    It's weird to see that the skyray doesn't come with a targetting array. Markerdrones also seem really expensive, and I'm wondering if they're worth it in a devilfish unit. I also think you should take smart missile on your devilfish, 5 smart missiles will be much more effective than 3 for their points, you start to gain the psychological advantage that your opponent can't hide from you.

    Why haven't you taken a targetting array on your pirana's?

    And that's just with the Kroot.

    Yeah, Ive had SMS modelled for my fish since IA3 and they make the fish an actuall light gunship. Combine this w/ a targeting array and a multitracker for 7 BS4, STR5 shots! Opponents HATE SMS though so I could only get a few who agreed to play me w/ them but now they are legal I will have them on all the time.

    Also, as to the 7 skimmers....
    I believe we will see a rise in the MECH heavy lists. Pirahnas are a great vehicle IMO and can somewhat replace the need for crisis. Notice I said somewhat.

    I've been toying w/ a complete mech list and it does pretty darn good. Lots of seekers and 12 markerlights divided between squads in Fish, Finders, and Tetras. 10 vehicles in all. 6 XV15's are the only thing not mounted in vehicles, as they have tailed the prey and called the cadre to battle.

    Your list will do good, but you should get the FW shas'ui's some markerlights too if this is what the squads will be doing.

    Phase Out....

    Markerdrones also seem really expensive
    They are unfortunatley, myself and a few of my friends have been struggling with ML's thing Is the ML's rules are brilliant the problem Is getting them on the board obviously the Skyray Is the obvious option but then two HH's become compulsory which leaves pathfinders which will just get shot to hell and the other being FW's It becomes a tricky prospect, I'll be Interested to see others try and Incorporate ML's efficiently as getting the right balance of ML's, Seekers and firepower Is a trick In Itself :wacko:
    I do love the new pirhana's I just think adding more points to the above layout would be to much I.E

    Pirhana
    Fusion Blaster
    Targetting Array
    2 x Seekers
    95pts

    Thats a lot of points for open topped AV11, I think In games above 1500 they'll be a great additon adding further options.
    Anyways sticking to the standard way of playing Tau I was also looking at the List below making the Fish Into Light gunships appeals to add punch to the FOF tactics :w00t:
    Any further hints or tips on the two lists would be most apreciated as I'm having trouble deciding which way to play :wacko:
    Thanks In Advance,
