So this weekend I tried my 1500pts list
OMI w. TDA, Psycannon, NDH, PML 1
Strike Squad x 10 w. Psycannon x 2, Psybolt Ammo
Terminators x 10 w. Psycannon x 2, Psybolt Ammo
Interceptors x 5 w. Psycannon, Psybolt Ammo
2 x Dreadknight w. HI, NGS, PT
I played agaisnt a Tau force comprising of
2 units of Kroot
1 Command 2 plasma, 7 marker drones and a batman belt of gadgets.
3 Broardsides with high yeld missles and smart missles
1 Devilfish with some fire warriors in.
The Dread knight tag team jumped and kill phraina and kroot to a crud load of shot and killed a riptide
the intecepters got a lucky shot on a hammer head with the psycannon.
Where the strikes where deployed there were out of the game from the start and the teminators didnt do much again infact nothing really.
i lost due to poor deployment and poor target priority. Also my a opponet hunkered in one corner.
I really shoudl of deployed my entire army center board.
ive played 2 games against the Tau now and ive learnt some things that you might find usefull.
* If missle broadsides are on the board they are you top prioity with marker light being then next.
* Dont underestermate Kroot snipers.
* Do not assault Tau with just one unit no matter how hard you thing it is. It will take heavy casulties to shooting.
* Allways if you get the option make Tau deploy first.
my next game was against necrons and i won.
from what I know he had
4 lords broken off in to units
2 units of 10 imortals
1 unit of leich guard
2 of those tesla barges
unit of deathmasks
nigth scyth with more imortals in it.
The dreadknight were great in this game burning lots of necrons and chopping them in combat. They died to the unit of leichgurd but they held them up for ages. the interpters shunted behind a barge and killed it then died. Th strike squad took a lot of shots from them second barge and deathmarks down to two men and died in combat to wraiths. The terminators held the center 3 pts objective and killed anything that came in range. 1 unit of imortals, the scyth, deathmarks and would of killed more if been more then 5 turns.
it seam the weekness is the strike squad it not pulling its weight and the intercepters are just killing somthing then dieing. for 160pts they are im thinking is there anything else i can put in for them?
Im unfortuanly thinking the Shunt idea is not working at this level and i thinking more fire support. the tag team dreads are beautiful.
so ideas drop both strike and interp for terminators or interpters for second OMI to go with the strike.
Maybe ill play a few more games this weekend see how they do.
