    Doom isnt really needed here seeing as how you will wound on 3's almost all the time, i would drop it for fortune

    for the 5 points less you could get a falcon with 2 shuricannons spirit stones and holofields which is a better buy since if your prism cannon gets knocked off you're pretty much screwed especially with only 1 tank on the field aside from the serp which now has an AV option meaning now the tau player will have to make a tough choice on which tank to shoot at.

    With the word cityfight in mind, I'll also make a few suggestions. The guqrdians should have a shurikan cannon as opposed to a scatter laser. The reason is that the scatter laser is a heavy weapon, and the shurikan cannons isn't. Heavy weapons are fine when you have nice clear fields of fire, but they are almost non existent in a cityfight scenario. I second the thing about swapping doom for fortune. And id you have the falcon, it would likely be a better buy as opposed to a fire prism. Range in cityfight isn't as important as sheer firepower.

    Not bad, I myself would be tempted to drop the serpent but I suppose it makes sense to have at least one other vehicle. I agree that a Falcon would be nice, but some other anti-tank would be better (EMLs are perfect against Tau, anti-infantry after vehicles are gone). He shouldn't have bothered giving his Kroot a save (or shaper) as every time I've faced or seen them they've died, and when in more numbers. I beat and killed 30 of them when they had Hounds and a shaper using a SM captain (2 wound kind) with a PF and an apothecary. Then I beat another 30 (without Hounds but with shaper) using Eldrad and two Warlocks. In both cases they ran and either went off the board or didn't regroup before the end of the game. Though I've killed Kroot other times using guns, as such I suggest not ignoring them but not overestimating them.

    The Scorps do need infiltrate, but with regards to the Avengers either give the Seer either Guide or Fortune. You could swap him for an Autarch though to give them a power weapon for after they use bladestorm (If anything's still alive).

    @ Original Poster

    I would take out a scorpion and replace it with a Scorpion Claw for the Exarch, giving them Shadowstrike.

    And maybe instead of the wave serpent, I would take another Scorpion Squad with Claw+Stalker+Shadowstrike.

    Note, ALWAYS dart inbetween buildings for cover if you're scared of armour piercing and line of sight, which Tau need desperately to shoot. From what ive read, You can hide behind a few inches of wall and be perfectly safe from tau shooting.

    I would drop the Fire Prism for either Distort Cannon Heavy Weapon platforms, vypers, or even another scorpion squad with claw+stalker+shadowstrike.

    Id imagine Scorpions reign supreme in Cityfight, as its essentially a concrete jungle.
