umm, get a codex eh, gun drones come in 8's max, HH's must have a support weapon, and bodyguards are bad, 12 FW in a fish if youre taking one and what points does that come to?

you need the codex if you cant remember the points costs and you need the points to make the army properly :P

next!

I think it could be an interesting list, but I think the lack of reliably anti-tank will leave the army too vulnerable. Kroot Guns and close range Fusions Blasters and a single Ion Cannon are hardly enough for this point level, to take down a single iron beast with higher armour (the 13 and 14 ranges).

Repost with your codex soon and we'll see more

there are no upgrades n the tanks and the 'O will die very quickly, he doesnt benefit from Ic so a lot of the plasma will be concentrated on the "uber HQ" and there goes 1/2 your AT, add to that the HH cant move fast and fire without the MT you have virtually 0 useable At in there.

add to that the fact that krootox are one of the worst things, no the worst thing in the Tau list.

I think a majour ovehaul down to the bones would be neccecary, sorry, but its not looking good, we might have to operate

ok, now for my niggles:

#1: bodyguards are really counter productive, better to have a lone 'El and switch the points to 3 Elite suits in fireknife.

#2: Ml on stealths..... no, get Pf if you want ML, its really not good on stealths, just have 6 man squads instead.

#3: 20 kroot was good, but shapers are over priced and not worth their points, drop them.

#4: you dont want so many upgrades on the FW fish, drop the DL, they'll be too close for it and drop the TA or get an MT, you need to be moving more than 6"

#5: the HH wants an MT, otherwise it cant move 6"+ and fire, bad juju.

apart from all that its fine ;D, that and it lacks a lot of AT, I'd suggest trading a stealth squad or a crisis squad in for another Railhead
