Hi mate, it might be best to let us know the entire composition of your forces before we can start discussing tactics- how many points do you have? Any tanks or sentinels? Things like that.

However, as a Tau player first and foremost i would advise you to renounce the Imperial creed and side with us in the name of the greater good , aotherwise things could get nasty...

Okay. Drop all of your doctrines, and get more troops. The more the merrier. Then, get some mortars, as Tau have a hard time dealing with indirect weapons. What kind of Tau do you normally face and how big is the area you play on?

Types of Tau:

Static: Lots of fire warriors and kroot, with broadsides. A few crisis suits hide out on the edges

Mech: Hammerheads and fire warriors mounted in devil fishes, crisis suits in support. Nothing that can't move 12" a turn.

Hybrid: some of both, if so specify the degree.

SIGAFH with some indirect fire is probably the best against any of them. You wont be abel to assault mech too well, and hybrid will be difficult as well. Static you can outshoot if you take a lot of heavy bolters and a lot of infantry. Against mech take lots of autocannons and missile launchers.
