Default What unit would you like a strategy guide for?

Hi all Together with a couple of other members on this board, I've decided to write some tactica articles as soon as the new codex is out. What I'm wondering is... What would this community like to see? What units would you be interested in? I can write about any unit you'd like, I'm hoping to get through the entire codex by some point (prolly take a long time), but I though I'd start with the units you'd want me to.

Oh, and please; also give reasons for your answers.

Firewarriors, because they are the staple of the Tau army

That is a good point e1rond! I guess I never thought about it that way, but as far as I know, they're not removing the 1+, meaning every Tau army has to have them. I included the devilfish as part of the FireWarriors because it is so much used.

Give me Broadsides >

I want to know if the new updates are really as good as they say (moving broadsides are good but ...).
It's interesting to see that the Broadsides can finally move, altough I don't want to sacrifice my hardpoint. The drones (changed) are really handy too as their armour changes according to their unit (rumoured), why not just give them slow but purposefull, having to roll a D6 to see how far they move all the time :-X

I say all. THat's my word on it. New weapons on crisis suits, new stealths, pirahna's, etc etc.

With all this coming out, it's better to just make a new tactica.

Personally i would like a tactica on Gun Drones... both as taken with a Drone Controller and how the new rules have possibly fixed them and general successful uses of Fast Attack Units.

Sniper Teams...definitely. I have no idea how to use these at all...as do none of us, naturally, since they aren't out yet. Of the new units, I think they will be the hardest to use...something like Imperial Guard Heavy Weapon Teams, I imagine...just a little bit weaker but cheaper. Still, they will be gold for a static firepower army with enough deadly targets to draw fire with. Possibly useful for a hybrid force...but no good for a Mech Tau army.

Path Finders as I see either an overdepence or under-rating of these excellent Fast Attack choice.

I would like to see tactica on sniper teams, especially any possible thoughts on melding these into a mech/hybrid force.
