Hi, I just started to play Tau as my second army. I also play IG so i'm use to shooty army. But with my Tau I wanted to go a little more on the Elite side of things. We play 1250 pts in my local area so there was a lot of toys to fit inside that list, but at the end I'm happy with it.
Still I wanted some advise or comments about it
ELDAR ALLIES 171 pts.
Jet bike, Reaper Launcher (48" gun)
(3) Jet bikes
TAU DETACHMENT 1080 pts
Iridium Armor, Onagir Gauntlet, Jammer, Drone Controller,
Target Lock, Stim Injector, (15 pts. Gun), 2 Gun Drones
7 Crisis Body Guards
#1- (2) Flamers, C2 Node, Multi-spectrum sensor
#2 to 7- (2) 15 pts. Gun each, (6) Target Lock
(12) Gun Drones
The idea is that the commander, Farsight (as a warlord) and the Body Guard are in reserve and come on a 2+, thanks to the Autarch special rule. The goals is to hide out of line of sight the FW and the Jet Bikes for as long as needed for the Bomb to drop. In later game if the Jet Bikes have survived they can move and turbo-boost up to 48" to contest or grab an objective. I will mostly play against Blood Angels, Chaos Space Marines and Orks. None of them play mechanised, so if I play against marines, I planed to gear up with plasma on the suits, and if I play against Orks I am not sure which is the best. Missiles or Burst Cannon?
Thanks for your comments!
