    Tau vs Necron deployment example needed!

    As you probably remember from my recent posts, I have described a simple(?) method to make "battle situation maps" similar to the ones in White Dwarf battle reports. Now I want to add a realistic example, but suffer from the fact that I am not really a gamer... Well, look at my website (section "Elaborate
    example!") and you see what I mean... :blush:

    Now, therefore, I turn to you, my fellow forum comrades, humbly asking if any of you would like to help me create a realistic deployment example. If you do, I ask you to make a good effort to produce a realistic, competitive army list and deployment and then let me publish it on my web site. You will, of course, get a corresponding by-line and my gratitude!

    The fictitious game is 1500 pt "Take and Hold" (Alpha) Tau vs Necron. The terrain, objective and deployment zones are already given by my example. Deployment is "blind", the opponents do not see the other party's deployment until both are done deploying. So, how would you select and deploy a force in this case?

    If you are a reasonably experienced gamer and seriously interested in helping me, PM or mail me and we will work out the details. (You do not need PowerPoint, I will do the drawing. As long as you are able to describe the deployment I will put the symbols where you tell me to!)

    Um, why don't you just copy one of White Dwarf's deployments since you are attempting to emulate them so?

    Record as of 26 December for my Static Tau Cadre.
    10 wins, 0 losses, and 1 draw.
    Last game: Victory over Necron in a 600 point "kill em all" that lasted til turn 10 ending with a phase out.

    For one thing, they are copyrighted... Also, it is "cooler" to have a specially made example :p

    Why don't you post a blank map and let the whole Tau forum take a crack at it? It would create some fun debate I think.

    Well, the blank map is there: Basic map (i.e. background only, nothing in foreground).! Have a go, the entire forum, all at once!!

    something like that. you don't give much for the tau to hide behind to be honest, but at least the stealths and crisis suit have something to jsj from.

    ok, very hard to read >_<

    The Big problem with necron is the monolith's deep strik, it may land on you troops (and move them) and shoot the crap out of them! If the nercron player dosn't use the you can stealth suit's (night rule and save 3+ :p ) and make a wall in front of you troops if you give you hammerheads the disruption pod and plads them at the end of the table they are hard to hit (use skimmer rule and move min. 6" too).


    some thing like this:
    s = stealthsuit
    f = firewarrior
    (H) = hammerhead



    (s s s s s s) (s s s s s s) (s s s s s s)
    ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
    ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff

    (H) (H)


    If you take some drons with the stealthsuit you get a extra big unit with nigth rule! You may like some Broadside suit to kill monolith's! BUT the stealthsuit have to blok all you units or else the neron can fire on you other troops with out Ld test!

    I feel like when fighting Necros we really need crisis suits more than fire warriors to blast through their high toughness and good armor saves, S5, AP5 just doesn't cut it against Necrons, especially with the WBB removing a huge number of the kills you manage to score against them, but that's just my opinion.

    My list was a balanced list, the necron list is designed to kill tau. It's how I imagine all my games. suf, as I said in the pm, the broadsides must actually be together. as in, next to each other.
