So I said I would post the list as soon as i had the chance and Scott came through rather quickly. So here is the Tau list that kicked the puppies.

8 Fire Warriors 72

3 Farsight Enclaves XV8 Crisis Team: Bonding Knife Ritual; Crisis Shas'vre (plasma rifle; missile pod; vectored retro-thrusters; shield drone; shield drone); Crisis Shas'ui (missile pod; plasma rifle; vectored retro-thrusters); Crisis Shas'ui (missile pod; plasma rifle; vectored retro-thrusters) 208

2 XV88 Broadside Team: Bonding Knife Ritual; Broadside Shas'vre (advanced targeting system; shield drone; shield drone; twin-linked plasma rifles; seeker missile); Broadside Shas'ui (advanced targeting system; twin-linked plasma rifles; seeker missile) 198




And here are the puppies that got kicked.

Rune Priest 

6 man Blood Claws w/ Flamer; Wolf Guard Pack Leader w/ Power Sword; Rhino

2x 5 man Gray Hunters w/ Meltaguns

5 man Scout Squad w/ Camo Cloaks and Meltagun

4 man Wolf Gaurd Terminators w/ 2x Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields, 1x Dual Wolf Claws, 1x Assault Cannon and Power Fist

1 Vindicator w/ Siege Shield

1 Venerable Dreadnaught w/ Helfrost Cannon, Dread Fist w/ Heavy Flamer; Drop Pod w/ Deathwind Launcher and Locator Beacon



The last three of the options on my list were a rather miserable failure. My Terminators love to roll "1"s for Armor Saves. The Vindicator is a pie plate but I have never really done enough hits with it to cover its cost and the Dread was simply poorly deployed. I cannot complain about it since it was my fault. Bad deployment is bad deployment. 

On the other hand my Blood Claws and Rune Priest that accompanied them where rather awesome. They charged a unit of Crisis Suits and wiped them out and then followed up by charging the Broadsides and while they were decimated they did get the Rune Priest in place to charge and then rout them.
