Default Typical Tau army size? (number of models)

yea i been asking alot of questions on a daily basis, but.... room for one more?

how many miniatures you guys usualy run in your armies? what usually a "good" number to aim for (in a 1.5k army)? best/worst miniature to point ratio?

your experiances guides this one, many thanks!

I've only got 500 points but that has 16 models (including one devilfish) so if you multiply that up 1.5k is 48.

What a good count is depends on what type of army you play, mech will have lots of expensive crisis suits and vehicles thus a low model count, static will have tons of firewarriors with hybrid nestling somewhere in-between.

so 45 is not that big huh?
i run five crisis suits, 3 fire warrior teams, 4 stealth suits,3 broadsides, a sniper team, and a hammerhead

do strength in numbers really give tau an edge or is it just a beefed up army?

I usually play games of 1.5k or 1.85 I run anywhere between 40 to 60 models depending on how many of my plethora of suits i want to air out just feel bad that they don't get more game time.

I usually play 1850 to 2000 points and so averge between 75 to 100 models for Hybrid list . My mech Tau tend to be smaller nimbering between 60 to 75 models.

The higher count is because I like having lots of troops with a core of other units for support.
