I was just wondering if anyone has any other tactics when using Tau BESIDES blasting the model with rail guns, because by the looks of it every 2nd model deserves a rail gun barrage, and well, I don`t have 50 rail guns in my army

How about how to take out eldar rangers and pathfinders?

Still going well. Not many suggestions this week, and the Daemon Prince didn't fare as well as others have...but we saw two of our previous threads return with further discussion, so that's great!
We could still use some ork and dark eldar suggestions, and the IG as well.

Terminators have a lot of stars, but I'm afraid they might end up in the same "Blast it with railguns" category as previous topics, so I'm going to jump back to Eldar and snag everyone's favorite nemesis: Those damned skimmers!

How about vs the Ork Horde??

With a maxed out troop selection of 180 Orks coming in at just over 1000pts how do you combat them? Especially in 1500pt games.

Two months strong so far! You guys are awesome!
Any more suggestions/feedback on old suggestions? Don't be afraid to speak up, even if you already made a suggestion.

Anyhow, the skimmers thread seemed surprisingly weak, considering all the uproar those things tend to cause...and again it was another 'shoot it til it goes away' subject...so that was my fault.

Earlier in the week Jezlad suggested Drop Pods for week 8
Jezlad oens the site, therefore Jezlad owns Versus, and a good chunk of my soul. So...Week 8: Drop Pods!

Hey Galahad I would like to see "Versus Necron Destroyers"

with T5, fast movement and firepower that can hurt anything in the game, they can be a real problem

Great job, guys. The drop pod thread had some great ideas in it and I think it'll pop back up now and then.

Kind of sparse on new suggestions this week, but the one we got was a good one.

In the meantime though, I'm going to keep with the general themes of spreading the love and going with the popular suggestions and say that Week nine is going to be The Ork Horde!

No suggestions at all this week? Come on guys, we've got to keep this going!

Remember, you can also add a nomination for an existing suggestion. THe more hits an idea has the more likely it'll get done.

Well, since it's been up there for a while. I'm going with Harlequins this week.

how about vs. grey knights?

Also, I may have said this earlier, but I think vs. terminators (including chaos terminators and grey knight terminators) would be a good idea.
