Default 1500pt Tau

Hey all!

I've been trying to build a fun and successful tau list for a while, and thought i might as well post here to get some help from the experts. My comments on each thing I chose are below the choice.

I don't have my codex on me, so the points may be off a bit.

HQ : Missle Pod
- Hard-wired Multi-tracker
- Plasma Rifle
- Targeting Array
Total: 97

Elite : 2 Shas'Ui
-Burst Cannon
-Missile Pod
-Multi-Tracker
Total: 100

Elite : 2 Shas'Ui
-Burst Cannon
-Missile Pod
-Multi-Tracker
Total: 100

Troops: 10 Firewarriors
Total: 115

Troops: 10 Firewarriors
Total: 115

Troops: 10 Firewarriors
Total: 115

Troops: 10 Kroot warriors
Total: 70

Troops: 10 Kroot warriors
Total: 70

Troops: 10 Kroot warriors
Total: 70

Fast Attack : 8 Pathfinders
-3 Rail Rifles
-Devilfish
-Multi-Tracker
-Decoy Launchers
-SMS
-2 Seeker Missiles
Total: 261

Fast Attack: 8 drones
Total: 80

Heavy Support : 1 Hammerhead
-Railgun
-SMS
-Multi-Tracker
-Decoy Launchers
Total: 175

Heavy Support : 1 Hammerhead
-Railgun
-SMS
-Multi-Tracker
-Decoy Launchers
Total: 175

TOTAL: 1500

The army does seem a bit copy and paste, but that's the way I like it. It has 6 troops choices, 2 elite choices, 2 heavy support choices, 2 fast attack choices and a HQ choice.

It is friendly with comp points, but hits pretty hard. Plenty of troops, enough railheads, and I think enough anti tank.

Most armies around here are not MEq, and not very cheesy. Any suggestions would be fantastic.

Points are off a little, but an ok list.

Couple of things I would change:

Move the burst cannon off of the crisis suits. These suits are one of the few places you can get reasonably effective MEQ eliminator weapons. Put a plasma rifle there instead. Little more expensive, but a far better Suit/Weapon combination IMHO.

You have 2 seeker missiles on your fish, not a bad addition, but I generally will either load up on missiles, or leave them out entirely. Personal preference is all that that is though.

MMM...rail rifles...

2 AT guns with a plethora of light vehicle weaponry. I might opt for one more heavy gun - say a fusion blaster.
