    i think you messed your math, cos this seems mucho small. if not, you have too many upgrades.

    in my 1500 pt army i have 24 fw, 6 crisis suits, an etheral, 5 stealth suits, 3 broadsides and a hammerhead and either 20 kroot, or some pathfinders.

    who are your main opponenets? with lack of heavy support and crisis suits, with a reliance on FW it appears you will be playing nids, maybe orks.

    if not, you are in trouble, against IG, too many big tanks, you only got the 1 railgun which can hurt them.

    necrons, sm and csm. not enough big guns/plasma guns

    etc etc.

    even if the math is right, (seriously) add broadsides and generally kroot. i find pathfinders overpriced and underproductive, especially with the rail rifles. all those points, to basically kill 3 marines a turn... and with 8 seeker missiles, if they die you are in trouble.

    how the hell is this CC related. . . . . dude, Dark Eldar warriors and Guardians could take you. . . .

    Dear Infrazael Draennonssraav please read the post before adding a reply, he clearly wrote :

    Now about the list:
    - Too much points spent on firewarriors, give their gundrones to the stealth suits (free stealth ability, can use full movement).
    - Lose the markerlight on the stealthsuits (heavy weapons, can&#39;t move and shoot).
    - Get more stealth suits (about 12).
    (OK, I love stealth suits, I really do)
    - You only have one shot that can take out armour, thats is not enough.
    - Loose the pathfinders, after shooting the seekers their markerlights have little use (not many big guns to support), leave them home if you play less then 2500 points.
    - No Crisis suits (exept commander) and no Broadsides => A bit crazy but okay.

    You definatly did the math wrong. How the hell did you get 240 points on that Hammerhead? Looking at the codex, it should cost 220...
    I&#39;m sure there are other errors....
    Another thing, why a Target Lock on the Devilfish? It only has one gun...
    Ditch the Drones on your Independant Characters. It makes them more vulnerable because they count as a unit. Maybe under 4th ed, but we don&#39;t know yet...
    I usually don&#39;t promote any of my elites above Team Leader, saves 5 points for equal access to the Armory...

    An all close combat Tau army sounds good. but you are forgetting one thing. TAU ARE TERRIBLE AT CLOSE COMBAT. The only reason people have trouble with tau is because of there really cool guns.
    Destruction is the work of an afternoon. Creation is the work of a lifetime.

    Well he was being a Dumbass lying in the first place though wasnt he? You tell the truth on these forums and if I see anyone complaining that people havnt noticed the lies, for gods sake, the title is more important than a badly punctuated sentance. Y&#39;know what annoyed me about this? Some " people " said they got annoyed about people saying it wasnt CC, well what did the bloody title say? In future, don&#39;t lie about this stuff again.

    Anyway, it seems decent, not that I&#39;ve ever playeed with or played against Tau before apart from in small battles.

    I thought it was clever. As far as your comment about the whole sentence puncuation thing goes...it doesn&#39;t make sense. Are you saying the title IS important or are you saying it&#39;s inconsequential? If you&#39;re going to come to a thread read the whole *****ing thing or don&#39;t bother, title and all. It&#39;s like conversation -- you&#39;re not listening, you&#39;re just waiting for your turn to say something. Just take the time necessary to read the thread, it&#39;s not that long.
