Default Tactica: Tau (help)

Okay, I'm new to wh40K. I love everything about the Tau. I'm just wandering the difference between the play styles. I hear "Mech Tau", "Hybrid", and "Static" but my mind is like, huh? ??? Could someone explain the different styles to me? Thanks for you're time.

Hi, firstly welcome to 40K.


Basicly mech Tau is an army where EVERYTHING has to be able to move 12" at least a turn so all firewarriors are in devilfish and there is no kroot or broardsides in the army

Static means that the army is dsigned to be staic, I.E. broardsides and kroot are used and most firewarriors are not in vehicles

Hybrid is a mix between the two so maybe all firewarriors are mounted but there are a lot of broardsides




Hope that helped

Mech tau reffers to a playstyle that involves that ANY unit must have a 12" movement phase (correct me if im wrong) thus all your Firewarriors must be mounted

Static refers that your Firewarriors are not mounted and they form a firebase, along with your kroot units and ethereals

Hybrid refers to a mix of both, for example Mounted warriors with a team of broadsides and infiltrating kroot

Infiltrating kroot has the advantage that the'll be where you need them from the first turn,(objective holders)
While broadsides provide anti-tank support from the back
And Firewarriors along with crisis and stealths manage to make some kills and react to threats

let me get you a link to the holy bible of mechtau (MTT, mech tau tactica)

MechTau- everything must be able to move 12"
Kroot, broadsides, and Auxiliaries are not a good choice for this army

Hybrid- Generally a cross between the extremes of MechTau and Static
Everything goes into this catagory

Static- this is the type of army I hear least played. The Tau can't get out of the way of CCW people so they have to mow them all down beforehand... no mean feat.
Generally Kroot, broadsides, and Auxiliaries are accepted here, and mounted FW squads aren't worth it.
