Default THE WORLD IS ENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I just saw at my GW made me crap my pands with disbelief and sorrow.it was tau vs. shooting tyranids, and the tyranids won! THE NIDS WON! shooting nids vs tau should have been a slaughter! smouldering nid corpses should have littered the battlefield! but the nids won :'( This is surly a sign of the Apocolypse! THE WORLD IS ENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, it is possible. It really comes down to who played better. Tau are amazing at shooting, but like all races, have some weaknesses.

no, we still have a little under 5 years, the world ends in 2012.
anyways, that is insane, can you describe exactly what the force was consising of?
i immagine 4 dakkafex's 3 biovores, 3 zoanthrope, then fill in the rest with shooty warriros.

Actualy though, shooty nids is probobly better against tau then not shooty nids if you think about it.
cause with tau, no matter what hits your lign, it's taking it down. with all that shooty they can krump tau in hand to hand just as well and shoot them while they are going at yah. yah know what i mean?

Its not that hard to do you know.

Yeah, it isn't right, but its quite handily possible. :

Goes to show you what happens when GW decides to use a Fandex for the Codex...

Not that bad, but Tyranid fluff is getting overkill-y. SABFH (Shooty Alien Bugs From Hell) can pack a nasty punch with it's Carnifexii and Warriors, but the little guys are mecifully short-ranged... as always, they suffer lacking AP.

And I am leaning towards the Tau player not knowing what he was doing... I mean, unless the Tyranid player also had fast assaulty units the Shas'El* should have been able to outmaneuver the Tyranids.

*Meaning the Tau commander, not the model.

People on Tauonline play a lot of mech tau, unfortunatly many players don't even understand mech tau. i guess that kind of means they suck though heh heh.
what i am saying is that there is a good chance that they would not have been able to get out of the way of hand to hand even from termigaunts.
But you are right, shooty nids would have serious speed handycaps likely. Still, is a close combat carnifex going to be useful against tau? shooty nids/speedy nids beat tau better then just speedy nids. I think.

The Eldar arnt coming for the Tau yet...

Oh you meant because they lost to nids...

Well CC isnt the best way to kill Tau. It kills them up close but you have to get their first, and thats where CC becomes annoying.

exactly my point, except + anything kills tau in close combat anyways, (well not grots) and if a tyranid is using a ranged weapon, it will one be shooting you now, and two not realy lose out on close combat, though they probobly lose a good chunk of points...

Well nids are annoying becasue they can be made to be good at anything. Trust me, I used to think Tau were over powered because I couldnt beat them, then I beat them and now I think Eldar are over powered, becasue I generally beat Tau now lol.
