Default Re: 500 pts Tau vs. 500 pts Chaos. Who wins?

My advice would be to lose some FW and get yourself plasma. Besides, if you have some nice terrain, upgrading stealths' BS for points saved on Fire Warriors could do the trick, since with a good set-up and some cover, even infiltrating Marines would never catch your stealths.

I've learned one thing from my games against Alpha Legion: static Fire Warriors are only good for absorbing charges, dying quickly and letting you mop up afterwards (well... they've kinda redeemed themselves by putting last wound on my opponent's Lord and holding the loot counter last time, but still).

Don't drop your 'el, drop some FW, get another Crisis and deploy smart (infiltrate). My 3 cents.

EDIT: And your opponent had better not drop his Lord too, if he knows what's good for him... A tooled-up infiltrating Speed Lord can slaughter your entire ARMY single-handedly with his 19-24" charge range and some good rolling on combat (finishing your squads in your turn, getting freedom of movement in his and murdering your "welcoming comitee"... Happened to me once, and a potential Victorious Slaughter became a mere Draw. Not pretty .
