lol, tau should be able to beat orks easily anyway, but in combat! ;D the ork player must have been wondering what he could have done to win! Nothing can stop the greater good of tau! Can you give us some more detail on his units/sizes etc.?

Give us the details!* We'd like to know exactly how fw's can defeat orks in cc, and then maybe try it ourselves.....

i can see it, i mean as long as they win initiative almost any army can beat some orks in close combat.

This is possible, it's weird, but possible. I had similar experiences.

It works out, simply because sometimes, they strike at the same time -- which afford the Tau to hit on 4's and wound on 5's (and the orks hitting on 3's and wounding on 4's a lot of times). The difference is, the Tau can be evenly matched via numbers and when they strike at the same time, the Tau can make 4+ armour saves and the orks will fail those 6's. Though I think it must have been a very small mob of Orks (ie: 8~10) and a full or near full squad of Firewarriors

its quite easy really you get photon grenades and fw have higher iniative than shoota and the s and t and the Ws skill doesn't affect much and the dice roles are lucky, Easy.

FWs have the same Initiative as orks assuming they didn't get the Waaagh! (which is automatic if they have more than 12 boyz in the mob and very likely even if they have fewer - if they have the Waaagh they strike before the FWs). They should have struck struck simultaneous.

Keep in mind that rolling dice can be explained by statistics, on average the orks would probably win but there are always exceptions at both ends. This does of course mean that somewhere a squad of firewarriors has been shot to pieces by slugga boys.
