Versing Tau. As we speak.

HQ: lord with MoN. BBoS and a power sword in a landraider with 7 plague marines armed with 2 plasma guns.

TROOPS:

2x 10 cultists

5x plague marines with 2x melta guns

7x plaguemarines with 2x plasma guns

FAST:
Helldrake with baleflamer

HEAVY:
5x havocs 2x las 2x autocannons.

1 pred with lascannon on top

Landraider.

Sorry for no points in sitting here getting mopped.

His hammerhead has survived 7 lasscannon shots and 2 melta shots. It has 1 HP left. Please tell me I am one unlocky SOB and this shit will never happen again....I've lost my 5 plague marines and a squad of cultists. I've lost 2 havocs and my predator. He's lost about 12 fire warriors and 6 path finders. :/ getting tired of shit rolls against Tau. -.-

Chaos will find it difficult to out shoot tau. Another way to nullify a hammerhead it to get up close and personal. You lack any powerfist options making this more difficult.

Sound like you are having an unlucky game to be honest.

Unfortunately my tactic was to taunt him with two nasty las tanks and a havoc squad. Luckily I got forst turn and hit him with 5 las rounds. Unluckily I didnt pen or glance with any of them. My autocannon and helldrake managed 1 glance before melta bombs were able to finish it. It was too late by this stage. I have my plan for him. I need more fast attack but I lack the money to put it into motion haha. Better luck next time. I was 1 inch away from taking a 4 point objective. Therefore I lost 7-1 as opposed to 7-5. 1 damn inch....
