Hmm, Orks got really crappy with Speed Freaks being removed. I played a CoD game today against them, and it was a massacre. I wasn't really that happy because the game isn't really that fun for either players. He hardly got out the deployment zone before my 5 skimmers just wailed on him. The rest of the game was mopping up the random units that were still left around around.

Honestly Tau are a superior fight force in a CoD battle. The ability to completely circumnavigate terrain is huge, and the stratagems help make up for the armies weaknesses. Against Orks it's hardly fair because the poor boys in green can't get into combat, have huge squads stuck in cover constantly, and any possible LoS is cut of. Assault rolls also factor in, though cover saves work well for them. The Orks really need a new 'Dex...

Anyways, good read and great pictures.

Yea, Tau are definately a very hard army to beat in CoD, but i think i did pretty well. I think thats probably because i play bad moons, meaning i have orks heavy weapons attached to everything (my 5 rokkit flash git squad and kommandos took out almost 400VP of vehicles between the 2 of em).

The reason i did so well is cause i had such a chunky heavy support part he just couldnt kill it in time, which protected my boyz from a lot of shooting. My advice to any ork players facing tau would be the sewer rats and engineers strategems. Then just deepstrike (essentially) you entire army, popping smoke on the turn you come out, ready to assault with everything next turn.

For mechanised tau, rapelling lines is quite amazing. The advantage it gives you is the ability to instantly take over a building, from the top, which would usually take you at least 2 turns to reach via the stairs. If you do this with 2 units in the first turn, you will have 3 defended buildings right away, and your firewarriors will be able to blast away for the whole game.

broadsides are also very good in CoD. put them on the top of a building with 1 or 2 shield drones, and the enemy will not be able to get them out. The Ion cannon is also a lot better than the railgun in CoD, as most of the time youll be shooting at obscured targets anyway, so its better to get multiple glancings than 1 possible penetrating.
