    2000 Back to our Roots; Back to our Future

    Recently, I've been thinking of running the Tau as their fluff indicates, instead of with max XV8's, min Fire Warriors, and our allies outnumber in the Tau on every battlefield. So, I've decided to make an all Tau list that Goes back to the basics: XV8s as support for Fire Warriors, fast moving, and FoF. I personally like the list I have come up with, although I wish our points were a little more reminiscient of 5th edition costs. But anyways, here goes!

    Shas’El – 127
    Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Targeting Array, Hard-Wired Multi-Tracker, Hard-Wired Drone Controller, x2 Shield Drones

    XV8 Squad – 141
    (x3) Twin-Linked Missile Pod, Flamer
    XV8 Squad – 141
    (x3) Twin-Linked Missile Pod, Flamer
    Stealth Team – 150
    (x3) Burstcannon, Drone Controller, x6 Gun Drones

    Fire Warrior Team – 235
    12 Fire Warriors with Pulse Rifle, Devilfish with Disruption Pod, Multi-Tracker, and Smart Missile System
    Fire Warrior Team – 235
    12 Fire Warriors with Pulse Rifle, Devilfish with Disruption Pod, Multi-Tracker, and Smart Missile System
    Fire Warrior Team – 235
    12 Fire Warriors with Pulse Rifle, Devilfish with Disruption Pod, Multi-Tracker, and Smart MissileSystem
    Fire Warrior Team – 235
    12 Fire Warriors with Pulse Rifle, Devilfish with Disruption Pod, Multi-Tracker, and Smart MissileSystem

    Piranha – 85
    Targeting Array, Disruption Pod, Fusion Blaster
    Piranha – 85
    Targeting Array, Disruption Pod, Fusion Blaster

    Broadside Team – 160
    (x2) Targeting Array
    Hammerhead – 155
    Railgun, Multi-Tracker, Disruption Pods

    Total - 1984

    This is meant to be a relatively fluffy list, although I think it has potential. The stealth suits I know aren't popular, but I've had amazing luck with them in the past, so decided they warrant another try. The six gun drones are there so I can max out on fire power with the squad, plus giving them the slight benefit of possibly pinning theri targets.

    Holy 4th edition !

    If i had to take a stab at it, id say this is semi-competitive list for 5th.

    But i do love it, i always loved fish of fury.
    Eldar -APOC- 6500 Points
    Chaos Daemons -Fate Crusher- 3500 Points
    Grey knights - 1000 Points

    The fact that it's different and oldschool is reason enough to do it in my book, good on you.

    Just got to get it all painted, of course...

    One point, hammerhead must have a secondary weapon system.
