Yeah, those stats make it look like a sweet game.

How big was his farsight's squad?

Because I have played against one person that used a full bodyguard and everything in it had 2 gun drones. When they came in the amount of firepower it could lay down was incredible. Especially as a lot of them had missile pods and plasma rifles, they also packed plenty of punch. However the best thing that ever happened when I played him was it deepstriking and scattering onto one of my boyz squads. Everything was wiped from the board.

Tau fortunately are only good at shooting, their best melee fighter, Commander Farsight is rarely fielded by Tau player anyways...and most people doesn't really like to field him because he limits the choice in the codex, and he's a bit too expensive for what he does. And Kroots usually get smacked around by our boyz.

Snikrot does wonders againts Tau, IG and races who like to sit back near table edges and shoot. Your cybork armoured nobz + painboy also makes any Tau player have nightmares...mount them on bikes and it'll probably spell the end of them. :P

From what I see from your friends, hes gonna try to deep strike you with his Crisis suits. If he upgrade some crisis suit with burst cannon or missile pod hes gonna wreck havoc on your troop.

IMO try to save a few power klaws near ur end to deal with them asap.

Replying in old threads is frowned upon and this post is borderline spam. Also if you read the thread the battle has passed and he won.

Ard boyz are useful for their higher armor save, tau infantry weapons will punch through 6+ but not that 4+ save. If anyone is walking it should be them. Load 10 Nobz and a warboss in a trukk and run it as fast as possible to start killing stuff. Other than that use bikes and other fast units to try to stay mobile as targets. All this is still to distract from large groups of boyz in trukks or slogging towards them. Get just in range to call on a well timed Waagh. This has helped me chop up space marines who are both shooty and choppy. lol

PS the kans will probably die before being useful. especially if he has railguns
