I am the proud owner of a shiny new Tau fleet (still shiny 'cuz I've not had a chance to prime it yet!) anyways, I was wondering if any of you guys could fill me in on well, how to use a Tau fleet properly.

Here's the models I have so far.

2 explorers
1 hero
4 orcas
3 messengers
15 defenders

The fleet list I'm planning on using (most games here are played at 1500 pts) is posted below.

Explorer class starship (230 pts)
Vash’Ya configuration

4 Orcas (100)

Hero Starship
Vash’Ya configuration (180)
Kor’El (50)
Aun'O (75)

Escort Squadron:
5 defenders and one messenger (240)

Escort Squadron:
5 defenders and one messenger (240)

Escort Squadron:

Total Points: 1490

While I've got your attention, any suggestions on color schemes? at the moment I'm thinking a dark gray (mostly codex gray) with dabs of red for windows. and finally, does anybody else notice that the command bridge on the explorer and hero models looks like the front end of an orca, less the guns?

Hows about going for a ShadowGrey and SpaceWolvesGrey colour scheme?
