Hi, I just got some tau models off a mate and im looking for suggestions to expand my army. Currently i have: 5 pathfinders (3 with railguns) 12 fire warriors 2 crisis battlesuits 1 devilfish In an old thread som1 said somthing about vespids? what are they? Cheers
You might want to get some heavy support units. A Hammerhead is very durable unit, a railgun and burst cannons is good vs. almost everything. An ion cannon is a very powerful weapon vs. light vehicles and all infantry. However, doing so removes the ability to take out heavier vehicles.
Broadsides give you a lot of antitank firepower but are not as fast or as durable as the Hammerhead.
Another unit of Firewarriors can't hurt either.
I hope this helps.
vespids are a new ace which, like tau and kroot, dedicated themselves to fight for the greater good, they look like insects and if you go on www.games-wokshop.co.uk and then type in the search bar vespid you will find out about them
Erm... I'd throw in at least 2 more Firewarrior squads and a unit or 2 of Kroot.
more fire warriors oh and more crisis suits with a commander in a crisis suit and wait for the new tau which are coming out sooner or later
Heavy Support with that many troops number 1: u cant in proper game Number 2: heavy support is boring and sucks for Tau (no offense) Get Kroot a commander and maybe some more fire warriors Tau are good for fire power and a mass of it too. gettin heavy support will mean ure opponent will pwn ure ground forces and blow up ur tank + dont get an ion cannon on ure tank as the railgun can easily beat it in every way
