Maybe Sniper Drones and Rail Rifles would work. You deploy on the table, and marines hate Rail Weaponry:evil:
(plus it has the word \"rail\" in it, adding +2 to the coolness factorof your army).
Sors salutis/ Et virtutis/ Michi nunc contraria
Est affectus/ Et defectus/ Semper in angaria
Hac in hora/ Sine mora/ Corde pulsum Tangite
Quod per sortem/ Sternit fortem/ Mecum omnes plangite!
I have had the luck of playing the DA only once with my Tau, it was an objective mission, of course it was in the middle of the table, and by the end of turn 1, the ravenwing had secured the objective with their damn scout move. But I had some buildings nearby, so i piled all my Fire Warriors into the buildings. It worked, i shot down most of the bikes, and by the time the ol master of the ravenwing showed up, my crisis suits and my tanks did also. They, and the few surviving Kroot pushed forward, taking out most of the remainder of the bikes, although losing the Kroot. When the tanks had caused the bikes to fall back behind a building, one my fire warrior squads with 9 men left, came down. As i expected the bugger came around and assaulted me. My entire fire warrior team was wiped out, but it was worth it. I got them in range of both of the other teams. I took out all of the bikes in the zone. With a turn to go I had 2 Crisis suits a Hammerhead, and two squads of Fire Warriors. They had a squad of bikes an attack bike and the ol Master. On that turn I successfully secured the objective, and got the fire warriors in range for rapid fire, and I took out the Master of The Ravenwing, and the attack bike. At the end of the battle the Tau were victorious, and the Ravenwing had lost a great deal of bikes. (The Landspeeders were the first to get killed by the Hammerhead, and Crisis suits.)
