If I were doing Tau again I would opt for a few Twinked Missile Pod XV8s. I just seemed to never be in Plasma range with a unit or two in every game and it was a waste. Not all across the list mind you.

Either way, group your XV8s. Go three Missile/Plasma or three Missile/Burst or whatever and then assign your fire lanes accordingly.

I'm still not a fan of 100+ pt nonscoring dedicated APCs..

Flechette on Hammerheads is not needed. If they are charging those than you did something where you're gonna lose anyways..

Other than that, give it a go this Saturday!

Max out your HQ unit to 3 suits.....never do 2 or 1....always 3.

Also...no TA??? you go from 3 to 4 on the BS chart.....you want this...

I agree with marc on the crisis squads, you should keep the weapons the same. Also i would get rid of the target locks and blacksun filters in exchange for multitrackers on the crisis suits. I would also drop the Flatchette dischargers and decoy launchers on your vehicles. That should open up some aditional points. The flatchette dischargers are only good in tankshock in which most cases is going to get you nuetered by a powerfist. The decoy launcers are only good against a glancing 5, which is OK in this addition because i lends you one more turn to evacuate or shoot, but not moving, your tanks are a write-off. also in 5th the are nerfing the skimmer rules so that skimmers will not get the autoglance rule making the decoy launchers next to useless

man.....you are such an ORK HEAD!!!

You don't need all of those TL on your suits...make one of them your squad leader and give them the Hard wired...this allows your squad to have the same ability.
