Default Payday!

Well, today is the day I get paid, and I'm wondering what to spend my hard earned cash on. All of the models up there are necessary for the completion of my planned 1000pt force, I just don't know what order to buy them in.

Any suggestions?

Tell us what you have in your army, so we can choose.

I currently have a fully legal 1000pt army. These additions will be to change up my army in a major fashion- I'm switching from Hybrid to Mech in order to play against the more competitive gamers at my local store.

Current army models:
12 FW- rifles
12 FW- carbines
16 Kroot
1 Commander suit- weapons variable
1 XV-8- weapons variable
1 Hammerhead- weapons variable
1 devilfish
7 pathfinders (3 with railrifles)

I voted NOTHING because you have no Stealth! Get some awesome new stealth. Off ebay of course...thats the only place to get them. Or you can buy the battle force and you would get 3 Stealth...plus all the things you were debating about buying!

You could use more FW to make 12 more rifle ones. Another DF...if you play mech. Another XV-8 (honestly...you can never have enough of these guys....there are so many great options) and some lovely new stealth. Kroot...yeah just throw them in too.

Sounds to me like a battle force should be coming your way shortly!

I voted for FWs. But you might need something in the way of Heavy Support. So a Tau Piranha. Set it up with Fusion Blaster to get you that extra tank killing power.

You realize that in the model count you have, you only got 5 or 6 weapons that can shoot over 30"? and only 1 of which can reliably kill enemy battle tanks?

when that rail gun comes off, on a glance/6 the enemy will just back up to 48" and pummel you in shooting with msl launcher, et.al (first painful lesson learned as tau commander, tau will get their pants shot off by anyone if at long range, and is ill prepared. courtesey of local champion)

only one squad of devastators will do it... whatever they're equipped with, msl, las, bolter, (plasma is out of style now adays, but still out ranges you ) they will just sit out of range and basically get a turn or two of free shooting on you unless you close with them.... totally negating your range advantage on the defense

for that reason, i recommend another suit to close and shoot a the same time... but i'd really prefer to see another rail/ion head, or xv88s.
