Shouldn't you know by now not to post useless topics like this?

The only viable answer is that all armies can be cheesy, it's just a matter of how hard it is to cheese them.

i would say no it is nearly impossible to unconciously cheese a Tau army. my points are that Tau are close combat demons (against a single guardsmen who, for some reason hits on 6s) sure they have big guns but they are useless when your opponents a terrain whore ("thats more than enough terrain" "NO IT ISNT, ive only coverd 90% of the board".)

I was going to not post. But then I thought to myself: "How would they know how stupid they were to even consider Tau being cheesy?"

Because I posted and said it!

Every other army has lots of options. But Tau have an increadibly well made, powerful list that CANNOT BE CHEESED!

I suspect we have some more developments yet to see in the Tau playcycle. We may yet find some cheese. I'm watching for the FAQs especially.

I play with 50-75 % cover, and I do fine it is not hard to play with cover.

How many armies can hit on 2+ and kill on 2+ for an average trooper, Eldar players don't play 3 falcon list, Tau players use 3 hammerheads, Markerlights are too over powered, and if tau suck in close combat how can my commander fight a nercon lord for 5 rounds with out taking a wound? Sorry to tell you but people are starting to dislike tau just like they do with marines.

What special rules are not in codex TAU Empire.

I am not trying to diss tau but we need to not be looked at as cheesy.

You miss the point. We don't have spectacular units, like Falcons or Wraithlords, but all our units have great synergetic potential power. It sucks (Synergetic Unit's Combined Kills).

If we are considered beardy... wait until the next Eldar codex. Then wait until the Ork codex. Then wait for ...
