Ok you need loads more Fire Warriors, remember these guys ave the strongest basic infantry weapon in the game. And as for the Vespids, the only reason GW created Vespids was because of Termis, Tau Didnt have enought low AP weapons and all a termis squad had to do was... Deep Strike, Close Combat, Splat!, Consolidate, Close combat, Splat!... you get the picture, So Vespids have something lik St.3 AP.2 Assault 2 weapons and they are equipped with wings a.k.a Jumpacks. So unless yo are having major Termi trouble, you won't need Vespids.

I don't really know about the vespids or the forthcoming sniper drones, but you should bulk up on fire warriors. Kroot won't win that many combats, have poor armour, and can't shoot as well, so I'd stick to what your good at - large mobile volleys of fire. Have any of your pathfinders got rail rifles? They're worth it as they get through most armour, pin, or jump in the devilfish and run up to 24" if anyone gets too close. Get them into a good sniping position with your free first turn. I haven't experimented properly yet, but a squad of gun drones looks useful. They are quick, and can pin people down. Maybe good as a bodyguard for your commander. For your big guns I'd get Broadsides instead of another hammerhead. The rail gun is twin linked, and if they get twin linked plasma rifles too, a couple will take out half a squad of termis on their own. I find you don't use the rail blast anyway- opponents troops are taken out by yours. Stealth suits are good for bigger battles (bigger boards), and have a good few shots. Nice mobility too. Don't know why, but they don't work that well for me. Probably using them wrong. My favourites are crisis suits. Pop out from cover, kill half a heavy squad, pop back in. An ethereal is worth having to help morale checks- passing to regroup, or failing to break cos your only going to lose the combat anyway. Just make sure his squad, if he's got one, isn't charged. If he dies your in trouble. Basically, it all depends on how much money you want to spend, how many points you want to have, and who your fighting.

Vespid will rock, you will want them. hammerheads are the best tank in the game as far as value for points goes, and kroot are not to be underestimated :D :rolleyes: :mad: :smokin: :nodding: :uhoh: :beer: __________________________________________________________________ AND THEY SAY I'M MAD

yea i check that site everyday and i have to tell you get like 10-20 of them they are cheap, and good for charging the enemy. But also get a lot of battlesuits they're good
