Default Tau: Choosing/Equiping the right squads/units

Quote:
The Tau Army

List does not have the myriad of choices available to a Space Marine army, or the

customizability of units available in a Tyranid army, yet it does offer some very strong

units that can be used alone or in combinations to devastate nearly any foe.
<br /

>The purpose of this article is to break down my thoughts on how to choose a Tau army

list by taking each choice of the list in turn and outlining what are, in my view, each

unit&#39;s strengths and weaknesses. Simply click on the army selection heading below

to go to each category.
http://www.minivault.com/TacTauSelect

.htm

has articles on all hq/elites/troops/fast/heavy choices,

some

pretty useful and convincing info there

a brief run down of whats there<br /

>
Hq
  • Commander - some info on which one to take, and equipment

  • bodyguard - wargear etc
  • ethereal - pros and cons

Elites
  • crisis suits - wargear, weapon combos
  • stealth

    suits = good + why

Troops
  • fire warriors -

    generally pros and cons, how many to take
  • Kroot - some roles and uses

  • Human Auxiliries - put these to good use

Fast

Attack
  • gun Drones - how many to take, what to use them for


  • Pathfinders - how many to take (all) what to buy when using them
  • Kroot

    hounds - pretty much dont use them

Heavy Support

    general gist - dont use them
