Default [BatRep] Tau vs Imperial Guard, 1000pts

me and fingon recently tried out a list against my mechanised army and since he didn't have the models required yet so we played it on vassal

army lists

my list

shas'el TL FB flamer

crisis Shas'ui TL flamer BSF

2x12 fire warriors in DF with MT TA DL SMS

piranha FB TA DL

2xhammerhead railgun BC MT TA DL TL

fingons list

Doctrines:drop troops grenadiers camoline sharpshooters close order drill

command platoon
JO with 2 melta guns

anti tank squad 3 lascannons camoline sharpshooters

infantry platoon

JO 4 flamer

2x infantry squad sharpshooters

10 grenadiers 1 plasma gun 1 melta gun

hellhound extra armor

demolisher extra armour hull and sponson Heavy bolters

leman russ extra armour hull and sponson Heavy bolters

(just calculated the points again and they where diffrent again he had 30 pnt less)


the mission was secure and control omega

there was not much on the table the first turn since my army was mounted and fingon had few tanks


fingon wins the roll of for turns and decides that i go first
in my turn nothing happens

in his turn his grenadiers move into the woods

next turn the reserves show up for me a DF my commander and my pirhana
my commander lands behind his lascannon team and flames it 4 die the DF kills another then my commander charges into combat no wound on either side

in fingons turn his infantry and demolisher show up

the demolisher stuns the priana with bolter fire and the melta gunners both fail to hit the DF in the assault fase my commander kills the Last lascannoneer(how do you call a gunners from a lascannon equiped heavy weapons squad?)

in my turn i get as reinforcements a crisis suit (with dies by falling on guardsmen)
and a hammerhead which misses his submunition my commander and DF are more successful though succeeding in killing his command squads,immobilising his demolisher

in the third IG turn his hellhound shows up and completely burns my fire warriors

in turn 4 the rest of my forces show up and almost completely annihilate the IG

fingon tries to at least kill a single transport but sadly fails

turn 5 its all over for fingon. he has lost all his forces and the tau emerge victorious


any idea's to make a IG list to beat a mechanised army since tanks failed I'm now thinking of a list full of missile launchers and lascannons

after reviewing it all i think from now on fingon should write the batrep if we decide to post one again


Well done. 1+ Karma - C_V

Well done, Bloodfire.

But mind if I ask this, why the twin-linked flamers? That configuration is particularly odd.

Was the BSF just because you had 3 points to burn? Kind of wasted with a twin linked flamer! Otherwise the list looks ok.... did you tool the army uip knowing you were facing guard?
