Exclamation So a big order... How to gear them I ask??

I just placed a big ass order for my tau roughly boosting them to about 2k I think... Now all I have is the BF and I don't know how the hell to gear them... Here's what I bought

Now don't tell me I'm stupid for buying something or not just tell he how to best gear them please

TAU XV25 STEALTH ARMOUR 1
TAU XV88 BROADSIDE BATTLE SUIT 3
TAU XV8 CRISIS BATTLE SUIT 3
TAU PATHFINDERS 1
TAU HAMMERHEAD 2
TAU ETHEREAL CASTE 1
TAU CRISIS BATTLESUIT COMMANDER 1
TAU BATTLEFORCE 1
Tau Shield Drone Conversion Kit - Direct Only

My general structure is that the BF's devil is for the paths
My BS just as fire bases
Suits as adaptable peeps
And hammers as boom makers

How can I best achieve this or make it better

Btw I have plenty of extra drones for shield drones conversion!! Yay

Well first and easiest for the long run would be to get some approriate sized magnets (I got 100 off ebay and have not even gone through half as of yet). Use them to make your multi function possible units adaptable so you can switch them around dependent upon opponent composition you are facing. Stealth suits for instance is an easy example, you can only have 1 with a melta out of every three so set up 2 of 3 with burst cannons and then set up each third with a magnet so if going into an armored fight can have a melta or if facing mass hordes of enemy with no vehicles or heavy armors available can equip another burst cannon. Well gotta run, will be on more later.

do the same to the suits ofc. also model your hammerhad with a replaceable turret and chin mount, so it can double as devilfish. do the same to the devilfish in the BF so it can double as ionhead.
if memory serves, the skyray kit includes the hammerhead turrets, and costs the same as a 'head. keep that in mind next time.
you may want to use those spare drones to convert them to marker drones for the stealth suits.

And ones you can drill holes for, basically cylindrical ones with 2mm diameter and 2mm hight, personally, I prefer 1mm overall, but they are tricky to handle.

On ebay just put in (warhammer 40k magnets) and it will pop up options listed/posted under all the armies giving you your best price spread. I got my 100 for like $7.00 with like $2.50 for shipping.

Look for neodym or rare earth magnets.
