Default [BatRep] Tau vs. Deathwing (1000 points)

Earlier today, I was in a tournament at my local hobby shop. One of the games I played was one against Deathwing.

Me (Tau):
HQ:
1 Shas'O w/ Helios
1 Shas'el w/ Fireknife

Elites:
5 Stealthsuits
1 Crisis Suit w/ Deathrain

Troops:
10 Fire Warriors w/ Devilfish w/ Decoy Launchers
10 Fire Warriors
10 Kroot

Heavy Support:
1 Hammerhead w/ Railgun, Burst Cannons, Multi-Tracker, Decoy Launchers, Target Lock
1 Broadside w/ Multi-Tracker

Him (Deathwing (aka Space Marines))
HQ:
1 Command Squad w/ 3 Termies w/ Storm Bolters, 2 Termies w/ Assault Cannons, 1 Captain Terminator (or something like that) with Storm Bolter, Power Weapon

Elite:
1 Dreadnought w/ Assault Cannon, DCC Weapons

Troops:
5 Terminators w/ 2 Assault Cannons, 3 Storm Bolters
5 Terminators w/ 2 Cyclone Missile Launchers, 3 Storm Bolters

Mission: Forgot name, but it has Infiltrators, Bombardment, and win by Victory Points.

Deployment:
My Fire Warriors were deployed in a line with each model 2'' away from each other. The Kroot were behind them spread out. The Crisis Suits were behind a hill to the right of the Kroot. The Stealthsuits were near the Fire Warriors spread out. My Broadside was near the Crisis Suits. The Hammerhead and Devilfish were behind the hill the crisis suits were on.

O= Shas'O

D = Dreadnought

All of his Terminators were deep-striking. The Dreadnought started on the field.

Bombardment: Nothing died in the bombardment.

Turn 1 (Tau):
Movement: The Hammerhead moves to the right 7''. The Devilfish moves up 7''.

Shooting: The Broadside hit and penetrated the Dreadnought, but it only stunned it. The Hammerhead hit and penetrated it, causing it to explode.

Army (Deathwing):
1 Command Squad w/ 3 Termies w/ Storm Bolters, 2 Termies w/ Assault Cannons, 1 Captain Terminator (or something like that) with Storm Bolter, Power Weapon

Troops:
5 Terminators w/ 2 Assault Cannons, 3 Storm Bolters
5 Terminators w/ 2 Cyclone Missile Launchers, 3 Storm Bolters

Turn 1 (Deathwing)
Couldn't do anything.

Turn 2 (Tau)
Movement: I decided to spread out my Fire Warriors and Kroot more to make his deep-striking more difficult. Otherwise, nothing to do.

Turn 2 (Deathwing)
Movement: His Command Squad deep-striked north of the stealthsuits. The other squads did not pass their reserves roll.

Shooting: The Assault Cannons killed off all of the Stealthsuits with the Assault Cannons and the Storm Bolters. Nothing else was there so nothing else could shoot.

Army (Tau)
HQ:
1 Shas'O w/ Helios
1 Shas'el w/ Fireknife

Elites:
1 Crisis Suit w/ Deathrain

Troops:
10 Fire Warriors w/ Devilfish w/ Decoy Launchers
10 Fire Warriors
10 Kroot

Heavy Support:
1 Hammerhead w/ Railgun, Burst Cannons, Multi-Tracker, Decoy Launchers, Target Lock
1 Broadside w/ Multi-Tracker

Turn 3 (Tau)
Movement: I moved my Crisis Suits out from behind the hill. I moved the Hammerhead 7'' to the left and moved my Devilfish back to where it was before.

Shooting: The Broadside did not have LOS of the Terminator Command Squad, so I could not use them. The Crisis Suits, in total, killed off 2 Terminators. The Fire Warriors and Kroot shot at the Terminators and killed nothing. The Hammerhead Railgun missed.

Assault: I moved the Crisis Suits back behind the hill.

Army (Deathwing)
1 Command Squad w/ 1 Termies w/ Storm Bolters, 2 Termies w/ Assault Cannons, 1 Captain Terminator (or something like that) with Storm Bolter, Power Weapon

Troops:
5 Terminators w/ 2 Assault Cannons, 3 Storm Bolters
5 Terminators w/ 2 Cyclone Missile Launchers, 3 Storm Bolters

Turn 3 (Deathwing)
Movement: His other two squads made their reserve rolls and deep-striked. The squad with Assault Cannons deep-striked inbetween the Fire Warriors and where the Dreadnought was. The squad with Missile Launchers deep-striked, and scattered, a little ways north of his Command Squad.

Shooting: The Missile Launchers shot my Devilfish, but 1 missed and the other two failed to damage it. Some of the Assault Cannons shot my Fire Warriors, killing 3 of them in total. The Command Squad ones shot my Devilfish but failed to harm it.

Turn 4 (Tau)

Shooting: The Crisis Suits killed 2 Terminators from the Command Squad. The Fire Warriors and Kroot shot at the Command Squad, but failed to hurt it. The Broadside shot the Assault Cannon Terminator squad, but failed to kill anything (dumb 5+ invulnerable).

Turn 4 (Deathwing)
Movement: The Assault Cannon Terminators start to heard toward my Fire Warriors.

Nice battle. Terminators against Tau... that seems like an awful waste of terminators really.

I see your helios Shas'O killed a fair few termies. That configuration is very good at hunting those pesky 2+ save units. Good job on the battle!

I didn't place too well. My Devilfish wasn't fully painted, so I had to paint it, costing me a round. In the third and last round, I played Night Lord (or something like that) Chaos Space Marines. I made a careless mistake then, revealing my Stealthsuits to mass Bolter fire and Raptors tied up my Crisis Battlesuits. And my Devilfish was destroyed (immobolized shot rerolled an immobolized) while I tried to commit FoF.
