Default The Tau Star Wars

With the long wait for the pirahnas, i thought of a nasty tactic. why i was watching starwars i notice something about the the 3 x-wing fighters flying down the trench of the deathstar and i said hey, 3 pirahnas with 2 seeker missles each. I know this tactics is very expensive but i would like to try it sometime is just have 3 pirahnas with seekers zooming 24 inches down the table with markerlights hitting a tank in cover and have those seekers hitting side or rear armor what do you guys think.

Yup, its a good idea, but nothing new. But don't just filed 3 Piranhas without a specific purpose, first its a lot of pts waisted. Make sure you army reflects your opponent.

look farther than that too. what do u do after you zoom across the board?
i suggest you pay more for fusions too and do some tanks hunting while your back there

this strat is a huge headache for enemies cause three skimmers are hard to down.

why not even take 2 teams and one pathfinder. equip them with less seekers. your opponent has to immediatly deal with them while your weaker warriors n such plink away the diverted enemy. it's and old stealthsuit strategy upgraded.
The Tau Empire fears no enemy, cowers from no fire, runs from no sword and turns from no battle. Together we stand and no one will make us fall. Now is the time for the Greater Good.

It's nice, if you can get three tanks, which all together cost more than 250 points, which can all be marked... It's a nice strategy, but unless those three tanks are going to smash lots of stuff, don't sacrifice that many points.
