PostSubject: 600 Points DE vs Tau   Wed Jun 07 2017, 09:45

Hi all,

I'm expecting to go against the following:

Coldstar Commander with target lock and missiles pods. (Move + Advance up to 40' and still fire all weapons without penalty)

Pathfinder team (5 units) with tactical drones
2 x strike teams (5 units)
1 x stealth team (3 units)
1 x devilfish

I have in my collection
1 x archon
1 x Lhemean
4 x venom
1 x raider
20 x warriors / Trueborn (We proxy weapons)
12 x reavers
10 x hellions

I'm currently thinking:

1 x archon (Agoniser, Blaster, Phantasm Grenade Launcher) - 76 pts
9 x warriors (Agoniser, Blaster) - 75 pts
1 x Raider(Dissie Cannon, Shock Prow) - 126 pts

5 x warriors (Agoniser, Blaster, Phantasm Grenade Launcher) -57 pts
1 x venom (2 x splinter cannons) - 95 pts

9 x hellions (Agoniser) - 157 pts

Total: 586

OR

1 x archon (Agoniser, Blaster, Phantasm Grenade Launcher) - 76 pts
9 x warriors (Agoniser, Blaster) - 75 pts
1 x Raider(Dark Lance, Shock Prow) - 116 pts

5 x Trueborn (Agoniser, 2 x Blaster, 2 x Dark Lance, Phantasm Grenade Launcher) - 132
1 x venom (2 x splinter cannons) - 95 pts

6 x hellions (Agoniser) - 89 pts


----------
Option 1
Hellions are for killing small stealth teams and then path finders.
Venom with 5 warriors is for attacking transport + strike teams inside.
Raider with Archon and 9 warriors is for attacking coldstar + strike teams.

Option 2
Hellions are for killing small stealth teams.
Venom with 5 trueborn is for attacking coldstar + transport.
Raider with Archon and 9 warriors is for attacking coldstar + strike teams.

Ok sounds good but one thing.

PLEASE do not tailor (design your list after seeing the opponents). it not only gives you an unfair advantage when the game is about fun, not winning. Tailoring also does not let you practice designing a balanced list to fight many opponents. you will not always be playing that 600 point tau list.

From what I can see, you did not go out of your way to tailor. your small collection (much like mine) only really allowed for the units that you took.

I ken that and appreciate the warning, however - Both him and I know our collections to a tee and how we both play, especially in 7th edition as our lists were pretty much the same everytime.

He's just about to buy the optimised pathfinder boxset so I'm fairly certain he'll be bringing them as he's wanted it for ages.

The hellions are just there because I can finally use them effectively!

I'm currently still on the fence about whether or not I should go Trueborn or Warriors in the venom.
