Home field advantage-quick batrep with pics
Today i made a challenge against a second tier tau army and as i thought it would be appropriate if we broke out the desert table.
He won first turn and made me go first, not wanting to become railguin fodder i reserved all my units, he did the same.
the first 2 turns nothing came in for me or him...going to be a fast game. on turn 3 i got brey'arth in and he got like half his force.
One critical shot took down breyarth, but i my next turn i managed to roll on a few more units. i took down his flyer then managed to drop his melta hazard suit before it could get to close. he got his remaining flyer in behind my dreads disabling one and killing a second.
His broadsides finally came in on turn 5, did nothing while i in turn did my best to deal with r'ala, the tetras and the remaining baracuda(i managed to take off most of its guns).
The broadside finally paid for themselves but taking out the achillies. we each held an objective and the game went on another turn. i proceeded to shoot his broadsides off the table. it turned into another stalemate with each of us holding a single objective.
And the game ends in a tie......again
it was a fast 3 turns , i came away with lossing-
