Myself I've always gone suit spam, but that's because I can't do piranha spam with farsight and I get bored with vehicles too easily.

suit spamming is sp easy to kill of though, a lot of the time they sacrifice 2 weapons in wargear to take the 4+ invul save, which is chil but what you have left is 1 to 2 shots a turn with them. the piranah list had like 5 shots each with fussion blasters so it was 25 shots a squad at BS4 S5 ap5

Err, when playing against someone that's been into the game for two months, doesn't know the rules for his army and is taking one of the least efficient lists possible I'd be hesitant to make a judgment about the army as a whole. Please, for your own sake, do not underestimate the Tau. They have one of the better books in the entire game right now but it happens to be extremely limited in that there are only a few good units.

alright, but i have yet to play a tau player who even challenged me a little bit. the closest game ive ever lost too tau was with a experimental Black Templar list with a lascannon spam list, but yea i still won that game by 200 points. every other game when i was runnning my Chaos army i have army killed tau by the 4th turn or sometimes 5th. i know what people all say is that i just havent played a good player but ive seen a lot of list, ive killed crisis suit spaming no problem ive killed broad side kroot spam ive just about fought them all. lash is the one thing Tau cant handle thats why its easy to defeat Tau. but yea i will agree until i play a decent Tau player i will just have to stick with my oppinion. but i understand Drake i cant base my oppinion of a whole army because i have only played 6 to 7 Tau players. but a couple of the guys have the money just not the skill i guess, even though i consider one of them to be the best i have seen.

By the way did you forget about the Blood Angels, Spacewolves, and lets not forget the Cheesiest codex of them all the Imperial Guard, ofcourse IG needed the better codex they have been bitched slapped around for a long time. by the way i highly doubt Tau have one of the better codexes of the game because how often do you see Tau winning Ardd Boys tourneys and what not.

I can proudly say that I never lost to Tau army. That most likely has to do with the caliber of players though, I am getting ready to go to a GW event soon at the battle bunker here in Texas. I'm gonna get killed lol.

Fear not the Psyker.

Time you enjoyed wasting is never wasted.
