    More crisis suits, they are one of the best Tau units.

    I like to have 4, 1 as a HQ-Shas&#39;O and a team of 3 elites, give them all Plasma guns/Missile pods/multi-trackers and give the team leader a hard-wired drone-controller and 2 shield drones. keep the Shas&#39;O alone.

    Use the independent character rule to keep your HQ from being targeted and just move around the board killing things


    Also, you may want to get a team of broadsides (3), if you do, give 2 of them target locks and the 3rd a drone-controller with 1-2 shield drones.


    hope that helps.

    You should spring for the tau battleforce box. It&#39;ll pretty much finish up the army you&#39;re looking for.

    But ya, Crisis suits are amazing.

    Thx for the help.. But ..

    Would it be worth it to buy a battle force ? i mean are the kroots worth it ? i don&#39;t really seem to be particularly fond of them but i may not be using them right.. what does everyone think ?

    I use Farsight so no kroot for me, although they can make good meat-shields for broadsides.

    If you didn&#39;t want the battle force I&#39;d say get another box of FW, 3 Crisis suits, 3 broadsides, and maybe another 3 stealth suits to make a full squad if you find them usefull.

    I see what you&#39;re saying, and I&#39;ve had the same thoughts, myself. I&#39;ve never fielded only one crisis suit ever, though. So, buy as many as you can. They can play any role in your army (i&#39;ve said this time after time on this site).

    I&#39;d field a little more anti-tank than one hammerhead. Broadsides pack quite a punch, and, like the hammerhead, are quite difficult to kill.

    The kroot are definitly worth OWNING. They are not the greatest troop selection in every scenario against every army, but they definitly have their place in some battles. You&#39;ll be glad to have them when you can send them up through the forest and into an assault with all the attacks they get. They&#39;re also interesting pieces that are nice to paint.

    I believe something like this is in another thread, but here it is"

    A battleforce box costs &#036;90, I think.

    So you get:
    12 Fire Warriors &#036;30
    3 Crisis Suits &#036;45
    5 Extra Gun Drones &#036;10

    Total &#036;85


    So for &#036;5 you get:
    12 kroot and some jungle trees

    I agree with everything but one, with the broad sides give 1 a drone controller, 2 shield drones, and the others tardet locks, the reason is if you destroy a tank with you first broadside there is no point on waisting the other 2. So if you kill a tank with your first broadside you can wreak havoc on other targets with the other two broadsides. Reason i dont say to put the multi-trackers on, is if something even ends up getting close enough to you where you think they are in danger, the twinlinked missle pods is enough fire power i have found. But that&#39;s just my opinion.
