me n me armE
OK. I just received my MegaForce with extra Hammerhead spru from GW.
and Ebay just turned up SO the 3.5k pts are in the house ( but still in a box maybe ) BUT the army looks like :
Etheral + 8FireWarrior Bodyguard, SHas'vre, devilfish and Drone Ctrl+2 Shield. OR
Crisis : Shas'o, Hard wired Multi Track, TargetArray, FusionB, Plasma, + HardWired Drone ctrl with 2 shield drones. Bdyguard Missile+PLasma+TargetArray + HardWiredMultiTarget, HardWiredDroneController + 1 Sheild 1 Marker drone
(* if I take this then I take 2 stealth elite, if not 2 crisis elite, 1 stealth )
1 6 man stealth, 2 FusionB, TargetArrayA ( same again if no etheral )
1 3 man crisis ( Missile, Fusion or Missle, Plasma or Plasma, Fusion with TargetAarray, HardwiredMultiTrack and hard wired drone ctrl for ldr with 2 Shield )
Pirhana Squadron 3 BusrtCannon 2 Fusion, Targetarray and 5 off them !
Pathfinder ( 8 - 3 with Railgun, Shas'vre, fish etc )
3 Broadside ( 2 rail + Mis, 1 Rail + Plas , shasvre, Tarray droneC 2 shields )
1 Hammerhead ( Rail + Smart )
1 Skyray ( Seeker, Smart )
3 * 11+1 FW ( 8 - 4 rifle-carbine ) grenades etc
1 * 19+1 Kroot with shaper, upgrade and pulse rifle
I also have another Hammerhead, a sniper team, another broadside conversion, and a heavy gun drone squadron( 6 * tl Busrst can Drones ) and some 12+ reg gun drones
( i may have mentioned previously, I went tau bonkers with the plastic card )
i think Im going black n white on the scheme ( beter than plastic grey )
did I miss anything ?
are pirhana better BC or Fusion?
are stealth better BC or Fusion ? is a target array really worth it ?
does the etheral need a BG ? if not i got 12 more fw troops
whats the best heavy combo I can field ? against who ?
having more money than sense or time means i have 3.5k of tau and last played a game 8-10yrs ago ( marines v nids - roughly 2nd ed rules - won 1 lost 1 )
so, you vets can pull my shining path cadre apart with years of battlefield experience ?
I think Hybrid, but will depend upon enemy and pts limit. i think the heavy gun drones will help against hordes like Ork more than the skyray. i dont know how good vespid are - i gather you hit n run with them rahter than toe2toe
im confused re crisis suits and burst cannon/flamer combo's. again, i gues it depends on enemy and points limits.
I like the idea of shadowsun and a crisis shas'o HQ rather than etheral.( and it provides me with another 12 man fw team with the shield drones going to elite stealth teams A and B. - more guidance please - should I limit the fusion guns on stealth teams?

Re: me n me armE
Just as a note you cant have shadowsun AND an ethereal as the crisis commander is a 1+ choice (you have to take one)
-Hope this helps and I'm sure others will post additional help soon
