So to everyone who went to the gt having played your heats what changes would you have made to your list if say your mad scientiest uncle, created a time machine and you decided to back and make changes....rather than getting a winning lotto ticket....u sad bastard.

Would you change a bit, or maybe take a different army entirely.

TBH i think my list played perfectly. The only thing i might consider changing is the Dakkafex for a pair of biovores (and using the spare points to make the warriors WS5).

Dakkafex was handy (S6 massed shots was nice) but maybe 2 bio-acid shells raining down might prove handier. But then it does rely on the dice more.

Its a tough one as you always look to improve but sometimes you have to just stop as really your not gaining anything.

Wouldnt change my list. Played it pretty much perfectly in my book. Draws were due to insanely bad luck and very good opponents.

On the other hand, i think ill be taking nids to the final just to be one of the minority rather than the flock that now play taudar.

I would of taken a harder h2h Librarian dropped a speeder and taken a second ven dread.

Basically the list i'm taking to the finals. I would of placed second easily if i'd grown a pair and gone for it against the Necrons.

My librarian hung back like an England striker and it all went pear shaped...

My army also played fairly perfectly. Luck was the only real reason I was served my only loss. The only thing that makes me want to tweak my army is the rising necron contingent. But I'm really at a loss to what i could change to be honest.

Im sort of happy with the army. It Mech tau but not the standard sort of list. I played hard, but attacking. I didn't hide the army then dash out. But i'll probably never take it again.

I would take different dice.

Also the scout bikers would be out - stupid idea, and the drop pod dread would go as well since it never achieved much. Actually I might drop the predators, get some more squads and go all infantry. I found that the tanks would occasionally be very good and occasionally be terrible, and I prefer consistency.

My terminators did ok so I think I might have more next time. However I found it was annoying for all of them to have fists and go last so more power weapons would be a plan. Assault cannons never managed to rend much so I think I'll replace them with reaper autocannons and add in some combi weapons of various types (ok, mostly plasma). I might have some close combat infantry so I can get rid of annoying stuff like hormagaunts after they charge in. Some khorne berzerkers maybe.

My librarian did relatively well but consistently failed to cast lash of submission, apparently because he didn't know how to. Probably my fault here so I'll remedy that, and maybe get somebody else who can do it as well.

So you'd change the whole list then :p

Like a few others I wouldn't change anything about my list. It played really well and my only loss was due to poor luck and me playing a bit thick. (Took a gamble trying to phase him out early but the dice decided it was not to be.)

I just need to play some more games against nids, chaos and the new orks.:)

someguy: your post doesn't quite make sense to me, what army did you take? you know chaos have reaper autocannons and Marines assault cannons yeah? So can't really change unless you mean army. Same kinda with PW vs PF with standard marines your stuck with the fists

Same army, just play it better. My loss against The General I don't think I could have done that much different about but looking back I made major errors in all of my games on day 3 that cost me 2 of them (there's 3 things I did in the last game that were utterly utterly stupid and cost me the win) and I only just scraped a win in the other one.

I'd get a refund. Failing that I'd take Mech Eldar but using solely Tau models so that I could be as lame as possible, :fuck:

Ok, I'll stop now.
