Default Re: How to beat space marines with tau?

Hey dude,

Marines will be a little tricky for you, since your army is rather static, and you've got only 1 HH a 1 Crisis suit. You won't really be able to run, and you'll need to be careful with your few big guns.

Because you've only got 1 HH and 1 Crisis (HQ I guess), you prob won't have the luxury of and Ion cannon or mass Plasma. Keep your HH with the Railgun and just spam that thing at incoming Marines. As for your Crisis suit, I'd actually suggest you go with a Fireknife... just 'cos he'll be your Commander (thus high BS stat) and 'cos he's just 1 guy... don't risk him up close - have him whittle down attacking marines from 18-24'' with the stealth suits helping.

Play defensively if you can, with what you have, it'd be better if they came for you instead of the other way. If you have to attack, see if you can soften up a spot with sniping before going in with your tanks in front. Whatever you do, stay close to your Kroot and FWs and make sure they can support with shooting.

Also, in the future, you should try to expand your army with the various units everyone else has already suggested. Yes, and more Crisis/Stealth suits too.
