Tau News and Odds and Ends!

May 23, 2013

Firstly I want to thank all the new contributors to Warhammer Tau. You guys have certainly stirred up some interesting discussions, and turned the blog into a community...



The big Tau news this week is the the Forgeworld release of the Imperial Armour Volume Three, second edition of the Taros Campaign. Bringing all of the Forgeworld Tau and Kroot models up to date with the 6th edition rules.

On a personal level, I got a 1000pt game in last night, against my pal Del's Iyanden Eldar. The scenario was a capture the flag game with each of us starting in opposite corners. It turned in to a real meat grinder. I lost my Hammerhead (which had been ineffective as I forgot to give it submunitions), both my Piranhas, both squads of Firewarriors, my Pathfinders and the only Kroot left on the table was my Krootox. I had 4 Crisis suits left.

The Eldar were also reduced to 2 Wraithguard, a Farseer and a Warlock.

Neither of us held our objectives, mine was uncontested, as both of our forces were forced away from it. The game ended with 3 of my Crisis suits sitting on the Eldar objective with no Eldar in the neighbourhood!

If the game had gone to a 7th turn I feel I could have pulled a victory out of it. I just needed to move the Krootox to defend my objective and send some of my suits to tie down the last of the Eldar. However, it was not to be as the dice ended the game, just short of my plan coming into play...
