Default Dark Eldar is damn hard to defeat

Just finished a game against DE.
I used my regular army, exept that I used some kroots. (http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...88001#msg88001)
My opponent kind of "deep strook" all of his transports, but was unlucky and only got in one transport
each round. The problem was that in the first round he got his transport straight into my FW's and blasted a whole
unit away(open top vehicle), and then darklanced my HH into oblivion.
Through the whole game I had to deal with CC (thank the higher forces for kroots).
I won in the end, leaving my Shas'o leader, 1 kroot and one FW on the table.
Wohoo, I won (kinda)... :P

You were in combat most of the game.
You were struck upon by dropping raiders.
You lost so much to darklances.

You still won?

Awesome! ;D

Maybe you could give us more a battle report? I'd be interested to read

I'd be wondering how he assaulted fish bourne FW, what rule he used to deepstrike tanks (never heard of raiders DS'ing before) and why a sub round didnt get the DL squad before it got eaten.

a rough list for the DE and a ref. on the DS rule would be good

and its "Deep Struck" , proper Engrish matters

I'm pretty sure that Raiders can't deepstrike unless you're playing by 3rd Edition rules

Just for reference, Raiders can take an upgrade "Screaming Jets" that allows it to Deep Strike. Chapter Approved 2004.

ah, that must be it then :P.

I'm not seeing the use of it though, they come down picemeal and are then picked off by the railguns and crisis.

seems like a bad Idea to me, might be good if they could assure more than half of the raiders came down on the second turn.

raiders move 24" right? Why doesn't he move 24" directly at you and use a dark eldar FoF? Right in your face, mulching 1/2 your army?

If pulled off right, you would only have a limited response which could be dealt with by reserve units like jetbikes.

because the Warriors would be better off assaulting, Warriors and their uber sybarite are quite lethal in CC to normal armies, They>Us in CC by a long margin

*thinks for a while... carefully*

If everything tau could move 12" or more....
raiders are open topped right?
If so, they stand a good chance of assaulting tau. If not... screwed.

Assuming my memory is correct; skimmers move 24" right in front of tau. tau open up and pop about 2. others move 12" towards tau and rape them, the end.

With the fishes, though, DE would have to pop them first to be able to assault the juicy meats inside....
Dark lances, I SAY!

DE are not that tought to defeat with Mech tau; only in the hands of a capable commander could they prevail.

I dont feel like coming up with tactics to perpetuate staticness but I'll say that for mecha it comes down to how many DL he gets, the main scorces are 10 man 2 DL squads and ravagers, if you can down those playing mechtau you've got the game in the bag, if not youre in trouble.
