3-0 Red Corsairs with BTS, Blitz and T&H.

I was worried when it looked like my drop wouldn't catch must. I tried to use up some of the Tau's activations before the retinues came down by stalling with the Helltalons and engaging on the far left with the THawks. That went well, but it was Matt's failed activation rolls that really helped me the most.

cool report got lost a little with the lists and what was happening.

hope you gave him some tips for next game. could have garrisoned the FW and the path finders on overwatch on the blitz to creat a decent bubble along with keeping the skyrays in the centre or even garrisoned the broadsides on overwatch and played a defensive game turn 1. Then counted turn 2 with coordinate tetras creating crossfire for the FW and pathfinders.

Edit i wrote some dumb things :P

This was the list I took. (ignore my note in blue)
Image

Dave totally smashed my ass. He quickly target my right flank. Then broken as many formations possible. With those broken formations and the six that failed to activate I had 5 or so detachments that tried to do more than lay a blast marker. Turn one was FUBAR.

The endless shit I did wrong.
To help Dave out, I screwed my myself in the deployment. The skyway's AA bubble covered 10-15cm off board. Continuing down that path I stuck my BTS outside of this bubble and far out on the right flank.

I choose to engage the air drop with mech FW, swinging around for the crossfire, only to have the LOS/LOF blocked by his Thawk. Those FWs were wiped out next turn.

At some point I forgot which detachment was his BTS and went after a different detachment, his right flank drop podded detachment. With his BTS broken and trying to hide, another wonderful display of the day's tactics!

The only part of the plan that worked out was the scouts. I had 5 detachments with the scout ability. Those provided a huge area of denial for the air drop with ML coverage on my entire frontage.

Another day with some highly motivated Tau would put up a better showing.
