Default Entire Tau Army classed as stealth - its possible !!!

Hi All - new to these forums so lets start with this potential golden nuggett !!!

An entitre Tau army classed as stealth is potentially very much possible !!!

Check out the following Apoc datasheet :

http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_...filtration.pdf

The devilfish optimised for stealth gives any unit within 12" radious the stealth ability - whats more they deepstrike anywhere on board ! So imagine deepstriking your fish next to 9 broadsides - 9 Broadsides on a gaming board with stealth - even Titans would surely fear this - they would not even get close enough - especially if you give them targetting arrays where you will surely score 7 out of 9 hits more often than not !!!

What do you think ? I like it >

That only works in an Apocalypse game - and since most games aren't, it really doesn't matter.

Besides, in Apocalypse games, the worst thing you can do is bunch up in a place - this just screams "template fodder" - and that's basically what every single damn Tau Formation forces you to do...

Well it says any unit Within 12"... Does that mean The unit as a Whole must be or just a model will do... If it's just a Model then 20" or so is quite a Distance Between Squads. Although as Bonesaw said, it's only for Apocalypse.
