Default Tau win Carnage! yeah

Wow, I was able to pull of my very first win last night.* It was another 5 man carnage game with BT Eldar, nids, SM, orks and Tau.* Rather than chewing details of the game, let me just say that when the Tau turn all their guns on a single target, it goes away.* At one ponit a single ork mob had 31 shots from DF, HH BC, and FW.* Then 4 more SMS and a RG submunition.*

In a single turn I took down 4 nid warriors, 3 SM, 8 orks!

Here is the list I used:

Shas'el xv8 fireknife
5 man stealth team
xv88 RG & SMS w/MT
HH RG & BC w/MT and TL
10 FW w/DF w/MT
12 kroot

I will replace the BS with another crisis fireknife, as he was just too immobile after turn 2 to get anything done.

Congratulations! Yes, Tau are the kings of focused fire. This Chaos player last night kept remarking about how I was concentrating all of my fire on his unit of berserkers and killing them one at a time. He found it funny. Well, at the end of turn one he had three less berserkers (feel no pain makes them very durable) and one less Predator, shot from the front with a railgun. At the end of turn two he had 4 berserkers left, and at the end of turn three he had nothing left at all. His demon prince fell to kroot and one crisis suit.

That prove it. The Tau work best in unison...for the Greater Good.

Massed fires me increased statistical odds of failed saves!

BTW, my crowning moment in the game was when the SM player deepstruck his speeder at me. It fired heavy bolter or some such at my HH....bah nothing put noise ;D

My turn, the broadside shoots him with railguns and SMS. Thing explodes in mid-air with 2 glances and a penetrating hit. Harharharharhar

That was the turning point. It was a great game.

The land speeder certainly can deep strike. *Says so in the rule book and in the codex, page 36.

Focusing the firepower of about 500 points of Tau is going to destroy just about anything. In carnage I've always thought that the best strategy was to go highly mobile and simply make sure the other players have juicier and or easier to kill targets then me. Stealth suits are awesome for this.

two things, first Ima gonna need to take land speeders more, second, it's no fire in a 500 point game, gaurd don't have anough guys to out gun you, marines?crons/grey knights don't have enough guys to soak up your fire, and orks?nids, can't swamp you. Tau just pound out victories! ;D ;D ;D

Play those same opponents in a 1500 point game and things are different. Still the Tau simply have to focus firepower. I tend to use a couple of firewarrior squads as a firebase then my suites, drones and a devilfish mounted squad zoom up and engage focusing their fire while being covered and supported by the long range guns and weight of the firebase. Works every time.
