Default Mech guard

Simple question, with what i think may be a complicated answer. is mech guard fair? I myself have a large mechanised guard army and it almost never losses in annihilation games. in seize ground and capture and controll i have to be carfull to support my men well as i only have 30 or so.
one of my opponents in particular calls cheese. he is a tau player, and a good one at that but he tries to play the honorable game and misses some prime opportunity's yet he calls my army unfair. basically is he justified in what he says or does he just need to amend his tactics?

Alright here goes.

1) Mech army -regardless of race is fair. By itself it's fairly balances becasue what you gain in mobility you lose in number of units able to shot.

2) Your Tau opponent who call cheeze is kind of an idiot considering that in 5th editon Mech or Hybrid tau is the way to go.

3) Furthermore to play the honorable game and to purposely miss prime opportunity is just plain stupid. I'm not saying to tailorbuilt a list or to play cutthroat, but if you have an opportunity or if your opponent makes a mistake and you can use it to your advantage do so and your opponent will learn from his mistake.

In conclusion, he needs to adjust his tactic.
