Default Need help with a Farsight Enclave

Hey, i've been playing tau for a couple years, and i recently switched to orcs. I realized, after building a game board, that it would be really good fluff if i would have my orc army and a farsight army as a rival to it, and i could model extra stuff on the board accordingly. Thing is, i actually want to take this Farsight Enclave army seriously, so, i need some tips for the army. My only real limitations is that it has to be as mobile as posible and be very heavy in crisis suit teams. The army will only be about 1.5K to 2K points at the very most.
Thanks in advance for the help,
~~Privateryann~~

You seem to have answered your own questions- your only limitations are mobility and crisis suits- so build a list accordingly.

Put an emphasis on vehicles so they can flank and keep up with your crisis teams. Definitely take pathfinders to maximize your suits fire and use FoF to keep your flankers backed up by strong Fire warrior units.

Hope that helps.

Lots of Devilfish, put every firewarrior team in a devilfish. I'd say that you should go with the 7 samurai approach maximizing the crisis suits in his team but suit them up with some hardwired target locks. If you're taking any of his 0-1 units(of which most of them are) maximize the amount of them, say if you take broadsides take the full unit of three, if you take pathfinders take all 8 of them, and if you take a hammerhead, make sure you give it the necessary upgrades to make it survivable.



I guess to sum him up, use his restrictions to their full potential, and keep in mind that you can pour a huge chunk of points into his HQ, and since he doesn't count as towards the 1+ commander requirement, you have to take a shas'o or 'el.

That's my best advice for a farsight army.
