    Well w/o knowing your army list i cant be that helpfull. but here are a few pointers.
    the worst thing on the tau army list has got to be broadsides. these should be taken out first turn or as soon as possible. the next thing you want to go after will be the hq and elites in crisis suits you can pretty much ignore most of there foot sloggers since if they try to move w/ in range they can only fire once 12" out instead fo the full 30". kroot are weak as well and just send a squad of striking scorpions or banshees to knock em off. to take care of the broadsides and the crisis suites try using vipers or some heavy tanks with crystal targeting matrix. this will allow you to hide behind cover denying the rail guns LOS and then pop them a good one with the star or prism cannon. other than that hope it all works out.

    I may have a solution.

    Tau are te most horrible assaulters in the game, if you can get units that move 12 inches or put them in a Wave serpent or falcon and get them into close combat early then your gonna have a much easier time defeating them. Since the only really good assaulters they have are Kroot, or maybe that one special charcter they have, for got his name, but he has some kind of strange blade. Or get lots of dark reapers and crap loads of Star cannons and just launch massive amounts of fire power at them. Fight Fire with fire is prbobley the best solution, and if they have and rail guns, target those units first. Use a seer council with that warlock ability to double psyker ranges and mind war the hell out of them.

    You dont want to get in a fire fight against tau with eldar. Id have one or two Fire Prisms then the rest of your army are assult troops in wave serpents but this would be an expensive money wise

    `Im a tau player here to help
    Broadsides infiltrate striking scorpiones and prisms, and big guns with cristal targeting matirx.
    Crisis= howling banshies(wave serpent), striking scorpions(wave serpent), avatars FIREDRAGONS, AND DARK REAPERS ALLOW NO ARMOR SAVES TO CRISIS!!!
    Firewarriors=Warpspider shread through them, dire adenger, guardian with starcannon murder, and holy crap darkreaper destroy squads.
    Steathsuits=starcannon own hear.

    War walker with dual starcannon take care of all of my battle suits but tend to be railgun magnets

    Same with wraith lord both scare the crap out of me

    any particuly question you might have just ask me.

    It is foolish to oppose the Tau.

    If ytou take a look in the tau connection with c&#39;tan we have proved that they would probably be very good allies. I makes since according to fluff, and i used a tau/eldar army and it owned. First shot of the game was a prism tank and it destroyed a leman russ.

    tau kinda suck, just assault them. they die. dont gear up to shoot the crissis, in fact, dont plan to get a single shot at any of them, because a good tau player always ALWAYS hops his suits. assault the suits and they are screwed. striking scorpions would be nice. broadsides are not very moblie, so take advantage of that.
