Default aah... Victory!

weee, just won an RTT allied tournament in Mars, PA. Of course I had my Eldar friend doing an excellent job as well, along with Eldrad tossing around psychic nastiness everywhere (Guide, Guide, Doom anybody?) It was a very enjoyable tournament, and three wins for the Tau empire.

Round 1
Speed Freeks and Tyranids
Result: Victorious Slaughter Turn 6

Round 2
Khorne and Khorne
Result: Victorious Slaughter Turn 4

Round 3
Necrons and Tau
Result: Crushing Victory Turn 6

The first game was so bad for our opponents. Lots of trukks vs vypers of str 6 death, and genestealers vs missile pods. It could have been worse for them though, if the stupid hammerheads actually learned to hit, but eventually they disabled the enemy demolisher, despite the demilishor not doing anything. Oh, and the broodlord got mind warred

In round 2, it was two Khorne vs mech Tau and Eldar, which was amazingly bad for them. On the first turn, the hammerheads earned their reputation by killing the berzerker glaive deamon prince and the predator outright. After that, it was just a slaughter, for us. The bloodthrister's champion died, bloodthirster appeared, and died. After turn 2, there was about half the starting khorne on the board, a starting strength of 48. After turn 3, it was just the rhinos, and 5 guys left. jet bikes and falcons drew the berzerkers to the sides, and then they got shot, by guided vypers, and submunitions that would actually hit. It was pretty bad.

In round 3, it was weird. The Necron player fell for Eldrad's redeploy trick, but they got first turn. THe enemy railguns did nothing. They shot and missed our falcon, and then we proceeded to systematically destroy the enemy Tau, and the destroyers. Once we were done with that, it was turn 4, and so we didn't get to wipe out the necrons, but with another turn, we would have.

Overall, it was as fun torunament, and if anyone wants more detailed battle reports, just ask, but right now I'm realy tired.

Cheers!

Great victories for the Empire. Also were your opponents noobs because two victorious slaughters and a crushing victory are quite an accomplishment for anybody.

noobs, not really, but I've yet to meet people that make really effective army lists that aren't one trick gimmicks and don't rely on getting lucky at RTTs. Plus orks vs Tau is a stupid match up. Tau basically win, as we are seemingly designed to kill orks

Cheers!

Hmmm quite true. Orks do fall in droves to pulse fire.

Congrats to you and your victory it is always nice to see the TE win a tournament. I do have to agree with you as well, Orks vs Tau is not a very fun battle to watch. Well unless you are a Tau Owner.
