Default The Struggle for Vor'Anoth: anyone played it?

As the thread topic header asks, has anyone played the Tau vs. Orks Campaign that they made up? if so, how did you fare on the first mission. I have yet to find an Ork player to play it against, but the Combat Patrol Mission seems a bit skewed in the side of the Orks, both in test battles and in statistics. 5 Tau Fire Warriors with 1 Gun Drone against 10 Slugga Boyz with 2 Big Shootas doesn't seem right at all. even on a 4 x 4 board, it's extremely difficult. the points aren't even matched out right to boot. The reason that i'm complaining is because the winner of this will be able to play Kill Team missions with 2 Specialist Kill Teams. In short, whoever wins the first mission will ultimately have quite a definitive hold on the rest of the campaign. Agree? Disagree?

Well, my feeling is that if you can't kill them by the time they get up to you (you can start firing first turn on a 4' x 4' board) you have bad luck. Even with their Big Shootas, they aren't going to hit you often, and you get your 4+ save. Plus the drone gives you a pinning test for 2 turns at least.

Theoretically, yes you're right. But, if you place terrain the way it's supposed to be placed, it's highly slanted in the favor of the Orks. People underestimate Ork shooting a lot. If you read the WD in which Orks fight the UltraSMurfs, you'll know what I mean. a horrible shooting phase generally leads to a very scary shooting phase in the next turn. I've see it happen, and I've experienced it firsthand. and Str 5 AP 5 Assault 3 @ 36 inches is nothing to laugh about.

And this is in this thread why...?
We are discussing a Tau-Ork campaign, not some lucky streak in a completely unrelated topic.
