Default Rogue Sun's Farsight Army List

My army for Farsight is going to look something like this

HQ
O'shovah with 2 body guards(Plasma, Flamers, Shield gens)
Shas'O with 2 body guards (all with Plasma, Missile, Shield gens)

ELITES
3x crisis suits (Plasma, burst cannon, multi)
3x crisis suits (Plasma, Fusion, multi)
6x stealth suits

TROOPS
48x Firewarriors
2x Devilfish (possibly 4)

FAST ATTACK
8x Pathfinders (No rail rifles)
devilfish

HEAVY SUPPORT
3x Broadsides (TL Railguns, TL Plasma, shield gens)
Hammerhead gunship

All of the suits are going to have the ork fighter upgrade, oh and I have already asked if O'shovah can get the Ork fighter upgrade, and he can't, its "already included in his profile"

O'shovah is a very hard army to use, but when used properly, it makes you feel all warm and tingley inside! LOL.

Thanks Rogue Sun! Once home, I'm gonna copy and paste that army list on Word! Sounds a pretty killer army you have! And lots of Fire Warriors!

Cheers!

that actually looks like a very solid list Rogue Sun, but I'd drop the pathfinders for a HH.

Might be a valid suggestion, but I think the Hammerhead is a 0-1 restriction in the O'shovah army list.

Pathfinders are the only Fast Attack option O'sho can take, outside of Forge World models.

looks like a solid list but theres one thing you havent put on there that could let it down...points cost, this army will cost a lot, especially with ork fighter upgrades, this in no means makes it a bad army or an unsuccessful one, you just need to think out tactics carefully as you are likely to be outnumbered heavily, espcially as farsight armies can't take kroot :P

Yeah, O'Shova is rather challenging to play and rather constricting on the units, oh yeah whats with all the pokemon? ???

but i suppose you wouldn't notice the FoC limitations etc. if you played smal points battles? well thats the reason i don't play the farsight enclave anyway, and the fact you can't take kroot! But i respect those who do as its a challenging army and lots of conversions to do (you have to actually MAKE ork fighter upgrades IMO!), and the farsight model looks awsome too...just shame about those kroot!

(pokemon thing started off as a dare amoung the mods, don't worry :P)

That is correct Hammerheads are 0-1, as are Stealth, Broadsides and Pathfinders... plus you cant have Ethereals or any form of kroot
So basically there isnt much room to negiotiate with this army, nor my army, realistically your only choice (in big battles) is how many FWs, Crisis and Devilfish you take....

Anyway i must say i am impressed with your list Rogue Sun, that almost rivals my Farsight Army.... One thing i would suggest is remove the Shas'o and make him Shas'el purely for fluff purposes, as i dislike havin 2 Shas'o's.
Then theres the little thing called Human Auxiliaries which fit perfectly with Farsight...
O and far too many Fishes for my liking also, imo the army looks better on the field with just one as well as the Hammerhead, makes the army look more ragged and characteristic...

I'm going to seriously push for the pathfinder dropping and upping the fishes to 4, then just garnish some units with some upgrades.

and the most glaring limitation to Farsight is no kroot IMO, they are an etremely valuable part of the Tau list, the rest of the limitations are nothing (bar maybe the HH) but the kroot hurt.

Pathfinders are effective with Farsight as you have limited heavy weaponry so they need to do the damage, thus the markerlights are actually useful... and as i said before 4 Devilfishes or even 3 or 2 Devilfishes isnt really Farsight at all in my opinnion, may be good for normal tau but Farsights i dislike the use of several vehicles with farsight...

And then onto the lovely Kroot... what joy i take in not using them, all a lack of kroot do is make you play different really thus being why you need to be more experienced to use Farsight, (like myself* ;D ), you just need to cover the diffeciency using partially human auxiliaries and secondly a different style of play...
