Well first off welcome to Tauonline.

Before starting with the helping. I strongly recommend you go through our rules (especially the part about proper posting) in order to have a fun enjoyable time here.

Second, it will be our pleasure to help you. Just give us a listing of what you have model-wise and we will help you construct a list and answer your questions.

By before starting do you own the 5th edition rulebook and the tau Empire codex? If not then this would be the first thing you should do to familiarise yourself with the new rule set.

^^^ Spelling and grammar and all that proper punctuation stuff isn't a bad start either though
[hr]

Seriously though; reading Battle Reports can be a good way to go for a bit of "feeling out" the current situation.

List wise I think you should probably get more Crisis suits, they're pretty much our MVP unit at the moment. If you had access to the Forgeworld rules and models some XV9s wouldn't go amiss. I really want to snag a few myself...


--> More Troops choices are important because 5th edition is Objective oriented and only Troops can capture Objectives. You should probably get a squad of Kroot or more Fire Warriors as well...

First thing first.

Read over you codex again and buy/borrow a rulebook to get a fell of the new ruleset.

You pretty much have a serious Mech list here, but it will need some improvement.

3 hammerhead ok.
8 fire warriors per devilfish is good
2 stealthsuit is not legal, you need 3rd one minimum.
The crisis suit must be your mandatory HQ choice.

In 5th edition you will need more suit and more fire warrior in devilfish (troops are the only unit that can hold objectives) as well as pathfinder.
