Default Static? Hardly stationary

This is a dump from excel so the formatting is gone:

In this list I'm going against my own axium and giving grenades to the commando units in order to try something new. By placng both commando units in close proximity within terrain, I will attempt to save them for mid game movement in an effort to split enemy attention away from my main effort. Every effort they draw away allows more concentrated shooting in other places. What I really want is for them to last 2 turns in CC if possible, so hopefully we'll have some result on this trial.

Another tactic I will be trying is using the carbines as a mobile anti-CC reserve. Have them move to intercept CC enemy within terrain and thus allow the rifles to continue shooting rather than move and miss a turn of shooting.


Otherwise, it is static Tau with latteral manuver ability. Everything begins in or behind cover to deny first turn burndowns of xv88s etc. I plan on deploying heavily to one side (did this in first exp. game) and shifting once the enemy commits. I do sacrifice units, so no victory will be so onesided as to be unfun. Fun is, after all, my prime directive. I'll try to post pics and battlereports.

Also note the list is interum. I will be growing a second sniper team soon, and I'm also going to be monitoring the plethora of markerlights I have beeming all over and see if a reduction would matter. I'd like to have a DS piranha for late game quarter snatching.
