Looks good! No one seems to be using the Important Topics stickies anymore, so it is nice to float a Tactica on the main page now and again.

and kroot and devilfish for that matter ;D its just a matter of finding the time, certianly within this week though.
I may decide to sticky it and not link it in important threads as you are right it doesnt get looked in enough, however that will be a matter for me and RJay to discuss!

I dont' see the FW Shas'ui upgrade as a "no brainer" with an Ethereal in the army too. This saves 10pts per squad and still makes for a real good likelihood of getting the Morale result you want; moreso if you want to fail from close combat and run.

my first 2

Otherwise dead on. Can't wait to read the rest.

Well to be honest you shouldnt be letting your fire warriors into close ocmabt int he first place!

With leadership 7, dont forget there are many possible leadership modifiers, eithe rin combat or for being below 50% strength etc. If you havent bonded your warriors and are tkaing tests at leadership 6 (possibly lower) than you will be wishing you spent a mere 10 points for that extra leadership!

glad you liekd the guide though!

awesome...even if I already downloaded all the stuff there is to download on the tau from this site...lol..

I'd like to see a PDF version of the material...as it'd be easier and cleaner to print, and you could even add images and so on to make it a really cool looking document...
