I'll be interested to see the Space Marine and Ork lists that did well. I'm guessing the Nids, Tau and Eldar lists are pretty familiar

Tau Empire list, though I'm not sure about all the fancy XV8s names. I think Fire Knife is the Plasma/Missle combo. I'm not digging out my old WD where these were covered as I'm sure someone knows and shall enlighten us.

We share the same feeling towards Fire Warriors Laughing

Fireknife are plasma & missle pod. Not sure about the Deathrains, but I believe they are twin linked missled pods.

Looks like he didnt have to play Necrons, but after the third round thats a possibility. I really think he got some good draws to place that high. A single Space marine libby can destroy a Tau army. Or maybe just bad genrals, I dont know. I do know that Tau are a teir 2 army at best. The rest looks pretty reasonable.

I think mech Tau are a tier 1 army, perhaps you haven't played good tau players?

yeah man mech tau can be scary as hell. i have only faced them once.. but he was a really good player and ripped my stuff apart. though he was the guy who thought his suits could jump out of combat. or is that a special rule that comes with them? seperate topic, but i gotta know.

anyways.. mech tau are sick.

There is an upgrade to tau suits that lets them jump out of combat, but I think it might only be available to their HQ suits? I'd have to check.

The only type of Tau I havent played a lot are the crisis heavy like CJs. Other than that maybe the fact most of my games where with Necrons, Black Templars, or Space Wolves.

I dont think it can win constently(sp) against Eldar, Nidzilla, and Necrons. Generates to many bad match ups to feel good about it in a tournament field.

But if anyone with a Tau army wants to prove me wrong....

CJ is also a bad example.

Marc: Why did you ever sell that Tau army? We didn't bitch about it that much did we?

Haha.

We may be talking it up a lot.

It's basically a mech Tau army, but played better than CJ plays it.

I dunno Matt. I'm almost as bad as CJ when it comes to armies (tho I do paint them Wink ) After that final tourney match against Dennis where he was wiped out after turn 3 I knew it was time to move on. First Iron Warriors, then Tau and now I've fallen into Scouting Bikes for 5th Embarassed tho I really like how they are turning out.

I guess *shrug* but I'd rather get a game with my bikes if I get free time. Now if you're able to play weekday a.m. then thats a different mix. We would be able to roll up a mission and get in 1750 in 2 hours easy. Lemme know.
