Default Re: UCTT (Unconventional Tau Tactics)

Well thank you!

UcTT Army Components
Rear Gurad ->
This should be 1/4 to 1/3 of your force. They are at the back of your deplyment zone, and hold it. they are also Rapid reponse teams, so if something bad happens, move to give aid.
Rear Guard units:
Sniper Drones
Sky Ray
Hammerhead - Railhead

Objective Claimers ->
These are the fast boys. They zip up and claim Objectives, and ward off any attack on objectives.
Claimer Units:
Piranhas
Vespids

Shredders ->
Shredders are unit that butcher anything with a 5+ save.
Shredder units:
Fire Warrior
Kroot
Piranha
Devilfish
Gundrones
Stealth Suits

Bashers ->
Bashers are anything that butchers units with 3+ saves.
Basher units are:
Sniper Drones
Hammerheads - Ion head
Plasma Weilding Crisis Suits
Vespids (dont expect them to live to see your next turn though)
Seeker Missile
en-mass Shredders

Squashers ->
Squashers are the bad boys with the power to crush 2+ saves. We have few.
Squasher Units:
Plasma Crisis
Fusion Crisis
Hammerhead - Railhead (not too cost effective)

UcTT Army constrution.
There are 3 types of UcTT
Defensive -> (Static Hybrid) -> 1/3 Rear Guard, 1/4 Shredders, 1/5 Bashers, 1/5 Squashers
Offensive -> (Mech Hybrid) -> 1/4 Claimers, 1/2 Mounted Shreaders, 1/8 Squashers, 1/8 Bashers
Balanced -> (Hybrid Hybrid) -> 1/4 Rear Guard, 1/4 Shreaders, 1/4 Claimers, 1/8 Bashers, 1/8, Squashers

Those guide line have brought me to Victory many times.

notes on musical warfare.
The music I use to annoy my opponents while playing is Nirvana Lithium, Smells Like Teen Spirt, and Come as you are.

PS every time I said tank shock with piranhas I mean with 1, you cannot tank shock with a unit can you?
