I posted here and now after playing a little, i realize i need some more tips from experts like you.
I am 0/7....
My army is a Shas'o Fireknife, 4 stealth suits, 12 and 12 firewarriors with devil fish, and 1 hammerhead.
My main opponent is a nid user who loves genestealers, LOVES. 2 full broods, and a broodlord and brood. Fully decked carnifex, 2 zonathropes, and 2 biovores.
My friends are very loose on the rules which annoys me to no ends, aka, no terrain AT ALL.
I'm thinking of going for more crises suits for heavier firepower, because more shots doesnt mean jack.
Yeah, there's no way that's 750 points. The Genesteelers, and the Broodlord+brood alona are 750 points maybe. And a geeked out carnifex is like ~250 points. Definatly check there list, check the codex, and calculate yourself.
Tau + Nids - Terain = big dead pile of bugs

There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)
Yet hes losing!Originally Posted by Soviet_Tau_Commander
I say play with terrain, demand it even. Or say you've redone your list with 800-850 worth of modelsw, after let him know and also let him know that next timeyou'll be bringing some terrain.
Course, first find out if his list is legit!
(The above plan is not to be used unless you and your gaming buddy are good friends! or hes got a good sense of humor!)
Your friend must be cheating.
You have just got 750 points and your friend by just having a look at his army he must have about 1250 points at least or even more.
And what about more shots don't mean jack? Fire Warriors kill Gaunts instantly and Hammerheads Railgun Sub kills genestealers and some of the other critters instantly also.
Get into a fair match and watch those Nids fall.
Well actually its 1000, I think...But i'm iffy on his points too, seems waaay too much. He did give his 2000 pointer to me though, which is scaring the hell outta me, i'll post it soon.
Oh and they refuse to play terrain, no idea why :sleep:
ok, this is what he said is his 2k
2 broods of 12 stealers w/toxin sacs
2 broods of 7 steaers w/Talons and Carapace
2 Broodlords w/ Acid maw,Sace and Carapace
3 Zoans w/ Warp blast and synapse
3 Biovores w/ bio-acid
I think he's full of crap to be honest, but he states he's telling the truth, i'm not sure if I can believe him.
He most likley plays no terrain because he can use fleet of claw to run his Nids in a straight line and theres nothing to stop him.
And that army list is 2000 points or more and it looks scary.
I had a feeling about this, which is why I jumped on the points limit straight away. It is your list that's letting you down. Drop all those unnecessary upgrades, stick to the bare bones. You could fit in another railhead and a unit of kroot for 250pts (kroot are useful for pushing back the broodlord).Originally Posted by Thorn14
I dont believe i have unecessary upgrades, I might drop my Devil Fish as they blow up WAAAAY too easy and kill my FW in nothing flat. But that ruins their mobility, but seeing how i play on planet bowling ball, whats the point.
