Default tau vs deamons

well tomorrow I'll be playing a 1000 point game against chaos demons what should I use ?

he said he might actually out shoot me ,what should I do ???

If you had any tau units what would you use against demons ? just remember to keep it under 1000 points

also what should I keep an eye out for ,and what should I be afraid of ,thanks

Ok i dont see how a daemon player could out shoot you. And ask him if any of his units have icons, because if he deep strikes a unit of say blood letters near you, and even if only the icon is left, he can Deep strike a blood thirster or daemon or other unit within six inches with no rolling.
kill all icons, and i would just use mass pulse rifle. Theyall have only 5+ or 4+ ward saves, and the submunitions on railgunsa nd pulse shots work perfectly. When I play daemons I usually win. Just remember to keep firing and kill banners.

i would go with railguns or sniper teams, the option for submunition is better and also the snipers good strength and AP is good against w/e does have armour, and also against the biggest daeamons. You get more shots off this way also, if you choose Railgun or sniper team.

IF he is tzeentchian, then he can and he will outshoot the tau, by a ratio of 1:1.5 with his horrors. As for his anti-tank, he can use the Lord of Change and Flamers to destroy all the tanks and also your broadsides.

That saying, you face them just like any army that deepstrikes fully; mobility and firepower. With that you will never go wrong.

This might work well, I might use this my self, but of course every commander has thier personal biasness, so alter as you see fit or dont use at all, up to you.

will use this but drop the crisis for stealths for the simple reason of number of shots and will drop the pathfinders simply because this is a kill everything on the board game and cover isn't that big of a deal. since hes always going to spawn 12 inches right in front of me let me rapid fire , then kill me with what ever is left next turn

the only thing I know about his list is that he will out shoot me ..some how

well the marker lights will help pump BS also. and the stealths are probably good. if he is tzeentch watch out! one three man unit of horrors can kill an entire squad of fw's in one shooting phase
