W40K Battle Report - TAU vs DARK ANGELS

W40K Battle Report - TAU vs DARK ANGELS

Postby KInG » Thu Jan 09, 2014 6:22 pm

Ok, the battle report is done. I have it in private section first to get some feedback from you guys before going public. So, enjoy hopefully...


------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDITED - with video above.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

OP: Wow, 20 subscribers already on our Youtube channel :) I feel like I should be doing some kind of celebration.

Ok, we will celebrate with another Battle Report. I have my Tau player confirmed; Darklighter. So what do you guys think I should fight him with?

Painted options:

Chaos Daemons - Khorne
Imperial Guard
Space Marines (or any chapter) - painted as Dark Angels though.

I'm tempted to try Sm and see if DL's comments on vehicles and Tau having trouble with armour now, holds true... But I'm gonna let you guys decide. We should be able to squeeze this in before the next Battle Report which will be Tyranids if all goes well.

Ok so who shall fight the Tau?

Already saw guard vs chaos, so I'll vote for marines.

I always had success with paired vindicators, they can focus fire on one target, or cover each other with interlocking fields of fire.
I also like to put a squad of terminators in a land raider redeemer. Add Chronos to the mix and you have a great unit.
Of course, I last used these units in 5th.
Haven't had a proper game yet in 6th, so this might all be crap now.

3 landraiders! Plasma rifle proof those marines!
I used 3 deep striking landraiders once in my blood angels army to great affect as my opponent forgot they could do it!

IG, it seems the right match up for TAU to face the old king of the gunline armies.

i could do a BA list for that...

@BANE - IG would struggle wouldn't they? Firewarriors would eat up the guardsmen at range... What kind of units were you thinking of?

Doesn't matter if they struggle or not, it's the theme, or the point of the batrep ie the old gunline list vs the new master gunline. You need some sort of hook to justify the batrep not just here is a game I played but more I am showing you this game to highlight this .........

You need to show hard match ups or was to achieve something particular such as this is how I deal with screamerstar this is I deal with duel drake list etc etc.

I agree with Bane. I also think your guard list of spam would work well. The three flyers would enable rapid redeployment and pask and his sister tank are always a welcoming anti infantry choice.

ok then, IG it is, Darklighter, you are not allowed to see this thread ;)

Any must have units? Is the death strike missile a 'no cover save' weapon, must check ;)

Yes, death strike missile ignores cover saves.
