Try keeping your FW in the devil fish, to get them to a safe place. Use your kroot as a fire line in cove, dont assault let them come to you to get that I10, and HH sub rounds are good, use that until they are all dead ;D Stealth's help out a lot to because of there fire power and they can hop away after there done .

Have you actually played any games against these genestealers, or are you just talking theoryhammer?

I ask, because Genestealers can Infiltrate, or Fleet of Claw, but not both.

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

ok, i understand what you are saying, but if they go first, it will definitely hurt whatever is not in a dfish, plus you have to remember the rest of the army will get there soon ( gaunts, h tyrant and if im unlucky a carnafex, which cant be instant killed by any tau weaponry). plus i have played them, but not officially, so doctor thunder, you might have a point. even if your right, unless i virtually wipe them out first turn, im in trouble

Ganestealers doesn't normaly infiltrate and they can use fleet of claw and they could have upgrade so they can move once before the game. One difference is if they are lead by broodlord, then they lost the fleet rule, but they infiltrate (and cannot use the scout rule).
