Default My first match with TAU vs Space Marines

Hi guys!

My first match, as a TAU player, is comming up.

I was lucky enough to buy a fairly cheap army of battlesuits. So my army is composed around battlesuits. So here it goes,

HQ = 132
Shas O' -75
Missile Pod -12
Plasma Rifle- 20
Shield generator-20
Hard wired multitracker -5

Elites 1 = 149
XV8 crisis suit team
Xv8 Shas'ui (team leader) - 30
Missile pod- 12
Plasma rifle- 20
Shield generator -20
Hardwired multitracker -5

Xv8 Shas'ui -25
Missile pod -12
Plasma rifle-20
Multitracker -5

Elites 2 = 149
XV8 crisis suit team
XV8 shas'ui (team leader) - 30
Missile Pod - 12
Plasma Rifle - 20
Shield generator - 20
Hard wired multitracker - 5

Xv8 Shas'ui -25
Missile pod -12
Plasma rifle-20
Multitracker -5

Troops 1 = 80
Fire Warrior team
5 Shas'la - 50
1 shas'ui - 20
Markerlight - 10

Troops 2 = 80
Fire Warrior team
5 Shas'la - 50
1 shas'ui - 20
Markerlight - 10

Troops 3 = 114
Kroot carnivore squad
12 Kroot - 84
5 Kroot hound - 30

Troops 4 = 114
Kroot carnivore squad
12 Kroot - 84
5 Kroot hound - 30

Heavy = 180
Xv88 Broadside battlesuit team
2 Shas'ui - 140
2 targetting array - 20

TOTAL = 998 POINTS!!!

It's going to be a custom mission with 3 objectives with some sort of urban terrain (looots of cover). No deepstrikes allowed. Don't know much about my opponents' play style. But my plan was to go for a hit and run kind of style on his flanks with the suits and take up the incoming main force with my kroots and broadsides. First time iv'e ever played with TAU and im really excited. So what do ya think? Does this force stand a chance?

The list isn't that bad
Its just lacking firepower.
Not enough suits imo :

Its 1000pts what are u bringing a shas'o for?
You could buy a 3rd crysis team or make 3 man teams by removing the 'O, team leaders and all Shield Generators.

Also I find that adding wounds to the unit in the form of attached gun/def drones is often a better buy then the SG. Though I wouln't recommend doing so in this case.

If you say their is lots of terrain to hide in you might want to field some Helios in place of a FK team...your call.
I fear the no-deepstrike rule also works against you when wanting to build a list around suits.

well thats my piece of advice

good luck !
