Looking at your list i'd say your opp were upset as they didn't have any decent targets to fire upon in their shooting phase.

By no extension is this list Cheesy, as there are plenty of gaps in this list I would have been able to exploit! That being said, approximately what are some of the other lists being used?

well this is a very basic mech tau list not one i play close too, but a very basic list for all comers. to tell you the truth i believe most of your opponents were very over confident in their armies and maybe not have played against tau very often or a good tau player. any how congrats if you lose so what if you win so what thats how the seeker missle fires (ha).

Bastards. This is why you don't let OTHER PLAYERS grade their opponents.

Evil shadow please use spell check. There is one or two spelling mistakes.
Your opponents may have just not liked how you took minimum
troops but maximum everything else.

yeah man, a click of a button can make you sound _that_ much more mature.

Listen, in these tournaments, you probably have to let people cheat/abuse rules then solidly whup em to get a high "sportsmanship" rating.

Theres nothing worse than you correcting someone for their mistakes/cheating then they keep doing it and you keep pulling them up, only to have them throw it in your face and tell you that you are a powergamer/cheesy/only here to win. If its only a game then don't cheat loser......

your list seems fine to me, i reckon it's just a case of sour grapes. is it a system where you're rated by your opponent? i hate those, they're always biased.

sounds like, carping aside, you had a good campaign at the tourney: fancy doing some battle reports?
