PostSubject: Need help with Ork list vs. Tau   Wed Aug 28, 2013 8:19 am

Me and my pals are very competitive with one another. We are just starting new and will most likely not do tournaments. It will likely stay within the group. I run Orks. Orks are awesome. I got a buddy who runs Tyranid with a hive tyrant bought as his first model ever. I don't have problems there. Another buddy who runs IG and they arethe most competitive games ever. Last but not least a friend with Tau. I played against him twice and it was a massacre both times. Since we are all friends we ar lax on model usage. Slugga boys can be shoota boys.
His Models and the typical list I face.

3 Xv8 units with twin linked missiles and some other upgrades. but I think they were useless in the battle cause he pretty much just used them as scoring units.
3 squads of fire warriors with pulse rifles for rapidfire. One had an ethereal with fire storm thingy.
And 4 marker drone

I was unaware that there xcould be so much stupidity in a 500pt list

Anyway I was wondering a decent list to field that would at least make the battles competitive?

Basically his units were all set up front line so as soon as I got within rapidfire range it was a complete massacre. Turn 2 wipe.

Mad Dok and MegaNobz with cybork Bodies... Snikrot and Kommandos... And/or as many regular boyz as possible

And out of curiosity why no tournaments? or outside your circle of friends? Which is more than ok to do no issue with that just curious.

Well I mean its a possibility but it is more likely a distant future situation. One reason is because the IG player has his armies theme as the NCR from fallout and is using forgeworld minis for his shock troops and veterans. As well we live a fair distance awayand are more interested on a casual level. Most of us aren't big fans of the concept of " your strength is only as large as your wallet"

I'd Really like to see the NCR IG. I am a big fan of Fallout!!! Themes are ok in Tournaments and using Forgeworld models in leiu of another similar model is ok in CAG tourneys, hell we even encourage that. The wallet thing is not necessarily true the winner of the last Tournament at EGC was using Black Templar!
I understand the lengthy distance thing.

If you stick Mad dok in with the big boyz mob and upgrade them to cybork bodies (5+Inv) Then they would always get their save and Mad Dok gives a 5+ Feel no Pain too. Or for more expnesive points fun make them all 'Ard boyz for a 4+ armor too... And stick to cover area so he burns his marker lights on removing your cover...

And even with the mek putting 5+ cover he didnt even use the lights for the cover. He just upped his BS and with the amount of attacks he got I couldnt roll enough. While the XV8's proceeded to clean my lootas up nice and cleanly and take both first blood and line breaker

Well, you could load three battlewagons up with lootas and deploy them on a landing pad. Tau don't deal with AV14 at long range well. 45 Loota should be able to deal with the initial threats and boyz clean up.
