what tau need is snipers. It makes sense, they have such a good grasp of technology that a sniper rifle shoul be present. maybe an elites choice at 19pts per model, standard sniper rifle.
do some searches for similar threads on this topic. This idea has been talked about up and down and twice from each side.
Many sets of rules for this have been devised, and some even tested I think though I'm not sure how they worked out.
And twin-linked Rail Guns don't do it for you?
A sniper unit would fit the Tau fluff of avoiding CC (but maybe not since Sniper units are usually used to single out important characters, but the Tau seem to view most things as if they are all of equal importance), but I'd like to see it be more than just an expensive IG sniper with a 4+ save instead of 5+.
If you use broadsides as snipers then you're doing the greater good a disservice.
I don't know what made you think that the Tau see all enemies as equal. The fluff about their using pathfinders to mark the tanks in an advancing IG column as primary targets seems contrary to that though...
Dude me, vampiricdrake andthis other guy made up rules for them and tested them look for the topic tau sniper v1.1 or something like that. We tested it and it works great.

I was going against an Alaitoc army w/ tons of snipers coming at me broadsides just don't do sh*t, after I killed the tank and reapers, hence it's worthless to knock out one or two at a time when t. Broadsides can't count as our snipers because they're meant for big targets like tanks. Snipers would be really nice for the Tau!!! Damn Alaitoc pathfinders killed almost all my firewarriors in the first turn. I CRAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING WITH THAT POWER FOR THE TAU!!!! Never fear though crisis suits save the day!! Boy I luv shield drones...
