Default Help making a anti Tau list!

KLAW THOSE BLUE COWARDS 0

I greet you fellow gamers.
Usually me and my freinds don't play with armies prepared to meet a specific race :sadnshocked:.. But this time me and my freind have chosen to built an army with the one purpose of destroying the our races >. He will prepare a list of Tau to meet my orks and I the other way around!

The point number is 1750!

for me a speed freak kinda army seems most logical, so this is what i have come up with so far!:
Bikes: I have around 10 of those bastards! Also have a Wazdakka!?!?!?!
Lootas: I have 15!
Trucks: I have 3!
Kommandos: Only have 4 + Snikrot!?!?!?!
Boyz: Got ´em! Got many!
Deffkoptas: got 3-5!
Big Mek: 1 with SaG, 1 with KFF.

I also have more, 2 looted tanks, 5 flash gitz, 8 nobz, 1 buggy, bikerwarboss, 3 meganobz, 2 killa kanz, 15 ard boyz, warboss with klaw! Weirdboy, Old Zogwort and a lot more..

What should I do!? Unit combination? Tatics?
He won the last to games, I still lead, but its time for a comeback, help me win!

Thanks, LOVE Sunburst 8)

For tau, you need 2 things.

1) Speed;
2) Get upclose and personal.

So put some boyz in those trukk and use those bikers. Move in fact and lock them in CC.

Don't try to outshoot them because they will win.

Soo Lootas and Looted Wagons with Boomguns are useless? I mean they might remove some heat from the boyz?
What about Shootas? Or SaG? or Flash Gitz?

Should the Deffkoptas have Buzzsaw?

By the way he loves crisis suits so I proberly gonna have to hun those alot

Loota, wagon, and shoota (and other shooty ork) can help cover you trukk/assaulting unit get into range and getting Medieval on tau D'yi.

but personally I think mobility and CC would be your friend...especially against suits.

Thanks

But what about:
- Deffkoptas with Buzsaw?
- Footslogging boys (With shoota)?
- Meks with KFF?
- Mega amour?

10 nobz with warboss with eavy armour and cybork and painboy. I use this against my Tau mate all the time because he just cant take them down. That is partly because i use koptas and tankbustas to take out his hammerheads with sheer numbers of rokkits early, and i have 2 trukks of boyz.

From my own experience, i would do something similar to this.

Warboss + 10 nobz (painboy, armour, cybork, other accessories and weapons)
2 boyz in trukks w/nob
2 kopta squads of 3 with one buzzsaw in each
2 Looted wagons - 1 with 2 rokkits and for holding a loota squad of 12, the other with boomgun and ard case
Squad of 30 walking boyz - the sheer amount of other things will keep these guys alive.
Tankbustas - at least 8

If you have lots of bikes - make em nob bikers w/painboy and add wazdakka (or use him as a warboss if short on points)

:funny: Hehe. Fair enough.

But what would you do if you were fighting orks and you knew your enemy as well are preparing to counter your tatic.. That way you would now He would use a lot of speed, how would you counter that? and how can I prepare against that counter

English is not my mother language hope my message is clear

Hmm, in this situation, I would prepare for the Ork player to use a different/tooled list, but to still use units they were comfortable with.

That's what I would prepare for. Knowing the weaknesses of Tau, I'd prepare to at least blunt a fast moving strategy at the minimum if you tried a rush.

Maybe you could tell us what we would normally see in both players lists?

[hr]
I hate to say it, but making sure the mission an objective based one will be harder on the Tau player as well. I'd leave that part up to the dice though tbh.

Against ork a Tau player would probably go with:

-Fire warrior in warfish (devilfish with SMS) for sheer firepower.
-XV-8 with airfragmentation (pieplate), Ionblaster (3 or 6 attack), burst cannon (3 attack), missile pod (2 attack good VS vehicule/tank)
-Hammerheads with railgun for the pieplate.
-Pathfinder (markelright)
-Gun drone for harasment.
