Welcome to Librarium Online!
in my opinion we need more troops choices or elites or something. we basically have 2 choices for every slot!
(except for heavy support but krootox shouldnt count since it sux)
anyone have any ideas on any new units? here, ill start off
some kinda seer council or command squad or whatever:
Squad:ethereal, 4-9 firewarriors
Options:one fire warrior may be upgraded to shas'ui blah blah markerlight blah
the fire warriors may take a specialist kit. i dunno be creative, like uh.. medic or stealth or somethig...
special: BS4 firewarriors
o..k... well that sucked anyone have something better than that maybe?
Starting anew-september 22 2005
a new battle suit would be pretty good but they pretty much have all the options covered or some sort of tau anti grav bike used by fire warriors or soemthin i knwo they have those two new vehicles out but a bike would be good

There are already jetbike models for tau. Check out Forgeworld. They look really cool but they are only reconnaissance vehicles so they are'nt very powerful but its a start.
Destruction is the work of an afternoon. Creation is the work of a lifetime.
Tau jetbikes with burst cannons, one for every three may be upgraded with a different crisis suit weapon at the codex-listed point cost. Squads of 1-9, Fast Attack, maybe ~45 points a bike?

Sarchasm: the gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the fool who doesn't get it.
no matter how much you compaline about a lack of unit choices for tau, their not gonna change what they have, their a good balanced army as they are, stop being a whiney little kid and play.
Quote of the week: "dude, for a whole hour, i would fall asleep!"
Hey, as I metioned in another post, the Tau have to get some more Anti-tank ability outside of their 2 Heavy Support choices.
I think they need to have a fire warrior unit as a troops choice that can take a railgun mounted on an anti-grav platform, kind of like the eldar. They would be a "heavy weapons detachment" and be an upgrade to regular fire warriors. Or maybe give some drones the ability to upgrade their grenade launchers to fire EMP grenades--now that would really mess up some tanks. I think that would be TOO easy though.
Some kind of anti-grav bikes would make a great Fast Attack choice, as that's a very plausible unit for a Tau army--I'm certain they have the technology, and I'm equally sure they could find a battlefield role for such a unit. Not sure how it would unbalance the Army List as a whole though.
Much as we like the Tau, they can't be good a everything, now, can they?! ^_^
Purge all the heretics,
Kill the alien scum,
Suffer not the unclean to live,
And have a beer when you're done.
tau really aren't short on tank busting
you've got the railguns, the deep striking fusion blasters, the stealth suits/drones on rear armour, the seeker missiles and now fusion blaster jet bikes and hammerheads from forgeworld
another troops choice would be nice but hard to explain (apart from the other forgeworld vehicle). perhaps some kind of smaller heavy weapons team in small battle suits (like stealth but suited to fire support like broadsides).

Suggestions on Future Tau Units.
( HEAVY ) XV-90 "Basher" Battlesuit - Melee Expert. Disruption Pod, and Stealth Field, Choise of 2 Melee Hard Points, and 1 Other.
( ELITE ) XV-44 "Wasp" Battlesuit - Light Flyer. 2 Hard points, 1 Support System. Designed to fly high, avoid shots, and rain down death. ( Not as strong or tough as Crisis )
( TROOP ) Heavily Armed Fire-Warrior Squads, I.e. Rail Rifles, Light Plasma Rifles, Missiles, etc.
( ELITE ) Earth Caste Elites - Armed with Hightech Melee Weapons.
( HQ ) Drone Queen - provides leadership of 10 to all drones within 20 inchs, as allows rerolls on checks for those drones. Armed with Burst Cannon, and sheild generator.
( FAST ) Pathfinders without Devilfish!!!!!
( TROOP ) Air Caste Drop Troops - Flying troops, Weak, but move arround fast, and rain fire onto the enemy.
( HQ ) Water Caste Diplomat - 1 in 6 chance to 'resolve conflict' diplomaticly without fighting. Tau player gains outmatic win. Provides a few other bonus, no idea what. ( Just think Diplomacy rocks. )
Hehe, well as much as we all love Diplomacy(the game), think how lame it would be to haul your ass and all your minis over to the gaming club, unload all of them, set up the terrain, choose a scenario, deploy and all that...just to roll a d6, hey, I win *does evil victory dance*, pack it down again and go home...?
