Default Who needs tactics?

I kinda need some tactics against tyranids

inparticular.I usually just sit there and kill 3/4 of the army and then die because one

guant got into CC and tau cant fight in CC. My kroot never realy do anything but kill a

few guys in CC and my crisis kill everything until CC.(Close Combat)

yheah I cant really comment too much this

topic untill I have a rundown of the respective lists. What I can say get rid of

the kroot, against nids, they suck. Get more fire warriors, I don&#39;t care what

the question is.

What i hate most is the cost of the modles now.

$30 for one box of fire warriors. I can&#39;t really get more troops. I just recently

got my hammerhead and i&#39;ve had my tau scince they came out.

Buy Warhammer stuff on ebay. You can get a new

box of Fire Warriors for 22.00 or less.

More info

would be helpful. If you&#39;re doing that well, that is, killing 3/4 of the army

before they arrive, then you&#39;re doing many things correctly, I&#39;d say.

I&#39;m with you on the kroot, which is to say, I always take at least one squad

of 20 with my cadres. I&#39;d say on the face of it having units nearby that can

countercharge and support units getting charged. But until you post some more info,

I don&#39;t know that I have an "answer".

Why dont people just look at the Know your

The only problem is 3/4 of the army is gaunts and genestealers which aqdd

up to about 600pts. He still has 3 zonthropes 1 carnifex 1 hive tyrant (+2 save) 6

Warriors.... And kroot can counter charge? I never saw that..........
