you seem to have a fairly kick ass force at your disposal.

you seem to be going for a long range force. are your fire warriors armed with rifles or carbines.

For a ranged force your gonna need some forward troops to get in the way of enemy fire as well as draw it towards them.

Try buying and using a couple of kroot or vespid for this. if used corectly, kroot can wipe out small scout units or assualt heavy weapon teams. Vespid culd be used in the same way but may also add to you range of attacks in the shooting phase.

put the list up in the Tau board, you'll get alot more feedback . welcome and enjoy the forums.
I love looking back to yesterday, to see how we performed.
Then, looking to today, and seeing how we've improved.

Unfortunately, looking back to the things posted here, I realised I can now do much better :3
