Default 1500 Kroot/Tau Assault Force!

And now for something completely different:

HQ
Shas'el - Cyclic Ion Blaster, Missile Pod, Multi-Tracker, Targeting Array - 92

Elite
Crisis Suit - Fusion Blaster, Burst Cannon, Multi-Tracker - 50
Crisis Suit - Fusion Blaster, Burst Cannon, Multi-Tracker - 50

Troops
6 Fire Warriors - 5 Pulse Rifles, 1 Pulse Carbine - 60
10 Kroot + 12 Kroot Hounds - 142
10 Kroot + 12 Kroot Hounds - 142
10 Kroot + 12 Kroot Hounds - 142
10 Kroot + 12 Kroot Hounds - 142
Baggage Knarloc - 2 Kroot Goads - 45

Fast Attack
Pirahna - Fusion Blaster, Decoy Launchers, Targeting Array - 75
Pirahna - Fusion Blaster, Decoy Launchers, Targeting Array - 75

Heavy Support
3 x Sniper Drone Teams - 240
Greater Knarloc with Bolt Thrower - 70
2 Broadsides - Multi-Trackers, Team Leader, HW-Drone Controller + Shield Drone, HW-Target Lock, Bonding Knife - 175

Total: 1500pts

So that's 110 very angry Kroot and 2 Knarlocs heading full pelt for the enemy lines - who says Tau can't play aggressively if they want to? Backed up by adequate amounts of firepower of course...

Comments welcome - sound like an interesting way to play the list? Or an easy way to get oneself massacred ever game?

Kroot are more of a pillbox unit, and to use them in the way you suggest would no be an adequate use of their talents.also If you came across a firepower heavy army, how would the poor kroot cope with a 6+ [if that] armour save, and they are not tough enough to survive low strength ordinance blasts, and would spend the game hugging cover.

If you are going to assault with kroots, you need bigger squads. Way bigger squads.

And you need more fire warriors to give them fire support.

How about one unit with Pulse rifles that forms a fire base and one with pulse carbines that moves alongside the kroots firing as they go. That way, your kroots will draw less attention and have a greater chance of reaching the target alive.

And this a is a VERY un-tauish force. You are basicly going to use kroots as cannon-fodder and taus do not use cannon fodder. They send in kroots to assault, yes, but they make sure there are enough fire support along to suppress the enemy fire bases.

So I would not have more than one big kroot unit, with close support of Crisis suits and pulse carbine armed Shas´las, the rest is pure fire support.

Piranhas of course, very good, and give the commander of the supporting crisis suits the airburst fragmentation launcher... Artillery support is always nice.
