Default Crisis Poll

Simply as the question asks, what's your favourite crisis configuration and why?

Obviously i'm asking for my own benefit But i figured this might help out anyone who's unsure about how they want to kit their suits out, or just to pick up some new ideas and tactics from a configuration they've never considered.

GO!

EDIT - Being the fool (and noob) that i often am, i forgot to add other. Those who wish to vote for something other than what I've listed... DIE! I mean. Um, just write it out =) sorry for the inconvenience.

I chose Fireknife because it works against the armies I play against :P (necrons, SM)

I love my Helios Shas'O, his kill tally is more than I care to count and he is excelent at killing anything big and nasty from Daemon Princes and Land Raiders to Characters and Terminators. It also helps that he hits on 2's and has a Shield Generator but still I like the weapon combo the best of any other just for personal preferance.

To be honest, my favorite XV-8 config is the Forgeworld Shas'o R'myr. It's the only named Tau Character I'd be willing to field in my army. It fits my playstyle, and it's a very VERY cool model.

However, of those listed I chose Deathrain because I always, Always, ALWAYS field at least 2 of them in any list above 1K (and at least 1 in any sub-1K list). The other suits vary between Helios if I feel I need more close-range/low AP weaponry, or Fireknife if I'm looking for more long-range/high power shots.

I've dabbled with some exotic commander configs, but I've largely settled on the CIB/Plasma/MT combo on BS5 commanders. Good mid-range unit with both high rate of fire and acceptable low AP potential.

R'myr's config would be a blinding spear I think. TL PR and a Shield Generator.

Mostly. It's a double-barreled PR, so 2 plasma shots up to 24 inches.

Monat. Although I thought that was a term for a solo suit, not a configuration. But whatever.

My Anti-Armor comes from Pirhanas, and Anti- MEQ form an Inonhead, so I use the Monat which is decent MEQ and GEQ killing power.

Yeah, monat is the Tau word for a solo pilot, means "freedom of one" if I remember right. Apparently the PR/BC combo is called bladestorm.

Helios is probably my favorite, just because it looks the best. I mean I want my commander to have some badass guns, he doesn't look as threatening armed with nothing but a couple of missile pods. He needs to stand out. Also seems to give him a bit of personality, since he has to get in close to the enemy to make that FB useful...up close and personal for the Greater Good. You need to have the balls to get into the thick of things to lead a cadre. ;D

"Aurora" or "Centurion" for me any day(CiB, PR, TA on 'El)

However, as that isn't an option ;D I'm going with Death Rains. 53 points gets you an effective transport popper, leaving your other, dedicated, anti-armor for the main tanks. And you can rarely go wrong with 36".

Just my two cents.

You may want to add an option for "Other". There a few of the more exotic configurations that show up from time to time as favorites.
