Welcome to Librarium Online!
now i am against tau soon in 40k in 40 min, and i am confused how to handel this as tau will shoot me to hell and (most probably not) back. i was thinking about using...
warriors - extended carapace, v.canon, claws, devourer, 3xtalons
8 genstealers with talons
what do u think? any help would be great
Drop the talons for EC on the Stealers. Makes them more survivable against tau fire. Drop the terms since they won't be doing a heck of alot. take horms instead
Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.
I agree with Dymew, give the Stealers EC so they aren't instantly killed by the incoming fire. I wouldn't bother with the guns on the Warriors. The number of Tau you'd kill at range really wouldn't reduce their fire. I'd give them all ST/RC and leaping.
I could go either way on the gaunts, either drop the shooty ones for mor Hormies, or dump the Hormies for a higher number of gaunts.
If you are limited to your minis and this is all you have, I'd run the GS up front along with the Warriors. They have the best shot of surviving fire, and you'll force him to make Target Priority checks if he wants to shoot the Gaunts (shooty and Hormie). When you're in range with the Gaunts, unleash them from behind the GS/Warrior front line and tie up his lanes of fire, allowing your remaining models to close in HtH.
If you can reach his lines, you're most likely going to win (as is usually the case between Tau and Tyranids).

ok thx, so this is my new list, what do u think?
3 warriors - 112
extended carapace, leadping
taolns + v.canon, 2xtalons, talons + claws
8 stealers - 160
8 hormagaunts - 80
8 gaunts - 48
i would have more haumagaunts and possably a lictor but i dont have the models yet
