Default Defending against Tau in Bunker Assault

It occured to me today while I was destryoing another tau player that it must be incredibly difficult to defend against a good Tau army, or one that's tailored to do the job. Has anyone come up with a good strategy to pull it off. If so what army were ou playing and how did you do it.



This could have been posted in Tau but I want everyone to see it.

necron armies with veil of shadows usually kills off most of the bulk of my armies before i can do much to them...way more cc than i could handle (although i killed off 2 squads of wraiths with my stealthsuits in cc with no losses ;D)

Since this is a purely Tau topic, its going to be shifted.

It's not supposed to be, the question was how to defend against tau, not how to defend as them, in a bunker assault.

How many points are you talking about and what are troops are you using? Being that I play Tau and Space Wolves, I might be able to help you out if you help me out.

My only real army is Tau, I was just wondering because 2 of the 3 bunker assaults that I've played have been complete massacres..

Thats not the point. Means to beat an army should be discussed so that they can be neutralised. Take a look at the Necron board for example.

Could you tell us which army you paly, then I can help you out some more? Maybe some infiltrating combat units to go up behind the Tau lines, something to disrupt the static main guns for you? More details please!
