Default how can you call me powergaming?

I really hate soem people when they call Tau powergaming. I just wanted the opinion of you guys because I hate when eldar players with two falcons call my army cheesy. what do you guys think.

My army
1000

Commander with plasma rifle, missile pod, shield generator, HW MT (132)

Fire Warrior Team (200) x2
-9 shas'la
-shas'ui with bonding knife
-devilfish with decoy launchers

Piranha (75)
-fusion blaster, decoy launchers, targeting array

Hammerhead (195) x2
-railgun, sms, multi-tracker, decoy launchers, disruption pod, target lock, flechette dischargers

His army

Farseer with fortune

3 vipers with starcannons

Warps Spiders x2
-6 warpspiders

Wraithlord with starcannon

Falcon x2
-starcannon, holo-fields, spirit stones

Again, I know that these armies seem overpowered for 1000 points but they were both made to kill enemy bunkers which were objectives. Does he really have the right to call my army cheddar?

None whatsoever... do me a favour, and slap the other player from me for being a discrace to the Eldar.

You've got a decent army, but perhaps people call you a powergamer when they see 4 tanks on a table in a 1000 pt game.

I do know it seems powergaming for 1000 points, but the army is for a campaign in which all that matters is blowing abuilding up. I just play MechTau normally, so this is what I did.

I can see why your army's at an advantage against him, but I'm also noting that he doesn't have any anti-tank other than the Pulse Lasers. If the Wraithlord and one of the Vypers had Bright Lances, I would feel more pity.

WHOA! Anti-Marine army right there! And the large blast hsots from the rail cannons can eat him up easily. Ill show you power gaming...

This new kid who was starting IG, i took him underneath my wing and am teaching him the ways and in his first game EVER played, his opponoent whos been playing since 2nd edition, took a WRAITHLORD! now this Ig guy has nothing that can even touch it except for his one basilisk. But this made me lose respect for teh guy caus eyou want people to love the game not think they will get smashed all the time, so i consatntly harass the guy for doing that and the like, because that's lame. Not even IMO, it is.

um...what was the point size in that game? because in 500+ you should expect to see a wraithlord.
