Default Some amazing CqC rolls!

Hello, I just played a game against necrons last Fri., and some messed up stuff happened. Here it is: I had a destroyer lord charge my [full, with 2 shield drones] stealth suit team. They killed it over the course of 2 turns, only losing 1 drone. Then, later, a [normal] lord charged an 11 man Firewarrior team, and, over the course of 2 more turns, the FWs took 9 losses, passed a bunch of tests and killed the lord [it was a 200 point lord...owned]. Now, this is the 1st instance that my Tau have ever been competent in CQC, besides the time my Shas'O held off a Chaos Lord and a full unit of berzerkers for 3 turns... I figured I'd post it, because of the really awesome they did!

If you play enough games you will see this. To be honest you need 4's to hit and 5 or 6's? to wound the regular lord. You FW squad should beat him if they stay around.

I killed an Avatar with my Firewarriors in close combat. This stuff happens.

Mine survived 42 attacks from a gaunt horde and that is just one guy.
