Default Need help with deciding what crisis suit config to use for my army.

Okay so basically i have my army list almost ready but i sorta need you guys to help me decide on my suit configuration. I'm looking for suits with more specialized configurations instead of fireknife.

I'm playing mobile tau, trying to make everything sorta mesh with a purpose and style.

Optional is using stealthies with spamming Burst cannons for anti troop

HQ - Shas'O (Thinking of going aurora with this one)

Troops - 8x Firewarrior (1 shasui w/ BK) (+Fish with drones)
8x Firewarrior (1 shasui w/ BK) (Pathfinder Fish (drones) added here in deployment)
8x Firewarrior (1 shasui w/ BK)
10x Kroot Carnie / 10x Hounds

Elite - 3x Crisis ???
3x Crisis ???

Heavy - Railhead (Burst Cannon)
Railhead (Burst Cannon)

Fast - 6x Pathfinders

You seem to have almost no Strength 6/7 weapons in your army, so decision is easy - Deathrains. Loads and loads of them... ;D

Aurora Commander without question.

One Deathrain team whatever your facing, and then the second team as a helios if your facing Meq/Teq and/or tanks.

Alternatively, move 2 of the suits to your commanders bodyguards as Helios, and DS a single Sunforge suit with a Shield Gen in behind a Tank or MC.

You may want to consider magnetizing your suits. It would allow you to try out different things easily.

Anyway, I'd agree with the above posts. Helios, Deathrains, and Auroras are pretty effective as well as high strength/ap.

thanks all,

i have an alternative to using magnets. I use a sort of temporary sticky stuff that they use to adhere credit cards to glossy paper. yaknow those little strips that are kinda gummy? Yeah they work great if you cut them down to a width of about a mm

Break your Crisis Suits into teams of 2, it saves on points because you don't need the Team Leader, and it allows you more versatility. I would go with 2 squads of Deathrain and one team of Helios or TL PR if you want maximum accuracy.

If you just insist on taking two teams of 3, then I would go one Deathrain and one Helios. Deathrain can pop medium infantry/MCs/Light Armor while the Helios can target MCs or 2/3+ save.
