A while ago I wrote up a quick Farsight list. It's not perfect but it looks neat.
One change that needs to be made to it though is to give one of the bodyguards a failsafe device. Anyways here's the list:

O'shovah 170
7 Shas'vre Bodyguards
Bodyguard 1 - Cyclic Ion blaster, target array, drone controller w/ 2 shield drones
Bodyguard 2 - Twin-linked plasma rifles, drone controller w/ 2 shield drones
Bodyguard 3 - Twin-linked plasma rifles, drone controller w/ 2 shield drones
Bodyguard 4 - Twin-linked flamers, shield generator
Bodyguard 5 - Twin-linked missile pod, target lock
Bodyguard 6 - Twin-linked missile pod, target lock
Bodyguard 7 - Twin fusion guns, target lock
7 Bodyguards: 515

3 Crisis battle suits
Shas'vre team leader - targeting array, missile pod, plasma rifle, hard-wired multi tracker
Suit 1 - twin-linked missile pod, flamer
Suit 2 - twin-linked missile pod, flamer
Total: 176

3 Crisis suits
Shas'vre team leader - Airbursting fragmentation launcher, burst cannon, positional relay, hard wired multi tracker, hard wired drone controller and 2 sheild drones
Suit 1 - Burst cannon, missile pod, multi tracker
Suit 1 - Burst cannon, missile pod, multi tracker
Total: 213

3 Crisis suits
Shas'vre tream leader - Plasma rifle, fusion blaser, target array, hard wired multi-tracker, hard wired drone controller w/ 1 shield drone
Suit 1 - Twin-linked fusion guns, drone controller w/ 2 shield drones
Suit 1 - Twin-linked fusion guns, drone controller w/ 2 shield drones
243

8 Fire warriors w/ pulse rifles, shas'ui w/ bonding knife
90

8 Fire warriors w/ pulse rifles, shas'ui w/ bonding knife
90

Total: 1497 Points

Every suit unit has a fairly specific function.

O'Shovah's unit gets in close and tries to get into combat. It's got a lot of shield drones and some expendable suits to soak up casualties. It has a lot of varied firepower, but most of it can kill MEQ's with little trouble. What isn't directed at MEQ's has a target lock so they can go tank hunting.

Crisis unit 1
This unit hangs back to blast medium enemy tanks. Nuff said.

Crisis unit 2
This unit closes to within about 18" so all their weapons are in range. Their firepower (11 shots + the AFLTemplate) should be enough to wipe out or severly hurt a unit a turn.

Crisis unit 3
They deep strike in on turn two (aided by unit 2's positional relay) and blow up tanks or heavy infantry. They have a total of 5 shield drones making them a very resiliant unit with a lot of close range firepower.

Fire warrior squads.

They hide in cover and try to stay alive long enough to be a scoring units at the end of the game.
Really they're there because they have to be.

You're just using it as is? You're not changing it at all?

I guess I'll take that as a compliment, but if you get blasted apart by beakies don't blame me

Farsight Enclaves can indeed take special issue wargear.

I too fear it might be illegal because I don't think Farsight counts as the 1+ Fire caste commander.

However it would be simple enough to change free up 15 points to make a shas'vre into a shas'el.

As taken from the coded (which is on my lap) He may be used in Tau armies of at least 1,500 points as an HQ choice, So i think your able to use him but i`m not sure.

You can use him, but I think you still need to use a Tau commander, which is odd, but oh well...

the only beef i have with this army is that there arent any Stealths and the troops are pretty weak.
