Welcome to Librarium Online!
It's my first tournie in Jan. A doubles tournie. For those of u who dont know this is me (Tau) and my mate (Space Wolves) teaming up with 400 points each (combat patrol). Obviously we expect to face mostly space marines, or at least power armour. But we arent sure what to bring. I have to have a squad of firewarriors, and at the mo I've got 18 of these in 3 squads of 6, an XV8 with PR, MP and MT, and 5 Stealth suits. He's got 6 Grey Hunters (compulsory), A wolf guard battle leader (compulsory) ,and 8 Blood Claws in a rhino. We might replace my stealth suits with two more XV8s and his BC with BC bikers. Whats do you lot think, what do we need to look out for, what do we take, and how do we play. Tell me evrything!!! :w00t:
Sounds good so far. You are very right about marines. You should be prepared to bring down light troops and bust vehicles. His job should be to clean up remnants in CC after your shooting, and using power weapons to get power-armour guys.
Hope that helps! And good luck!

Hmm. January you say.
Well, for now I'd say get a couple Crisis Suits with Twin-Linked Plasma Guns. This will take out that pesky 3+ Save. I don't know the specific rules of Combat Patrol, so I don't know if anything isn't playable in that game. If you're allowed Heavy Support, grab a Hammerhead with an Ion Cannon. It will do damage to Marines as well, and can drop his HQ in one turn or so.
A good base of Fire Warriors should provide enough shooting to dwindle the Marines numbers so your friends Wolves can assault them with less trouble.:yes:

No, no vehicals with total armour 34 or more. Thnx anyway thoughOriginally Posted by The Doctor
DEFINITELY an Ion Cannon. Personally, I'd spend as many points on big shooty guns as you can afford, as the Space Wolves are more than competent in preventing you from ever needing to see CC.

By "Other Stuff" I'm going to assume you mean "Assloads of Stealths".Originally Posted by onlainari
