I'm glad you didn't ACCIDENTLY make this a poll like I did on my 2500 pt army list. LOL I'm an idiot.

Anyways back on topic. YOU NEED SOME CRISIS SUITS! defiantly have 6 stealth suits. Rail rifles you should probably get.You don't need another squad of humans.

Sorry I would type a more detailed info post but my parents are calling me to come to dinner!

I would personally go with Rail Rifles.

I myself am a huge fan of Battlesuits. But its nice to see someone trying to go for a true Firewarrior army. Most people will probably say go with some Kroots. I myself like to keep my armies pure Tau.

So in my opinion go with Rail Rifles.

I'm still new with Tau, but markerlights on your Pathfinders would be good and some Seeker Missles.

afraid to sound noobie *shakes of scaredness* but *reads codex* says pathys are pre equiped with marker lights ... and yeah if i save the points (from no stealths/ aux) seekers would be erm... fun?

Okay I'm back

El Luko I can barely read your handwriting!

If you decide to make a 1500 army you should get a few crisis suits. Deepstriking crisis suits with TL fusion blasters will eradicate those pesky basilisks. But for now I would STRONGLY recomend 2 more stealth suits. they SLAUGHTER guard. Rail rifles aren't effective against guard so I would not recomend them as they can only kill 1 guard per turn commpared to a burstcannon killing 3! Imagine 18 bust cannon shots will kill about 7-8 guard! But 3 Rail rifles will usually kill only 2. And you want to kill as many as possible.

drop the humans, one of the BS and use the points spare to change the shas'vre in the stealths to another suit, and get devilfishes w/ DL for all the FW squads, this will give you FoF opportunities and FoF is a very scary thing for guard ;D

You really like FoF don't you dizzy.

I have a question about FoF: When your devilfishes get withen 12" of the enemy and your Firewarriors disembark its counts as if you had moved your Firewarriors right? Do you still get to fire 2 shots at 12" if you had disembarked which counts as moving? Or is it if you move a unit with rapid fire weapons do they only get 1 shot at 12"

this should make it clear why I like it, that and the fact that I'm kind of responsible for a lot of the awareness of it on this site.

it is the best tactic Tau have in their arsenal as it completely eliminates our weakness (bar the odd lucky krak missile which still leaves the fish as cover) and plays on our strengths (S5 Rf 29 shots anyone?)

you get two shots, read the rulebook.
