Default How do you kill Space Wolves?

I can't win exept (in a 2000 pt army) when I get a load of fire warriors, and at least 3 broadsides.And then i've only won once (against those cheesy people!)

welcome to the forum

anyways what does he do (transports or mega footsloggers) for a balance id put in 1 railhead w/sms and kami-krooties to weaken them so your fire warriors can just go boom boom and make them take 10 armour save resulting in about 3 failures and you keep whittling them down

Yes welcome to the forums

It would be helpful if you could give us a rough list of what you're working with (your list) and if possible, what your opponent is using. Personally I've never fought Wolves but they are another SM chapter. So power armour, power weapons and some variation of bolter. From what I've seen they're quite CC oriented correct? Another thing that would be useful are your tactics as well as what you've seen of his.

We look forward to helping you!

Like most strategies Tau, its largely about target priority. If you expect him to take most of his troops in transports, give all your broadsides target locks so they can each fire at something seperate. Remember that any penetrating hit on a transport automatically ejects the squad inside it so it can slow an transport army down significantly.

Personally, I dont like to take kroot against space marine types unless kroot hounds are involved.

Well, he has one rhino, 3 bikes, venerable dreadnought, and a bunch of grey hunters and blood claws fully tricked out! My army list is completly flexible (i have a phantom army), so I can use anything ;D ;D

Ah, good, no space wolf scouts. those things can really ruin your day. :P

Sound's like he's very assaulty and has some fast things to get in quick. If you haven't already, might I refer you to the MECH TAU BIBLE;

http://www-personal.engin.umich.edu/~leebj/

It contains within it's holy pages the types of strategies you need to keep mobile yet still maintain good firepower. The object of your match should be;

1; stay out of his reach. Bring vehicles and crisis suits, perhaps even some kroot to stop whatever makes it (or at least slow them down....)

2; negate his firepower using LOS; whether it's the good ol JsJ with crisis suit jumps where you start and end the phase behind cover or as I like to call it "tank sniping" where you use the railgun's immense range on a vehicle to your advantage, along with cover, to ensure that whatever you're shooting at, it doesn't get to fire unless it's been fired at first.

3; concentrate your attacks; don't stop shooting something until it's completely dead. And shoot the fastest things first; namely the bikes and rhino.

With these in mind and fresh ideas from mech tau, you should be able to surprise your opponent with some tau well fitted to avoiding his assault and still giving him plenty to worry about in firepower.

How do you usually go when fighting him? What gives you the most trouble to kill?

For a 2000 point army both your lists seem abit small. A few FW's and 3 Broadsides for 2000 points? Something dosen't add up there.

Hmmmm...... Have you got any idea why you keep losing? Those counters seem to be pretty effective. The trickiest thing for me to kill in that list would be the Dreadnought. Re - rolls on the damage dice is nasty. At least a Dread isn't a skimmer. Skimmers with that rule can be nasty.
