guns will breeze through his fire warriors. also just so you know your freind cant use Kroot in an army that is led by O'shovah. Just so you know.
Ill post more later, as it is i am in a hurry. Good luck

Yeah I just talked to him and he said he wasnt going to use his kroot. Thanks for that helpful bit of information.

this should be a cake walk. all you have to worry about (kinda) is the hammerhead. throw d.fields on the scarabs, or get some destroyers (NOT heavy destroyers, theyre useless) trained on the thing and you're set. the wraiths + d.lord should be able to own in CC. 24 inch movement into cover (so you dont get shot), and then move the rest of the way into his character. you should be able to kill him without too much of a hassle. other than that just march everything straight forward. tau tend to lack the fire power against use necrons.
another hint (although you may not be able to do it so well with so few scarabs), forming a big line of scarabs and sending them into multiple combats ties up his units, and blocks los for firing. this gives you time to move your destroyers round a flank (to mow the tau down later), and advance your warriors. as you'll have your lord and wraiths sitting around to go after his character the scarab thing could work, if you can avoid getting blown up on the way there.
Might I suggest purchasing a third Wraith? A full unit is extremely powerful, if used wisely.. Especially against Tau
An elderly woman with a walker is an effective unit in CC with tau. I prefer flayed ones vs. tau since there's more attacks and the I difference doesn't matter and neither does the str really. Plus flayed ones can infiltrate and sweep in from one side to keep your tau friend from flanking you.
ya Flayed Ones are great, but you have to remember if he manages to knock everything down theres no getting back up. Flayed Ones in rapid fire range of too many tau, along with whatever else he has would be risky. To prevent this from happening you need to have many things for him to worry about, or hide them in cover until some fast attack units can tie him up.
