Shas’ui w/ Photon Grenades
Devilfish w/ Targeting Array, Decoy Launchers
Bonded

Hammerhead – 165 pts
Railgun, Smart Missile System
Targeting Array (per-equipped, no cost), Decoy Launchers

The little * are notes to myself on what to buy first. The Commander and his Bodyguard are equiped for easy all around fights. The two Crisis squads are made to be Anti-Infantry (the first one) and Anti-Tank (the second one). Just a side note, the Kroot Hounds are in there because only 16 Kroot come in the boxers and battle force. I really dont want to buy a whole nuther box for just 4 guys.

Tear it up ;D

EDIT: The * stuff adds up to 720 pts.

Default Re: 1500 pt list

ok nice ideas for that army..im not going to give you all my advice over again (see the 1250pt army list and see what applies..sorry im too lazy!) oh yeh where are my manners, welcome to the tau online forums first ;D

now for your list...this is just how i'd change it trying to incorporate most of your models in the list you posted -

HQ - 85

Shas'el
Fireknife - 85

(make this guy cheap as you can, also drop the bodygaurd so you can have the IC rule...if you want more crisis suits take them as elites, the upgraded stats and extra ahrdpoint really isnt worth it)

ELITES -380

Ok now you can have crisi suits....6 is more than enough anyway!

2 Crisis Suits - 130
Fireknife
(keep it nice and simple, effective all round and still a failry cheap option)

2 Crisis Suits - 130
Fireknife

4 Stealth Suits - 120
(good for a more balanced army but if you really do prefer crisis then another 2 man fireknife team here)

TROOPS - 716

Here is what i want changing! not enoguh mobility..must take deilfishes, oh and no grenades! avoid cc altogether -

12 Fire Warriors, - 220
Shas'ui Bonded
Devilfish
(perfect FoF team)

12 Fire Warriors, - 220
Shas'ui Bonded
Devilfish
(perfect FoF team)

12 Fire Warriors - 140
Shas'ui Bonded

16 Kroot +4 Hounds - 136

FAST ATTACK -

pathfinders are a big points sink, they have to take a devilfish and you havent got enoguh heavy support for them to be necessery!

HEAVY SUPPORT - 330

Hammerhead, Railgun, Burst Cannons - 165
Multitracker, Decoy Launchers

Hammerhead, Railgun, Burst Cannons - 165
Multitracker, Decoy Launcher

TOTAL 1511,

your opinions?

Personaly, I like the guard. I'v seen my friend use them all the time and the cammander unit has a lot more "last" to it. And, if you paint em like all your other Crisis, you cam make your opponent wonder where the HQ went :P

Eventually, I will add a full Stealth team. Not so soon tho...

FoF? And I dont like Devilfishs' with Fire teams too much. I only play on 48x48 boards and 1) There is not a lot of space and 2) 48x48 is not that hard to run around on.

The Pathfinders are an acting harraser (spelling?) unit. I really would like to keep them for now and see how thye work out.

wow! Personaly, Imma keep it as one for now. And, yet again, 48x48 boards are very spacey.

Fireknife is a weapons configuration for Crisis, consisting of a plasma rifle and missile pod ...

And FoF is a tactic which many use, but dont worry you dont have to use it, see the sticky thread in the tau board titled FoF...

You don't have to go all fireknife but some consequency is nice. Use the same configurations for all suits in the same unit. Missile Pod + Fusion Blaster + Multi-Tracker is a good tank-hunter while Burst Cannon + Missile Pod/Plasma Rifle + Multitracker works for infantry.
Contrary to what you states I find Devilfishes even more useful on small tables than on large ones. You need extra speed to keep away from your enemy.
And as 42 said - skip the grenades!

I hope he meant good, because if you use it with time and precision, it can't fail you
