Default Calling All Commanders!

Due to my inconvenient positioning in this in fanate universe the good missionaries of games workshop are taking there time in delivering my tau codex. So i ask of you good people to post the configs of your tau commanders. YES! A Chance to show off! This will result in me having more of an understanding of what i wish to do with my newly purchased XV8.

Thanks.

I will delete any post containing a commander's stats. Such information is copywrite.

Considering the Tau's massive lack of options, listing their configs will be sufficient.

As a commander, simple is the way to go. Shas'el fireknife.

He's versatile and pretty cheap. He doesn't hog the armory either... my commander represents what I would personally take for the battlefield. I see myself more as a leader and less of a fighter.

its been traditional now for my shas O to carry a Plasma Rifle, Missile pod, Fusion Blaster, and Hard Wired Multitracker.

this setup lets him tag along with other suits and do the same thing they do (4 suits all shooting is better than 3), but he can also single out enemy heroes.... Librarians in terminator armor comes to mind..... that Fusion Blaster is an assassins weapon to marines... since theyre all T4, its insta-kill madness!!

Pre IA 3: 'O w/ MP,PR,SG, HW MT, & HW BF
Post IA 3: Expensive : 'O in XV-84 w/ MP,PR,SG, HW MT, & HW BF (plus built in Markerlight & Targetlock)
Cheap: 'El in XV-84 w/ MP,SG, Targeting Array, HW MT, & HW BF (plus built in Markerlight & Targetlock)

This way my Commander is doing what a commander should be doing and that is directing his men, and not fighting. If he has to fight he is carrying the longest range gun that Crisis Suit can carry so he's far enough back that he can't be targetted.

My commander is Shas'O Sac'ea Or'Es Ukos - Commander from Sac'ea, Powerful Spoon.

Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Fusion Blaster - Hard-wired multi-tracker

Very flexible, no bodyguards, he's an IC and untargetable most of the time.

He also spoons other commanders.
