    Hola, Que Pasa LO?
    Das Shasvre is kicking it into gear.

    I'm selling my Angels on ebay for those interested.

    But I'm currently expanding My Cresent Moon Huntre Cadre

    So far I've picked up
    =================
    1 Etherial. (Proffesionally Painted). (For Show)
    1 Shas'o
    1 Shas'el

    2 XV8 suits

    3 Firewarrior squads, (All painted Decked out)
    1 Kroot Squad (Size 10x)

    1 8x Gun Drone Squadron.

    1 Broadside Squad, (Currently Converting)
    1 Hammerhead w. replaceable parts (I.e. ability to switch weapons)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~=\/=~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Oooh, what to pick next is a headache, I'm currently looking at
    my list and everything seems so complicated, and I really would
    like some help on planning my army. FyI i've also been researching
    mech tau and i'm currently interested.

    I agree here.

    Get Crisis Suits and Stealth Suits, and a Shas'el or Shas'O for your HQ with your Ethereal. I'd recommend a few Devilfish, and hide your Ethereal in one of them.

    It really depends on how big of a game you're playing if you want Fast Attack/Heavy Support.

    However, if you are going to use Kroot get at least 10 more for a full squad of 20 - including a Shaper - and I'd recommend getting like 8 hounds.

    what kind of fast attack tho? More Drones? 2 gun drone squads, 1 Pathfinder
    team?

    Edit: I'm currently working with a shas'el as my lieutennant, and a Shas'O
    for my commander. My Shas'o is currently hitched up to a gun drone squadron
    of 8...with his two combined 10 Drones for his b.g.

    I wouldn't recommend putting him with the drones, for two reasons:

    Due to majority armour save rules, and Toughness rules, I believe, he will be hurt easier.

    Due to IC rules in 4th Edition, he is much more likely to survive as an IC - as long as he's not the closest target to the enemy, he can't be shot at.

    Yeah, I taged him along with the drone squadron as an IC.

    That doesn't matter - joining the squad will allow him to be targetted with the Drone squadron. Giving him the Drones in the first place gets rid of his IC status until they die.

    Yeah 10 wound character basically. Put some sheild drones in there and he should
    last a while.

    The shield drones would be a waste - why? Because their save will get negated due to majority armour save rules.

    More gun drones would work better, of course.

    However, personally, I'd rather have the 4 wound character who can't be targetted then a 10-wound character who can. Just my POV, of course.

    I've heard that the Shas'O with 10x Gun Drones can indeed be quite deadly, and if you like the idea by all means, go for it and tell us how it goes!

    Pin a squad, cause a few casualties with the Drones, and melt a bunch of people with your Shas'O.
