Default 2000pts tau

Ive come over this great deal of tau units, total worth of 300 euros. I pay 40 euros

60 Fire Warriors
6 Stealth Suits
13 crisis
2 Broadsides, a little demolished.
1 Ethereal
1 special Crisis
17 gundrones
1 shield drone
2 Devilfishes
2 Hammerheads

And with those changes I would also like some help with a 2000pts army that is goin to be split in 2 different forces. one 750 pts stationary force and a 1250pts mobile force.

Assuming that you never have to play the full 2,000 points at once, I would suggest making both forces mobile.* The only real advantage a static army has over a mobile army is numbers, and that is difficult for Tau to capitalize on, especially with only 2 Broadsides (demolished?).

For the 1250

85* * *Fireknife Shas'el

280* *2 X 2-man* Fireknife Crisis

100* *3-man Stealth Team, bonded

440* *2 Fire Warrior squads with stock Devilfish

340* *2 Hammerheads with Multi-Tracker, Railgun and SMS.

1245 points


Assuming you still want the 750 to be relatively static,

106* *Shas'el with Fusion Blaster, Missile Pod, and shield generators, hard-wired multi-tracker

360* * * *4 X 9-man Fire warrior squads

150* * * *2 X 1-Man Broadsides with Multi-tracker

130* * * *2 X 1-Man Fireknife Crisis suits


If you combine the two armies, you will just need to merge the Crisis and Broadside units.* The 750-point army is going to be a little hard to use effectively, but the 1250 should be pretty solid.

well. theres really 1 BS thats perfectly fine, and 3 thats a little broken, but they can be assembled into 1 or 2 fine ones!

But thanks for the list, althought I now find that I havent really written all facts that you might need!

Forgot to update him in my second version of the list. Fixed now.

Oh, and the main reason for the static force is to act as a base for my mobile units if things get screwed! there they can reform and get out again!
