I always love readin your battle reports, I see your name next to the "Tyranids vs xxxxx" and get very excited. The pictures, little drawn on lines and commentary is the best I have seen.
Just wondering though, if that was capture and control, how could you have won without any scoring units?

I wasn't aiming at all for the objectives, I played the game with the intention of annihilating the Tau in order to win.
Whenever i make an army list I take my time think of a 'theme' in this case mass of Rippers. And then I think bout how to best implement that theme and what I would need to win. And super carnifexes came to mind.

I was fully aware that I can't win by gaining objectives so as you saw I forced my way through, holding back a bit on the left flank with the Tyrant and every unit in there (those hammerheads are murder on rippers!) until the carnifexes could get far enough in his face that he can't ignore them, meanwhile I aimed at handicapping at least 1 of the hammerheads with the venom cannon.

A huge part of the reason I won was good luck. I seized the initiative and got a lucky break on that 1 ripper swarm sweeping that unit of stealth suits.

And also go to ground saved me as I took a 2+ cover save against a lot of fire from the Tau's concentrated units on the right aimed at the ripper swarms. And this allowed the carnifexes to go along undisturbed. I have some more batreps on the way so rejoice my friends.
