Default Shas'o configuration

I am making my Shas'o with this configuration:
- cyclic ion blaster
- missile pod
- positional relay
- iridium armour
- hardwired multitracker

total: 142 points

I will not change the CIB and iridium armour choices, but all the rest is optional. Any advice on this configuration?

What do you want o use it for? None of the Tau units can tank real well, but you may want to replace the Positional Relay and the Missile Pod with a VRT and Shield Gen. And slap on some Shield Drones and/or Stims and you have about what's called a Nina'O

Personally though, I l.ke something that can move. Namely something without the Iridium.

There is nice trick with iridium armor.
Give him DC and two shield drones.Now he has 2 drones with +2 save (shield drones get the same save as their owner)
Next step is to join him to squad of other 2 suits , due to majority armor save rule they get +2 save too.
In other words for points spend on iridium armor you are getting 5 models with +2 save.
I run my commander in such setup.
1 # Shas`O Plasma Rifle Drone Controller(2x Shield Drone )Positional Relay Iridium Armor =160
Then join him with :
1 # 2x Shas`Ui Twin Linked Plasma Rifle Targeting Array=130

LD 10 unit with +2/+4 inv saves . Nice punch of blue plasma death.

If you want to keep CIB just make DC-HW and add HW MT , tho he will be quite costy.

Nice setup, but why do you give your Shas'o 2 shield drones instead of 1?

So that the majority of the unit will have a 2+ armor save, thereby conferring it on the two that don't have it naturally.

Actually a fairly ingenious setup; wish I'd thought of it before.

Okay, I understand the 2+ save now, it's because of the majority-rule. But according to that same rule, the shas'o has to take a shield generator to give the entire formation a 4+ inv. save, doesn't it? Or do the shield drones confer this automatically to their controller?

Eh. A persitent enemy could take out that commander fast if he/she wanted too. The invulnerable is nice but I'd rather just be untargetable then highly resilient.

There always comes a point when you can be targeted. Unless you stay in the box.

That is clever!
I'm gonna try it. It sounds particularly effective against things that have few S8 or better guns



100th post woo!

That actually would be pretty interesting to see. Next time i play im gonna make a box. Or other geometric shapes. If you get flanked by your enemy you could still be able to position your commander so that it cant be tareted. Unless your surrounded, but if that happens you might be in a jam. especially if your playing static or hybrid.
