Let me point out that before writing this post, I had writtin a much longer version containing the army lists, specific moves and shots of the battle that occurred, and after there was a power surge while I was putting in the last sentence, I was quite frustrated. So if you have any questions, just ask.
A 1500 pt cleanse game btw. Deep strike, victory points, infiltrate.
I recently played my newly constructed Tau army vs. my friend's imperial guard, and was slaughtered by turn 3 or 4. My biggest problem was my inability to deal with his vehicles and far off heavy weapons after he took out my hammerhead and pathfinder squad w/ devilfish. I had 2 seeker missiles on each.
He hid his Basilisk and remaining leman russ (he had 2, i took out 1 after 2 seeker missiles and 2 railgun shots) behind a building. My broadsides were too slow to get within sight of them anytime soon, and all I had left was the small remnants of a stealth suit squad, an ethereal, and 3 firewarrior teams.
