My Army is geared for heavy marine killing so nothing on their really scares me apart from guard with artillery, earthshakers landing on Hammerheads do not a happy Shas'O make.

I would have to say space marines because rhinos turn in to tissue boxes in front of my rail guns ;D

I would say either Orks or Nids... both seem to be what tau armies are designed to destroy.

I've never had problems missile podding trukks to dust, and hosing down huge mobs of boys with massed pulse/burst cannon fire... fuggetabout the submunition or airburst abusiveness for the troops.... while the broadsides and railheads punch clean holes in dreadnaughts/ battlewagons

As for Tyranid, while Ive yet to ever face one (bummer!), Id imagine its the same thing, loads of s5 shots to hose down gaunts, crisis plasma/fusion/missilepod to handle the biggerups, and railguns to hole the big big ones.

personally, the only problem I have on the table is still hoarde Space Marine armies, where their armor is just good enough so that I simply cannot kill enough of them in the time and space required.
Though I walk through the valley of the swarms of the clueless, I shall fear no idiocy, for the M-STAR flagged them 12 seconds ago, and the JDAMS are already freefalling.

I voted nids' just because I've never fought them and would love to. the rest have fallen to my victorious tau on many a battle field. >

Definatly Deamonhunters. Low model count, easy to crack open transports.

Orks with 10 nobs is the easiest choice to deal with from the vote.

But Tyranids I want to play against, only had the pleasure of once playing against them...

Never played against Dark Eldar and Necrons either, so against them would be fun as well

For me it's a tie between space marines, necrons, and tyranids.

Default Re: Is your army tough enough?

i voted without much thought.

my army would slaughter IG and i hope i get the chance to fight them. i have a pinning deepstrike army.
the artillery get the goodness of pointblank fusions on turn 2 and the guardsmen get the fun carbine barrage. lets see them make a pinning check on Ld 6 or less. i'd probably have the most trouble with the monolith but it's easy to ignore with tau and our fast mobility.
The Tau Empire fears no enemy, cowers from no fire, runs from no sword and turns from no battle. Together we stand and no one will make us fall. Now is the time for the Greater Good.
