Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well today I went back for my second game, and lost...again...
Unfortunetly, My Eldar opponent din't show up, so the Shop owner played me again with his IG, but this time he used 2 Leman Russes, 1 Hellhound, 2 Chimeras, Assorted Heavy Weapons teams and 2 troops. I used 1 Shas'O with Plasma/Missile Pod/Multi. 3 Stealth Suits, 1 Crisis with TL Fusion/Missile Pod/HW Multi, 3 units of 12 FW, 13 Kroot, 7 Human Auxileries, 6 Pathfinders with 3 Railrifles, 13 Gun Drones(6/7) and my Railhead.
I lost because in the 3 turns until my hammerhead was destroyed heres what I roled to hit: 1, 2, 2.
We played a cleanse mission, I DSed my Gun Drones and all my suits, but he arranged his troops to not give me much room. But my Shas'O did awsome and took out one of the Russes' rear armor.
His Hellhound was, well, HELL! It accounted for 2 FW squads alone!!!
If only my Railhead had hit and killed that Russ on the first turn.....
Any Ideas on how to rectify my bad luck???
Well mike, you just have the worst luck imaginable. What i'd suggest is that you keep at it, because you've gotta win eventually :p . I don't think your list let you down, it's more of the case of a few turns of bad rolls. Everyone has a game like this sometime, so don't get down from it. Persevere for the greater good,
Oh don't think I'll give up. OHHHH NO!
I think we should play a mission where I'm the Defender!!!
That list is about 1400 pts, so I want to add anoughter Hammerhead and fill out the Crisis squad which should make my list a bit more effective!!!
Good luck with it (any luck at all would be better then the luck you had :p ). THe good thing about the game though is that you learn from your mistakes, and must adapt to any kind of field or opponent that you'll face. Tau are a reasonably difficult army to begin with, but once you're used to there playing style, you will enjoy yourself and even pull of a win or 2. Cheers,
your dice are possesed. i've had some pretty bad roll streaks, but never 3 that low in a row, get new dice and burn the old ones*nods*Originally Posted by MiketehFox
only 3 stealth suits. not saying thats not bad but 3 isnt enough for my liking. well that sux with the railhead but remember you wont be able to pop armor as good with the ionhead/plus dont get sub munitions for those ig troopers. maybe you should cleanse your dice like i did put them in some boiling water and chant some strange random words (i did i promise) and it really has hlped my dice rolling....list seems find just a little problem with the stealth suits.. good luck next time
Dont sweat it generally the Imperial Guard get owned by the Tau. This is just a case of bad luck the only thing I would suggest for a fight like that is to shoot a S10 AP1 rail to peirce throught the cheap tanks of the imperial guard
