I can't thank all you guys that responded enough for your responses to my concerns facing Tau for the first time, and the further advise after a devasting loss my first time around (objective game being shutout 8-0). My 2nd game was a totally different story after considering everyon'es input after my loss. I combined you guys suggestions with my own play style to make a roster that caused a turn 5 Tau surrender.....mwahahaha. Again, it was 2000pts and objective, (Crusade) but only 4 objective total rather than 6 with certain values. Our battlefield was also lengthwise with 24inch d-zones. We still did the D3 terrain pieces per 2 foot square. We had more total terrain this time, which made a huge difference. I gave up my superstar Grotesques and 1 wych unit to get 2 units of 6 reavers each, Sathonyx with 11 Hellions and 9 Trueborn (6 shardcarbines, 1 blaster, 2 splinter cannon) on a Raider with Sliscus. Here's my winning 2000pt roster vs Tau. HQ: Sliscus, Sathonyx, 2 naked Hamoncului; Elite: The 9 trueborn on raider mentioned above; Troops: 5 Wracks w/1 liquifier gun and Venom; 9 Wyches (1 hydra gaunt, Hektrx with PGL & pwr lance) on Raider w/naked Haemi; 10 Kabalite warriors (1 splintr cannon) on Raider; 11 Hellions; Fast Attack: 2 units of 6 Ravers each with 2 caltrops in each unit (no AT wpns); HVY SPT: 3 Ravagers (2 w/dark lances, 1 w/disintegrator cannons).
I did the hellion, haemi, wrack pain token switcheroo recommended here to me and put a hemi with the 9 wyches (both suggested here by all you guys). I also increased my reaver unit sizes from 3 units of three to 2 units of 6 as you guys suggested. My opponent hated seeing his 2 rail gun broadsides get killed in assault by 5 Reavers on turn 2 after they'd killed 3 of 10 markerlight pathfinders on turn 1. My ONLY bad side was his rolling a 6 to steal initiative on turn 1 and promptly blowing up 1 ravager (yeah, I deployed gambling he wouldn't steal initiative...LOL). Bottom line, the Sliscus/Trueborn group, Sathonyx/Hellion group and 2 larger Reaver groups were superstars.
Thanks a million guys!! I couldn't have done it without all the GREAT ADVISE HERE. I have 2 more boxes of Hellions on order. As my user name indicates, Hellions are my favorite unit anyway. It'll be fun experimenting with 2 units of 11 Hellions each or going with 20-22 in one unit.

Well done, mate. Always nice to read about a great turnaround. You are spreading the fear and the pain, and all is well!

Have another game this week, but he's surprising me and not saying whether he's bringing Space Wolves or Tau. Thanks again to all here!
