Screw the drones, add more FW.
But the fireknife is, by my opinion, the best choice for your battlesuits.
Don't specialize them too much.

Weather or not you intended it to be this is a bit cheesy, unfortunately cheese in a tau army is ALWAYS counter productive, take out the Shas'o and at least on if not two of the crisis, bump the squads up to 12 each, preferably put them in devilfish and add a heavy support (broadside or hammerhead) removing gundrones if necessary.

Im just started with Tau after 2 years pause from warhammer.

Im getting another squad FW within the month, and also a HH.

The different weapons on the Battlesuits are there so that I always have a suitable target for them. But Im thinking of changing the burst cannon on the Shas'o

And this is exactly what I have at the moment.. In the 1750p army I intend on having 36 fire warriors and 1 or 2 in a fish

ok, that list has huge problems, there are too many variations on the Crisis when you dont know who your opponent is, you have 2 HQ and you have only 12 FW.

to rememdy this well reconstruct the list.

Shas'El
Fireknife
85pts
solid and stable HQ, can IC it w/ another Crisis squad to get protected.

Elites
2 Crisis
Fireknife
130pts
you seem to be overly fond of crisis but these are the tool, versatile and will always have a target

3 Stealths
solid and dependable harassment, good lure for the FoF

Troops
12 FW
Shas'ui
Bonded
Devilfish
DL
225pts

12 FW
Shas'ui
Bonded
Devilfish
220pts
Godd mobile FoF squads, add to the nice load of firepower in this list.

exactly 750pts

this list lacks a bit in the antitank but needing 2 troops choices I couldnt help it, you could TL the crisis MP to add more antitank if its nececcary, I myself dont see tanks much in >1000pts though.

I just could not fight with a 750Pt army. I have far too much to choose from and also i rather see what the other person is using first but not that you can do that a lot. But i will devise an army and post it soon.

Default Re: 750p tau army

The list by Dizzygamer is almost the exact list I was going to play this weekend. I am playing a 750 pt game. I have been reading so much about the Tau that I am going Fireknife permanent on 3 of my Crisis suits. Plus I am using my HH as a DF so I can FoF my Enemy to death. (My next 2 to 4 suits will not have the weapons glued.)

My only change was that I wanted 3 grps of fire warriors but I am not sure.

Dizzy- How about going Shas'O?, because if I send in the suits to Kill a Tank, I want it dead in one turn.

I also wanted to play some gun drones, but I am going to hold off until I can play the FoF tactic.

Just my two cps worth.
Good Luck
Apocalyptic

Personally, I find Shas'O better. If you want to take an enemy's core points out as soon as possible, take it. and get more fire warriors, 3 squads using FoF can end the game in a couple turns for your enemy ( situational )
