    After playing the various missions I came to the conclusion that Biel-Tan are probably the best all-round army. Firstly by having 2 squads of Scorpions and 2 squads of Reapers you can choose which ones to start off with in Reserve type missions. With 2 Farseers you also get the advantage of Fortuned Scorps. Wraithlords are the best heavy choice and you can take 3 lone Vypers for extra firepower and objective grabbing.

    Opinions?

    sounds good. but their not particulary strong in anything are they. Biel-tan is for people that cant really decide what way they want to play. And its ok when you go agianst some armies. But the tau you really want to be close combat.

    I kind of agree, they can do almost anything and any job. But they are going to be small and expensive, so they'll have to be quick. I like large units of guardians one they can be used as meat shields, two they can pour out sh!t loads of firepower at close range and three they can be tailored to handle most things.

    So the Biel-Tan will be good but you have to make sure that each unit is given a specific job and that they do it, otherwise you will be screwed.

    Biel tan have lots of variety in their troops and elites but they only have shining spears and swooping hawks in fast attack.If you have 3 lone vypers there is no space for gaurdians, rangers or jetbikes so you should drop a few or put them all in one squad.Anyway at bs 3 vypers miss half the time so you might need more accurate firepower like rangers.You could guide youre vyper squad but it would be a bit of a waste to only guide one.In conclusion you should definately drop two vypers or put them all in one squad and guide them.
    You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.

    Well...there's a reason Biel-Tan statistically wins the most tourneys--they are incredible, but only in a good commander's hands. They are one of the most tactically flexible, but also one of the most unforgiving armies you could possibly pick to play.
