The venue that I play at is having a kill teams tournement next week, I would like to play Tau but I really dont know where to start. Tau choices are limited to FW, Kroot, Drones, Path Finders(?), Stealth suits (but they break a rule), and etheral. Has anyone used any effective kill teams with Tau? I figured I would use a squad of FW and just blast everything from maxium range, I would probably include Photon Grenades. If I can include them with out there mount I could see Pathfinders doing well to.
4x Pathfinder (4
-Rail Rifle (10)
9x Fire warriors (90)
Who brings a Hammerhead to a 500 point fight?!

Stealth suits only break a minor rule, plus they seem very fluffy appropriate, so they'd be my first choice.
Otherwise, kroot prolly beat out FW. better in hand to hand, cheaper, gun is almost as good. Considering kill-teams have a smaller engagement range, they'll do better.
They have too many shots per model. A minor rule is they're either allowed 1 or 2 shots, per model.
i personally would most likely use stealth suits (despite the rule) partly for the fluff but i would also seriously consider gun drones
I'd prolly play pathfinders and gun drones. Maybe a stealth suit too.
exactly! GDs are overlooked by many tau players, who see them as nothing but wargear, but as MiketehFox has said they are better in cc and more accurate, not to mention that they are equipped with tau jetpacks...and they only cost two more points!Originally Posted by MiketehFox
well can you take the pathfinders without the DF?? i would field
3 xv15 90pts
5 Gundrones 60 pts would be a rather fast and fluffy list
I had this topic too, but I was thinking to add Gue'vesa to the mix. Always fun!
