How to expand my Tau?
« on: May 04, 2016, 10:39:14 AM »
So, I want to expand my medium sized Tau army to be realy big and epic! So, anyone got any sugestions on how to expand it? Here is what I own so far

Shas'O R'Alai
Aun'Va (With both bodyguards)
Aun'Shi
Shadowsun
Ethereal
19 Pathfinders (9 are home made from fire warrior. 10 are the new. Got 10 more that are unbuilt)
72 Fire Warriors (Strike Team with Pulse Rifles)
10 Fire Warriors (Breacher Team)
53 Kroot (2 Sharpers)
31 Gun Drones
4 Shield Drones
2 Marker Drones
2 Shielded Missile Drones
1 Missile Drone
1 Piranha (Burst Cannon)
3 Devilfish
9 Stealth suits (2 Fusion Blasters)
14 Old Crisis Suits (Planning to replace with new)
3 New Crisis suits (Unbuilt)
6 Broadsides (5 old with Railguns, 1 new with Missiles)
2 Riptides (Ion Accellerators)
1 Stormsurge (Pulse Driver Cannon)
1 Sunshark/Razorshark (Unbuilt)

I'd also like to have some tips on how to equip my New Crisis Suits I'm gonna get to replace the old ones (No magnetising, I just cant do that..) I'm planning to build 3-6 with Fusion Blaster and Plasma Gun.. Thats all I know.. I wanna have a few to face all manner of opponents..

The Crisis suit load out really depends on what you need.

My list currently has suits with Fusion/Fusion, Flamer/Burst, Plasma/CIB, and one commander with Pod/Pod, and one with Flamer/Flamer.

In regards to making your medium(?!?) Tau army more epic. I recommend another Stormsurge for those really big battles and the only thing I can see that you don't have are regular commanders.

There's a great formation that requires 4 piranhas, and you don't have any tetras. The Riptide Wing is amazing and needs a minimum of 3 Riptides as well.

I have scribbled together ideas for how to expand my Tau, This is the ist of things I'm considering getting

Crisis Suits (3 Dual Fusion, 6 Dual Plasma)
Pirahnas (4 Burst Cannon, 5 Fusion Blaster)
Ghostkeels (3 Cyclonic Ion Rakers)
Hammerheads (3 Railguns, 3 Ion Cannons)
Broadsides (2 Missile Pods, 3 Heavy Rail Rifles)
Crisis Suit Commander
Cadre Fireblade
Tidewall Gunrig
Tidewall Shieldline
Tidewall Drone Port

Does that seem like a good addition? Might get a second Stormsurge sometime later for apocalypse matches, Dont realy use it in regular matches though.

Start with the 3 Ghostkeels. The Optimized Stealth Cadre is amazing.
