ok, lets start from the top - commander??? in a small game firstly take a shas'el, simple fireknife will do you fine (dizzy has brainwashed me into thinking that now!)

secondly.....argh, so many fire warrirors! you are a powergamer because you have too many troops lol! this is seriously bad, all are static and you are better off with 2 full man squads in fishes and then one 12 man static squad.

stealth suits are ok but in smaller games the versetility of crisis suits are almost always better, secondly, you have no HS? at least 1 HH!

Crisis Shasel,
Fireknife
85

12 Fire Warriors + Shas'ui
Devilfish, decoy launchers
215

12 Fire Warriors + Shas'ui
Devilfish, decoy launchers
215

12 Fire Warriors + Shas'ui
130

3 Crisis suits, (each in a seperate elite slot)
Fireknife
195 (for 3)

Hammerhead
Rail Gun, Burst Cannons
Multitracker, Decoy Launchers
165

TOTAL 1005 points!
a list maybe even dizzy would be proud of?

I forgot to mention this list would be used in big multiplayer games where my partner is Dark Eldar with 23 Dark Lances (a bit cheese for 1k, I know). I am there to protect him and kill all that come towards us while he kills the tanks and marines. Also, in these games my Stealth Team would hop around annoying enemies and keeping them off my FW. A Shas O is jsut to good for the points, for 25 pts more you get the following: +1 WS, BS, W, A, and Ld. That is awesome.

As for mobile Tau, NEVER! Tau are for ranged combat, not skimming around in Devilfish. Also, I don't like Devilfish because I always want as many FW as possible, Devilfish aren't worth the points IMO.

dammit, i lost my whole post due to the @@@@ing internet! sorry, basically, im afraid you are very mislead my firend, tau are amobile army and work best from 12" (rapid fire pulse rifles?) and can still stay out of cc that way wih FoF.

3 Crisis suits will be more effective than the stelaths as they can be customized for anti armour and can be equiped to take out hordes (BC) or elite troops (PR) or vehicles (MP)

well then BEGONE!

my suggestions is drop 3 FW squads and a stealth trooper and downgrade the commander (minimise HQ's)

get 3 fishes and a HH w/ railgun.

Back to the subject at hand... Hmm.

There's nothing wrong with it, but it might be a bit boring after a while. While a reasonable element to complement your brother's Dark Eldar, I'd suggest adding a bit more motion to our own side. Also, I've found squads of twelve Fire Warriors to be unwieldy after a bit.

In keeping with the infantry-firepower theme of your force, my suggestion is to drop only two Fire Warriors from each squad. This should give you six squads of 10 Warriors and 120 points to spend on two additional Elites choices; namely, individual Crisis suits with Multitracker, Missile Pod, and Burst Cannon. In effect, you gain two more squads of troops to wander around and annoy things with, consisting of one suit apiece!

While they do not have the flamer your commander possesses, they can still provide admirable anti-infantry cover fire, and the Pods allow them to occasionally engage a larger enemy vehicle. It never hurts to have that "possible" added shot, just in case there isn't a dark lance nearby to strike it down. Also, I believe the Pods have an added 12" of range over the Lances themselves.

the way i think of it is that a mobile enemy will absolutely cut this list into pieces they will be on top of you before u know it and you will surely be over run even with that many dark lances.

First off I have to say this:

OMG thats allot of freakin FCWs .

That said your list is lacking in heavy. Though if you are covering for a guy with allot of heavies it looks good though a few crisis suits and an HH would be nice. Or some kroot as meat shields.

But for static defence I would hate to siege that firebase even with 2000 pts. Allot of firepower in allot of troops.

144 rapid fire shots Holy...

and don't forget that they're at strenght 5 which wounds most infantry on 2's and can even bring down wraithlords (statistically that many shots should be able to kill 3 lords)

But what would you manage to do to my Land Raider Crusader? I'll assault you and then sweep into every unit you have. You can't even glance my dread! You need some fire power, Grim.
