Video Battle Report Tau vs Dark Eldar 2000pts link

Post#1 » Jan 14 2011 10:12

Guys check out my latest video battle report. I played my Tau against my friends Dark Eldar. It was a strange game as I had never played DE before. Lots of lessons were learned. The video is posted on my YouTube channel along with an After Action Report. I will also be posting a detailed After Action Report on my blog later this weekend. As always constructive critiques are welcome.

Good battle overall. One thing of note is that the whole "skimmer dodge thing" does not in fact work on other skimmers, as per the BRB.

As Kles'ro said.
pg 71 Ramming a skimmer

"Skimmers may try to dodge out of the way of tanks attempting to ram them (as long as the ramming tank is not also a skimmer)."

On your Objective, I guess hindsight says to not have the Fire warriors leave the Fish, even if immobilised. The FW heading towards his Objective couldn't do it on foot. Alas for MEq TROOPS :P
That way you could have held yours and got a *sigh* 1-1 draw.

You didn't use Piranhas. They could have contested his Objective, giving you a *yippee* 1-0 win. I think you did the right thing with the Hammerheads, sending them forwards with the same thing in mind. It is just a shame that Lances reduce our beautiful front AV....

I am wanting to try out all uniquely armed Suits in a team, for the sake of wound allocation. Whilst they are no TWC or Nob Bikers, it can still work, and did in this very game.

Overall, good game and thanks for going to the trouble of playing and posting it :D

This is great I have a match against Dark Eldar soon (not as big only about 1250-1500) but this will really help me being a new 40K player and all.

I am proud of my Tau going 6-0-0 so far!
Kill them before they get close.
