Default Full FOC Tau army

If i had the models (and money!) here would be mine:

HQ -

Ethereal
Shas'o with FB, PR, MP (hard wired multitracker)

TROOPS-

5 x 12 Fire warriors, shas'ui
3 mounted in devilfish

20 kroot

ELITES -

6 Stealth Suits, leader with 2 gun drones
2 x 2 Crisis Suits, fireknife, leader with 2 gun drones

FAST ATTACK-

2 x 6 Pathfinders, 3 with railrifles, leader with 2 gun drones
8 gun drones

HEAVY SUPPORT-

2 Hammerheads, one with railgun, one with ion cannon
3 Broadsides

that would cost around 2500-3000pts i expect....is it a rule that one detatchment (a full FOC chart) is maximum 2500 pts, and over that you are allowed to double the FOC limits?

I have no idea :S. My Full FOC Army would pretty much be the same as that.. and I worked it out to be 3000 points.. Once I get the new rulebook this tuesday hopefully.. I'll check if its mentioned.. Until then, anyone else know?

I dunno bout the 3000 limit but yea a 2000-3000 point army generally takes up the whole FOC. I think that once you have filled the chart and have between those points you can double the chart and the points for two armies in one. But I have not finished reading the new rules but I dont think the FOC rules have changed any. I could be wronge tho.

no broadsides!! (im only joking we wont get into this argument again!) But i do think stealths should be in there somwhere....i guess you would definately have them against horde armies? i like them because they can still deal out similar volumes of fire as fire warrior squads but can soak up more in return...more mobile...and have the stelath armour....but hey thats just me!

lol, dont even mention broadsides around me (or Etherals for that matter).

Dont need stealths for hordes, the sheer amount of firepower will make up for them, plus I have 3 pie plates so i dont need stealths, you see what not wasting a HS slot on those worthless units that shall not be named does for you?

Here is my actual full FoC list:
1 Shas'O
2 Ethereals
3 Crisis with Fireknife
3 Crisis with TL MP/ Shield generators
6 Stealth Suits
3 Stealth Suits
5 12 man FCW squads
1 9 man Gue'la Aux squad (GW I have ~30 from other manufacturers)
1 8 drone squad
1 8 man Pathfinder squad with 3 railguns
1 7 man Pathfinder squad
1 3 man broadside squad
2 Hammerheads
3 Devilfish

Actually, that's a little more than a FOC with the addtional Stealth Squad.

All are painted. I only have one 'Fish/FCW squad box to assemble and paint.

WHOA WAIT!!! Where are you getting 3 HQ choices (1 Shas'O; 2 Ethereals) and 4 Elites choices(3 Crisis with Fireknife; 3 Crisis with TL MP/ Shield generators; 6 Stealth Suits; 3 Stealth Suits) ??? ? I think that you have one too many choices there!!!

I did say that was a little more than a full FoC. There's no point in taking 2 Auns too.

cheers
