Default Anti-Tau Sentiment

Lately i've been getting allot of grief from people making fun of tau. I guess we are kind of easy targets with our tiny empire and "wimpy" tactics, but this still peeves me.

Anybody else have stories about people making fun of tau (preferably stories where the culprit was purged by turn two :P)?

Tau do seem to be used as the punching bag of 40K forums. Ah well, it just makes Tau player's victories all the sweeter. After all, you have to respect an underdog.

I like it. It increases the embarrassment and heart-breaking effects of GW's cover boy SMurfs being crushed by the "wimpy little aliens".

The Tau get victories now?... honestly i can see why they do though. At my club Tau forces have only ever won 3 battles (touramnet battles that is). Where as all other armies excluding dark eldar as no one plays them have scored at least 9 or 10.

This is because Tau are terrible if used like, say, Dark Angels. Or Imperial Guard.

Its really funny because me and my friend spent ages doing Tau vs Salamanders comics (some of which were a bit farfetched. eg, Kroot killing Terminators, Tau armies getting destroyed by a Guardsman, etc) before we actually got to battle. The score is three nill to the Tau and he still thinks they suck. (Three legitamate battles that is, the first one I accidently thought submunitions were AP1. Oops.)

We have built up respect for each others armies though. (Though a few days ago he did a comic where one Guardsman destroyed the whole Tau Empire. Hmm. ?? :)

well, since I've never played Tau before, I wouldn't know, but Faolin, perhaps you should post a couple of those comics, they sound like real fun!

We are not weak. We calculate and plan. We do what we do for the greater good.
That is why we have technology. So many armies bring knives to gunfights.
What is more dangerous than a sniper who moves?
Our style is different. We move, we shoot.
I say we are not weak. And in that fact, gentle tau, we have victory!!!

You don't really want to see them. Imagine a stick figure Crisis Battlesuit! (I am really really bad at drawing)
