Welcome to Librarium Online!
well hello there i do believe this is my first post here.
so my friend and i were making me a list and decided IT NEEDS MOAR WARFISH. originaly there were 7 but i dropped a FW squad to make room for more anti tank.
and on my war fish i am going to use the upgrade that give the obscured at 12" plus rather than immobilize on glance reroll.
Shas'el fireknife - TA HWMT
2xDeath rain - MT
Fireknife - TA HWMT
3x(11 Fire Warriors+1 Shas'ui
-"Warfish" Devilfish with SMS TA MT DP)
Fast Attack 504
-"Warfish" Devilfish with SMS TA MT DP)
Heavy Support 270
3xBroadside team leader - ASS(HaHA!) HWMT
so yeah sounds like it could be fun feel free to tear it to pieces and what not, though do try and rebuild it =D

I read the title.. loved the idea. Started reading the list.. loved it all. Got to the Fast attack section went. WTF! I don't think you need 3 squads of pathfinders at all mate, maybe 2, but 3 is overkill / uneccessary.
Most people use the fish they have to pay for with their PF's to give to a FW squad also, so you don't really need 3 Fish floating around the place with just a burst cannon... Unless of course your idea is for KP denial in the form of av12 skimmer with cover save?
Also PF's usually remain stationary in a nice location.
My suggestion would be to drop out 1 squad of PF's. Drop of 2 fish from your FW squads, using the PF Fish's instead. You would only have 3 fish, but here is where I think you should then take.. A hammerhead, I think with ion cannon, since you have the B'sides. Ion cannons are marine killers! and excellent at it, very well costed for what they give you in return.
Any spare points, then grab a stealth suit team, only neds to be 4 strong + naked. They are great to work with cruit / harrass. Very good against stuff ap5 hurts Otherwise if need be, they are also easy to hide in game where they aren't going to help much. (This is for allcommers tourney list)
 Orks  Tau,
SM  WHFB Chaos
I have to note here that the Fireknife Elite has to be a Team Leader in order to take Hard-Wired options.
I recommend dropping the Team Leader and HWMT from your three Broadsides. Using those points, you can get Bonding Knives onto your FW Squads, then make the Fireknife a Team Leader.
Multitracker on Deathrain suits is not doing anything, since the suit only has one weapon system. TA is the upgrade of choice for that slot, and with your ten remaining points you can make that switch. If you don't feel like spending this many points for some reason, then a Blacksun Filter or a Flamer are the cheaper alternate items for the slot (between the two, I say BSF, but I have a friend who swears by having a Flamer on his deathrains as a holdout weapon).
I do prefer having some tanks, but I think your arrangement can work. Just make darned sure to pour absolutely excessive amounts of firepower into a squadron and finish it of, especially if it's Marines of any kind, and two FW squads firing at BS4 works out better than one at 5 and one at 3.
I'm assuming as well that the Kroot are going to be Infiltrating or Outflanking every game? Only exception to this will be if you're facing a Drop Pod list, in which case they should be forming a strung-out picket around your other units at deployment.
Also assuming that you know that the classic Warfish has both the DP and the DL, but I think you're right for leaving out the DL (I'm not a fan, especially now in 5th)
I fight for the Greater Good. Too bad for you it's MY Greater Good.
Snow Forces of T'olku W/L/D : 3-4-2... I like to think I'm learning, though.
so i feel dumb...i dont know why i have the MT on the deathrains nice catch. i need to go over the list agian and rearange some points but i do want to keep the 6 devil fish.
the main reason i want 6 devil fish is well its crazy sounds entertaining and if i wanted an extremely competitive list i probly wouldnt play tau. now this is not because i dont think you cant play tau and be competitive i just dont think i could do it.
so i will edit my list and repost it and i have no idea what i was thinking when i put MT on the DRs
