    [1850] Fiddling with Tau...

    Just fiddling a bit. Keep in mind I know perfectly well how to make a super-capable list, so I just wanted to get comments on this specific type of list, and if it's a feasible tactic. No "get Pathfinders instead!" people, please, thanks.

    Heavy Support

    1 Skyray with MT; TA; DC
    @145 points

    2 Hammerheads with RG; 2 x BC; MT; DC
    @330 points

    Total Points: 1843
    Total Models: 59
    Total Skimmers: 5

    Eight Markerlights on the table, six protected by Stealth fields (Stealth Suits will use their Infiltrate ability to find a suitable fire lane ~30" away from the enemy, making maximum use of their Stealth fields) and two on the Skyray, hitting on a 3+. The Hammerheads and Crisis Suits will make the most use out of any Markerlight hits to take out enemy tanks and large chunks of enemy infantry. Two FW squads are there as long distance fire support with the other two squads as mobile light tanks, taking objectives or moving to where they are needed.

    Decent amount of models, decent amount of tanks, plenty of firepower with the potential for great accuracy. I'd like to test this list.

    One of the reasons I decked the Stealth Squads out as I did is because most people are hesitant to take Pathfinders as, useful as they are, they tend to get wiped out after a turn or two. Stealth fields will stop that from happening.

    Productive comments or criticism?

    Thanks for the comment, Katalyst. Just trying to do something a bit different, while still having a competitive edge.
