1850 list - First army list with the new codex!
So I lost my last tau codex to a sticky fingered n00b at a tournament about a year or so ago, and as such I've had my Tau shelved for a while. Now with a recent revival into large scale Suit conversions I've undertaken, I find myself wanting to play my tau a bit more, and have poured over the codex to learn the changes my army has undergone.
I'd first like to start with my available options this way if you do have a suggestion you can go through what models I have (as I will likely not be buying anything for a bit) and make some suggestions!
What I own:
3 X firewarrior squads.
maybe 8 or so Kroot -_o
9 Crisis suits (2 in the process of conversion)
Same suits as above
5 Stealth Suits, oldschool metal ones. 1 with fusion blaster
I have *some* pathfinders, maybe 2 with rail rifles, and four extra Firewarriors I was converting...so that would give me around 6ish Pathfinders.
I could likely piece together 12+ Gun drones
2 Broadsides, one with Plasma one with SMS
Transports: I have 4 Devilfish
So with that listed off now I'll propose the List I made first. one note I'll make is that I'm trying to field a "fluffy"-ish urban army, somewhat close ranged, designed for a cities of death type enviroment. (radically different than all other Tau at my LGS)
Shas'el : Flamer, Burst cannon, Vectored Thrusters, Failsafe, Iridum armor, bonding knife, HW MT, Stim injector.
Shas'o : CIB, Plasma rifle, Drone controller with 2 shield drones, HW MT, HW TL, TA, bonding.
-Bodyguard: 2 suits, Fusion blaster, Missile Pod, TA, HWMT, HWTL
XV-8 Team: Shas'vre, bonding, fusion blaster, Missile pod, MT, Team leader has TA, HWMT
Stealth Team (4 man unit) Shas'vre, bonding, HW drone with marker drones, Marker light, HWTL, and Fusion blaster.
Fire warrior teams (12 models): Shas'ui, bonding, HW TL on leader, Marker light
(3 units of these)
-Devilfish transport: SMS, TA, MT, TL, D-Pod, Decoy Launchers, and 2 seeker missiles.
(3 of these for the FW squads)
Skyray Missle defense platform: Burst cannons, TA, MT, D-pod
Broadside (Stalker pattern as I call him): Shas'vre. twin plasma, bonding, advanced stab system, HW drone with 2X sheild drones, HW MT.
“If I were a proper brother-captain, I would know the prayer we are supposed to say. But I think you all know what we have to do. We do not know what our chances of survival are, so we fight as if they were zero. We do not know what we are facing, so we fight as if it was the dark gods themselves. No one will remember us now and we may never be buried beneath Titan, so we will build our own memorial here. The Chapter might lose us and the Imperium might never know we existed, but the Enemy - the Enemy will know. The Enemy will remember." - Acting Brother-Capitan Alric of the Grey Knights.
