Default Who Has The Biggest Tau Army

I was curious due to the fact that people always ask me do you think I have enough Tau. I guess I have about 6000-8000 pts of tau but never figured out the point cost. But here is my tau list to it's entirety.

1 Ethereal
1 Aun'Shi
1 O'Shova
2 FW Special Char crisis
12 Humans
120 kroot
26 kroot hounds
5 krootox
2 Games Day Kroot
16 Sharpers
60 fire warriors
6 broadsides
1 fw broadside
2 marker drones
10 shield drones
35 gun drones
4 transports
3 hammer head tanks
16 pathfinders
6 pathfinders with rail guns
15 crisis suits
12 stealth suits

I think that's all my inventory so far. I plan to get the box set which would increase my numbers. But like I said I have no clue on the points I have for my whole army. I know I have enough to make 3 armies easy. But I wanted to know anyone else have a huge tau army as well.

That's insane, that's got to be almost £1000 pounds worth of Tau...

The question is, what is the point in having that much?

The purpose is I can and have played many configurations of a tau army. Once I get 2 more broadside i can try the 9 broadsides of death and so on. I don't like to proxy so this is what you get. I played 4000pt battles before and a 6000pt one. But my army is always growing and with the new stuff it will grow some more. People like me really wish they didn't came out with the 200$ box set first.

But like I said I could pretty much try out the whole Tau inventory and make almost any army list.

ya know, that kindof list would be perfect for the campaign type that only allows you to bring in a certain amount of guys, and you leave em in a city, and then like if you have a battle, and you lost a Hammer Head, you cannot use that hammer head ever again in the campaign, since it was blown to hell! unless you put in some reinforcement rule that like whatever amount of VP's you get you cut that in half and get that many Reinforcements, but can only do this like three times per campaign or whatever. actually that sounds extremely fun! have a big world map drawn out and stuff, moving forces around to city to city.

I thought about doing that too. I have a lot of eldar as well. but not as much as I do tau so I was gonna work in Marine allies that my friend has. Eldar and Marines against Tau. It seem funky but if I dump the kroot than I could probally do eldar vs tau.
