Default Advice for Space Marines

I'm new to the Greater Good, and was wondering tips on how to beat space marines, both with my army and tactics. Here's my 600 point army list:

-Commander Shasel (fireknife)
-Crisis Suit Team (2 crisis suits; both fireknived)
-Bonded Fire warrior team (12) w/ Devilfish(gun drone upgrade)
-Kroot Squad (12 kroot carnivores)
-Gun Drone Squadron (8 drones)

My tactic is to stay away as long as possible with my Crisis Suits, while playing the offense with my kroot squad and gun drone squad. Once a squad of space marines comes in fairly close range, I manipulate the terrain to do a semi-fish of fury tactic. thanks

ok, first read This


drop the gundrones for another suit and fill the kroot to 20.

then you have an almost perfect army (exept for the lack of anti-tank) try to push for 750ts games, Tau either play combat patrol and do well, or play 75pts and do well, its hard to build antitank into 600pts.


but other than that you should be fine ;D, thats almost a perfect list once fixed.

unless of course you're like me and use wraithlrods in small games :P anwyay the fact is, if you know what army you will be playing and as un-sportsman like as it is you can just modify your list to suit it mainly in the sense that is it (like mr shakespere said) don't take anti tank equiptment unless you know you will need it because it can be very frustrating when you have a big rail gun with nothing to shoot it at but guants.

plasma is all well and good, but I'd have no trouble fitting a predator and a dreadnought in 600pts, and thats not skimping on troops either :P
