3 sniper teams

____________________

i will DEFINATELY be using
1 rail head
3 broadsides
3 sniper teams
3 devilfish (not sure if 1 is for PF's yet)
2 or 3 12 man FW squads
MAYBE pathfinders IF i got the points
3 pirahnas w/ fusion
3 squads stealth - 1 fusion w target array 3 burst (with drones as points allow)
1 shas'o - will kit as nec.
________________________________________________

Question- out of the available resources, what would best compliment the broadsides and snipers - fire warriors, honor guard & aun, kroot?? something else?
should i cut something out to fit pathfinders in??
is my force balnced enough to reliably prevail, assuming sound tactics and a liitle luck on my part?
if not , how do i fix it?

Can never go wrong with Kroot, so cheap for a ranged and close combat unit that infiltrates. Even 10 will help wittle down enemies and act as a fire sponge.

Ethereals with an honourguard however....bleh, will die very fast.

But it would be alot easier if we knew the points ranges you're aiming at.

whoops . . . didn't think about that.
humblest of apologies.
let's say 2000 pts, i can whittle off or build up from there.
as for tank gear decoys and multi trackers of course, anything else will depend on points left over.

But you have to remember the FWs that are his bodyguards. Bs 4 is something.

Kroots are the way to go. More fluffy too.

And those firewarriors also negate his IC status, considering the unit only has a 4+ save and toughness 3...they can easily be ripped apart in less than a turn, forcing many failed morale tests with all your Tau units.

Ethereals are defunkt worthless pap.
