How to counter the "Unbeatable" Tau?

A lot of people are getting up in arms about the Tau and how broken they are. Now don’t get me wrong they are probably the most competitive codex we have seen since Necrons and Grey Knights. But never fear as good as the codex is, I don’t see it as broken or "unplayable" it’s just a great counter to the current Meta, and has that scary newness factor to it. So first we have to establish what they do well to work out how we need to play against them.

So what are the Tau strengths?

The Wonderful World of Fluff (Part 1)


Good Morrow good followers of Death or Glory, where we have a newseries all about fluff. Whether this is a new or old concept for you, or even just the motivation you need to take your army to the next level.

On another note, one not utterly disimilar; not only would this be the beggining of a new series here or Death or Glory, but also a new writer. My name is Ads and it is my pleasure to be writing for you from here in Germany, however my home town is the murky town of croydon in south london.

Death or Glory Episode 14

Welcome to the much delayed podcast! (curse weddings and tournaments!)

This time myself and Rich discuss our tournament and the descisions we've made on it.

We've also made a tournament list for Darran Gwynne!

Dark Mechanicus (Painting Update)

Hi all ive got my ass back into gear and done some more painting this week. After last week’s post I had a focus to work on the big unit of Slaanesh CSM's I had talked about. I wanted to give them the Slaanesh look but also not ruin my overall army look or theme.

Dark Eldar: Mathhammer Part 1

Dark Eldar: Mathhammer Part 1

So with the introduction of the Tau Empire, I was looking at moving back to a pure Dark Eldar army. The tricksy tricks of eldrad don’t provide a solution to tau whose rate of fire can only be combatted with…. Rate of fire and possibly speed. The question I now have facing me is well….. what should the make up of dark light and splinter weaponry be? Well the answer may lie in a bit of Mathhammer!

Dark Mechanicus (Chaos Marines Troop Review Part 1)

Hi guys this week I will be running through the normal Troops section of the chaos codex and how I see them being used.

Chaos Space Marines

At 13 pts each they look like a great deal on paper compared with their more expensive imperial counterparts however there are several reasons for this. The main being they don’t have ATSKNF which is a big deal. The other reasons are they can’t combat squad so this reduces flexibility in scoring and kill point missions, and they don’t have combat tactics.

Dark Eldar: Nemesis - Tau

Dark Eldar: Nemesis - Tau

I’m going to take a bit of a different approach to nemesis than my previous articles. Perhaps it’s time to tell you how id face an opponent and not just say how good or bad we are against them! Our Subject is Tau, the new kids on the block and the new thing in the internet. The normal discussion is….. How many Str 7 shots did you fit in? I Have 80….

Scary but are we, Dark Eldar, scared? Well let’s have a look!

Dark Mechanicus (Chaos Marine Special Characters + Hobby Update)

So last time I talked about Chaos Marine HQ's but you can’t finish looking at HQ options without looking at some of the big boys with a back story. To start with I think most of the Chaos Special Characters are well pointed none stupidly over pointed and none obviously under pointed like we have seen in a few of the 5th ed books Cough.." Coteaz "

So let’s get on with it.

Abaddon The Despoiler
He is the official boss man of this codex, weighing in at more points than a land raider you would expect him to be good.  

First of all let’s look at the hitting power he has. He has the option of two weapons to use, The Talon of Horus an AP3, reroll to wound, 2x strength lightning claw. Or His Daemon sword that gives him an extra d6 attacks +1 strength and an AP of 2, this all comes in with a stat line including WS 7 and I 6.
