Default Space Marines with Imperial Vs Tau and Eldar

Ok me and my brothers all play Warhammer 40k. One has Imperial Guard 1 has Tau, and finally 1 has eldar and I have Space Marines. We try to play battles where all four of us can play. The it goes is the Imperial vs the Tau and the Eldar and i have trouble with taking killing them before they demolith my forces. Wouldn't mind a little info on how to beat them.

Can you give us an idea of what you/they use? What points do you play?

We normally play 1000 pts for the teams.

go heavy on heavy bolters, especially against tau. bring along rhinos, you need to get to them fast. you can beat guard and tau in CC and eldar if your force is assault oriented(or his isn't) so rhinos crusaders and drop pods will do you good. also try and get some scouts to infiltrate and get into combat. buy you real marines time to get stuck in.

what do the tau and eldar players use?

Personally I'd go for an assault oriented space marine army supported by a troop heavy shooty guard army. Most likely your marines will be picked apart, but the tau and eldar will be sustaining constant fire and your remaining marines will be able to hit them hard.

Normally the eldar are using snipers and a Avatar, some bikes. The Tau player however uses his transport with broadside cannon, seeker missels, and alot o troops.

I really cant give a good description of the Tau army becasue he is always changing the line up, and getting new models.

Rush them with as many high-priority targets as possible. Tau hate dividing their fire and Elder hate being surrounded.
