    Help needed making a 300pt Tau army

    Hi,
    I need to fix up a 300pt Tau army by next Sunday. At the moment I have two 12 man squads of Fire Warriors. I have £15 to spend on more units. Any ideas what to get to boost my point count?

    Thanks,
    Ka'shu

    this is what I'd do:

    HQ:
    Shas'el crisis suit with plasma/burst/tracker and 2 gun drones

    troops:
    2 basic FW squads of 10 FW

    this will be 301 pts.

    Yeah, you don't have many options in 300pt range. I would suggest 1 squad of Fire Warriors and 1 squad of Kroot (More models are your friend the smaller it goes...) but since you are already limited I would follow O'Reno's advice. Are you playing by Combat Patrol rules? If you are you can ditch the commander and get another squad. Details please!

    If your playing Combat Patrol, I'd take 20 Firewarriors and then invest the rest in a couple of plasma armed crisis suits. Reasonably cheap and effective, and there isn't much you can take for 300pts (besides some hormagaunts perhaps) that stands a chance of catching them.

    You could also get some Stealth suits, 1 squad of FWs and the Suits could work well with the proper tactics IMO.

    24 fire warriors and a twinlinked plasma suit comes to 300p, and is very nasty.

    And that's just with the Kroot.

    i would go with 24 fire warriors, and an ethereal with up to ten points in upgrades... not much i know, but im not sure that you could fit a shas'el with twin linked plasma in under 300 pts(are you allowed to go over?)

    You do realise if you play that list your going to basically have to do:

    FW squad 1 --------------------------------------------------------------------> Ethereal
    FW squad 2 Miles away hidden behind cover....

    Basically if I saw that list, I would kill the Ethereal with a Heavy Bolter or something (T3 no armour save!) and laugh as your army ran away.

    Yeah, I can see what you mean I need something that's hard-hitting and can take at least a small amount of punishment.
