Default I am Confused about Fish of Fury

I know you use the Devilfish (warfish in my case) in a v formation with the firewarriors inside the v, but does it still work with the Devil/warfish landed? Or does it have to have the air floaty stand thing that drones use??

Well, how you model it does not affect FoF. You can mount the landing gear and still claim it's hovering. However, if you ruleswise have it landed, you cannot shoot below it (as it blocks LOS like a normal tank).

Did that answer your question?

I have also been a little confused by how this tactic works. If anyone could explain it clearly, and maybe post some pice, I would be greatly appreciative

Skimmers don't block line of sight, but enemy will have to pass a Ld check to shoot past the Devilfish, and if you do it right they will be within 12" of your Pulse Rifles but unable to charge them because of the tank in the way. So basically you are allowed to shoot up the enemy point blank, and they have a very limited ability to fight back.

So you pretty much get one turn of rapid fire goodness on the enemy, two if you need it. Anyone without some movement special rules will have a hard time taking advantage of your biggest weakness, which is close combat ability. That's the gist of it.

Be warned though - I have had no end of problems using FoF, as most of my opponents end up starting huge arguements that they can charge, and that it is stupidly beardy etc etc. Its got to the stage where I daren't use it, as I will face a massive arguement. Its sad

It's unfortunate your opponents don't put all that energy towards learning the rules and thinking up a useful counter tactic. (Like shooting the firewarriors with some heavy bolters, or indirect ordance fire?)

FOF can be useful but it's not the be all and end all of using a mechanised Tau army.

Yeah, marines just like to bitch about anything that stops them from doing something they want to do. It comes from "Oh I've played first edition so I kick your butt, but I don't know the rules for 4th edition so I'll do what I feel like" attitude. Either that or its some little midget that goes and cries to his parent about how much you cheat, and said parent walks over you with a threatening leer. Now those normal marine players are vey enjoyable to play against. They just accept what you do, and be done with it.
