Hello everyone, I'm new to this Forum, but not to the game. I wanted to see what kind of reception my Mech Tau armylist would get if I showed it to you.
PR, MP, HWMT, SG
XV8 Team (3)
XV8 Team (3)
XV8 Team (3)
FW Team w/Shas'ui (11)
MT, DP, TA, DL
Railgun, Burstcannons, MT, DP, DL
TOTAL PTS: 1003
Anyway, I'm not unhappy with the list as it is. I've never played a Mech Tau but it caught my interest somewhere between now and then, and I had my first go with it, resulting in this list. I created it for an upcomming turnament with some friends, fielding Necrons, Eldar, Chaos, SM and Nids. I'm mainly going to face Nec's, Chaos and Eldar though.
By all means, help me, if any flaws are found, and let me correct them. Not sure if I have overdone it somewhere.

The list is illegal as you only have 1 troop choice.
Secondly if you play any kind of objective grabbing mission you have only one group to hold an objective. You Need More Troops! In 1000 pts you should have at least 2 but probably 3 troop choices.
I would suggest adding some more firewarriors and a small group of Kroot.
Take your XV8 teams down to 2 per team and get another group of Firewarriors.
Downgrade the HQ to a shas'el with a TA +HWMT and HWDC....its cheaper then a Shas'O...if your still low on points for your FWs and kroot take the gundrone off of him....or the markerdrone...his BS will already be at 5.
Thank you for pointing those things out, but I thought that a Fish was a "Troop" choice by itself, thus letting me have 2 Troop Choices, guess I was wrong, and I will fix it, as I am well aware that I need the 2 troop choices. Isn't a Fish a Troop Choice?
Regarding the MD on my Shas'O - I put the markerlight on him because he is more likely to deal "Death from afar" and is better at staying alive than say, the FWs. I actually thought about downgrading him but it seems to me that he looses a lot of stats that, in the battles I've fought at least, have helped him come out victorious.
The greatest of weaknesses in any army is the player fielding it!
Fi'rios "Hellstorm Remnants" w/l/d-3/3/0
+1 LD - You don't need this because he should be working alone. I would get rid of the drones.
+1 I, WS, and A - Close combat skills? If he's in close combat he's usually dead.
+1 W - This might seem useful, but most of the time when he dies it's from instant death.
Basically, the Shas'O isn't worth the 15 points over the 'El.
You have a decent core list, but you need to add 1 or 2 troop choices.
