Default Starting Small Army

Hi all,

I have decided to try to take a small tau forceand kill things in the name of the greater good. I am unable to decide what to take in a small 500-750 pt game. I want a vehicle, either a devilfish or a Parhana, lots of fire warriors and maybe a Etherial. Any suggestions or help would be nice.

well for that small of a game youll need an armour killer welcoming the broadside so you'll have some extra points load up on 2 12 man squads of FW's then an ethereal with a 6 man bodyguard
all i can think of for now

Maybe 12 firewarriors and then 12 human warriors? They fit my fluff. I think that I would be able to have a broad side and a Parhana don't you?

Good luck with your army,

I would suggest Fire Warriors, Fire Warriors, and Fire Warriors. You really can't go wrong with them, especially if you're playing 700-1000 point games. Probably 2 of them, I personally like Gue'vasa (one with a pulse rifle costs 9 points, costs less and is better (WS 3) than a single FW) and you need at least one heavy support, if you have room, a railhead (take out HQ then submition ;D) but youd also need some battlesuits...

For 770 points you could have 3 FW troops of 12, 3 Crisis, 1 Shas'o, 1 railhead. Not bad! Of course, you would probably want more variety, particularily stealths, but that ^ can go very far.

I would take a Railhead. I would also take a Monat Deathrain, a Helios, a penknife Shas'O, two squads of mounted FW, and Stealths.

Would that be under 750 pts? Also can Gue'vesa be mounted in a devilfish?
