Default Your play style in few words

I played a list yesterday that somebody, who might even have been me, referred to as "Kroots and Suits". In an attack of boredom I tried to come up with other stupid catchphrases for tau army styles, which naturally led to this poll. Choose up to three that describe the kind of army you like to run. If you come up with another good bad catchphrase, let me know and I'll add it.

Options don't seem to work right, also my army type is missing XD

Farsight, Mix and Match I got suits, stealth, snipers, pathfinders broadsides a hammerhead, all in all most of my 0-1 Stuff is present in my army
Also Large Volumes of Firewarriors.

I was Heavy Metal & Kroots 'n' Suits.

That is:
- I'm almost always a large well spread force.
- Typically two (rail) hammerheads and a Skyray is my preferred force (even if the 3 Railhead is 'superior' in my ability to use it, I prefer havin' a skyray along)
- Usually two nice sized Crisis teams, an HQ with Bodyguard and a freestyle HQ.
- A few Firewarriors (no more than 36 in large games), often at least one small squad with carbines & grenades.
- Usually two squads of Kroot my true 'staple', often with a few Krootox thrown in. My true utility squads who're used in loosely the same way I use tactical marines! (but in cover, of course!)

That is: I enjoy a varied force, good heavy support, but plenty of mobile and ubiquotus stuff too. I like to have options, first and foremost!

Because I didn't think of a stupid catchphrase for it? I guess since kroot are so much cheaper than suits, you can call it kroots n suits. Most of the points will be in suits anyway.

I chose, Mobile Metal, Suits'n'Kroot and Tau Horde.

I play a Hybrid list that combines static units with highly mobile ones. I usually take two squads of kroot and three full squads of fire warriors (two in fish), and I always have two hammer heads. One Ion and one Rail. I also usually have two units of crisis on the table.

Those three seemed like the best ones suited for me, a little bit of everything.

What about Suits and Firewarriors? Stealths, Crisis and Firewarriors is the way to go. I haven't gotten to field pathfinders yet, but I've found that firewarriors can provide a few markerlights for relatively low cost. I do have a Warfish that I've used quite a bit. But what does that make me?

In my 2000 point army I tend to have a lot of vehicles, markerlights and suits with a health sprinkling of Kroot.
At that point level my pathfinders help out by enabling my take all comers list have flexibility to hammer at what ever comes in my way.
I also have a large focus on vehicles (3-2 hammer heads, 2-3 devilfish) and crisis suits (easily 5-7 suits) to let me be mobile and still focus my firepower. I also use my Kroot as a static firebase, something I can maneuver around and also a cheap objective claimer. No one at my store really belives me when I say point for point Kroot are better at taking down space marines by shooting but they been a useful unit for me 9 games out of 10.
