Soul grinder blocks pavane LoS. Flamer template covers two devilfish, glances both and scores a 5+6 on glancing. Decoys reroll to 5. Two dead devilfish.
Big daemonette unit slaughters pathfinders, small one wounds Shas'o, who survives thanks to stimulants and iridium.
Big daemonettes consolidate into it, but it jumps out of combat with VRT.
Casualties: 2 Devilfish, 4 pathfinders, wound to Shas'o

Tau Turn 6

Devilfish moves to get clear shot on flamer, Shas'o stays still.
Flamer killed, one member of small daemonette killed, making squad non-scoring.
Casualties: Flamer, Daemonette.

Daemons win, with a full strength squad on table worth 150 points, to no scoring units.

Things learned: Daemons will slaughter any non-skimmer parts of a tau army.
Don't count on a Soul Grinder instagibbing its enemy.
Tzeentch saves are really nice.
Slaanesh units die quickly.
Always use at least one icon per half of army.

Nice Battle Report. +1 Karma - Anton.

I find it amusing that O'Shovah did more damage in close combat than most of his army combined. Good report.
When you wish upon a star, your wish may come true. Unless that star is a meteorite hurtling towards the earth. In that case you're just screwed; unless you wished for death by meteorite.
