Default Tau 1750 Rtt List

This list is for a 1750 RTT and yes I know 1850 is standard, I double and triple checked the listing for the tourney. I need a little help fleshing it out and filling in the extra points.

HQ

Shas El 235pts
Multi Tracker, Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod

Bodyguard (x2)
Multi Tracker, Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod

Elite

Crisis Team 1 (x3) 195pts
Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Multi Tracker

Crisis Team 2 (x3) 195pts
Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Multi Tracker

Stealth Team (x6) 180pts

Troops

Fire Warriors 1 (x11) 200pts
Deployed in Devilfish with Decoy Launchers

Fire Warriors 2 (x12) 200pts
Deployed in Devilfish with Decoy Launchers

Fire Warriors 3 (x12) 200pts
Deployed in Devilfish with Decoy Launchers

Heavy Support

Hammerhead Gunship 1 170pts
Rail Gun, Smart Missile System, Multi Tracker

Hammerhead Gunship 2 170pts
Rail Gun, Smart Missile System, Multi Tracker

Total Points: 1750
Models: 62


This is my first attempt at a Mech Tau army. Previously I had the Devilfish replaced with Pathfinders and Broadsides. I found the Pathfinders to be ineffective with my Markerlight strategy and the Broadsides were resilient but lacked the ability to move and shoot.

Changes Iím considering are this; First changing the Crisis configs to have two in the group with Shield Generators and twin Linked Plasma and Burst Cannons. This would Garner the Invulnerable save to the group until I took a casualty. Second Iím considering freeing up points to put a Shasí Ui in the Fire Warrior teams and giving him a Target Lock With a Markerlight to aid the Hammerheads.

My experience with RTTís is that Iíll need the mobility of the Devil Fish to control objectives and the Plasma Rifles for the dozens of Marine and Chaos armies who will be playing.

Another question I have requards Harlequins. I noticed that in Army Builder that I can add a Wraithlord with a Star Cannon for less than the cost of any of my Elites choices. Does anyone have any expierience with this. Is it legal? So give me your input.

I advice Shas'ui for all fire warriors units since Ld7 isn't good enough. Don't bring markerlights for fire warriors in devilfishes - they are not supposed to be able to fire heavy weapons since they should always be on the move.
In my opinion about what is a nice army your Crisis is too many and all have the same upgrades. At least switch some of them to TL Plasma + Flamer.

Drop the bodyguards and make your HQ shas'o, then add stuff from your armory.
Some decoy launchers to your fishes etc.

Decoy Launchers are a must have for the fish, and change the railgun on one your HH's to an Ion cannon.

good list, well done luke .

and the bodyguards actually make the Shas'El more vunerable, drop them and inflate the Crisis teams.
Drop the SMS for BC and Shas'ui the FW teams.

try to get 2 teams of 2 Crisis and Shas'ui for all the FW teams aswell as DL for the HH and Fish if you can.
