Default Know your self [Discussion]

HQ

Commander + Bodyguards
Pretty

expensive pointswise, but its a pretty good way for including more crisis suits (body

guards and commander count as one hq choice, not 2 or an extra elite choice...<br

/>
Ethereal - What youd take for lower point games, maybe for higher ones youd use a

shas el, and for even bigger games, shaso, and for even bigger games, both shas o and

ethereal.. for even bigger games, take bodyguard as well..
ethereal has its

advantages, eg rerolls.. as long as you keep him away in a corner/hole somewhere as far

away from the enemy as possible, you shouldnt have any trouble with him dying.. however

if space is limited or the enemy is fast, but him in a broadside team to the advantage of

both the broadsides and the ethereal - broadsides become fearless and ethereal gets many

many layers of protection..

more comments as god posts up more

I think this thread should be done in the style

of Advantages/Weaknesses of each Tau unit.

Elites:

Crisis Suits - what god

said.. expanding on hit an run.. move 6" forward, shoot, move 6" back.. keep in

mind rapid fire weapons on crisis suits dont count as having moved..
<br /

>Stealthsuits - these are really good.. i try to take as many as i can.. or what my

wallet can take anyway.. i use them to harass enemy units from a distance, and also

attempt to take out or reduce heavy weapon squads that will normally slaughter my

firewarriors before i get close enough to shoot them..

Hi all!
I know it&#39;s not

complete, but would you mind if I added this thread to the main TO website?


Thanks,

First of all Crisis Suits
Use hit and run

tactics, work best if 1 per unit (Monat) so you dont lose an entire squad at a time -

they are that vital
Also with 4th edition they move 12" in movement and 6"

in assualt so you want to be using Monats and zipping around to and from cover isolating

units - great if they are on opposite sides of the field that way you can surround enemy

units massacre them and move back.

Stealth
Just like Crisis but a full

squad of these can create 18 shots of strength 5 - brilliant anti-infantry
<br /

>Broadside
Very strong - will go through any tank with ease just keep them still and

place them somewhere they can target lots of units. Possibly use drones to increase

surviveability
