hmm right

Crisis suit will suffer to pathfinders. S8 AP3 missles isnt very nice

PF and FW and GD will suffer to rail blasts form a hammer head

BS will suffer form deep striking fusion blasters

fire warriors will get it from a kroot team hiding out in a wood depending on the board

This is actually kind of interesting. Being the only tau player in my group and not having enough models to rightly field two armies, I've never fought against the Tau as the Tau. But I have wondered if anyone else has. Specifically mech Tau vs static Tau battles. How did it go?

I would take them on as i would take on any other army. they dont deserve special treatment, or vastly complicated tactics.

the right gun, at the right target. sorted.

I hate playing against other Tau. Depending on list construction, things can get very ugly very quickly.

I think the most important units are the broadsides/hammerheads. The battle really boils down to who can take out the enemy's AT weapons first. Once the enemy broadsides or hammerheads are dead, your hammerheads can roam relatively freely, sumbunitioning and instakilling suits. Not pretty.

Other than that, static, shooty units get picked apart by suits and submunitions, so they usually work best just hiding behind cover and holding objectives. Deepstriking is always an interesting option for crisis suits...can really assist in getting an extra glance or two on the enemy vehicles, or shooting up broadsides.

If you have time to prepare for it, bring as many TL Missilepods as you can.

Marc, people here appreciate good grammar and for others to use the search function. It maybe irritating to be told continuosly at times but it is necessary as having the same topic made every week can irritate other member's, after all it's not strenuous to use the Search function. Grammar is also necessary as this is an international forum (we have members from all corners of the globe) so it's harder for those who's first language isn't english to understand if it isn't typed well enough.

Also you get one of those pictures under your name if you click on the profile button in the top left and then select forum profile information and it's all there, as is the signature options (text underneath your post).
