lol.... yea. the battle report quite explain it all. pitting it against a competitve Eldar - Tau list. Kill off the synapse creatures of the nids and you see the whole army crumbles (and is not hard to kill off these few bugs without any inv saves). lol

lucky me still got my Chaos armies. lol

That was pretty bad the instincts mechanic is fine but in its current form it will cripple the nid player. Fire all missiles at that synapse thing!

It will be auto lose if he brings R'Varna which specialized on killing ground MCs. Other than that, would be a good fight, though odds are more towards the Tau I think.

tried this list yesterday, VS marines a bit damn hard to play if I go second, cause he drops his dpods into my lines and unlike the previous list whereby the riptides really come into play with their interceptor I cant really fight back and lost pretty badly yesterday. Also I kinda played on the short table edge I should have had an advantage but I completely forgot he put two thunderfire cannons at the back and I should have measure and place my army outside his 60" inches... owh well... noob mistake. lost like half my army from my noobness

I wont call it quits yet but need to think more... if i really want to make this work. Definitely more interceptor but Avoiding using riptides for nw

yup... riptide is like a no brainer unit now for Tau. just like a heldrake for CSM. but if you can make a list that works without these power house units and win, the victory is much sweeter. Smile

*speaking from experience using my Huron Horde of DOOOM without heldrakes... Razz
