Welcome to Librarium Online!
I will bbe facing ork armys alot with my tau can you give me advice and possibly a army list. is this one good i dont have the codex
crisis battlesuit with twin linked missle pod and plasma big thing and 2 drones - 120
5 stealth suits - 150
12 Fw - 120
12 Fw - 120
8 drones - 64
3 broadside battlesuits with that multi-tracker thing - 250
850 points around
broadsides to destroy 3 sqauds of orks a turn
stealth suits to be tactical and make me look good and quick and smart
Fw because i need them
drones because the retinue will become a retinue of 10 drones
how will youre broadsides destroy a squad of orks a turn?? thats only 3 s10 shots? only the hammerhead can shot submotion shots.
8 gun drones cost 94 pts.
dont TL stuff on a bs4/5 model!
all else looks rather good get a hammerhead tough.
I suppose some good advice would be that you can't play tau properly unless you have the codex. There are a few things technically wrong with that list for starters. Fellow tau players - do our crisis get 'big things'? Maybe it's the cc weapon we've been dieing for?Originally Posted by Chaotic Fury
Heh, astroth, 8 gun drones is 96p. And his commander if i get it right is 109p, 134p, 119p, or 144p. And that's with a free big thing too. Hmm, let me see. 250/3 = er, not a whole number. those broadsides must have...oh wait, there it is again, they have a thing. that must be 8 1/3p. i wonder if it's as good as a 'big' thing?
Of course I'm going to make fun. This post made me laugh .
does that p stand for pervert
oh and i dont have the codex so shut up
Hmm, instead of belittling your post, I think I'll add some constructive critizism.
The first thing that stands out to me is your Broadsides.
Broadsides are meant to kill armor, and in 1000 pt (or less) games, you shouldn't expect to see so much as to warrant three of these guys. I'd drop two of them and get more FireWarriors.
FireWarriors are great in large numbers, esspecially against a clumsy army like Orks. You can pack in and put lots of Str 5 guns into a squad.
Stealths rock! Good job on taking them, though I'd increase the squad size to six.
Good choice on the Drones too. Many enemies will ignore Drones in favor of chasing suits, or killing FireWarriors.
One last thing, your Commander has a decent enough BS that he won't need a twin linked weapon as often as a basic suit.
So summarizing my recommendations:
Drop two of the Broadsides.
Increase the FireWarriors.
Tinker with the Commander a bit.
If these changes put you at a loss for points, I'd either get some Crisis Suits or Kroot. The Crisis Suit's ability to field Str 6 Plasma and Str 7 Missile weapons is great for killing transports and heavy infantry. Plus the mobility they add to your army and stress they will add to the enemy's is outstanding.
Kroot will add a good counter punch to your army if the enemy can close with you quicker than you can gun them down. Just keep in mind that it's best to field Kroot in squads of 14 or more.
should i drop 3 suits and get a hammerheads and troops! oh by the way i dont have to codex ill tinker it tommorow

And for constructive advice, listen to the previous post. He pretty much cleared up everything you need to know. Hammer heade is the number one priority though!
loves the funeral for hearts.
I assume you're refering to the Broadsides.Originally Posted by Chaotic Fury
In my opinion, the Hammerhead is much better than Broadsides due to its mobility, and the Sub-Munition Round on the RailGun, but it's really up to you.
I always take lots of troops to a fight (60 FireWarriors and 20 Kroot in my 2K list, 48 FireWarriors in my 1K list), esspecially when your troop totes around a 30" Str 5 gun.
Just toy around with your list for a while. You have a good start. The rest will come with some time and gaming experience. You'll soon see what you're lacking and what you've got too much of.
I was being light hearted and you are being rude.Originally Posted by Chaotic Fury
How are you expecting to play without the codex? Will you be moving your fire warriors and shooting 30"? Will you be dropping submunitions from your broadside railguns? Do tau have BS4? What do you mean jet packs don't move 12" in movement phase? Broadsides don't have jet packs? Are you sure?
There's no problem with you having a fun game without the codex. The problem is that you have asked us to write a list for you and that leads to questions about what each unit does and that leads to unit stats and it's all a breach of copyright.
forst of all ill answer all questions with the reference sheet
1. no i wont there rapid fire
2.no i wont
4.they move 6 movement and 6 assault
5.i know they dont
you download the refernce sheet of the website so its not copyright so there i do know most of the rules apart from wepons costs
