Default "Close Combat Tau Army"

Tau players and enemies of the Tau alike know that in stiuation would a Tau player charge into combat and expect to win. Even with the few attempts to try to increase the survivability of the Tau in CC ( Aun'shi, Farsight) it just doesn't work. However I thought it interesting to learn of your "good" CC experiences. I will start.

Campaign Game: I am fighting a Nid army and my stealth suits (3 of them) run into a Red Terror.
The name of the Red Terror just sounds bad but once I found out what it could do I waved goodbye to my suits. Come to find out 2 turns later all 3 of my suits are standing over the large carapace of the Red Terror. First battle of the campaign and Red Terror counted as a Special Character and he was no longer able to use it in the campaing. I must say he wasn't happy.

This topic has recently been discussed - please search the archives. In the end it all boils down to having incredible luck and that's about it.

indeed the light hearted topics are always fun to read, but i would prefer it if these could either all stay in one topic (i.e find the last topic and post back in there, it wont be necromancy) or go and stick it in general 40k. There area few topics there, 'funnniest/luckiest warhammer moments' etc.
