Default Re: Battle report - Tau v Space Marines

Ranzin I got amazingly lucky on those reserve rolls! The plan was for my Commander to spend a couple of turns positional relaying and Jump/Run/Jump away from trouble. I really did not expect Shrike! (He is definitely one to watch out for if you play Tau, he gives the unit he joins infiltrate and fleet! Join him to an Assault Marine Squad and there is nothing that unit cant hit in the 1st turn! Big ouch for Tau! As my poor commander found out! So yes Those Reserve rolls really did save my ass (as did the XV8 Flamer squad who took down 8 of the assault squad when they came in if that unit had stayed loose and mobile I could have been in even more trouble).

Kroot you do have to love them! They are always underestimated, and denigrated to the pure roll of Meat shield, or cheap bolter equivalent unit. But played right they are probably one of the best units in the Tau Army!

Cammerz I would definitely go with the two units, it makes them more versatile and able to react to different targets, but if you have the models I would up it to at least 10 hounds per unit.

The Sisters of Battle report will follow tomorrow although this was a far less glorious chapter in Tau History! (It all went a bit pear shaped :P)
