Well, for starters, you can only have ONE Ethereal at all.

Other than that, it has plenty of fire warriors, so should be okay, providing you shoot well.

When you mean rules i hope you dont mean stats? get a codex first! if u wanna know stats pm me because i dont think you can do it across the forum..as for your list..its nice....but needs some battlesuits....a crisis commander to replace 1 ethereal (consider both ethereals replaced in 1000pts)....and try and squeeze some stealth or crisis teams in there if you can.

I agree with 42. An Ethereal in battles of 1000 points or less is generally wasted - a crisis commander is better. Some crisis battlesuits would excellently fill the points gap (show the enemy what happens when they mess with Tau firepower!)

drop the etheral and use the points from both for a shasél - fireknife
drop the sides and get fireknife suits and a HH w/ railgun

if you don't know what the codex means, get the 40k rulebook and read it. You can't really use a codex unless you have it
