Default Tau Kill Team

My gaming group is planning a kill team tourny, and I've never played kt with Tau. Does anyone have any good teams? the best ones I could come up with are five stealth suits (breaks five mutable rules,) and six Fire Warriors, six drones (one mutable rule.) is it just me or are Tau unsuited for Kill Team, I mean the two units you'd expect to see sneaking behind enemy lines are Kroot (who are too cheap and can't take a shaper,) and Stealthsuits who's burst cannon breaks a rule, so your opponent quickly gets way two many Brute Squads.

sorry if this goes in Army Lists, I wasn't sure.

Tau are terrible at kill team. They are designed for 40k, and a combined arms approach. Their brutes suck as well.

If you don't get to use a force org chart, Tau generally shouldn't play it. Kill team, Space hulk, mega battles...

Well I didn't want to knock the kill team ideal. When I said slight disadvantage it was a nice way of saying don't expect to win.

Just go with 12 FWs and kill the brutes in range with your 30 inch range. It's not much fun, I know, but it's about all that's good in KT. That or take some PFs without their 'Fish, a Rail Rifle and drone controller. Seems a bit better to me there.

Or, those with the new 'Dex (cuz I don't have it yet) how would a Vespid kill team do? Cuz I was thinking I might try that, and maybe throw in some drones, just to fill out any further points I may need.

vespid kill team would be the bestest (imo) because until they come out with an army that has a 2+ save noone gets a save ;D

i'd go with 6x good ole stealth suits, even though the enemy gets 6x more brutes and a really beefy boss.
