Im somewhat of a tread head... though technically Tau tanks dont have treads... whatever. I like my armor and crisis suits rock I use both a good deal. Hammerheads are one of the best tanks in the game so I use 3 of those aswell. I may turn my army more hybrid by making use of some auxilaries to put some numbers and some static gunline and support into my army but for the most part I think Im too big a fan of mech.

Then I'll go home. And remote-control my robot to play my Hybrid army for me :P

Learn to shorten your reach! If your foe can come close enough to negate your striking power, all stratagem is lost, and when all stratagem is lost, the battle is lost.

Tell me now, is there a man among you here, is there no one who will stand up and try to fight? Tell me man, is there not one in all your ranks, is there no one who values courage over life?

Right now I'm doing a mech army. I first did a hybrid army - only because hammerheads are awesome. Everything else was static. Was pretty fun. I'd like to go back and redo that army after I finish my mech army.

My Fire Warriors are almost invariably fielded as an air cavalry force, as I tend to avoid points-preservation tactics with them. Usually, the rest of the force will be made up of Crisis Suits, Hammerheads, Piranhas, and eventually a Skyray, so in that sense it is a pure Mech force. From time to time I dip into Hybrid by fielding Kroot, and more recently Sniper Drones if I have the points.

Nothing like a well executed battle plan of mobile and immobile parts meshing together for an intense battle and well-earned victory.
