An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind. Except for the last guy, who would have one eye, and everyone knows that in the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king!

I just figure if you want to keep playing this person, maybe don't deliberately antagonize her--it's a fairly simple problem to address.

I wouldn't say "I'm playing 150 Infantry," let her build her list, then pull out your tanks--that's flat out lying. I would say "build your list and show it to me before I show you which miniatures I've brought today." She cannot justifiably have a problem with that, so you should be in the clear as long as your minis aren't openly visible.

Haskanael if she basicly tailors her list to whatever you bring. even without knowing it in advance, I wish you good luck. I agree with Ntaw, emperors fist and skyhammer would be a nice split of strengths.

and yeah Tau are in the top of best armies.

for future reference I advice to avoid such opponents. sucks the fun out of the game. also sounds like she might not handle losing well. wich makes it even less fun.

That gets my vote. My BA assault elements combined with my Guard tanks has always worked out great for me. Drop Pod/Deep Strike units are typically high priority enough that your opponent will have a hell of a time deciding which element of your army needs to be shot down first, and if you focus your efforts you may just kill enough to come out ahead before Tau do what Tau do and shoot the crap out of your army.

Isn't that almost exactly what she does to you, waits to see what you have and then makes a list tailored specifically against it? Tau are a top-tier army from what I read about tournaments (which is basically nothing), if anything you should be the one who gets to see her list and then tailor to it.

No I have to play to get my store discount. I play every Saturday from 12-4 so games are going on and when people come in I explain the game to them, in hopes they buy things. I'm in a college town and most everyone is gone, so it's either play her or don't get the discount.

I'm thinking a CAD objective secured chimera list OR an Emperor's Fist and Skyhammer combintation.

She might never want to play again if I bring two list or three different lists and put them out depending on what she brings.

Sounds like an intense need to roll some dice man. Shame you have to face someone who sucks the fun out of it all by only playing hard counters to whatever their opponent brings.

I'd take stuff with Barrage and range, maybe with plasma Scions DSing against high priority targets. Either way I'd take a CAD for ObSec on those Vet Chimeras.

Oh man, do this. Take two lists that are polar opposites and straight up lie to her about which one you're going to field. She'll find out at deployment she's (potentially, Tau are still pretty good) boned and maybe will learn that all-comers lists are the way and the light.

I want a picture of her face when she realizes what's happening. I imagine it will be something like this:



Only better.

Good point. The problem is, I HAVE to play Saturday, so I have no choice if she wants to tailor her list. It sucks but no one else is available. I'm really thinking about bringing a couple different lists and flipping the script on her, tailor my list. If you were going to go up against Tau, using IG, what would you bring?

Why not show up with a list and not tell her what you're going to play, only the points level? In my gaming group we never share lists until we're about to deploy. If someone wants to use a Knight or D weapons out the ass they'll typically say it pre-game so that their opponent will stand a chance, but list tailoring as the game is starting? Forget that.

I'd say my thoughts on your list but it doesn't seem like it will make a difference against this opponent.

I like tanks. I have 3 of every variant I love them so much. Also, we can rent shelves at the store and she keeps her entire collection there, so no matter what I bring, she will just write a list to counter it.
