Welcome to Librarium Online!
My Tau just got beat badly in a tournament, mostly due to a lack of antitank weapons. (I had two Broadsides and one Railhead in a Farsight list; no seekers.) I would like to use the Fusion Blaster to even the odds but I can't figure out how to get close enough to a vehicle to use them effectively, barring a very dangerous deepstrike. How do you guys use the FB against vehicles?
(I have tried EMPs; they work well against any vehicle that is not a transport, not equipped with a heavy bolter and not a skimmer, which is darn near all of them.)

I don't care for EMPs, they're just too expensive. It isn't hard to get a suit in range of fusion while simply jumping behind terrain. A deepstrike is very dangerous, but many players often leave their rear armor undefended to keep troops on the front likes. You could infiltrate a stealth team, as they could start within 13" or 19" of the armor with a fusion gun, I believe that would be the best idea.Originally Posted by Intrepid
If you want speed, use piranhas as they can take fusion guns. If you want fusion on a crisis suit, you're going to need to jump behind terrain or deep strike, that is all you can do. If you want high speed go piranha, and if you want maneuverability and power go with stealths.
Ask yourself why in the world would you trust a win loss record? Playing them yourself is the only way to tell.
The true joy in the game is playing down to the last model, no matter the odds.
You could take a 3 man crisis elite team with linked FB and shield. There is this, arg, wargear thing that makes deep strike cool, and the devil fish of Pathfinders improves deepstike as well, but pathfinders are cool. I mostly use Piranha's with t. array and FB for anty tank.
If you are facing many light vehicles you could take a small pathfinder squad with 3 railrifles/target lock and you'd be able to take out several enemy vehivles at once (potentially). It has happened to me, my friend used it and took out 2 rhinos and a land speeder in 1 turn...
