Default Needs help making an army.

right as the tittle states i need help in making an army it is me and my tau friend (both of us are tau) vs 2 of my other m8s 1 being guard 1 being khorne,but there is a twist to the mission, the mission is assassinate the enemy special character. mine and my fellow tau players mission will either be assassinate either kharn or commissar yarick it is between those two as we choose there one and they choose our one we are thinking yarick as he is weaker but the guard player is very good when it comes to defending his leader, Our opponents have chosen our leader to be commander farsite which has left me and my friend very limited with farsights enclaves restrictions so can anyone help us make a 2k list with commander farsight in please thanks in advance

go for Karn as he has to get into combat. khorne get into blood freny and have to move towards combat. to kill karn i sugjest use the 7man body guard team that frasight gets all with twin plamas (AP2) and 2 shield drone each. well this would be like a million pts but would be a way of keeping him alive.
but the best way i think since you are so limited would be to use his 7 man body guard. and hope your opponent like glory Comander vs Comander.

yes, I would also recommend the 'seven samurai' list. if you can, submunition the squad closest to yarrick each round with what you can. Then, take as many missile pods as humanly possible with all the other suits you'll have.

Cheers!

If your ally is taking Farsight your army doesn't have to have the same restrictions. If IG and Korne can ally than Farsight and Shadowsun can ally. So your ally should take the seven samurai list and you should have a stealth heavy with some fusions in there and go character hunting. Infiltrate behind enemy lines and fusion the character. Yarick will be especially weak as he has T3 (or is it 4?) either way it's instant death and then victory.

Of course you could do it all fluffy like and have maxed Pathfinder squads and Stealth Suits sneak around and call in seeker missile strikes, but winning is fun too.

Alternatively you could just fly a pirhana to point blank range and fusion either in the face.
Neither one is imune to instant deat I don't think?
You could even possibly pull kharn away with the Blood rage to isolate him.

BLAST korne away shoot everything at them blow them into oblivion. that how you take on knorne. on the charge in blood frenzy a full unit of Berserker's can muster ruffly 40+ attacks. Blast them away.

Default Re: Needs help making an army.

i had this list suggested for us and would think if it is suitable for the purpose

commander farsite
7 body guard
w/burst cannons
cyclic ion blasters
multi trackers


yes indeed this is a really really really big points but as i no my guard friend tends to rather take shed loads of infantry and each of these suits gets 8 shots out of them a turn and kills a guard instantly as he doesn't take carpace armour either so it will kill guard instantly. In our game we can use the deep strike rule and i was thinking the khorne will set up on one side and guard on the other so we will wait for the khorne to charge in (or get shot down hopfully) and then deep strike him behind the guard. this does make farsite an easy target but he has been known (from my experience) to be able to charge a bloodthirster and win the combat losing only 1 wound (lucky dice )

elites
3 crisis suits
fusion blasters
missile pod
multi trackers


general role deep strike behind enemy tanks and blowing them to hell and killing men after this is done

6 stealth suits


general harass unit neither the khorne or the guard player no what these can do so keeping them in cover whilst using the stealth Field is a good way to play these in my opinion

troops
12 fire warriors *4


these are to generally kill infantry that come close to us just as they are meant to be used :P

fast attack
8 path finders with devil fish


used for marking enemy infantry so the fire warriors need 2's to hit that squad

3 broadsides
target lock


used to kill enemy tanks as well target lock so they can fire on separate tanks

hammer head
rail gun
two burst cannons
multi tracker


tank hunting machine :P

1996

what do you guys think comment ans criticism please
