2 squads of 1 for me. At 1500, Vespids or Pathfiners might be included, so I need to leave some room for them.

Honestly, Irsrafal, can you STOP making these threads. You made 2 threads on the excact same tactica and now a new thread on this poll. Many of us have responded on how many piranhas we would take.

I said "Other"

"Other" as in 3 squads of 5 ;D


I love those little buggers... but $375 to fill my fast attack is a bit much

Just trying to get a feel for everyone's like/dislike of the unit. It's about what I expected so far.

Either one squad of 1 or one squad of 2.

They're useful but I don't bulid my armies to rely on any one unit.

The key to a good Tau army is to have your units work together for the benifiet of the whole. No one unit is critcal to the battle plan.

My vote cannot really be just one or the other.

The fielding of piranha is not a priority in the core creation of one of my own lists. But more, a secondary option. I like the Piranha. I enjoy two squads of one, in lower point games, if I use them. In higher points, two squads of two. Anymore than that, and the list is being specialized and fast attack heavy, and unless I'm facing a particular arch-type army where this will be in my favor, it's simply becoming unbalanced and could be a massive pitfall (or a shining grace, against someone who forget to bring any form of gun to the board).

I do however wish that instead of the Piranha, we would have been given the Tetra.

Cheers!

I'd run 1-2, in 1-2 squads, depending on the specifics of my list. They're fast, but they don't pack enough punch to be gotten in large squads.

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?

Tetras... I'd definitely use a handful of those. Too bad the disruption pod's "yet another way to turn things into glances" now instead of the old range-killer though... Those rocked. "Oh I'm sorry, you have to be within Forty-TWO inches to nail me with those lascannons! sorry". It wasn't actually very powerful ruleswise, but it really threw people off.

Admitted. I just love them. And i'd rather take fluff and loose with an army i like than win with one i don't.
