far too many points sunk into suits IMO, they are very fragile in such low points, I'd go for something much more stable like :

Fish Squad
-12FW
-Shas'Ui
-Devilfish
-DL

17 Kroot

2 Hounds

Crisis
-TLFB
-MT

its got AT, marine killing mass and swarms dont stand a chance.

I'm tyring to avoid using Kroots.

From what I've read, they are a decent/worthy force in an army.

But I only want this army for a laugh, but I still want to get the best I can out of a pure Tau force.

(thanks for the reply tho)

well read the rules over for 40/40 again and you will find your original list is illegal!

If this is for fun you will have more fun with a devilfish squad of fire warrirors zoomng around, rather than two static ones i expect! 40/40 is the perfect game for testing things out seeing as it takes no time at all. Therefore keep rotating a list and play as much as you can until you find one that you like!

What 'part' is it illegal? (I don't own the rule book)

I think the problem is that the 40/40 matches I saw were on the floor on a rather small area.

you can't, for instance, have any characters with 3 or more wounds or a 2+ save

-Shas'Ui
-Devilfish
-DL

Fish
-10FW

or sub one team for 6 pathfinders and 2 seekers if you anticipate lots of tanks

Because of never played a real game of 40k yet, to me Devilfishes in that sense will just be nice big targets for people. Am I wrong? I know with Seekers they can do some damage, but I also feel Pathfinders might be waster in 40/40

(I am new, so if I'm way off feel free to yell at me)

I realise now I can't have the Shas'el because it has too many wounds.

I now have a copy of the rules.

Someone on the GW forum advized me to use Stealths instead....

I was worried about going with Stealth, because I'm a beginner I'm concerned I wouldn't be able to use them efficently.

For small games such as 40/40 i wouldn't use 2 crisis suits. Stealth suits are a good Idea but you could only have a few. 3 suits for 90 pts. would be a good anti-troop unit.
