I voted for the markerlight. I mean sure the suits and railguns are good, but each army has it own equivalent (sorta) But no other army has something like a markerlight. Something that give give almost all of your squads some kinda of adavantage is awesome if you ask me

i voted suits because the are very versatile and can pump out a lot of fire power my second would be the markerlight (not my first since its heavy and not so moblie)

I would have put markerlights, but I realized that without the guns to back it up, markerlights aren't too good.

Priorites first, bring the guns before the targeter.

element of surprise - players are, on average, disproportionately inexperienced at playing against competent tau players.

My favorite advantage?

Kroot.

If these 5th edition rumors pan out, in cover we'll have BS3 bolters with MEQ saves, for half the price of a Marine.

And get to hop into a devilfish for their own 84 point version of a FOF.. with an utter DARE to assault them! Cant wait for THAT! ;D

[apparently dedicated transports are only attached to their unit at the start of the game, and afterwards may transport ANY unit thereafter, within their transporation limitations! YAY! Devilvish TAXIs!! Limitations are spelled out already- like 12 models, no power suit models allowed, so nothing crazy.. but I like the idea of 10 kroot and 2 krootox in a FOF!]

NOBODY expects the tau rail rifle drones!
Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise....
Our two weapons are fear and surprise... and ruthless efficiency....
Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...
and an almost fanatical devotion to the greater good....
Our four... no...
Amongst our weapons... Amongst our weaponry...
are such elements as fear, surprise...
I'll choose another unit...

out of whats there...railguns

my first ever game I took down a land raider with a chaplain and 5 terminators inside...in my first ever railgun shot.... gotta be happy with that =D
