So, this is an army list for my bro based on the battalion box.
lvl2 Skink Priest w/ Diadem of Power
20 Saurus Warriors w/ Full Command
12 Skinks w/ Full Command
10 Temple Guard w/ Full Command
6 Cold One Riders w/ Full Command and Plaque of Dominion
Total - 962
What do you think? What can he use to fill it out? He cannot have any more Special, he already has 50% of his army there.

Tau Empire: We never stop hiding from you
only suggestion I have would be to bulk the skinks out with one more box to as close to the 1k as you can get
The saurus seem fine. Though with no character in the unit to protect, you could look at dropping the unit champion to save points.
I would drop the command from the skinks and use then as skink skirmishers with blowpipes. (but then i supose it could be risky as you have nowhere for your priest to sit in.)
Drop the unit championin the Cold One Riders. Its not worth the extra points for the extra attack, and theres no character in the unit where you will need to use a unit champion to accept challenges on his behalf to protect him.
For now... i would not use the temple guard until you can field a bigger unit. Arguably 10 of them can be devestating if used right in small games sue to the 15 S5 attacks you can pump out, but they are better 6 wide (simply for the extra attacks), and normal saurus can easily take up that role for now. If anything, and if you have the points left over, use one of the TG models as a Scar-vet with great weapon just to slot cheaply into the saurus for a bit more killy power. If you must take TG then once again drop the unit champion, and the standard, and try to use them in cohession with the Saurus block so they can benifit from the Saurus's standard (you only get the benifit once per standard in a combat).
Saving points like this will allow you to field more troops. It may be worth having 2 blocks of saurus if they can be fitted in. Even a unit of 15. Another unit of skirmishers ontop of the one iv sugested could also be a possibility.
