First, Sniper drones. Second, broadsides OR vespid. Third, pathfinders. Lastly, more Fire warriors.

No tanks? Go play another army. But seriously, Broadsides will be a must in that case.

$35

Then I would go probably with some more fire warriors, and a crisis suit.

$35
$20

= $~99 after tax. If you want, a sniper drone team can replace that broadside, as it will play a similar role, and has 2d6 +str against vehicles.

no, it doesn't. Where the hell did you pull that from?

[hr]

1 Crisis Suit (to use as HQ)
2 Boxes of FW

This is if you haven't already got the basics.
If you have...

Sniper Drone Box
Stealthsuit Box
Crisis Suit Box

That would give you a good range of units for dealing with a variety of enemies.

Ok, after that I'm sure I'm wrong, but I thought the rulebook said that Sniper Rifles get 2d6 penetration.
I probably just misinterpreted the sentence. Maybe we can clarify that as a side note of this thread.
A battleforce will run exactly $100 at a 10% tax rate.

No, you interpreted it just fine, it's just that Sniper Drones have Rail rifles, not sniper rifles. The standard sniper rifles get 2d6 pretty much so they can have a chance to damage a vehicle (as they have no strength). Rail rifles, however,already have strength, and lots of it. Rail rifles only get 1d6 for armor penetration, just like any other normal weapon.

Battleforce comes with a devilfish and kroot, which isn't what he wants.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

But anyways, what do you have so far? Ziltch? Can you get a discount? U.S. or Canadian? Something more then "TELL ME WHAT TO BUY" is need to get good advice.

$100 won't get you much if you buy individually. If starting from scratch one XV8 and 2 boxes of FWs will already rack you up to $90 (assuming your buying at retail price). For that I'd rater buy the battle force as your just trading one box of FWs for one box of Kroot, a devilfish, and 3 Stealth suits (because it already comes with an XV8 and box of FWs).

If you already have some Tau stuff, then let us know so we can let you know just what exactly your Tau army is missing.
