Default what aramies that are easy to beat when u are tau?

So i've been recently thinking am i the only Tau player that thinks that the imperial guard are one of the easiest armies to kill when you are playing tau or is it just me if it is please enlighten me because i must play some really rubbish imperial guard players because i can litraly wipe them of the face of the planet by the 3 turn of the game.

if this is just me please tell me cause i need to know.

lol, yes you are playing terrible guard players.

With 5th edition, IG are about the most powerful army in the game.

No army is easy to beat if you are playing a seasoned veteran but from experience i have found that space marines are easy to beat due to their smaller numbers. basically concentrating your fire is easier and you do not have to kill 50 guys to expose a flank

It's the player thats hard/easy to beat or the army composition.

I find SM easy because I've played them most and Tau have a lot of nice anti-marine weapons.

well im not going to lie the list i used was very beardy indeed!

took 2 hq's - shadowsun and shas'o with full retinue. they had a airburst frag and cyclic ion blaster in there.

two 6 man fire teams i think

pathfinders

3 sniper teams

a stealth team

a broadside team

and 2 battlesuits with fusion blasters and missile pods i think.


basically the snipers are your best friend especially when combined with pathfinders because it basically means you can hit and wound with 2's. and with ap3 its lethal!!!

you should priorotise threats in this order:


transports/tanks
rangers
farseer
banshees

remember to use the suits to do their in and out of cover thing and they can never be hit with good use of cover the snipers can hardly ever be hit because of the stealth abilities and remember to protect your fire warriors. also any unit that you marker light with your pathfinders should really be compltetly destroyed that turn (dont waste marker lights)

aside from that just remember you will get munched in close combat with aspect warriors.

ooooo and remember to look out for blade storm!! just stay out of the way of his dire avengers or they will destroy you!! as they did to my whole hq section!!!

Going against IG with 3/4 large blast attacks on your side can be pretty damn fun...
