Default Campaign in Fi'rios - dang its hard!

Check the US GW website. And read up.

This is really challenging! And it is somewhat not fair for the Tau player. I mean, 2000 pts orks against 1k pts of Tau in a single match?!*

Id actually think the difficulty comes from the fact that if the Tau lose even once, they lose the campaign, while Orks have to lose minimum three times (unless the ork player is stupid.)

But the idea is nice. Would maybe work better, if Tau had equal amount of counters as orks in the beginning, but the orks would be twice the points/counter. This would allow Tau player to overpower orks by careful movement of counters, while Ork player would one on one be stronger.

Or if its non speed freaks and open field terrain. :

That's why it is so unfair to the tau dudes. It's like the orks have outnumber us gazillion to one.

Even if we can move faster than the orks, but they are everywhere and thus the maneuverbility is neutralized.

Well, there is the manta drop, and since the goal is not to kill all orks but destroy all orks "cities" one can use that to advantage.

So,you think that as orks out number Tau about 4 billion to one in actual 40k that 3,000points is harsh?

I mean,it is a scenario(s) designed to convey the hopeless numbers encountered during the campaign.
I you are going to complain about it the just don't play the campaign.

I'm just saying that it is hard, not impossible. But it really make the tau player think.
