Well... this is my army but i have a bit of trouble beating stupid tau
well i win like 50percent but i know tau are just not good enough to even beat Necrons
so can u guys give me tips ? like i'll list my units i got and like.. can u form a good
army? like maybe 1000pt army or.. 1500pt? that'll be really good
wel.. the thing is.. my friend has 8battlesuits... he bought 2 battle forces and 2more
battle suits and they are like 1000pts for all of them soo yeh. thanks!
well i 've got
-Necron Lord on destroyer body
-10 flayed ones
-4destroyers (one comming its way)
-Thinking of buying maybe 1 Tomb Spyder >< ???
I think i've got a decent army ... but tau's shooting is just pretty damn good
and yeh.. makes me phase out sometimes!
AH!!! how do you lose to TAU!!! They have almost nothing that can negate your armour save. Their regular troops are next to useless against you, and their crisis suits are too valuable to get close and use their fusion blasters. Their missle pods still allow WBB. Only the railguns are a threat, and he can only have a few at maximum. What are your tactics? I just don't understand. Maybe you just aren't taking enough regular troops? I really don't know what to tell you, I beat Tau 90some percent of the time, usually without much effort.
Just march at them with some regular troops, and use your destroyers, which have a longer ranged gun than most of their troops, to take out the special units. It isn't supposed to be a problem.
Sorry, I don't mean to sound condescending. You've got most of the essentials. Just don't take the monolith or the C'tan. They soak up too many points that should be devoted to WBB.
Rainmaker- your list does seem solid and you have everything you need, maybe if you post what sort of tactics you use we might be able to help (never use the nightbringer against tau- they chew him up like nothing you've ever seen).
Scarabs Scarabs Scarabs. Use the chariot and this Tau player will have to be convinced to play you again. Scarabs are the worst thing Tau ever got put against them.
its the eight battle suits u know>< i dont really have a way to take them out~!!
EIGHT! i can take out the tau troops hammerhead and everything else with ease...
yeh.. HELP i am like versing him like in 3days!! and its gonna be like a 1700pt game
he is gonna have
8 battle suits with all plasma guns>< shield generators and rocket pods><
and like 20 troops
a lot of kroot.. like 40?
two battlesuits with that railgun
and a few stealth suits
any ideas to take this out? ( :cry:
but each of those crisis suits can down only 2 guys a turn... max!!! that is a lot of points that are soaked up in eight models. That's why you gotta take a lot of numbers. and if he takes fusion blasters, he doesn't have the rang that you do, so load up on regular destroyers. three shots, with two hitting (statistically) and needing 2s to wound, and you've got lots of dead crisis suits a turn. It sounds like they are the backbone of his army. They're easy to take out, trust me.
And windowlicker is right. Scarabs are your friend. Use them and their 12'' move, 6" assault to get to him quickly. They can tie the suits up, at least.
Thinking about scarabs:
Watch out for dbl strength guns, and submunitions on the hammerhead.
If he does, and you can't get to charge range in a turn, turboboost them into some cover- then you can pick the cover or invulnerable save to your advantage, then speed and charge out next turn. DON'T d/s them.
As for kroot, some flayed ones can pick them to peices with ease.
Hmm, this is a difficult one, he seems to have a balanced and rounded list. Pass my compliments on to him before you thrash him.
Destroyers are probably a good idea, but try to keep them out of LOS of the rail guns if you can.
*In My Mind*

The nightbringer.... You do not need that. Its a point sink, trust me. You need more models for what that costs. Wow i just totaled up your points spent and percentages. You need to invest more in warriors. For what the nightbringer costs, you can field a good bit more warriors. Also, you should field more immortals also. Give one of the lords viel of darkness and resurrection orb. then i would give the one with the destroyer body a resurrection orb. You should deepstirke with the lord that has the veil of darkness. Take the flayed ones with him. Add another destroyer and push with the squad of 5 destroyers and the lord. He has room to add a CCW, if you see fit. I would be more detailed, but this is just to give you an idea of where to go. Necrons are flexible enough to go a few routes and be effective, so it's up to you how you want to go. Usually its better to go with fast units and infiltrators. The warriors will mop up what's left, but are too slow to do much else. Just my .02 Hope it helps and happy gaming.
2 wraithlords at 1000 points was called cheese by my friends. My gf shot them both down in the first turn.
