Welcome to Librarium Online!
Ok... I had this nuts idea to run a crapload of Firewarriors. The army would basically consist of as many firewarriors as possible, with about half in Devilfish. Throw in an Ethereal for an HQ, a Hammerhead or two, and I'm in business.
Does anyone else think that the sheer number of shots is enough to win me the game(aside from Anti Tank, which is why I would bring the Hammerhead. Oh! And the FWs would have EMP Grenades)
Emperor have mercy on those who stand against me, for I shall not.
That could work well but i dont think it will be that effective. Mostly you will be versing necrons, marines and Witch Hunter They have 3+ armour. You dont have alot of Ap3+ weapons. take off emp grens its not like tau are going to get that close.
My 40K in 40 minutes armies are all infantry even though I could technically field some XV-8s(cheese).
What constitutes an all infantry army to you? Is it just for fun and will you be trying to win some games? Are Pathfinders infantry? Cause their Rail Rifles would rock to take out the enemies big guns.
My suggestions if you to do that would be to bring:
At least 2 DFish to do FoF
A 28 strong Kroot squad or two with da hounds.
A pathfinder squad or two with rail rifles.
A Human Aux kamikaze squad with 'nades.
Record as of 26 December for my Static Tau Cadre.
10 wins, 0 losses, and 1 draw.
Last game: Victory over Necron in a 600 point "kill em all" that lasted til turn 10 ending with a phase out.
Yes. You are crazy.
Seriously, against any army with a large amount of 3+ saves (SMurfs, Chaos SMurfs, Toasters, Nuns With Guns, certain Aspects), you will be in rather more or less dire straits.
Incidentally, this is V4Viorla, if you couldn't tell.
If you're supposed to be a Goth, where were you when we sacked Rome?
If you want to do something just mean and obnoxious, just skip straight to only stuff that walks: Firewarriors, Ethereal, and Broadsides (with tl-plasmas). You will hear the words gouda and cheese. Its not particularly fun, could do some damage, but a balanced force is always preferrable to a on type force, especially since Tau are already a specialist army.
