For the Greater Good!


I did it! I completed my 1,850 point tournament ready Tau list. I based all of the models with Martian Ironearth (Thanks for the help Jason!). The drones are marker drones for all seen drones. Turns out that drones are 7 bucks a piece from GW... so I think this counts as will be ok.

The list has proven to be pretty nasty in play, and I intend to take it for the entire run of this tournament season, with the exception of some local RTTs.

The link above is the information page for Warhammer tournaments at Arkham Games. There will be a season prize of about 1k. I am so excited for these events, and it is this exact reason that I completed this army.

If anyone else is interested, check out that page.

  1. Very good list. It should do fairly well. One thing that I am very glad about is Arkham doesn't have a meta so you don't know what you are going up against. The same can be said about Four Horsemen. Yes expect eldar but I don't think you can go anywhere without running into an eldar army. Can't wait to see this run at the tournament and good luck to you!

    1. The last time I went to Arkham for a tournament, I recall a LOT of gladius. I don't know if that has changed since the last event, but I definitely kept it in mind for my Tau. Daemons are another concern as well, but I don't think anyone is taking Daemons this go round, unless you ringer XD.
