2000 pt Tau with Allies?
« on: September 03, 2012, 03:33:26 PM »
So here's a 2000 point tau w/ allies list I was thinking about...

Using 'counts as' allies, I'd model some alternate weapons onto vespid and run them as Blood Angel assault troops.

87 - Tau commander, missile pod, plasma gun, multitracker

149 - Crisis suits:
leader, missile pod, plasma gun, multi-t, drone controller
suit, missile, plasma, multi-t
x2 gun drones

149 - Crisis suits:
leader, missile pod, plasma gun, multi-t, drone controller
suit, missile, plasma, multi-t
x2 gun drones

154 - crisis suits:
leader, twin-linked flamer, missile pod, drone controller
x2 suits, twin linker flamer, missile pod
x2 gun drones

90 - x9 fire warriors

90 - x9 fire warriors

105 kroot squad:
x10 kroot
kroot ox

105 - kroot squad:
x10 kroot
kroot ox

65 - piranha, fusion

205 - Broadside team:
leader, plasma guns, multi-t, drone controller
suit, plasma guns, multi-t
x2 shield drones

205 - Broadside team:
leader, plasma guns, multi-t, drone controller
suit, plasma guns, multi-t
x2 shield drones

Blood angles (vespid) allies:

125 - librarian, jump pack

235 - assault squad:
x7 dudes
x2 meltas
sarge w/ fist

235 - assault squad:
x7 dudes
x2 meltas
sarge w/ fist

So I've got 4 stationary shooty troops, 4 combat squaded mobile h-t-h troops, 3 mobile shooty squads (one of which is last-ditch equipped), 2 broadside squads, and a speedy blocker.

I know traditional wisdom speaks against kroot ox, and to use the points from the two of them to get one more crisis, but I'm thinking they'll get some extra time on the board due to having ASM out there doing their thing. *shrug*

I have all the models, or can easily convert from existing, short of the vespid, so, thoughts?


Looks good but Crisis suits with twin-linked flamers instead of missiles are a bit silly. Pay the extra points per model and get a hull point machine munching unit instead.

Not sure about Krootox as you said but see how they go - I think not well as Kroot really loved 5th edition cover rules but they could manage well. If not, change Kroot to some more FW and then grab the extra Suits with any leftover points.
