Default Things You Think ROCK about the Tau

This thread is for exactly what the title says, state things you think ROCK about the Tau. Things that, when you use them, are just like "Holy shit, that ****ing ROCKED!" in your mind. I'll start. I have three. Feel free to repeat if I/someone else mentions it.
  • Deathrain XV8 - Base model (T-L Missile Pods, Blacksun Filter = 46 pts) - of course, owns AV10-11 tanks like nobody's business. Now, I knew the MP was good, but then I finally (took me a couple years) took the advice of the forums and put a single base Deathrain into my 1000 pts list. Took down a Landspeeder and saved my Kroot for the next turn. It was just like, "Wow, that was awesome." It almost took down a Rhino too, but I wasn't quite in position for that.
  • T-L Plasma Rifles on Broadsides - This SO saved my ass in the same game as above. My opponent Deep Striked 5 Termies right into my lines. Fortunately, I didn't have to move to Rapid Fire, so I took out two Termies with two shots from the PR. Ownzered.
  • Kroot - I take 20 Carnivores with 7 Hounds and a Shaper in my 1000 pts list, comes to 203 - put'em in forest, and they're nigh-invincable. Unless they get hit with a flamer, than it's bird barbecue. But besides that, 27 models that own just about any other infantry model in the game? They haven't done anything spectacular yet, but I'm just relearning how to use them. I'm sure once I get a better grasp of their tactics, they will prove themselves easily.

When you place down 10 Skimmers and there face is in shock. Isn't as effective as it used to be...

One of my firewarriors beat down a genestealer, that was awesome. We were playing loose formation and the lone genestealer hit my lone firewarrior. Sure enough, he smacked that beast with his pulse rifle.

One word. Battlesuits.

I love these things to death. No matter what points level I play I'll take a squad of them. Good models and a great punch give this unit its place in my army.

Six boxes of Kroot Carnivores: 210 dollars

Six blisters of Shapers: 60 dollars

Thirty-six blisters of Kroot hounds: 360 dollars

Six boxes of Stealth Suit Teams: 120 dollars

Thirty six Gun Drones: Came with everything else in the whole damn army.

Being able to infiltrate 226 models within firing range for less than 2100 points: Priceless.


There are some things money can't buy. Getting your life back from your hobby addiction is one of them.

They may be small things...

1) Stealthsuits

2) Railguns

3) Plamsa guns that don't overheat. (First time I ever played warhammer 40k, I overheated 3 plasma guns a total of 7 times.
