I was thinking about a different playing style with Tau recently. Something other than the old Fish of Fury and the static firing line. I came up with this new idea called "Covering Fire!"
Covering Fire basically involves having a broadside with an ASS or two wondering up the field with heaps of fire warriors around him. The Broadside provides "covering fire" with the submunitions shot while the firewarriors blast anything that's left. For anti tank the usual hammerhead or piranah would come in handy or the broadside could use a solid shot.
I guess covering fire is a little like the static firing line. One main difference in the "thinking" of the army is there isn't the chance to want to be static, you must always push foward. This eliminates the use of 30' range, but I'm sure no one will want to come into 12' rapid fire range either. Especially if they have been whittled down by the submunitions rounds first.
So, what do you think? Am I a genious or am I an idiot? :shifty:

My vote goes to idiot as broadsides can't use submunitions

It would be a great idea but unfortunately, broadsides can't use submunitions.:sleep:
