    Fisrt tau list- 1500

    Hey guys, this is my first list for tau so its probaly not that good but any comments/critsism are welcome so here its is:

    shas'el- plasma rifle, missile pod, target array, hard wired multi tracker- 97

    shas'el- plasma rifle, missile pod, target array, hard wired multi tracker- 97

    3 crisis suits- shas'ui w/ missile pod, plasma rifle- target array, hard wired target lock -216
    3 crisis suits- 216
    3 crisis suits- 216

    10 fire warriors- 100
    10 fire warriors- 100
    10 fire warriors- 100
    10 kroot, 5 hounds -100

    2 hammerheads- 280

    The tactics would be for the suits to go on the flanks and use there jump packs to hide behind terrain jump out, you know the drill, then the tau fire warriors to set up a static fire base and pound fire away, the kroot then set up infront to create a screen and force target prority tests, while the hammerheads pound away at the enemy. The total is 1527 and I to want shave some points off to spend on the hammerheads so any ideas on where to lose some points? Thanks in advance for an help and will rep8Y,

    Gilli

    To tell yo the truth, I like it now. If you want some points then maybe lose the Hounds and use the Kroot as 10 Fire Warriors that can Infiltrate.

    Great setup, nothing wrong here at all. Pretty much same as id use. Good job.

    Here is where I got lost. First off, only team leader and Shas' Vre crisis suits may select equipment from the armoury, and, as these are all Shas' Ui, none of them can have HW target Locks. Secondly, in order to be able to shoot both weapons, youll need multitrackers, targetting arrays are good and all, but the versatility and chance to fire both weapons is more beneficial IMO. Consider this setup:
    Crisis Team
    2x Shas'Ui with Plasma/Missile Pod, Multitrackers
    1x Team Leader with Plasma/Missile Pod, Targetting Array, HW Multitracker
    = 201 points
    This saves you 15 points each squad, and you can now fire both the Plasma and missile at the same time, plus the team leader can do it as well but with better accuracy.

    Also consider swapping one squad for a Deathrain squad (TL Missile pod, targetting array) for some very accurate light/medium tank and transport killer. A full Deathrain squad is only 159 points for 3 suits with TL missiles and targetting array (also saves you points).

    Id try and find points for a Shas'Ui and bonding knife for each squad if they are going to be a static firebase. Less chance you will lose a squad to incoming fire.

    The kroot squad is great, should work well.

    Whats on the hammerheads? Judging by the points, id say its only armed with rail guns? youll only need about 25 points each hammerhead to give it the basics (burst cannon, multitracker and decoys). Without multitracker and decoys, hammerheads go down like a sack of potatoes. Always keep them moving and firing.

    Ok so in the end, this is the list id suggest, staying as close as possible to your original setup.

    ELITES

    Crisis Team
    2x Shas'Ui with Plasma/Missile Pod, Multitrackers
    1x Team Leader with Plasma/Missile Pod, Targetting Array, HW Multitracker
    = 201 points

    Crisis Team
    2x Shas'Ui with Plasma/Missile Pod, Multitrackers
    1x Team Leader with Plasma/Missile Pod, Targetting Array, HW Multitracker
    = 201 points

    Crisis Team
    3x Shas'Ui with TL Missile Pods, Targetting Arrays
    = 159 points

    TROOPS

    Firewarrior Team (
    Shas' Ui with Bonding Knife
    = 95 points

    Firewarrior Team (
    Shas' Ui with Bonding Knife
    = 95 points

    Firewarrior Team (
    Shas' Ui with Bonding Knife
    = 95 points

    Kroot Squad
    10 kroot, 5 hounds
    = 100 points

    HEAVY SUPPORT

    Hammerhead
    Railgun, burst cannons, multitracker, decoy launchers
    = 165 points

    Hammerhead
    Railgun, burst cannons, multitracker, decoy launchers
    = 165 points

    Which in total equals about 1470 points, leaving you 30 points to muck around with. Possibly throw in some more firewarriors, or give the Crisis team leaders HW target locks for some more possibly targets, its up to you.

    Anyways, hope this helped, good luck and peace out! :happy:
