Default Another big game. 12,000 point Tau army.

Reading about Railgun's 5,000 point battle and thought you might like to hear about a game we have planned for Saturday 16th July. It's a 12,000 point Tau verus 8,000 Imperial Guard / 4,000 Marines game. 3 Players on each side but we'll probably split command on a mission/board quarters basis rather than points value of force organisations.

I've been taking the lead as the Tau player, mostly due to the fact I've leant my IG army to one of the Imperial players in return for borrowing his Tau. Added to my own forces gives me nearly 8,000 points at my disposal ;D Waiting on the other players to add their forces but so far we'll be bringing:

FO1- (Mech)
Aun'Shi
Shas'o with fully tooled up body guard.
2 full XV8 teams
1 full XV15 team
3 'Fish mounted Firewarrior teams
1 squadron of 2 Piranahs
2 full Pathfinder teams
1 squadron of 2 Tetras
3 fully tooled up HammerHeads.

FO2 - Hybrid
Shas'o with fully tooled up body guard.
1 full XV8 teams
2 full XV15 teams
3 Firewarrior teams
3 Kroot kindreds
1 full Pathfinder team
1 squadron of 2 Tetras
3 fully tooled up HammerHeads.

FO3 - The stuff that's left over!
Deep Striking fusion blaster Shas'el
Deep Striking fusion blaster XV8
Deep Striking fusion blaster XV8
4 Firewarrior teams
3 gun drone squadrons
3 Broadside teams.

I'll be adding a Baracuda over the next week, and building a Tiger Shark AX-1-0 for the player bringing the last 4,000 points.


The Imperials have a couple of infantry based Force Orgs, one Armoured Company Force Org and a Valkyre based Storm Trooper mini-FO supported by Vultures. Marines I'm not sure on yet but maybe bringing a Thunderhawk.

Playing on a 12' * 6' board with three "Eldar scientists" as our objectives. Basically it's an extraction scenario, go and grab the objectives and exit them off the board before your opposition.

We've played this kind of thing before, using 10,000 imperial versus 10,000 chaos last year. Still have the battle report on my PC if anyone is interested (although don't believe it's on EC.net anymore) and the pictures can be found here http://www.pbase.com/lurker/10000_po...aos_v_imperial

yeah, my opinion.
The last 4000 points vs 4000 points game was played in about 6 hours.
And 12000 points are ... huge?

um yeah
The movement phase alone could take hours let alone all those shots.*
Assuming movement and a half carbine half rifle split that is 120 shot just from firewarriors EVERYTURN, more if they stand still.

By the way: what is 12' * 6' in meters?
I had always problems with my orks to place them and when I imagine 8000 points of Imps...

12' x 6' = 3.69m x 1.85m

Yeah, I've been itching for a good fight myself! I'm sick of eldar, orks, and nids nonstop!
