    I have 22 Fire Warriors
    3 Crisis Suits
    1 Commander
    1 Devilfish
    5 Pathfinders-2 Rail Rifles.

    How can I expand it to help me win more?

    Get a hammerhead first off. This tank is amazing.

    Really, having a little bit of everything (except Krootox, those are just crap) is a good way to go. Get some Stealth Suits, Kroot, and a squad of Gundrones in about that order, after the hammerhead).

    Stealth suits are always a great buy, i&#39;ve never had a battle where they didn&#39;t take out their point value (well, &#39;cept that one time against necrons, but thats a different story). I&#39;d say with a small army like that get a unit of 4 or 5 with a shas&#39;ui. Also, i know broadsides are full of railgunny alure, but go for the hammerhead first, broadsides can&#39;t move 12" and fire, not to mention the nifty submunitions. As far as kroot go, i dont use &#39;em, but some people do, i think they&#39;re just too hard to use right and usually just get slaughtered. And finally, consider getting one of your fire warrior teams in a devilfish too, they are super effective at running around the field and adding support wherever necessary.

    Yeah stealthsuits are cool but as a question why exactly do you have TWENTY-TWO fire warriors? They come in packs of twelve, so what happened to the other two? Just curious. =)

    Yeah, I think I would suggest some sort of heavy support. I have both the hammerhead and broadside units. Both work pretty good unless you have to move.

    A Kroot squad might be a nice addition after the heavy support. Don&#39;t get the Kroot Ox. He&#39;s a big waste of points and slots.

    More troops couldn&#39;t hurt you either.

    Good Luck

    See Tanya&#39;s suggested Christmas list (read: list of things to buy for a good Tau army) in the other army-advice-thread. She pretty much hits it on the head.

    I suggest using Fire warriors i have 48 firewarriors and the assault guys cant get close also stealth suits and they seem to make back their points w/ 3 shots
    The Predator Lingers forth. Suddenly the sound of several wipping sounds can be heard far off into the distance, a second later the once mighty Predator ignited with flames. "Sir what was that" The srgt replied "Its those damn Broadsides"

    Hear the wip, fear the Broadside.

    You need a bit more of everything.

    Kroot, Stealth Suits, and a Hammerhead will suit ya well.

    Might also concider investing in another Devilfish. Firewarriors in a Devilfish are highly effective, as they allow you to move into perfect firing possition, and move away the next turn.

    If you want to have fun either get a commander with fushion/plasma/ and connect to 10 gun drones. OR have the commander gatling(sry i like calling it that)/plasma. Fun stuff and annoying as hell. Crowd control.
