which do you think is better and why...
What can I say? I'm cool like that. :grin:Thats twice today Katie D that you have rained on my parade.
Of course. I don't believe for even one second that the Tau can't beat the Necrons. In the right player's hands, or with good enough dice (or terrible dice on the Necron's part) the Tau can certainly take the win. My point was that it's extremely difficult for the Tau to beat Necrons and any battle against a good Necron player is going to be an uphill struggle.Yes the tau can have some problems keeping the necrons down but the fact of the matter is that they can and that is were the fun is.
Honestly the only thing they have that scares me as a tau player is the wraiths.
Hard yes but not impossible. Any one army can beat any other army at the end of the day the game is decided on by two things.
2-a good player in control
Well this is a tricky question, I think it all comes down to what time of the day it is and what direction the wind is blowing in.:shok:This is what it boils down to in my opinion, can the Tau Hammerheads take out the Destroyers before the Destroyers take out the Hammerheads.
lol, no, I'm pretty sure it comes down to whether the Hammerhead has an ion cannon or not. I can't imagine a railgun being overly efficient at bringing down units of Destroyers (unless we're talking about Heavy Destroyers which can run in units of one).Well this is a tricky question, I think it all comes down to what time of the day it is and what direction the wind is blowing in.:shok:
Have to agree with that. I, playing T'au think that tau are better. vespid can be surprisingly effective but i guess it all boils down to necrons defeat tau, tau defeat evrything else.Against each other, Necrons are simply too resilient for Tau to cope with easily. My battles against the local Necrons player are legendary at our game store, but I have yet to do more than acheive a close draw. Some things that I've found to be effective are Broadsides and Kroot, since the main Necrons strategy tends to make their lives easier. However, it's usually Necrons thrashing Tau.
Now, in the over all game, I'd say that the Tau have more of an advantage. Most armies can't cope with their mobility or their sheer shootiness, and just about every other army out there has multiple ways to deny WBB rolls and armor saves.
I'd say that Necrons and Tau are on exact opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to the game, and both are probably best at what they do. However, when it comes down to a fight between the two of them, Necrons have the advantage.
