Default Re: Advise please for 1st timer against SM Iron Hands

Syndosis:

One little note, the only weapon you will need against a dreadnought/scout army is the mighty Missile Pod. Your 3 Crisis suits will single handedly drop those dreadnoughts with ease and the scouts as well. Everything else in your army can help out or do something else, but really, it can all come down to those twin-linked missile pods if you can take them.

A single railhead will help too, but if a single lascannon hits that Hammerhead, you might be stunned or lose the vehicle. The suits will keep ticking even if they're killed one by one. If you have Kroot, use them, they're great at countering small scout squads. And if you have pathfinders, they're great for breaking scouts cover saves coupled with your submunition blast.

As someone stated above, a dreadnought/scout army would be a blessing for most Tau players. It could have been a boo-librarian, whirlwind, 6xLasPlas cheese-marine party
