Well since it is your first list I'm sure everyone will let you off.
You shouldn't tool your list out towards a specific army mind you. Its not fun for the other player, and I'm sure you would hate it if someone tooled their army against you.

This is more of a value than a taboo. You shouldn't, not saying you can't

And on that note, This seems to be an alright list. The Callidus is a great choice to pop up and take out the elite or HQ crisis suits, and the Seraphim having the Inferno Pistols will totally help against the Hammerheads and Devilfish. another good choice. Not sure if the Sisters Repentia are a good choice for this army though, they Will footslog the whole time I'm assuming and will get horribly shot up on their way. Waaay too slow moving and soft a unit for Mech Tau. Replace them. Oh, and maybe take an Orbital strike. The Melta Torpedo to either mash the tanks up, or overkill the Crisis Suits.

All in all, with the exception of the SR, good list. If you hope to beat Mech Tau and not too many other armies.

I think you might have to re-read the rules for allies. Normally you can only take 1 HQ, 1 elites choice, 2 troops, and 1 fast Attack, from witch hunters/Demon hunters as allies, so your 3 seraphim squads are illegal.

their not illegal if my parent army is witch hunters right? thats why i bought 3

the reason im tooling it specifically against mech tau si b/c thats what my roommate plays and he has a nasty habit of always beating me. to im trying to write up a list to combat him effectively

i get what your saying about the Sisters Repentia, i brought them for their Eviscerator hits, but they would be fairly useless unless i make them more mobile

If your parent list is Witchhunters, then your Purgation squads are illegal. Heavy Support units may not be selected when using Daemonhunters as allies.

On the repentia, they require a bit of thinking to use right because of their delicious special rules and such... you might try getting a rhino or chimera in the list, then have the repentia run behind/beside it so that it blocks the repentia's LoS until they get to where you want them to engage something. Also, it's kinda pointless to give the Priest a ccw and an evicerator... the evicerator is two-handed, so he can only attack with that or the ccw (which sort of defeats the purpose of having the evicerator); might be better to give him a bolt pistol instead of the ccw.
