Default Re: 500 tau army list

I have a couple recommendations:

You don't need target lock on your Shas'O since he's not in a squad

Get at least 2 more stealths and take off their Shasui's target lock

take out the Shasui's target locks on each of your FW squads, take off the Pgrenades ( waste of points as you'll probably never get to use them)

and take off the Carbines on one of your FW squads

Next, I'd add a Hammerhead, a Kroot Squad and a Crisis Squad,
in fact, just go ahead and get the Tau Battleforce
it'd be perfect for ya.

My main suggestion would be to fit some sort of anti-vehicle heavy support in there, as your army might not fair to good against an army with plenty of heavy support(I see most 400-800pt. armies have 1/2 tanks).

TL Is great under the right circumstance. Allowing to fire @ a different target from that of the rest of the squad.

In the army u have listed most are unnecessary or at best ineffective

Other than that, I'd just buy a HH and 1, if not 2, fishes if your focusing on mobility.
