Default Hybrid in the new stages

as said above im thinking about the new hybrid Tau.* what units would they be concentrating on, what part of both armies would they be using etc...

my take on it as far as i know of the new codex would probably be like this

Crisis commander
bodyguard w/special weapons

stealth suits with fusion blasters and/or targetting array

2 mounted squads fire warriors
2 unmounted squads fire warriors
kroot w/hounds
kroot with ox
hammerhead
sniper drones
didnt put point values for list size because it is just a relative thing what do you guys think about the new Hybrid?

looks like its gonna be a nice chunky army

You might want to consider getting a unit of broadsides with the new and improved ASS (hehe giggle) & shield drones to really give your opponent some hard target choices. Id drop the 2nd unit of kroot for em, 1 sizeable unit is enough (remember in new codex you can have all kroot models in 1 squad)

Hey lonely tau, I noticed above you said "kroot with ox", what do you mean with this?

Krootox, one would guess.

Secondly, shouldn't this be in the Army list section?

oh, yeah, forgot about the krootox. I should really think about these things... Also, its to my belief, that only one stealth suit can have a fusion blaster. :-\

i havent read the new codex but a squad of nearly 100 kroot infiltrating 12" away is a very strange and scary prospect
