Guard vs Tau

Had a quick game with a friend of mine who plays guard. It was a very interesting game. On my side was a shas'o commander three units of fire warriros (6 man teams) pathfinders (6 of them) with obligatory devil fish and two three man stealth squads.

 fighting for the imperium there was a melta vet squad in chimera a plasma command squad on foot some ratlings infiltrating as well as a flamer squad plus gunnery sergant harker (heavy bolter assualt weapon anyone ?) and some scout sentinels and some armoured sentinels and of course guardsman marbo.

The guard player went first and infiltrated the ratlings into a massive ruin and harkers squad infiltrated right near my infiltrating stealth suits wiping them out in the first turn, In my turn i marker lighted harkers squad and used firewarriors to rapid fire the whole squad to death. A quick and bloody start to the game.

The sentinels blew up the devil fish .. luckily i had forgotten to embark my fire warriors on to it lol the crater is where it once stood well...hovered .
The squad was standing near the fish when it went boom thou and took a few casualties then a few more to the other sentinel squad and then ran away.

The guardsmens command squad kept firing their plasma at stuff through the ground floor windows of this ruin i made them run away but they rallied the next turn.

My stealth suits outflanked perfectly but forgot how to shoot and only damaged one scout sentinel slightly ..eek so they assualted away with their jet packs but got caught up to and charged eventually losing combat and fleeing off the board.

My surviving guys moved into cover marbo came in deciding to wait to attack till his following turn but my commander insta killed him with fusion blaster and missile wounds.

 In other news around this time my second fire warrior squad out of three kept getting whittled down but making leadership every time I think the shas'ui got shot nine times at least. My pathfinders broke cover losing a few guys to plasma fire and the ratlings crack shooting but stood fast gunning down some of the command squad making them flee off the board !

My commander joined the fire warrior squad in the building for protection as the melta vets closed in on him in their transport just itching to insta kill the ish outta him but he didn't die thanks to the meat shields and in return He wrecked two armoured sentinels But was assualted by the last one. This is where i gave up the game and forfeited as i only had 3 pathfinders and my crisis suit commander who at strength five could not do any damage to the front armour of a armoured sentinel ( you always use a walkers front armour value in cc)
Alll in all i deployed badly played badly got beat down and worked by a guard army but i did kill a few units so i felt pretty good about the game plus... it was fun ! :D
