Default Mech Tau kick ass and stuff

Had my first Battle today using my New Tau mech force.

My army was a;

Shas'o
PR
MP

6 Stealth Suits

6 Firewarriors +Devilfish
6 Firewarriors +Devilfish
6 Firewarriors +Devilfish

1 Hammerhead
IC
DP
SMS

1 Hammerhead
RG
DP
SMS

His army had a;
Winged Hive Tyrant

10 Genestealers

3 Guard

2 Biovores

32 Guants

18 Anti-marine gaunts (his own concutions of St4 T4 Nids)

This Battle was a 1000pts.

We played a mission called "Firebase" where you have to secure at least 2 markers out of 4.

In the end, there was only 10 Gaunts left. I had only lost the Ion Cannon Hammerhead, and the 6 stealthies. It was a slaughter. I played it up close and personall, with my Devilfishes and Hammerheads continually flying over units. The reason why i love mech Tau, is that i could easily position my entire army to fight one bit of his army at a time. I did the FOF tactic maybe twice, once at turn one to turn Geanstealers into steamy KFC, then at the last turn (as i went last on purpose) to wipe out the gaunts to 10, so he could not claim the markers.

My Dice roll was pretty off the whole game, but it didnt matter. The Tau Mech worked to perferction. This worked out very well for me, and i cannot wait till i can field my entire 2000pts of Mechanised Tau.

I love the mech tau! He couldnt penetrate anything, my stealthies caused so much damage (causing 3 wounds to a Hive Tyrant in one round of shooting! OW!)

I love mech tau. THey have earned a place in my heart next to my Imperial Guard AC. And becuase im in the shits with my GF right now, there's room for em! hahaha.

Seriously, WHY DIDNT SOMEONE TELL ME ABOUT MECH TAU WHEN I WAS YOUNGER!? WWHHHHYYYYY!

There is just something so nice about having to put 7 Tanks down on a board.

It just...warms the heart.

I find the 6 FW + DV to be a very awesome way to go!

static is squads without a transport. well done on the win by the way, but i must say this edition of nids is easy prey fro tau. the fact that they're all sv5+ is a boon for us. and they do have an inability to kill vehicles. Like i said, i admire the win, but against other armies, that list would not be anyway as effective.

basically yeah, but the term normally applies to Fire Warriors.
