Default I was playing with army builder and made a space marine army list

My question about this list for 2,000 pts I have 33 bikers, 1 land raider, and 1 vindicator
I have 6 assault bikes that are tank hunters with multi meltas
I have 6 bikes with plasma guns
I have 4 squads with 1 seargent and 1 attack bike
all seargents have powerweapons and master crafted
and my hq is on bike that has 4+inv and 2+ save

My question is you think tau can beat this. Espeaclly if they get first turn and turbo boost accross the table.

it would be a very bloody game suited for ion cannons but they could do it with 2000 pts quite easily with static and some ion heads

lol easy

You make tons of skimmers, deploy in a defensive circle, and loads of crisis behind. Now, what do you do? Destroy the skimmers? That'll make an impassible wall, the crisis can jump up on the skimmers firing at you, but you can't drive your bikes through the skimmer, they're still wrecks, and thus impassable for bikes. You don't destroy them? Fine, you can't move beneath them. Either way, you're dead.

Huge static massed FW's might do it. Stealth suits...

Oh well,

I was thinking of doing a biker marine army. But I guess not now. I wanted to design one that is well rounded and also anti tau.

The trouble with bike armies against Tau is that in a given turn they will either be durable or have good firepower, but not both. You might be able to survive for a while by turbo-boosting, but as soon as you slow down to fire, your small model count will really start to hurt. A more balanced army would serve you better. I am going to move this over to the Space Marines forum, as they might be better informed on this particular subject.

I was thinking that with 30+ bikes If I turbo boost I may loose about 10 bikes due to shooting against Tau. But with the 20 I have less plus tanks. I can fire back. Plus I'll be in assault range probablly with his whole army. So I'll shread them apart with my cc assaults next turn.

with 2000 points and knowing I'm facing your kind of army I would fill in 7 tanks. That's either a wall or a shield, which one you prefer ?? Changes nothing anyway as both will make your assault move Kaboum!! and my fire warriors + stealths bang!bang! your bikes, turbo-boost or not. Also, you count in 2 tanks, I count in 3 railheads ... You ain't going to kill my tanks except with luck, in which case you would have moved 12 and so won't be locked in CC and left without invulnerable saves ... maybe I'd consider Skyrays here >
