Default TAU 1000 points Friendly [mostly +3 sv armies] (Help Needed)

Need help rating these two lists:

List One:
Shas'el
PR, MP, MT 85

Stealth Suits x 4 120

Fire Warriors 11
Sushi x 1 130

Fire Warriors 11
Sushi x 1 130

Pathfinders x 7
3 x RailRifles
1x Sushi
DF Transport DL 221

Hammerhead
Railgun TA, MT BC DL 165

I am hoping this list will be able to take on all comers, especially +3 sv armies such as Necrons, Marines, Black Templars.

Will add my other variations soon.

Please feel free to post any comments.

Sorry was at work and could not post second list:

List two:
Shas'el
PR, MP, MT 85

Crisis PR, MP, MT 65

Crisis PR, MP, MT 65

Stealth Suits x 4 120

Fire Warriors x11
Sushi x1
Mounted DF , DL 215

Fire Warriors x 11
sushi x 1 130

HammerHead Rail Gun
TA, MT, BC's, TL, DL 170

Broadside Suit x 2 150
TL Rail,MT, SMS

Total at 1000

I have a third list but it has some Gue'vesa'la but no SS, so I am may not use that one. I am asking those of you who have played a lot of games at 1000 to see if this list have any weaknesses. Where I play we don't use Deep Strike too often so I am not really afraid of that. I know most of you will want another HH but I just purchased one and still do not have it ready yet or it would be in. Which would make it two HH in a 1000.

Any comments or advice are more than welcome.

Just a question:

Can you find room for the Plasma Rifles on your Broadsides? Because they are still battlesuits, they can move and fire rapid fire weapons (the Plasma Rifle) as though they hadn't moved. That means in games where you're not facing many vehicles, you can take out vehicles first, then those 3+'ers second, with a little bit of mobility.

With SMS, if you move, you can't fire because it's a heavy weapon.

Just a thought.

I can change the FW sushi's to regular FW's, and now I have the points for both units. That is no problem But what I am asking to everyone is what would be the most effective unit. I am not too sure of this.

My plan was to use the BS's to have more AT fire power. If the BS's lived beyond taking out the Armor, then yes I could see the benefit.

Once I get my second HH going I would drop one or both BS's, because I believe the RailHeads would live longer, but I am not too sure if this is true in a 1000 point games, which is why I was asking comments on the list.

Yeah, it really all depends on what you face most often . Plasma BS's are pretty speciallized.

Between the 2 lists...I would have to choose the 1st one. Nobody expects to see 3 Rail Rifles on the feild in a 1000pts!

Susui? Sushi? I think that you meant Shas'ui dude! (re-read your posts and see!) ;D

ok one vote for List one.

Thanks A'u'nat
I was thinking pathfinders and 3 RR was too much for a 1000 point game.
Was joking really when I said, sushi, because these guys are my Red shirts which tend to die for the Greater Good.


So is that enough AT, so I don't need to add Seekers?

Actually, I would like to see some seekers in the list...keep the PF's but just remove the 3 RR's and swap them for a handful of seekers...usually 4 is enough...

I played List two but I modified it. I removed the SS and the DF and added some troops.
And added pathfinders with 3 x RR's. It worked too well. Destroyed most of the armor first turn.

Two BS's and RailHead took out there armor and made the troops walk, it was too much for them.

WT

I may take out one BS and look for some more points to add in a DF or take out the Pathfinder and use those 200 + points on something else.
