I saw a battle, you got to watch out for kroots though due to the lack of CC but I fink you can employ Mercs in a farsight army

you can't actually. alas. check the kroot merc pdf. space marines, sisters of battle, tau, nids and necrons can't hire kroot mercs. and last time i checked, farsight was still classified as a tau......

So, how to deal with a farsight army. pretty easy, as their list is seriously limited, by very handicapping restrictions. Firstly- 1 hammerheads, broadsides, stealths and pathfinders are 0-1. fair enough to the last two-most people only take one anyway. But only1 broadside team, and 1 hammerhead? for tau, its absolutely crippling. beyond that, no kroot, no etherials, or gun drones. pff! to the last two, but no kroot is handicapping.
chances are, his list will be 3 broadsides, one hammerhead, and the rest will be fire warriors, and crisis suits. i'd guess you'll see a more "in your face" attitude, with an assaulty o' shovah unit.

you can easily take out the list. 3 hammerheads. markerlights- FW sushis, or pathfinders. fireknife suits. light his broads and annihalate them! ion cannon on the hammerhead is perfect for taking out expensive suit models. Lots of fire warrior teams again, are as always useful in a variety of fields - killing crisis suits, or other fire warriors. and take kroot! nothing funnier than assaulting tau. kroot happily tear through tau lines.

I just wanted to hear battle reports on it because it sound cool how the out cast goes up against the empire

Now that i think about it i wonder how good the stealth sqaud team would be with the farsight upgrade in CC ?

well, a 210 point squad would get 18 bs3 s5 shots, followed by 18 ws3 i3 s4 attacks. good against guardsmen!
