Ok so I'm in a 5k game and I'm in partner with a tau player. Tactically nids charge in and tau supplies cover fire. Sounds awesome keys hope it gies good

If you're going to do the straight on 'nid rush/charge, make sure you are aware of the Tao field of fire. The last thing you want to do is provide cover saves for the enemy by getting between the Tao rail guns and their targets. If you can you should consider outflanking with your 'stealers. Use a spore pod to drop your Zoans in behind their lines. Since there's no spore pod model you can use whatever you want to represent it (I use soda pop cans. They're about the right size and I get a tasty beverage during the battle). Just keeping your stealers in reserve will cause your opponent to bunch towards the middle. If he doesn't so much the better for you. If you're using Mawloks keep them on the board and Burrow turn one to cause some problems turn two, especially if your opponent does group in the middle. Pick a flank and charge down one side or the other of the battle field.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Don't run too far ahead of the tau. in 5k games some of their weapons will not reach the enemy on the first turns. I know the most important ones like railguns and sky-ray missiles will, but the pulse rifles can run out of range in big tables.

Also, is this 5k game a game where each side has 2.5k, or where both sides have 5k? Or maybe you are being misleading and you have 5k to spend on your nids. :?

Lol it was 5k per side. 2vs1 so bids and tau had 2500 each but I got a few extra points tau didn't need. It was good. We one but unfortunately I just played blocker for the mechs so rail guns can destroy everything else and I let hormagaunts, genes, and termagaunts tie up infantrys. After the armors went boom I corraled the remaining infantrys into railguns range. Not much glory for nids but a good team work considering our difference in combats.

Not much glory? Come on forest! There is no 'I' in 'TEAM'! :D

You'r 'nids were as vital to the success of the battle as you Tau allies were! (b~_^)b

Lol yes WE won. But as I said. All I did was play blocker. So the land raiders can't disembark close enough. I just assaulted, did no damage, went sideways did his turn. Then I swarmed it again. :P I don't have anything big enough to fight a land raider except my zoans which died turn 1.

I do not. My personal collection is very small. Mostly 2nd hand models given or sold at reduced value.
