Warhammer 40,000 Army Lists / 750pt Tau list for a local tournament
« on: September 11, 2012, 04:19:10 PM »
Hi guys,

Been rapidly expanding my Tau collection lately. Its still a bit lacking in certain areas, but I have a lot of core stuff covered now.

So there's a tournament next weekend and I'd like a little help / advice about the army list.

Tournament is using rulebook missions, mysterious objectives, terrain, etc. Totally by the book.

I came up with three list ideas, and I'd be keen to get ssme feedback on them.



1. Gundam List

HQ Shas'el with Fusion/Plasma, Targetting Array, Multitracker, Target Lock, 2x Shield Drones
joining
Elite Crisis x2, one has Fusion/Flamer/Multitracker, one has Fusion/Burst/Multitracker

Elite Crisis x2, both with TL Missiles/Target Locks, squad leader with Shield drone and BS Filter

Troop Fire Warrior x6 plus a Shas'ui, with Photon Grenades and BS Filter

Troop Fire Warrior x6 plus a Shas'ui, with Photon Grenades and BS Filter

Heavy Broadside x2 with Adv Stabilizers, squad leader with Plasma Rifles, Multitracker, Target Lock, 2x Shield Drones


2. Plasma Spam

HQ Shas'el with TL Plasma, Target Lock, Stim Injector, BS Filter, 2x Shield Drone
joining
Elite Crisis x3 with TL Plasma / Target Lock

Troop Fire Warrior x7 plus a Shas'ui, with Photon Grenades and 1x Gun drone

Troop Fire Warrior x7 plus a Shas'ui, with Photon Grenades and 1x Gun drone

Heavy Broadside x1 with Adv Stabilizers, TL Plasma, BS Filter, 1x Shield Drone

Heavy Broadside x1 with Adv Stabilizers, TL Plasma, BS Filter, 1x Shield Drone


3. Long Range Skirmishers

HQ Shas'el with Missiles/Plasma/Targetting Array, Multitracker, BS Filter, 2x Shield Drones
joining
Elite Crisis x2 with Missiles/Plasma/Multitracker

Troop Fire Warrior x6 plus a Shas'ui with BS Filters

Troop Fire Warrior x6 plus a Shas'ui with BS Filters

Fast Pathfinders x5, 3x Rail Rifle/Target Lock, plus a Shas'ui with Photon Grenades and BS Filter
with
Transport Devilfish with Gun Drones, Dpods, Multitracker, Targetting Array

Heavy Broadside x1 with Adv Stabilizers, TL Plasma, BS Filter, Multitracker, 1x Shield Drone



All three lists feel very tight and limited to me, but i guess thats the nature of playing 750pts

Any interest in this game? They made a big splash recently and all their stuff is up for order / preorder all over the place.

Models look slightly pricey, but they pulled a good move by making their core rulebook so amazingly cheap. =)

Warhammer 40,000 Army Lists / Tau - 1000pts on the Cheap
« on: August 07, 2012, 07:46:00 PM »
I'm not new at this hobby, but I'm coming back to it after quite a long time in the wilderness (and after selling all my miniatures).

I've just come back with the launch of 6th, and settled on Tau.
So I picked up a Tau Battleforce, and Sky Ray model kit for about $200 AUD  and then sat down and worked out that if I worked at it, I could make a 1000pt army out of it without much in the way of proxying.

My question to you guys is twofold...
  • how stupid is this 1000pt list?
  • what should I add to it next?
  • seriously, how stupid?



HQ

Commander Shas'o - 165 pts
  • Cyclic Ion Blaster
  • Plasma Rifle
  • Shield Generator
  • HW Multitracker
  • HW Drone Controller - 2x Shield Drone


ELITE

Stealth Team - 205 pts
  • Stealth Suit - Targetting Array, Burst Cannon
  • Stealth Suit - Targetting Array, Burst Cannon
  • Stealth Suit Shas'vre - Targetting Array, Burst Cannon, Markerlight, HW Multitracker, HW Drone Controller, 2x Marker Drone
Commander will join with this squad


TROOPS

Fire Warrior Team - 190 pts
  • Fire Warrior x 11 - Pulse Rifle
  • Fire Warrior Shas'ui - Pulse Rifle, HW Drone Controller, 2x Marker Drone

Kroot - 105 pts
  • Kroot x 11 - Kroot Rifle
  • Shaper - Kroot Rifle


HERAVY SUPPORT

Hammerhead Gunship - 175 pts
  • Railgun
  • Smart Missile System
  • Multitracker
  • Target Lock

Sky Ray Gunship - 160 pts
  • Smart Missile System
  • Multitracker
  • Targetting Array


Total is exactly 1000 points. Which is about 150 more than it really should be, I'm thinking.
