Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was just in my local games workshop and had a little look at the tau codex and glanced at the gun wich has 10 strength and wondered could anything in the tau army take down the necron god at all?????
Be the best or die like the rest!!!!
the nightbringer? i've taken it out with a railgun.
When I kick KHORNE'S butt I stick the remains on a KOB and eat them...
Oh man my signature sucks...
lol but its not like a nightbringer couldnt barbeque a hammerhead

I actually have a slug living in YOU, right now...
Slowly will start playing: Iyanden, and Chaos.
The tau have several weapons that could take on the nightbringer:
Railgun (Best of the best), Plasma Rifle (ole' Faithful), Missile Pods (Nice range and strength), fusion blasters (tank-toasters), and finally rail rifles (smoke em if you've got em)
Now, this means that only four things in the Tau army can take on the Nightbringer, Hammerheads, Crisis Suits, pathfinders w/ railrifles and Broadsides. The Railgun is the only thing that could reliably wound it, and the Nightbringer will always get a save and has several wounds to burn through, other than the fusion blaster, you'll be rolling 5's and 6's just to wound the sucker with everything else. To take him out you'll be pumping several turns of railgun fire into him from your broadsides and hammerheads, and if you get desperate, your crisis suits can take a swing at him. Other than that, forget it, that beast is going to tear you a new one, IF you let him. He moves six inches a turn, run circles around his God-like butt and toast the rest of his army.
Given that the C'Tan are toughness eight (or some such nonsense) and only have that 4+ I save, Missile pods are probably going to be your best bet (well, along with rail guns). A plasma rifle's good AP is wasted, and it's not really strong enough to hurt them all that reliably, while using a fusion blaster really just means that you're way too close.
Missile pods are strong enough to hurt them with enough range to hit them safely. However, if a C'tan is on the board, it's unlikely that there's anything that will be more deserving of your rail gun fire.
Dude, if it's not a vehicle, pulse rifles will work. Seriously, what's wrong with having FW shoot at it? You should get 1 wound a turn a that way.
Also, every one is forgetting seeker missles. 40 pts worth and a pathfinder team at 36" could gut the the thing.
If your fighting Necron, Your Fire Warriors will have more pressing targets then a freaking C'tan.
Save the big guys, for our big guys.
Agreed. Take out the CTan ASAP with Hammer heads and braod sides.
If you get desperate by turn 3 or 4, allocate maybe 2-3 crisis suits to it. Let your FW and XV8's deal with those damn WBB rolling biatches. take out as many warrios as you can, and as TT said. leave there big guys to our guys, and use our little guys, to take out there little guys.
Now, what to we do about destryers and heavy detroyers ? Crisis suits ?
A wise man once said: Blow me @$$wipe :lol:
Don't target the big guy until you get rid of the destroyers. Those are both fast and can tear you apart. I'd use my Hammerheads to first take them out. As Maus said, he moves 6 inches. Run circles around him later.
What lies at the bottomless gulf between the soul and the heart?
