Default Battleforce old or new?


i recently bought an old white dwarf magazine off ebay cause it had some Tau stuff in it.
I think it was from when Tau came out or something, but there was a pic of the battleforce different to the current one (the one i have) and i was just wondering why they made the change?
and what would people prefer:

6 gun drones
2 crisis suits


1 devilfish
3 stealth suits
1 marker drone

Personally i'm not too bothered about the gun drones, but i would much have preferred the extra 2 crisis suits to the devilfish & stealth suits.

Given the Nature of 5th, the devilfish is very helpful. However 2 Crisis suits in the current Battleforce would be nice, not over powered.

Well, at least theirs enough units in it to make a legal army list. I recall during the apocaolypse release a tau "army" was released and had no crisis suits in it!

I think a devilfish came with the old battleforce, along with 14 kroot, three crisis suits,6 gun drones, and 12 firewarriors.

Probably to promote the new, at the time of the changeover, plastic Stealth Suits (and Marker Drone).
