If your basing your army on the Red Devils then take Drop Troop and Light Infantry doctrines because the Red Devils were paratroopers.

I'd say Light Infantry is better for special forces, representing the larger numbers of marksmen (snipers) and ability to infiltrate.

If you want a Steel Legion force, then go for it. They can do a lot of damage against Tau when used properly.

I would give your men carapace if you are facing Tau as they have alot of ap 5 weapons. My army has very little ordance but relys on soldiers.

If you get the heavy weapons box you can use the same tripod for the auto cannon and lascannon if you postion the two men at different distances. That saves money.

lots of hw squads, ,as well as properly applied special weapons would do well against the tau.
