Default New user (sort of) my tau army! piiiics

I used to have an account here.. and well I cant remember it haha. Anyway I took some new pics of my old tau army which I still play with. They're alot of fun. I spend more time as a painter then a tactician but it's all good. This isn't the entire army, I just didn't want to dig them all out. I will be taking some full army pictures at my local gaming shop soon though.
Comments? Questions?

This one is my unofficial commander. The dual flamers count as one.

I thought it looked nifty

I tried to do some light sourcing so he looks mean

I dig the commander and his weapons. I also love the stealth suit. Look forward to seeing more of your work here.

Thank everyone for the very nice comments. ;D

Here's a bit on how I use some of the specifics.

The commander I like to either deep strike or move behind enemy lines. He's a "good" close-quarters fighter. With the fusion blaster he can take out pesky tanks or with the flamer he can dispose of droops then jet out of there.

The two dual-missle pod suits I use behind cover for the pop-and-shot. So far they have worked fantastic. They scoot around the battlefield popping off some missiles then getting back into cover.

I usually like to put my sniper team (edit) and broadsides in some sort of corridor. The drones attempt to pin and widdle them leaving them for the broadsides mercy, or lack there of. When the drones end up going down, I usually have the spotters marker light to help the broadsides.

I don't have pictures of my other two suits. I can't recall the official name of the configuration but they have a missle pod and a plasma rifle.

I really like to deep strike most of my army. My heavies lay down my base line of fire and my mobile troops run around under their cover.

This is what's supposed to happen bahahaha. Usually things go badly and I get womped, but hey, all in good fun.
