View Full Version : Tau army questions

21-09-2013, 03:50
I just acquired some very cheap tau models on eBay while searching for some marine bits... And was just wondering what would be good to add to the army next. Will be getting the book soon but just after a idea what I'm looking at to hit 1000 pts.

What I have is-
38x warriors
17x kroot
8x crisis suits with weapons all magnetized

Thanks for the help

You definitely need a warlord. I, personally, love shadowsun, but an xv8 commander is the most versatile.

With that many troops, devilfish are a good idea. Broadsides would be nice for AA, if fliers are a concern. Also, who doesn't love a riptide?

It all depends on what type of lists you expect to be facing.

Commander/Fireblade/Ethereal, to taste.




Skyray or Broadsides.

Anything else you want.

That should give you a good number of options.

with so many troops Ethereal will be really good option now. next depends on what kind of game do you want to play. but riptide and/or broadsides has place in many tau lists...

With 8 crisis suits you have a good foundation for a farsight army, 2-3 units of firewarriors for objective defence whilst the suits go cause merry hell.

I recommend a Riptide, they are great looking models with decent rules. A unit of pathfinders will add some synergy to the force.

Anything else would be a matter of taste

Where did all these devils buying winter coats come from? :D
