Default Flank denial

Is there article or post about flank denial using the Tau. I'm trying to look for it.

I don't think so.

However a 20 kroot unit on both flank should do the trick, pretty well

Also Piranhas can deny the flank to enemy vehicles. Fireknives and Helios can take on almost anything, as long as they do not get swamped by mass infantry. It all depends what you want to deny.

Boneguard is right on with the Kroot answer. Spread them out a bit so that a single flamer or barrage does not kill them all. The Krootbox tactic is wonderful for taking and holding flank objectives..

Plus with Kroot you can line them along the edge, preventing any units from coming from them 20 kroot for 24" of flank...easy math.

A bit of a waste, ain't it?

Do what I do with my Guard; Refused Flank. Basically, you deploy only on one side (Right or Left only) of the table. Thus I only need to worry about my Front and Left (or Right) so I can just dedicate one unit to protect it. Like so:



Simple and you only open up a few fronts instead of your entire fronts so you can focus fire and make your opponent come down that very lane.
