Whats the Best Strategy For Tau & World Eaters? I need some help because most of my "meta" uses tau and one person uses World Eatsers, i would gladly appeciate any help.
Well it would be very helpful to know your army list and what kind of list your opponents use. That is, I have very differnt advice for dealing with a mech tau player than a static one. World eaters though should be very easy to deal with regaurdless of what he uses.Originally Posted by Tdogloftin
- Use his rules against him by puting tarpit units like gaunts or rippers and force an assult on those units, than mop up with your heavy hitters.
- Genestealers will make his units cry. I don't need to say more because they will destroy a berserker sqaud like it was nothing.
- Shooty fexes can play great havoc with his forces. Dakka fexes (2 TL-Devourers, Enhanced Senses) in particular shred marines easily and are awsome if he uses bikers. Gunfexes are great of he uses rhinos or predators.
- In short you are 2 CC armies and assuming you have a few rending units, you will win. His lack of numbers make his fearless staus a determent and the fact that his units cost so much should mean plenty of victory points for the pickins. My freind refeuses to play his world eaters aginst me and my nid freinfd since he is so overmatched.

If someone helps you, or you just like what they say, rep them
Well, The tau player is a mech mostly a mech player and the WE player, Well, heres is his list,

Here is mine
(Scroll to bottom of page to find my finished list which still needs help)
hmmm ok i had a looky at the We list and yours and i noticed a few things you could do to really mess up his army, It seems like hes making his lord Deamonic stature and thats a reallly big mistake on his part ie its a MC that can be targetted by Warpblasts and even tho hes toughness 6, it only counts as baseline toughness 5 meaning, instant death from any warpblast, so i would recommend taking either some zoanies or a tyrant, because of 2 things,
1/ its a powerd up choas lord, and when you kill it on first turn of shooting, it will demoralise the hell out of your oppenent,
2/ its 196 pts of his army
3/ you dont want to face that thing in CC, unless its a large brood of stealers
that was my tip for WE army
As for tau, basically lose the stealers, there overkill on tau, get more hormies
Army of the heavens, my army waits in hell
To battle on the earth, for all the souls who fell
For against the WE, Tyrants, Broodlords, Genestealers and Raveners with RC will easily eat right through his sqaudand most of his HQ's as well.
Zoanthropes and gunfex's will also play havoc against the small amount of vehicles he uses and they can easily shoot at the DP.
I have faced World eaters. They are are a ragged mob but very dangerous.
The key to thier defeat is to be steady. Use Zoanthropes to lay down a steam of fire into their units to wear them down. Add in any other firepower that is useful.
Remember if affected by blood rage Worldeaters must assault the nearest target even Spore mines must be attacked. This can make spore cysts on a Carnifex very useful in holding them off until you decide it's time to destroy them.
A Bloodthirster must also charge the nearest enemy and because it's summoned and also costs alot of points it can't afford to waste time charging Spore mines which just explode in it's face.
They attack in a random way because of blood rage so as you maul them the survivors will be very vunerable to counter attacks.
The idea is to damage each unit enough so it isn't much of a threat on its own.
A strong group of Genestealers Hive tyrants and Carnifexes will be able to demolish each unit one after the other.
Ooh, playing dirty, eh? Showing other people my list? Thanks Trevor.
you already showed them your list though...thanks for saying my name online Zach...
i cant say anything about chaos but in order to beat the tau hord up a bit and then just get to them. once your in CC range the Tau are going to have problems
