3 regular crisis suits
1 custom build crisis suit... which is way the hell bigger than he should be but I'm giving him special rules eventually...
2 broadsides, one in for repairs
1 Hammerhead, all configurations 'cept sky-ray
2 devilfish, 1 unbuilt
2 vespids... not squads
8 kroot, sold the rest to a friend who wanted them desprately because he loved the color job I did and the gore I modeled onto them with green stuff.
1 Aun'Shi
1 Shadowsun and drones
1 Aun'Va
8 gun drones
3 path finders
24 Fire Warriors, built
??? left of a 12 FW squad, since I hacked them apart for mod bits, probably going to form the basis of my kill team.
1 Void-Heart Tau Assassin. (my excuse to play a the sniper assassin who's name I've forgotten.)
2 Pirahnas

and also, if I can make good enough grades, A MANTA!!! W00T!!!

plan on expanding with more crisis suits, come stealth suits, more vespids and kroot, and maybe a few more tanks and FW's... can never have enough FW's, I've brought down soooooooo many HQ units and Heros using a constant volley of fire from 2 squads, it's funny seeing a Tyranid Player's reaction when his Carnifex or Tyrant to the basic Tau unit.
Also A sniper team cause I've seen them keep entire Space Marine armies pinned down from turn 2 if they're positioned right and you got enough of them... it's really funny to see the armored guys huddled up behind buildings.

-1 Shas'o Commander
-11 Crisis Suits, which can be assembled to any configuration. About 1/3 of these are marked as Shas'vre.
-30ish Kroot
-About 16 Kroot hounds, most of which were converted from Tyranids.
-24 Fire Warriors
-1 Devilfish
-1 Hammerhead, with burst cannons. Either main weapon can be equipped.
-27 Gun/Shield drones, depending on whether I attach their carbines or not. ^^;;
-1 Piranha w/fusion blaster.
-Sniper Team
-1 Broadside
