Re: A miniature vesa taps your hoof... [MAIN THREAD]

I will advance into the reactor chamber and detonate the EMP charges within the advance of the necrons, that should buy us some time. I will only activate the stasis device if all else fails as we don't know how, or if, it will affect these necrons. I will reinforce the chamber with the teams assign...

Re: A miniature vesa taps your hoof... [MAIN THREAD]

All right I am headed to the main reactor now with a cluster of EMP grenades ready to take out anything that might assault the reactor nine tunnels. I have also salvaged a small localised stasis generator. If I can get to the riptide I might be able to take it out of the fight at least for a small m...

Re: A miniature vesa taps your hoof... [MAIN THREAD]

Thank you Kakapo I have the enemy in sights and am ready to mark for your teams to engage. By the tau'va these warriors are strong,we have lost three shas'la already but I think we have them at bay. I will head for the primary reactor as reinforcements as soon as this threat is dealt with, unless th...

Re: A miniature vesa taps your hoof... [MAIN THREAD]

This is Monat Coldwind, I am in the lower levels of the orbital and have tracked a group of warriors heading towards reactor nine. and they have engaged and destroyed several squads on the way up! I am not equipped to take them on and request assistance as soon as any becomes available, I will do as...

Re: Clever Ork hordes

Ok thank you! That does sound like a much fairer scenario that will be more fun to play as i do know about the stompa being a win game button as i have tried to kill it before, failing miserably every time, that does sound much better! :D

Re: Clever Ork hordes

Thanks for the advice! :P how many SMS are you bringing to the field? SMS sound like they would work wonders with you. In terms of missile systems i have one twin-linked on the hammer head and one on the riptide (which is also armed with a heavy burst cannon) and if it counts on its shielded missile...

Re: Clever Ork hordes

I am not sure why annihilation gets to go most but does and even with objectives people often win through overwhelming victory points, or in a few cases wipeout. this is testament to my bad playing style that has lost me most of my games in three years of gaming.

Re: Clever Ork hordes

Anihilation is boring... And favors Orks or Nids (difficult to wipe out 30 models meatshield units before they run into your lines and kill you in melee). Very true and i dislike it because i have played it so much and can count how many times i have won on my fingers, which is why I have been tryi...

Re: Clever Ork hordes

thank you for all the advice it is much appreciated! :biggrin: Also - in all this - what are the victory conditions in your games? I sometimes get side-tracked killing/being killed by a foe and forget that victory points win games - and that doesn't always mean having to kill the enemy. generally we...

Re: Clever Ork hordes

So, how exactly do you guys lay out your terrain? Is the terrain at your house, or his? the problem here is we meet at a club to battle so neither of us can lay our miniatures out, and because we only have a fairly limited amount of time we have to get started quickly so because my army is smallest...

Re: Clever Ork hordes

i only have a pitiful 22 fire warriors most of whom armed with pulse rifles but i have 5 armed with carbines, i know this not the vest loadut for a force of infantry to have but that is all i am in possesion of. I also have considerably fewer marker drones than i thought, only having two. The total ...

Re: Clever Ork hordes

I usually go for teams of 7-12 in terms of fire warriors and if possible i tend too use them in conjunction with a devilfish in sea turtle though in this case i would sea turtle the kroot and keep the firebase in cover but able to get out quickly. In case the worst happens or the current set up beco...

Re: Clever Ork hordes

Apologies for not being clear enough I have 1284 points the battle will be 1500 points counting my friends army who will be acting as an allied detachment of space marines, i know this is an unorthodox setup but this was set up by my ork mongering friend as a way for a new player at our club to gets...

Clever Ork hordes

I have been playing tau for three years but i am still struggling to beat a friend who has large army of orks that he fully capable of using to obliterate all of my large units like a riptide and my regrettably few fire warriors and kroot using large hordes of boys and a single large unit of Nobs at...

Re: Fusion blade Commander: Sure we can fight!

Also the fusion blade provides an advantage over the opponent that they would never expect, after all no rational tau player would charge into close combat against an enemy unit. Although it is impractical against dedicated assault units like khorne besekers it is a startling and unexpected way to f...

Re: Eldar or Farsight Enclave allies?

Alternatively swapping the Autarch for a Farseer with guide could turn an overwatch into a one sided firefight. Not only would it dramaticly increase a fire warrior team's chances of survival in combat, it would provide an opportunity to thin an opponent's numbers down dramaticaly. This could win yo...
