Default how to get massacred!

this is probably quite hard to explain in writing, so i will show you. its so horrible i almost cried. the terminators deep striked to where they are in the picture (which i proclaim is possibly the most awesome deep strike i've ever seen) and then were backed up by the assualt squad, i lost half my army in just two turns of brutal close combat...





just one word... Ouch!

So what? If they deepstrike, they can`t charge. You had one turn to get the hell out of there (i.e. back into devilfish, or just move away and rapid fire them), or to at least spread your army out so the Marines wouldn`t have been able to consolidate into your other units.

A couple of nearby Crisis wouldn`t have hurt, either...

Heads up, you live, you learn. I`ve tought my friends the hard way that deepstriking anything into the middle of my army is not a good idea (Burning Eye suits tend to be excellent teachers to Termies... >), and they`ve gotten far more careful with their `strikes every since.

Cheers,
-Bone

I've seen a pretty awesome Deep Strike similar when my Shas'o (Who's specifically made for tank hunting) landed behind a Land Raider on a scatter! And by the way, Fusion Blasters are awesome at 5" away on tanks. 8)

Have a static fire warrior gunline army?
thats the easiest way i know

If you really want to screw yourself add in an etheriall, some vespid and some kroot to the list and you will probably be done by turn 2


Seriously DSing termies aren't that scary. if you survive the shooting you are mobile enough to stay away from them.

I play ravenwing as well, i like high mobility armies >. my tau army is more than capable of putting up a good fight against ravenwing(and everything else because it is just as mobile.

Kroot against orks? Oooh, rough matchup. Kroot can handle many things, but the new orks are not one of them.

But yeah, static tau with vespids and an etherial is a recipie for disaster. Nothing is as funny as seeing an etherial in the opposing army when you brought a calladius assassin. At least, so I was told after 3k worth of tau ran off the board or died that turn.

Not unless the Kroot charged first. I used 14 kroots and 6 hounds to bully two squads of 40 boys and it is one of the few instances where my Tau actually initiated the close combat phase, and the only time I won close combat with my tau.

As for my ways of getting masacred;

1)Destroy all my vehicles

2)Charge me

3)Outgun me

That's the way to TA my Tau.
