the WD pulled some crazy stuff and got out 1000 points from it.

of course, some things on that army list was wack and could be made a tad more efficiently so that # has a ~100 point margin for random things (upgrades, crisis suit toys, etc)

The Tau Megaforce comes with 792 unupgraded points (models before adding on points for extra weapons, wargear, etc). The Megaforce is however a 1000 points set, so all in all Gamesworkshop expects you to add about 200 points (Hammerhead weapons=40-60 points, Crisis Battlesuit weapons/support systems [two Battlesuits]=50-100 points, Firewarrior markerlights [two squads]=20 points+Shas'ui [2]=40 points, and so on). Basically it's about 1000 points after upgrades.

A battleforce is always at least 1000 points, give or take.
