Thats a nice list though i don't favor the stealth suits so simply put adding more of the same will probably suit you make your xv8 teams 3 man teams (maybe with a targeting array for the leader) and consider adding gun drones to the fusion blaster plasma rifle team if only for the extra wounds two more broadsides and a third devilfish same set up.

personally i'd get rid of the stealth team for another xv8 team but that's up to yourself and maybe a hmmaerhead of some type points permitting and i would also suggest shield drones for the broadsides.

i'd say get rid of ur stealth suits and get some more broadsides so that ur army stays mobile or get some pathfinders

yeah pathfinders are good and you spread the cost of the transport they come with by "setting up" your pathfinders then using their transport to ferry a group of your fire warriors since you like using fire warriors in transports you could even do this twice if you like and make your army very point efficient.

yeah but this guy can use that to his advantage considering his play style and thankfully it's not a dedicated transport so other units can use it realistically once you set your pathfinders in some cover usually in the middle of the board your unlikely to move them.

yeah it depends on your playstyle but this guy seems to like using scoring transports so it should be compatible and it doesn't specifically say anywhere in the tau codex that the pathfinder transport is dedicated and i've seen this tactic commonly used in fact everyone i've seen using pathfinders do this if only for their compulsory unit of fire warriors i'm not a ref or anything and i'm only new but i see no problem with it.

right OK let me get this.

2 more broadside suits. with or with out plasma rifles as i have one with so far. fire warrior squad and pathfinders with fish. The fish is used for the extra fire warrior squad. should be able to do that in 600 pts. i like using stealth suits so not sure about changing them.

if the points are there mite change for battle suits.

like the idea of shield drones on the broadside teams. 2 teams of 2 with team leader hw drone controller 2 shield drones. would it be better at that point to bonded the unit as i know drones count for model numbers?
