Dustin, with the giftsforgeeks store resplendent and the battle table built, has thrown down the gauntlet again! I'm off to face his Tau again next week. After a long consideration, I've decided to go with 1500 points of Guard, rather than the genestealer cult army/Tyranid horde. There is bad blood there (well, a bloody guardsmens nose anyhow) and I intend to give the Tau a right proper pasting prior to the new codex coming out.
He might have an abundance of cover saves, but I've got my new tactica's in hand and a taste for blood. I also have some clever ideas on how to give the Tau a hard time with Guard.
