HI , i'm pretty new to TAU also in the process of making them my new army for 40k. Im not a stranger to 40k, i've been a space marine player for about 2-3 years and hve decided to become a Tau player.

I have the codex and have written up a basic 500pt army list, i was wondering if some of you guys could give me some feedback on this army-list and maybe some help?

HQ - Shas'el = Plasma rifle + missle pod , Multi-tracker.
Body guard = Burst cannon + plasma rifle , 2 x gundrones
-------------------------> (HQ comes to 173 points)

Troops - 10 fire warriors - shas'ui with 2 gundrones
- 11 kroot + 4 hounds
------------------------> (troops come to 233 points)

Broadside - twin rail rifle, SMS , 2 gundrones

comes to a grabd total of ... 498 points

Hullo system, I'm Magnus the Red, local Thousand Sons fanatic and ex-tau player.
It seems to me that you ave a massive HQ with almost no backup, and also a broadside. Broadsides are pointless in small games because the enemyy won't or cant bring any vehicles worth krumping. Id say get yourself another squad of FWs and maybe an Etherial, and dump the BSide and HQ.

Yeah, I play WoW. So sue me.

I think you should put him in a f.w. squad.( or at least that's what I do.)
Or give him a couple drones.

Oh, almost forgot ;D
