Last Wednesday I came to the conclusion that I cant stand playing my Tau any more. I was teaching a friend how to play Tau. We were playing annihilation against a Thunder Wolf spam list and we played pretty well. My friend and I made few mistakes and we took advantage of the lack of experience that our opponents brought.
End game Them 5 Us 1. Wow we got stomped
Its not the loss that really bothers me so much. Its the lack of fun, the heart break and units just not working.
I have decided that I am going to give a stab at a Tau fandex or at least Tau fandex entries.
