    When you go past 1000pts get more crisis + stealthsuits :lol:

    I cant really suggest much, i wouldnt put Carbines in FW squads unless i planned to get them in for hit + run attacks with a devilfish.

    Maybe drop the Kroot and some Gun Drones for another FW Squad 12 isnt enough, i have 36 and will prolly buy more :lol:.

    "Shooty" Tau? What, are there "Stabby" Tau now or something? I thought there was only one kind of Tau... :rolleyes:

    Anyways, you need more Fire Warriors. Too many Tau players are obsessed with having "big toys." Drop some Broadsides (although I&#39;m not sure how many you have, but I do know that they are unnecesary to begin with,) the Ethereal (empty points,) and change the Stealth Suits to even more Fire Warriors (12 models instead of 4.) The Tau can&#39;t consistantly win with just thier range, they need numbers as well to take enemy fire. Without Fire Warriors, all that&#39;s there are big expensive targets.
