Default What is the best Tau Kill-Team?

I have been trying so many different units from kroot mercinaries to pathfinders, but i break to many of the kill-team rules!!
Can somebody please tell me an ideal unit(s) or models to use as a kill team??

Unfortunatly I still can't make a good kill team (I was never good at army lists :'()
Can someone make me a quick team out of the following stuff? Please?
-12 firewarriors
-16 kroot
-1 pathfinder Shas'ui
-3 regular pathfinders (no r.r's)
-6 gun drones
-1 shield drone
I have a kill team game this Sat. and I need a list quick.
(and yes I am getting a few more P.finders but not untill after the game)

The best Kill Team are quite obviously the Fire Warrior Disruption Teams.

See for yourself:
http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=8707.0

Yes, I know I made it up, but the entire point of it was to have a more "elite" feel to it. You can have a "sniper" with the Rail Rifle, the "heavy weapons guy" with the Burst Cannon, the "scout" with the Markerlight, and of course "the Sarge" as the Shas'ui. All in all, I think a fun prospect to play. As to points, I think that they're fairly priced. if you kitted the Disruption Team out to the absolute maximum, then you would have a unit exceeding 200 points. well, if anyone wants to playtest them for me, go ahead. Just be sure to get back with me on that.

Default Re: What is the best Tau Kill-Team?

I was just wondering. has anyone ever tried out a farsight enclave Kill Team? The points normally left over after kitting out a FW team could be spent on the Ork Fighter upgrade. 8 FWs for 80 points, Ork Fighter +40 leaves 30 points for a Shas'ui, photon grenades, and maybe a controller and drone, or markerlight and target lock. I'd probably swap out a few of the pulse rifles for carbines too. What do you think?
I'm not saying I'd use it because I've got some pathfinders with Railrifles
