Default Tau Mobile Infantry list (1500pts)

Ok so here's a Tau army I want to make, which I'll probably have to modify in a few months when the new codex comes out, but that's ok. I started doing some work on it last night, 2/3 of my first squad painted, and my first devilfish put toghether, YAY! Anyways please offer any advice becuase I have no experience actually using these guys.

Shas'el (50) w/ twin-linked plasma-rifles (24), sheild generator (20)
94

Shas'el(50) w/ twin-linked fusion blasers (18), missile pod (14), hard-wired multi tracker (10)
92

5 Stealth suits w/ burst cannons (150)
150

12 Fire warriors (120) w/ 10 Pulse rifles, 2 pulse carbines, shas'ui (10)
130
Mounted in Devilfish (80), w/ decoy launchers (5)
Squad total: 215

12 Fire warriors (120) w/ 10 Pulse rifles, 2 pulse carbines, shas'ui (10)
130
Mounted in Devilfish (80), w/ decoy launchers (5)
Squad total: 215

12 Fire warriors (120) w/ 10 Pulse rifles, 2 pulse carbines, shas'ui (10)

Mounted in Devilfish (80), w/ decoy launchers (5)
Squad total: 215

8 Gundrones (96)

Hammerhead (90) w/ rail gun (50), 2 burst cannons (10), multi-tracker (10), decoy launchers (5)
165

Hammerhead (90) w/ rail gun (50), 2 burst cannons (10), multi-tracker (10) decoy launchers (5)
165

Total Points: 1503


What do people think? Basically the army relies no not letting the enemy catch them while staying mobile and keeping up massed fire power. Very interesting to play hopefully.

Edit: OOPS! I acidentally wrote Shas'vre instead of Shas'el intially :-[ My bad. Anyways, hope that clears up some confusion!

Alright first off where is your HQ??? You must have at least one HQ, be it an etherial, shas'el or shas'o. I see nothing higher than shas'vre in your list. You must take 1 HQ and 2 Troops in all games higher than patrol (400 points).

Also 12 man mounted squads are not too effective. It is hard to pile them all out the hatches for something like FoF. I would cut up the Firewarrior squads abit to have 4 smaller units, drop a gun drone squad and add a 6th man to the stealth team.

Also the targeting array and multi tracker are actually good things to have on the DF. It makes it a very fast rather accurate fire support to your Firewarriors in a pinch and 18 str 5 shots at BS 4 throughout the game isnt bad to make the transport somewhat usefull.

I concur.
more stealth suits(well one more) and honesly am I the only one who finds two twin linked(bs2 I know) pining shots useful in a stealth squad. hard wire a drone control and get two gunns in that unit.

maybe 8 or 10 man squads of fire warriors.

also target locks on the railheads is a pretty neat trick. theres alot of times when you wont be firing the burst cannon cause your aiming the blasta at a tank. just a thought.

Your gonna run your boss's with the drones arnt you? I love it. I do that from time to time myself.

nice quickdrop hunter Cadre. I like the feel of this army.
