My Tau Army
« on: December 29, 2010, 10:50:19 PM »
Here is a list of the models I have for my Tau Empire.  I'm trying to figure out how to best increase my options at the moment.  

HQ

Tau Commander  x1
Note: I can substitute in a regular Crisis Suit for a second commander if needed

Elite

Crisis Battlesuits  x17
Stealth Suits  x3

Troops

Fire Warriors w/ Pulse Rifles  x36
Fire Warriors w/ Carbine Rifles x12
Kroot Carnivores  x12
Kroot Shaper x1
Kroot Hounds x4
Krootox Rider x1
Devilfish Transport x4

Fast Attack

Gun Drones x26
Pathfinders x8
Pathfinders with Rail Rifle x3
Piranha Light Skimmer x3
Vespid Stingwing x6

Heavy

Tau Tank (can be equipped as either Hammerhead or Skyray) x2
Broadside Battle Suit x4
Sniper Drone Team x2
Heavy Gun Drones (Forge World) x4

Drones

Shield Drones x8

So other than getting at least two more Devilfish troop transports and two more squads of Sniper Drone Team and maybe one more squad of Pathfinders (with and additional Devilfish), what would be the best way to round out my army?

Should I get more Skyrays?  A second squad of three Piranha's?  I'm not sure where to go from here.

So I've been thinking more on this and here are some thoughts on what to purchase next.  Granted I would like to say EVERYTHING, but I think the following list is doable in the next two years.  I will start with the Shas'o R'myr's as he can deal with close combat (in a way).  

The extra Sky Rays are for playing Spear Head,

Tau Empire Battle Force
  • 1 Crisis Suit
  • 1 Devilfish
  • 3 XV25 Stealth Suits
  • 12 Fire Warriors (Turned into Etheral Honour Guard)
  • 12 Kroot Carnivors

HQ

SHAS'O R'MYR'S BATTLESUIT (Forge World)
COMMANDER SHAS'O R'ALAI  (Forge World)

Elite

XV81 Crisis Suit (Forge World)
Xv84 Crisis Suit (Forge World)

Troops

Devilfish
Kroot Hounds x10
Krootox x2

Fast Attack

Vespid Stingwings x4
Pathfinders x8
Pathfinder Tetra x2 (Forge World)
Piranha TX-42 x3 (Forge World)
XV9 x1 (Forge World)
XV9-01 x1 (Forge World)
XV9-04 x1 (Forge World)

Heavy Support

Sky Ray x4
Sniper Drone Team x1

Good to see you're still at it my friend!  :D

Still stopping by every day but not much to write about at the moment. Too busy getting ready to move back to the USA. Leave Australia in just over a month... heading to the new gaming mecca in PA.

Keep at it, I enjoy the reading at any rate.

Cheers!

:evil:  Forgeworld does not take Paypal but the Games Workshop site does.  So depending on how things go I may have to get a Sky Ray over Shas'o R'myr.

This is not totally bad as Shas'o R'myr can only be in an Army of 1500+ and one more Sky Ray will give me the three I need to be able to play Spear Head rules.
