Right now? I'm running Tau which is a welcome and fun change from MEQ for everyone at the club Smile

It's not suit spam either.

My fire warriors did me proud this evening killing lots of black templars; unfortunately that only brought them closer and the 2 or 3 left tore through me Sad

I've never bothered with tournaments before, but I decided to get involved with one this summer. I'm using it as motivation to finish buying and painting 1750 pts of Tau. I find them somewhat trickier to win with than my Dark Eldar though. I've got Craftworld Eldar stashed at home too, but they've barely been out since 4th Edition.

i know what you mean my nuns haven't come out since 4th, and my fantasy stuff has only come out once in the 6 1/2 years at my current posting. as for the tau it's a pain that they are still using a 4th ed codex whilst almost every other race has had a reincarnation and with the shift in 6th to more combat oriented game they are going to have to fill the current lack of a decent cc ability with something, (well without having to kill off an a'un to get prefered enemy)

Hi trev don't listen to the net talk if you put my guard list on the forums it gets slated even at tourneys people look at it and laugh right up to the point they have to play against it .

Net wisdom is some people's opinion that others have latched onto use the claws as a secondary assault unit if you don't have a wolf priest in there and a primary if you do

@Trev - I'm Jonathan. Sorry it's taken me do long to reply - I only just spotted the question!

Since my first post, 6th has happened, and turned my experience on its head. Tau have proffed massively with move-and-shoot pulse rifles and rail guns rock even more now. I placed 12= (out of 32) in the tournie I went to this summer, which I thought wasn't bad for a first-timer.

Since then I've moved back to Dark Eldar for the 750pt Round Robin at Sultan. I'm now finding them much harder to play with. I used to run a Webway Portal list, but I can't make it work any more because you can't assault from reserve. Overwatch batters my fragile assault units too. Currently I've had one abject loss, one close loss and one win - in that order, so hopefully I'm getting the hang of things now...

All that said though, I'm definitely not a win-at-any-cost player. I'd always rather collect and paint the models I like, then work out how to play with them instead of just having multiples of the "best" codex choices.
