My second game of my forced vacation gaming tour took place today at brimstone vs shadygeoff and his tau. As i wanted to try my probably tourney list and i know shady has entered as tau i thought it should be a nice test for my boys.
My list was bikes, 3 hornets in formation, couple farseers, warphunter, wraithknight and 3 small units of warp spider. Shady countered with a crissis suit and infantry heavy tau list with no MC and he had 3 broadsides some kroot aswell.
Taking nothing away from shady who is a gracious opponent i should have brought an alternate list and i think we would have both had more fun. As it was, this was a two turn game with me deploying first and going first. I was able to slay all three of his bunched up broadsides with my warp hunter, and killed most of his markerlight support and a few fire warriors with massed scat bike shots, than i withdrew back out of his range for his return volley's. His turn he mostly ran forward and didnt get to shoot much.
Turn two my hornets and all my warp spiders arrived (though one scattered off the table and was lost to the warp), and i ended up killing all but two models he had left on the table (two fire warriors), on his turn farsight arrived and valiantly tried to slay the wraithknight and failed to do so and we called it.
