Default Crisis suit configurations

Hey, all, I have a question about XV8 configs. I'm only familiar wiht fireknife and burning spear patterns, but see helios, burning eye and others around this forum. Could someone(s) please explain the common configurations and what they're good at, seeing as I'm a noob, i don't know much about strategy, but do know that crisis suits are one of the msot improtant aspects of tau forces. Thanks.

scroll a bit down, until you get to Tactics Threads: and click on the link to XV8 Battlesuit Configs/Tactics. Anyhow, the other topics are also worth the time to read.

I have a question about painting these crisis suits of armor. because they come with multiple pieces of weaponry, and somethimes they dont all fit. Is there an idea to help me out with that. Or, can I just glue on the baddest, meanest looking gun and then declare what gun I really am using at the outset of a table match?

You have to use the gun you desire to use on your battlesuit. For example, if you want to use a burst cannon, then you must have the burst cannon on your battlesuit. If you want to configure your battlesuits differently after each game, you could try using blue tack to make is stick and be easily removable.

Hmm..

I see a Variation that can be applied to Malveaux Crisis suits doctrine.

Generally in 1500 points or less you won't see more than 6 suits. In the Guide it says you should give your suits a role, which I agree with, with the advent of the targetting computer (+1 BS), there is a facility for Crisis Suits with access to wargear to increase their BS.

The increased BS allows them to have more capability to hit thus more reliability and thus allows for a variations in their effectiveness at Roles. My favourite is a Tau HQ with 2 Bodyguards each with targetting computer which gives em BS 5, and 2 of 4 with Missile Pod and Plasma Rifle they are very effective.

They have a constant rate of fire which is reliable because of the BS, they cost a bit more, but they are very effective and devastating to the Enemy.

In a 2000 point game where I add in a squad of Regular Crisis Suits I go for the Twin Linked weapons and Fire Knife on the officer as he will have a Targetting Array.
