    new to tau 1000pt list

    Ive only just decided to collect tau, so sorry if this list is a bit rubbish. Ive read over the sticky threads and other peoples army lists which helped a hell of alot, so cheers guys.
    Right, to the list:

    HQ

    shas'el commander FB PR HWMT TA (97)
    standard helios commander... run around kill stuff etc.

    ELITES

    6 stealth suits (180)
    tie up squads with BC + take fire off xv8

    2x deathrain xv8 TA (106)

    2x fireknife xv8 (134)

    FAST ATTACK

    piranha FB TA (70)
    vehicle hunting piranha,is it worth getting smart missiles?

    5 gun drones (60)
    good for tying up squads in combat whcih get to close, and for protecting commander

    TROOPS

    2x 12 firewarriors Leader ML (240)
    have to have them

    HEAVY SUPPORT

    Railhead BC DC MT (170)
    ok here im stumped, without this railhead i have 300 points for heavy support, what would be most effective?

    Cheers in advance everyone, i know LO is so helpful for.... well everything to do with warhammer really.

    :happy: Doug

    ok, as no ones answering, what about an ionhead and 2 broadside, can fit under 300 pts, but is more specialised than a hammer head....

    anyways.... please c+c

    Great leader, use the drones to shield him and make use of his IC status. I field exactly the same with a squad of 8 drones in a circle around him, and it works great.

    Excellent, best way to field stealths.

    What do these guys have? 2x Plasma/Missile/multitracker with a Teamleader with target lock? But great choice.

    Can a piranha even have smart missiles? Or are you talking about seekers? Seekers are pretty useful, but unless you have some spare points, id just leave them out.

    Great! I love gun drones, and never have a game without them. They have many uses. Although, if you are planing on using these to protect your commander, id try to find some points to have a full squad, otherwise the squad will die to quickly, and leave your commander as a sitting duck.

    The leaders need target locks. If you fire with the markerlight, then the rest of your squad has to shoot at them as well.

    I dont understand how you get 300 points by taking out the hammerhead? The HH is 170, not 300. Id keep this hammerhead, you need some anti tank in the form of railguns. But be warned, as this is your only vehicle pretty much (apart from the piranha) this tank will take 99% of the enemies anti tank fire.

    what is DC? The hammerhead without these "DC" is only 160 points. Give it decoys, is that what you meant?

    Anywho, overall I think your list is pretty good. It should do well if you use it right. Id consider swapping the stealth team for another Railhead.

    Cool thanks for the feedback. Without the heavy support choice i have about 300pts left to spend. So i need a heavy support choice. The railhead was just an idea....
    anyways, more C+C appreciated
