I think you should combine Farsight and Mach tau. That's what I play.

Mechanized Tau and its cousin: Hybrid Tau! Both work very well!

I play suit based army, I use the suits abbility to duck in and out the max.

I only have the minal troops +1 devil fish.


This army kicks marine ass, but I dont know what to call it.

Hybrid. True 'combined arms' and 'true' Tau !! Multiple Devilfish's look so cool though

As for the Suit army, it's a bit obvious, fluff army I was planning a heavy suit army, D'Yanoi Hostile Environment Expeditionary force. I wrote some fluff somewhere, lost it though.

I dont think you can answer this question. It all depends on the person playing the army. I'm sure any high ranking tau players would tell you that keeping everything in devilfish and not using broadsides and ethereals is the way to go, but it really just depends on how good of a player you are and if you can make slower armies work.

lol...point taken! I assume the majority of people are answering "Hybrid Tau" due to the fact that you can use a wide variety of units and tactics without restrictions... :
