Default [BatRep] with pics, tau(sa'cea)vs skynids , points 1,850

Greetings all

Got a quick game in today againt the wifes nids.
her flying nid army-

VS
My revised(condensed for carrying space) sa'cea sept tau force-


The table at the start-


She won first turn and moved up. fired at a few units, downed my pathfinder warfish with a glance 6 and killed 2 inside.
i went to work on her warriors squads, doing most of my damage to the one coming up the center.
the view at the end of turn 1

.


Turn 2, my lone shas'o got assaultedby a nearly full warrior brood...and stayed there until turn 6 survivng with 1 wound left. iridium armor saved my bacon, and making most of my invul saves helped alot.

One hammerhead got stunned, one of my warrior teams fish got shaken, i managed to put a wound on the tyrant and wear the warriors down a little.


.


Turn 3....i seem to have forgotten to take pictures...stuff happened and stuff dies, but i don't recal details... LOL
on to turn 4

Turn 4 the dakka fex was hitting almost every shot! i lost the rails off of 2 hammerheads, the thropes anihilated my pathfinders(well 1 lived to run off the table).in return i killed a few warriors, but the flyrant shoot off everything i threw at him.

.




Turn 5 turned out to be pretty nasty for me, i saw it coming but there was no way my second commad team could get away from the flyrant.
they got assaulted, put a wound on the flyrant, took 2 in the subsequent assault phase...and then rolled double 6s for thier LD test and ran off the table. :'( one of my fish was stunned everything else unloaded at targets of opportunity. firewarriors also unloaded and added some extra fire. managed to kill some rippers and a thrope.


Turn 6. lost most of blue squad to the overshot from the fex's barbed strangler. but they stuck around. blues fish got shaken, my lone shas'o was taken down to 1 wound and stayed in the fight (a tau holding his own in CC, who would have thought it possible). the fex failed to damage the hammerhead it was attacking. the only things i did back was kill another thrope(she rolled double 1's on the only 2 wounds i did to it ;D ) and a ripper base.


.



There were a few tight spots in the middle and the bio plasma was paying for itself against my tanks. to be fair though fletchettes were doing thier job as well. even with my second command team running off the table, it was still a crushing victory for the tau by over 500 points......and my first victory against her army.

When I saw her army it looked liked you might be in trouble. That may have been because they were painted so menacingly, not to say your Tau were painted great as well. Nice write up and the pictures were excellent.

I have never seen a nid army like that before. All those warriors and the wings! Great report, but if you could post the army lists that'd be a bit better for understanding what happened.

Please avoid posting complete profiles and points costs (and wargear effects) in such detail.

Thanks for your time.

The Nids hurts my eyes for they are just to colourful, but also well painted at the same time which amplifies the purple and blue even more!

Kudos on that battle.

Mughi3, that's a nicely detailed BatRep, despite the missing picture.
Have yourself a Karma point. ;D

By the way, is the colour scheme on your army Chaos Black main colour, Codex/Fortress Grey secondary colour, Chainmail detail colour?
(because, if it is, I demand my old army back. :P)

hehe close but no cigar. i actually didn't use any GW paints for the main colors
the base color is HD interior/exterior black primer with some testors flat grey for the contrasting color. all the highlight colors(reds, blues etc...) were GW though
