Default Why I'm Here

Hello Members,
The reason why I'm here is because I can't pass up a bargain. A friend at the local gaming store was getting out of the WH hobby and offered me his Tau army at a rediculously low price. I normally play my Dark Eldar (favorite) and occassionly my Black Templars and very rarely my Necrons. Tau have been very easy to defeat the few times I played against them, but I figured why not.

Anyway, here is the Tau army I now have. Tell me what you think. Plus I have a few questions.

Commander with Plasma Rifle ,Fusion Blaster, missile pod
his bodyguard: each with a plasma rifle and a flamer and one with a FB and the other Missile pod
one Ethereal

3 Crisis suits: Plasma Rifle, Fusion blaster and Multi Tracker
12 stealth suits (two sqauds of 6)

72 Fire warriors

3 Broadsides RG, SMS multi-tracker
3 Broadsides RG Plasma rifles Multi-tracker

What do you think of this army??
Some questions

1. Missing are the two Tau Skimmers. Are they worth it? How often do you use them?
2. The Commanders squad has Flamers . Is this a wise choice.
3. My friend didn't like drones - and didn't have any (shield or gun) He felt they would cause a squad to break easier. Is this true??
4. What is the best size for a fire warrior squad? He always went with 12.

5 All the weapons have been glued onto the Hard points. Is this normal? One Tau player had these tiny magnets on the weapon/system and on the model so he could flip flop.Any comments?
6. Lastly, no Kroot. He said they were worthless.

Thanks Ralph

Ork Punker, have you been smoking crack? On another thread just minutes ago you posted about how you wanted someone *to be banned because they were flaming, and yet here you are now posting your very own pointless bit of flaming trollery. I just hope the mods slap you hard enough to knock some sense into you.

OMFG, will a mod get rid of those posts and talk some sense into this conceited troll?

next on the agenda, that list was obviously made by someone with some problems.
-the broadsides are a very bad unit IMHO and I never use them after testing proved to me they are bad
-I arm my crisis as a rule with PR,MP,MT and IMHO those armaments are very wacked out, I think you should at least change the armaments to be consistent in the squad. flamers IMHO are bad unless playing cityfight. magnets are a very good idea but not everyone uses them, myself I glue as I dont have mags
-the Tau skimmers are very essential and would probabaly be a good buy ;D
-the FW would probably do better with a devilfish for more mobility
-contrary to your freinds beleif kroot are actually very good.
-etherals unless playing 2000+pts are bad.


short version, fix the crisis armaments and get the tanks.
3. drones in their own squds are good in squds of FW they are bad (there are several topics on this for your reading)
4. 12 is the best, this is the accepted best size when playing 1000pts+
