Default Ninja Tau Tactics Question

I am trying to decide if the ninja tactics will work effectively without the pathfinder devilfish. In your exp. or opinions do you think that going without it would make much of a difference?

Its just a preference thing. I like it because it guides in the deepstrikes a bit better, but really it makes very little difference as long as you are willing to play a little bit safer with where you are dropping your suits (I like to drop in real close ;D). It usually gets blown up by turn 3 anyways, so really its only useful for the first deepstrike or two anyways (it weathers a whole lot of fire power during turn 1 and 2).

I would not try to deepstrike anything without a pathfinder fish. If I DS something, and it's possible to have it go badly, it does. Additionally my list almost always includes pathfinders for their markerlight support unless it's a very small game.
