Hybrid is ok, but if you mention static I will........ Well, have you ever read the lyrics to a cannibal corpse song? > > >

Not necessarily. It is possible to have a well balanced Mechanized list. On the other hand hybrid is more balanced, but focusing on nothing but that is not always good. Everyone has their own style. I know I prefere the mechanized way of war and static, even hybrid, while I can do them, is not for me.

whilst i may agree that hybrid maybe more effective ... mech tau usually allows you to fully dominate the movement phase and is tremendous fun to play... the rules for a mech tau list tend to be all fire warriors in df, everything must be able to move 12" in a turn or have a transport. some people include kroot because they can infiltrate ... but that imo is bordering on hybrid as they are hardly mechanised (i reitterate there is nothing wrong with a hybrid). Mech tau is fun because you can shamelessly quote python "run awaaaaay!" ... hmm think i might convert a df into a trojan rabbit! ... back to the lab...
