    For your strategy, I'd said Broadsides would be the best. (Stand + Shoot + Twinlinked Railguns + 3 in a squad for one heavy choice) You might also consider burst cannons or Missile Pods. Make them roll their armor save enough, and eventually they will fail.

    It's not Armor, it's Armor Save.

    Not like a Dread, sorry. If it were THAT easy...man.

    No, Wraithlords have a 3+ armor save (like Marines) and have some high toughness (over 5). Hard to take down, but with enough shots they'll start missing their saves. Unless they're very lucky. Ion Cannons = BANE of Wraithlords. Neglect saves, have a decent strength. Three shots. Hit them hard with these.

    The Tau Racial Average is arround 4 1/2 Feet ( 135 cm ) Tall. The Human Racial Average is arround 5 1/4 Feet ( 160 cm ) Tall. ( Yes, Shorter then us Yanks, but not humanity as a whole )

    As far as taking out Wraith Lords go, A) Ion Cannon / Rail Gun / C) Seeker Missile / D) Fusion Blaster / E) Plasma Rifle... you name it. The Tau have a wide assortment of powerful weapons for taking out any enemy.

    We even have Large Ordnance Template Weapons that dont use scatter dice, how sweet is that?

    Just make sure to read the Magnetic Mounting guide pinned at the very top end of the Tau Forum BEFORE you assemble your army. Really, wether its Tau or Otherwise, there are some very handy Modelling Tips there.

    EDIT: P.S. Yes, I know Space Marines are MUCH taller, but they are genetically engineered, so dont count

    Stick a melta-bomb on it. That's my recommendation. Either that or hit it with a power fist. It also helps if you cast Eldritch Storm on it first with your Farseer so you can hit its rear armor with the melta-bomb or power fist when you assault it.
