drop a couple upgrades and give at least one fw squad a fish. Whether you play mobile or not, they're necessary in about every situation.

Default Re: 1250 tau list

ok firstly that list is hard to read....it helps if you keep text to the left margin....

Commander i can see you have tried to save points on him but he has to get pretty close to be effective, therefore take the standard fire knife combo and for just 4 points more overall!

I'd drop the thereal in this small battle, add it in when you get over 1700/1800 IMO

As for the crisis suits do you just have the three? hmm, dont take team eladers as the stats increase and har dpoint isnt worth it, instead its far more points effective to go with fireknife for the suits.

For the stealths drop the gun drones as they may be nice but just make the squad a touch too expensive.

For the firewarriors having a shas'ui for the boosted leadership is a worthwhile upgrade and also devilfish are needed here to give you more more mobility/survivability of your key troops.

For the HH's drop the landing gear...moving over 6" per turn and only recieving glancing hits is invalauble!

ok thats probably too much advise to take in so heres a little sample list...bear in mind this would more or less my list for this points amount! it doesnt have to be yours but i would advise taking note of my comments above if anything.

HQ - 85

Shas'el,
Fireknife - 85

ELITES - 260

2 Crisis Suits
Fireknife - 130

2 Crisis Suits
Fireknife - 130

TROOPS - 580

12 Fire Warriors,
Shas'ui, Bonded,
Devilfish *- 220

12 Fire Warriors,
Shas'ui, Bonded,
Devilfish *- 220

20 Kroot - 140
(read other topics tyo find about these guys, they increase your model count significantly and will serve youwell!)

HEAVY SUPPORT -330

Hammerhead, Rail Gun, Burst Cannon, (skimp on the secondary weapons to save you points)
Multitracker, Decoy Launchers
165

Hammerhead, Rail Gun, Burst Cannon,
Multitracker, Decoy Launchers
165

TOTAL 1255-

Majoy change is more mobility with devilfishes, had to sacrifce the stealths for this im afraid!

EDIT : OK i didnt see you change your army list but my advice still applies....also dont take lone broadsides....HH's will serve you better, especially railgun ones and in a 1250 points battle!

sorry 42, but I don't think any Tau army is complete with at least one Stealth squad. I'd say either drop the Kroot (unless your a Krootfan), or one of the fishes for some stealthies.

hey dont be sorry, just cos im a mod doesn't make me right! (well it almsot does though ;D), i have included stealths in the 1500pt list just published but i felt there just wasnt enough points and the kroot were in there to add some numbers and do all sorts of things (wrong thread to talk abou tthem but they rock!!!) agaisnt power amroured opponents i often find stealths aren't as effective as others so it can dpeend on the army, i dont see stealths as a necessity in 1250points, more of a luxury, but dont get me wrong i do value their uses....

heh, yeah. I've just played about every game with them and they have only all been taken down once ( bloodthirster didn't enjoy them harrassing his fellow Khornates), but that's just me.
