4. Friendly units in the Cadian detachment don't take Morale tests due to suffering 25% casualties from shooting if within 12" of Warlord.
5. Commissar Lord has Voice of Command (can give IG orders).
6. Warlord must always issue and accept challenges. Friendly characters in this detachment re-roll failed To Hit and To Wound rolls in a challenge.

I actually don't think the Tau list is optimized enough to take advantage of the overall weaknesses of the AM list. There's tons of cover, but not a lot of Markerlights for the Tau. The Crisis Suits can jump easily, but there's enough Wyverns to force tons of saves (in which a 3+ quickly loses value).
Plus the mission isn't entirely favoring this particular Tau list. Maybe if they used Farsight shenanigans and had tons of Crisis troops...

I'm going to say TASK FORCE RELIQUIAE has this, but not by much.

I actually agree with Slayerfan-123 and his evaluation. If the Tau had more markerlights to take away more cover or if it was a kill point mission, it may be a different story. My vote is for List 1 -Imperial Guard/Tempestus Scions by a nose.

Agreeing with what was said before, the terrain will hand this to the GUARD. The Tau list is decent, but lacks all of the shenanigans that I usually relate to Tau, and those shenanigans are what would be needed to win this match. If the Tau list had some more markerlights, some Overrides, etc, they would walk around this board. Unfortunately for them, they don't, so my vote stands.

GUARD. They have both the firepower and meatshields to win this. The table has a lot of cover for advancing blobs, too.

Can't really add more than what's already been said. GUARD should, on this table, get the win
