Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was wondering if a farsight army was really worth the cc boost, while loosing drones. Any opinions?

Farsight armies have the same cc capabilities as Guardsmen. IMHO, that ain't worth losing drones and more then one Hammerhead.
Yes it is definitely worth it, but only in small points where the army limitations dont matter so much.
One thing to remember though is that you shouldn't be using a Farsight army for the CC boost, that is just wrong, even a Farsight Tau army needs to avoid CC at all costs. If you want to use a Farsight army you use it for one thing and one thing only - Farsight himself. He is a monster in CC, and has a better shooting weapon than almost any other special character, he will do wonders for you. Of course, he is the exception when I say avoid CC, he needs to be there.
Using a CC Tau army is like making a shooty tyranid army. it may be a fun variation but dont start a game expecting to win. IMO Tau need to be right on the edge of their weapons ranges and stay there.
Here are some Tyranid items I have going on Ebay!
A completely shooty Tyranid army, now that would be fun to fight. Playing as Tau of course.Originally Posted by dubba07
