Ok, so as previously mentioned this is my first list for tau. I've tried to do research so I don't seem too dumb but I know it will still happen naturally. Anyways I'm creating a tau list that is semi-fluffy because i'm basing it around being a bit stealthy, but until i can get all the units i desire here is my list thus far. I also was wondering what would be a good thing to drop if i were to want to get down to 1k points.
shash'el Fireknife mp/pr/ta/hwmt
4x stealth suits w/ ML Drone/fb/hwtl
2x fireknife 1) mp/pr/ta/hwtl 2) mp/pr/ta
Depending on who i'm fighting either:
2x deathrain 1) tlmp/ta/hwtl 2) tlmp/ta
2x helios 1) tlfb/ta/hwtl 2) tlfb/ta
6x Gun Drones
5x Pathfinders 3x RR/ hwtl DF w/ DP/BC
3x Broadsides w/ advanced stablization
1x hammerhead w/ rg/bc/mp/dp
So, that's what i have thus far. I'm about to receive a skyray sprue, another 2 xv8's. I also have 4 more stealth models available. I want to be somewhat competative, but I enjoy playing w/ some fluff too. My theaory was in a list with skyrays, stealth, sniper drones, Commander Shadowsun (or some similar variant), and ML's. I think it might be an interesting list to play with seeker missles, ml's, and lots of stealth.
As always any comments good or bad would be GREATLY appreciated.

Overall you have a good start, but a lot of upgrades that serve no purpose. You also lack Troop mobility. If you got a Fish for that lonely FW squad and some Kroot, you'd have reliable Troops that can stay safe while your guns go to work. It's a lot of feedback but hopefully it was helpful.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.
Like to talk Warhammer or want some advice on Armies or Tactics? Drop me a PM!
i agree with excess. If ur gonna run a stealth fluff army u probably need to keep them mobilised in Devilfishes. dropping a squad would probably help, but i dont see the required devilfish needed to feild pathfinders. ad that drop a frie warrior squad and add some devilfish. once youve got that i think you'll be ready for battle.
