How many Marker Lights do you use in your army?
 
I would've made this a poll if I knew how!
So, in say a 500 point game, 1000 point game and 2000 point game, how many Marker Lights do you load up on?

Having not made Tau lists in a while, this is hard to remeber but up to point values of 1500, the simple answer is "none" - they didn't fit my playstyle, and Pathfinders are pricey. Upgrading to 1750 or 2000, though, in go a full pathfinder squad, making 8 lights.

at 500p, none.
I tried, but since I don't use pf, adding ML to my FW squad or Stealth, is just to expensive.
I would like to, really.
Maybe with the new marker drones? I like drones.

500 pts : None so far
1000pts : 2 to 6
1500pts: 6 to 9

At 1500, I have 2-3.

I always bring 2 Tetras, and sometimes I bring Gue'vesa with a ML upgrade.

500: 0 (unless you use Shas'ui fire warirors (which I never use), you won't have any)

1000: 0 (see above)

2000: 8 (8 Pathfinders will give you enough markerlights)

Note that IF the Tetra comes legal, we may see more Markerlights in 1000 points, and maybe 500.

1750pt = 5 PF w/'ui upgrade.

Below = 0

Currently;
500: 0
1000: 0
1500: 4-6
2000: 6+

After new codex
500: 0
1000: 4
1500: 8-10
2000: 10+

While I agree on liking the Marker Drones, I will have a hard time justifying more than two in an army list. At 30pts each, they are a very pricey option.

As for the Tetras, the aren't going to be in the new codex.

The only FW models to make the cut are the Piranha and Sky Ray.

If the SKy Ray has a markerlight, then I like it. But why they didn't take the ultracool Tetras instead was a terrible decision.

I have 3 by the way. One in each of my three Gue'vesa units. I figure if they help wipe out one tank they're paid for!
