Default So I tried making my very first own 1k Tau stealtharmy

So this is what I came up with

2 sniper drones -
1 Sky Ray - =295



Stealth shasui x4 -
Teamleader - =165


Firewarrior x10 -
Teamleader -

Firewarrior x10 -
Teamleader - =200

Crisis Command Shas'o -
cyclic ion -
TL Missile pod -
multi tracker - =88


Bodyguard crisis x2 -
TL Plasma -
Missile Pod -
Multi Tracker - =134

Sum = 967

I was aiming for a fast moving stealthed army with the ability to strike deep with their teamleads markerlights.
I've chatted with a friend and we both know firewarriors die fast. But I hope they will pull it through to make use of the ML, otherwise it'll be nothing more than a expensive pleasure at the beginning of the fight.
Post and comments, but if you wan't to make a long post with lots of abrevations please consider I will ask lots of questions after since I am completely new to warhammer and it's ruleset, I know I got 33 points to fill in the army, so I'm up for suggestions on items or anything else to fit in, maybe another stealthsuit? and a Fusionblaster for their TL?

In regards to this unit -

Crisis Command Shas'o - 75
cyclic ion - 15
TL Missile pod - 18
multi tracker - 5 =88

it seems a waste to twin link the missle pod with a guy that hits on a 2+
wouldn't it be better to use a third wpn and make your Cmdr a more vesatile asset ???
Also ditch the bodyguards and turn them into an elite choice,your cmdr has a close in wpn so you want to make use of his independant character(IC) status
if he has the bodyguard he loses that.

So how about a cyclic ion, missile pod and a flamer then? flamer being sort of close range and more fitting than a plasma?

Depends on who or what you are fighting against... you dont want to get so close just to use a flamer that would be costly for you.
perhaps a Burst cannon if you face guard or nids,or perhaps a fusion blaster or plasma if you fight marines or tank heavy armies.
if you lost your skyray to lucky shooting you have no other dedicated anti armor wpns...
perhaps the fusion blaster might be a good choice ???

Well so far, my friends play, Chaos, SM, Tau, Necron and Tyranid.
So that's what I'm up against.

if I switch out the skyray with a hammerhead with rail, smart missiles and a multi-tracker I end up 1002 points, is it legal to have two points over the cap?
EDIT:

New config I made just this morning, works alot better when it's not 5am and you're dead-tired

2 sniper drones -
Hammer head with - =330
Rail and Smart missile


Stealth shasui x5 -
Teamleader -
2 fusion blasts - =199

Firewarrior x10 -
Teamleader -

Firewarrior x10 -
Teamleader - =200

Crisis Command Shas'el -
TL Fusion blast -
Missile Pod -
multi tracker - =110


Bodyguard crisis x2 -
TL Plasma -
Missile Pod -
Multi Tracker - =164

Sum= 1003

yes, you can run 5 points either way eg 995 or 1005pts

You should also edit out the individual costs as its not allowed it violates a forum rule.
Also your fire warriors cost is wrong... i gather your going for 10 warriors,a shas'ui and marker light .... ???
it would cost you 130pts a squad not 100 :P so your over by 60pts in your total
i think your costing your F/warriors as if they were kroot.

As to your command squad....
i still think keeping the H.Q. as a lone unit works better.
but thats your choice...
Your going to have to lose 60pts from somewhere if you keep the F/w squads at max ?

ugh >_<
I keep forgetting things.

Yeah, Saw the problem with the FWs, so I cut one off from each time and also removed a stealth suit.
All the people I've talked to say having bodyguards for the hq is better with pointcost and defensive abilities.
