Default Tau vs Speed Freaks

Alright, these games are always close for me and

I cannot ever guarantee a win. Could I get any help or suggestions? When your

up against 5 trucks filled with boys moving at 24 inchs all hull down cause of mecboy

with kustom force field and a trunk with 7 mega-armoured nob retinue and warboss, also,

looted leman russ ( not a big deal) and 12 bikes among other things ( killer kans, heavy

flamers etc) how can you possibly survive to win a game!? The points for all the

above is a total of 1700. Our games are usually always 1700pts.

If it's a close game why do you want to

change the situation? Oh and no army can ever garente a win.

I would use Battle suits and jump around like a

retarded rabbit shooting everything I have.

Or I would bring on some broad

side and light up those trucks like a X-mas tree

Oh, I think I mastered the jumping around part

LoL. Transports are rather expensive to purchase points wise and money

wise . Railguns can only do so much vs a truck with a kustom forcefield, its

always glancing. Plus, he has grot riggers to fix immobilised results. Okay,

is it just me or does the Tau lack vehicle upgrades. The eldar are a tech race and

there falcon is arguably the best vehicle in the game. Any comments?

On trasports the front armors is 11? If it is 11

FW can take them out. Let him move first(24&#39 on a 48' board(standard) he is

now in range. Just blast them with troops, they have str 5 so they would glance on a 6.



That combined with the retarded rabbit stratagy your set

Good point coz there also open toped, a

glancing hit is simmiler to a penetrating hit. Note with a maxed out Fire Warrior

squad you should get one glancing hit a turn. Add to thes the fact that a fire

warrior team can take out troops more efficiantly then a XV88 team. I think you

know where I am going with this. Note, sig.

Just divide your fire warriors into groups of 6

6 to hit
then instead of a 6 to detroy it's a 5

you cant

lose(unless you roll nothing but 1s)

its kinda cheesy when you spilt your FWs into 6s... just get a bunch of FW instead of

splittin em... they should be able to stop it with numbers

If you slit your FW up they will be able to fire

at meultiple targets

In one big group you take out one transport for sure but

then you face the 3 left
