    I play Tau and Orks.
    Footsloggers are doomed, unless the person using them is damn good, and can use terrain to their advantage. If the Tau player is wise however, he will use a mix of HH with submunitions and plenty of firewarriors, with no suits other than perhaps Stealth. Crisis/ broadsides will not be worth it (even with burst cannon) as their lack of manouverability (in the case of broadsides) and too much of it (for crisis and stealth) will put them in a good position to be charged. Mass pulse rifles will win in this battle. If you use a mekked army, most of your vehicles will die, but you can get close enough quickly to get into cc. If a transport dies, set up the entangled mob behind the dead transport to prevent the aformentioned pulse rifle fun. Crisis suits will be much more of a problem, as youv'e sacrificed numbers for momentum and bigger guns. They will dance around you, and if you commit a unit to hunt them down, they won't get back to the main battle before the end.

    I run some foot stoggas and they do just fine, but I havent played much since they came out with fourth edition. What does it say about custom force fields, I always had four fo those in mine.
