Oh for the love of... I appologise for sounding harsh, but you should use the search function before making topics like this... there was another thread a while back just like this.

Basic answer: *No unit is 'the best'. *All are designed to complement each other (okay, with some notably useless exceptions like the Krootox.) *If you tell us what you have already we can help you better, if you already have a Crisis HQ and two squads of Fire Warriors i would recommend a Hammerhead with a railgun (railhead) for some serious firepower both against tanks and hordes.

As previously stated no unit is the best and the each element of the army compliments the others...yadda yadda yadda

IMO You'll want to get ahold of a broadside battlesuit next. Perhaps not as versitile as other selections but damn it look at the model. Beautiful image to see a broadside perched on a hill top just picking vehicles off one after another and raining smart missiles down upon medium infantry.

Good times...good times...

I have a ethereal with two drones, a three man crisis and stealth team with 1 drone, a twelve man firewarior squad, a devilfish, a 11 man kroot squad, and five drones.

heh, this thread gets created every other day.

Stealth suits all the way, my good man. They are hard to sight, hard to shoot past their armor, and hard to catch. Everything the perfect tau unit should be, and let's not forget the 18 shots they deliver, on the move.

Small units firing a lot of shots = good. Less space to worry about when dealing with terrain.
