So I'm replaying a game from last week, which I won for the first time against Tau. The player always tailors lists, never bringing the same thing. Last week she brought 7 meltas with a commander but deep struck on top of my tank and died during the mishap. She will have a lot of strength 10 and melta so I'm trying to play the objective game.

CAD
Lord Commissar
2 x veterans
Wyvern


Emperor’s Blade Assault Company
CCS- Chimera, Plasmagun
3 x Vets, Chimera
Hellhound


Emperor’s Fist Armoured Company
Pask Punisher, heavy bolter sponsons (still playing this until it is confirmed I cannot)

Exterminator
2 x Engineers, 2 x servitors each
Demolisher
Executioner
Executioner


I know it's a lot of vanilla troops but I want to wrap the tanks with the two vet squads to stop deep striking, if possible. My other option would be dropping the CAD and giving the vets in chimeras special weapons. I also thought about bringing a DKOK assault company with the endless troops, as I play DKOK just not the rules.


I am also, yesterday and today, finally gluing a skyhammer annihilation force, but was warned if I bring it she would bring some crazy formation that would table me turn 1. I don't like threats but I have a deal with the store owner if I play a game between 12-4PM on Saturday's I get 25% off my GW purchases. He believes people in the store, leads to more people coming into the store, so I have to play her.


I'm working on a white scars army, but it need the discount to buy the models, so I have to keep playing games I don't want to to get a competitive army, for once.


Any thoughts would be helpful!

Why not deny her targets, and show up with a thousand flashlig.... lasguns, and no tanks for her to melta?
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.

Why not show up with a list and not tell her what you're going to play, only the points level?
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?

Sounds like an intense need to roll some dice man.
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.
