last tournament i was in- WARPcon, the largest student run game con in the republic of ireland was won my tau.

4 tau armies, including mine. We played 16 games. 5 games each I only played 3 as i was screwed out of my two others- my opponent never turned up for one, and supposedly i never turned up for the other, despite the fact that i was there-long story. another guy only played 3 as well- never turned up on day two.

So, of those 16 games, we won 14. 1 of the missed games counted as a slaughter for me, and the other counted as a loss for me (i still grumble about it- its a LONG story!)

A tau army won, with 5 massacres.

Good call Frank...I am sure there must be others out there with tornument winning lists! GW tornuments are fine, it doesn't have to be a Games Day win or something huge like that! Also a picture of your army would be nice to go with the list...

he played, and won against:
imperial Guard- last years champion, no less who i also managed to beat, along with orks! but my win was a lot less spectacular, and was only one of two game where stealthsuits did useful things.- rough riders, conscripts, creed, basilisk, 2 leman russes, stormtroopers with deepstrike, and 2 platoons.
Drop pod marines-who i lost against as everything i fired either missed, or failed to* wound/penetrate. 2 rhino squads, 2 drop pod squads, vindicator, whirlwind, dreadnoughts
World Eaters- turn 2 victory, bloodthirster, bikers, and dueds in rhinos
Alaitoc Eldar-turn 2 or 3 victory. no idea of their list
Daemon-bomb word bearers (7 daemon troops-knornate dudes, and daemonettes, 2 tooled up chaos lords, min chaos SM squad) all that was left of them was 2 bloodletters (i think thats their name) and the word bearer player cheated!

and I've told you his list before. its the style i'm leaning towards.
etherial
3 hammerheads- 2 rail, 1 ion, twin bursts, trackers, decoys, and t.locks
20 kroot-shaper, armour
11 fire warriors in a devilfish w/decoy launcher
crisis suit- not sure if it was shas'el or shas'vre/ui fireknife IIRC
and the rest was made of static fire warrior teams. 3, or 4 if i remember correctly.

I played mech-tau, but due to inexperience, and a slightly dodgy list i didnt do fantastic. i was somewhere in the upper middle of the pack, i think. i was happy enough for my first tourney though- still had 3 wins, 2 losses legally.* But it should have been 1 loss, 1 draw! grr! i had a list made out, but on the day i did not actually have what i thought i had. so i made a mech-tau list on the fly, threw in too many crisis suits with dodgy combinations (twin fusions-grr!), stealthsuits (grr!) and a broadside(grr!), where i would have been a LOT better off with more fire warriors, markerlights and a hammerhead. Still, i learned, and had fun, and lots of beer. Struck out with a gamer chick though, and the dude in the corner, who i thought was gay got her! grr! and i learned i don't like playing against beardy space marines! GRR!

Biggest student run convention in the republic? Possible free beer? Interested? ;D
