Default First battle with Tau.I have some questions?

Well today I fought my first battle ever with Tau(or 40k for that matter)against Necrons.Now without making this into a gloating thread(which it basically is)I would like to say that I beat the c#$p out of him.Now with that battle over a couple of questions ariesed:

1)Do you think the JSJ is overpowered.Maybe it is because he was slow or the terrain was perfect but he just couldn't get a clear shot at me.

2)Can necron make a good 500 points list?Because I outnumbered him 2:1 and my list had 4 suits and a devilfish(amongst other things)

3)Pulse rifle rapid firing has a 12 or 15 inch range?

Well thats all the questions.Now that I finely found some people to play with.Expect battle report more often and of course my bu#t ugly miniatures making more appearances.

Way to go!!

No, I do not think that JSJ isn't overpower. It really depends if it is well executed or not. When well executed, it allow you to either remain out of range or use cover terrain effeciently.

I don't know about it. Where you using Combat patrol rules or regualr rules? This will have an impact. It also depend whether he sents his troop in a proper fashion to use the 'We'll be Back' rule or not.

12" this apply to all rapid fire guns regardless of max range.

Edit:
Could you give us a bit more detail BatRep? it could help us to figure out the detail.

OK here is my(also first)battle report

My list:
shasel
burst cannon
cyclone ion blaster
multi tracker

10 kroot

3 stealth suits

12 fire warriors
shasui
bonding knife
devilfish
smart missile system
multi tracker
disruption pods/decoy launchers(the one that makes you re-roll immobilised)

Himi will refer to him from now on a LOSER or just L)

10 warriors
3 destroyers
1 necron lord(give him enough equipment to make it 500)

BATTLE REPORT

Basically the whole time there were two battles fought on the table.The krrot and the shasel who deep striked were fighting in the upper left corner against the destroyers, while the stealth suits and fire warriors battled the warriors with the lord.By turn two the destroyers gunned down the krrot while the kroot killed one destroyer.Then the commander deep striked and killed one and charged the last one and also killed him.LOSER then failed both his "we will be back" rolls.He then went to help with the other fight.

By then the warriors lost only one warrior and managed to charge my fire warriors(I miscalculated the range)and slaughtered them.After that the stealth and devilfish shoot them causing 3 fallen warriors.Then the commander came and with the help of the rest of the forces shoot them until they phased out.

The end

My loses:
kroot 70
fire warriors 135

His loses:
everything 500

jsj is not over powered, its the only way for our suits to survive. If you leave them in the open for a turn, they will die against most armies.

Necrons are notoriously bad at 500pts. This is because they literally have to take 1 army. The troops choice alone is 360pts minimum. Then he has to take a 100 pt lord , give him a res orb, 500 point army.

Congrats on winning your first game, was the necron guy new as well?

1. JSJ is not overpowered, just really annoying to play against.

2. Necrons can't make good lists until they get around 1000 points.

3. Rapid fire for every weapon in 40k is 12"

Things I noticed:

1. You can't deep strike and charge in the same round.

2. If you beat Necrons in hand to hand and wipe out the unit, they don't get their WBB roll.

3. The Necron list was illegal if playing a regular game (only one troop choice), and your list was illegal if playing a combat patrol (Shas'El has too many wounds).

4. Good job beating him, but try larger points or official combat patrol rules.

-my fault.Wont happen again

2. If you beat Necrons in hand to hand and wipe out the unit, they don't get their WBB roll.

-His fault.Thank god he failed them anyway

3. The Necron list was illegal if playing a regular game (only one troop choice), and your list was illegal if playing a combat patrol (Shas'El has too many wounds).

-We knew that but this was more fun.We played by the official rules so mine was legal.

4. Good job beating him, but try larger points or official combat patrol rules.
