500pts game against spice macaroons (I was tau)

My army was

  • 12x Firewarriors + Fireblade + 2 gun drones
  • 5x Firewarriors
  • 6x Pathfinders
  • 10x Kroot (w/ sniper rounds)
  • a hammerhead with submunition rounds

Enemy was

  • 10 spouse maroons with a sergeant and a rocket launcher
  • some more meereens with a heavy bolter
  • some more mormons with a melta gun and a sorcerer dude in a razorback

My initial plan was to infiltrate with the kroot with sniper rounds and try to assassinate his warlord but his warlord was in a tank so that didn't go well.

First turn didn't go amazing I shot at the the biggest group of maruns with the submunition shot but it scattered harmlessly away and I didn't kill many meeryns

But then next turn my fireblade unit was stationary (which means it gets an extra attack) and I used my warlord ability (got to reroll ones for all shots) and wiped out most of the biggest enemy squad and blew up the transport with my tank, though the squad inside all survived somehow

But then the minions got close enough to shoot back at me and the sorcerer started breathing fire at me and I started taking casualties and they blew up my tank with a melta gun

And the board was too small for me to be able to fall back and they were able to start assaulting me and as a tau army that's when things really fell apart

in the end the sorcerer ended up almost singlehandedly wiping out my big firewarrior unit with firebreath and then his staff in close combat

rip tau

Idk much about tau so I can't help much. Does the Submunition have AP3?

No it's a large blast ap4 I think. Only thing I had they could penetrate mirin armour was the tank main shot.
