I am very new to Tau after almost 20 years off and on of playing Blood Angels. I decided to give them a go because of my love for Gundams and recently sold off some old models to take advantage of Back Friday at my local shop. The league will begin at either 250 or 500 and gain 250 points a month until 2000 so I would like to finish with a strong 2k point list with options to swap around. I am looking for some advice for list builds, loadouts, and general tactics as I know Tau are very different from my Bllood Angels. Here is a list of what I currently have.
12 man Fire Warrior Strike Team with Turret and 2 Drones (Drones unbuilt)
10 man Fire Warrior Breacher Team with 2 Drones (unbuilt so could be Strike Team)
3 Stealth Suits with 1 Markerlight Drone
3 Crisis Suits with 6 Drones (unbuilt)
1 Hammerhead Gunship (unbuilt)
1 Riptide with 2 Drones (partially unbuilt)
I recently sold off some Warmachine that I am not using so I have about $200 to spend. Keep in mind that I do need to play at lower point levels too. I was thinking of getting a Commander, Pathfinders for Markerlights, and Devilfish for Breachers. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
