Who will you be fighting with this?
Any idea as to what mission?

And who will ride on the Venom?

You know what would be cool. Dropping the wraithlord for a looted lemon russ battle tank or a basilisk.

I don't think that would improve the battlefield performance much though.

Welcome EZ_MAN!  As Rasmus mentioned please give us some more information.  However a couple comments off the top of my head:

-3 Eldar Rangers won't do much.  I'd recommend dropping them altogether or taking at least 8

-I find the Shadowseer and its Psychic Powers superior to the Great Harlequin's extra attack

-I'd recommend a Harlequin's Kiss, Powerblades, and a Shuriken Pistol for the Solitaire--this maximizes his attacks and saves points too ;)

-You need more Troupes!

-Dread Masks are fun ;)

Well should i replace the rangers with 1 more DJ with a bright lance? Ill take infinity circuit's advice on the solitaire and use the points needed to make a shadow seer.
Oh can someone explain something to me about mimes.
If the holosuit doesnt apply to them do they have no type of save?

hm hm hm hm.. im not too good at giving advice but here goes,

the tau as far as i know are shooty heavyish but not so great at CC, so i dont think you will have tooo much difficulty there. other then just getting close, i advice using venoms and such.

as for tyranids, depending on how big the battle is. you might be fighting some monsterous creatures and lots of numbers of small lil tyranids, i suggest ummm possible using Harlequin kiss to guarentte making wounds in, since the Harlequin have a high WS ability it shouldnt be too hard to hit them.

with the spiritwalker (i.e. wraithlord) u should take a D-Cannon (at least im pretty sure u can take those).  If you plan on anybody getting in CC and is an IC, then give them a shuriken pistol for an extra attack in CC.  i only see one CC weapon for each IC.  You do need alot more troops.  get rid of the 3 rangers and put in more troops.  Tau have missle pods that dont need LoS to shoot you so dont really hope for cover if you want your venom out of sight from tau, because he'll most likely see wats inside it and try to kill if before he gets to you.  the nids will try to get to you anyway but make sure you charge, enspecially with the solitare and dont let him get in there alone with 20 nids or even he won't make it out (maybe).  attack fast, together, and aim for the head (or two with nids)
Commoragh... The place where everybody gets along... right?
