We had an 800 point game last night and my Tau were soundly defeated.
The beginning of the battle had looked promising, as I nearly wiped out the Eldar Guardian Squad. Unfortunately they managed to avoid running from the table and so kept their Scatter laser in use.
About that point my dice rolling returned to form and I was getting well below average results. This made it particularly difficult for me to even dent the armour of the advancing Wraith Guard Squad.
The final straw was when the Warp Spiders appeared behind my fully loaded Devilfish, destroyed all it's weapons and stunned the crew. The Fire Warriors inside bailed out, took out three of the Warp Spiders and were then shredded by the mono-filament webs of the remaining Spiders...
My commander had joined a squad of 2 battlesuits which gave three suits equipped with Plasma Rifles and Missile Pods. In two rounds these only managed to inflict one casualty per round on the Wraith Guards. Then, unfortunately I left them a little too close and the Wraith Guards caught me in assault which finished off my unit!
All in all, a sad day for the Tau, and my tacticians will be returning to their drawing boards to rewrite their battle plans for next time...
As a kind of consolation here is a nice photo I found on Deviant Art:-
