PostSubject: Tau Questions   Tue Dec 09, 2008 8:15 am

So what are peoples thoughts on Vespid Sting wings and Sniper Drone Teams. I was thinkin of maybe takin one unit of them and adding them in to my list and see how they do. I know the Vespid guns have short range but they seem strong enough to cause the SM's to drop unless something special comes along. I also know that I can get 9 Rail Rifles that are also anti SM. I know they are a bit expensive but they seem like they would be good units to take. So say I take one 20 man unit of kroot and 1 11 man unit of Stingwings and three Sniper Drone teams as one unit.

I have yet to try Vespid. I just can't see them getting across the board to be effective. A great advantage of Tau is the ability to deny your opponent targets. I am thinking a unit of Vespid with AP3 weaponry trying to cross the board for range, would make a large and lonely target.

Sniper drones are aces. I would run a huge unit of 9 every time if I did not depend on my 3 Hammerheads so much. They are the bane of expensive MEQ units. That said, with the plethora of 4+ cover saves these days, sometimes they leave me wondering.

20 man unit of Kroot. Yikes, your brave. I would probably run 2 10man units. That way if they break (ld7), you only lose half of them.

I did actually end up splitting the 20 man to two 10 man, and I was sayin I was gonna march the vespids across the board to attack I will have them saved to protect people. They make a nasty treat that people dont think of. I found that I like the a mix of XV88s and HH's. I was thinkin of dropping one HH and put in the 3 units (aka 9 sniper drones) for some hefty nasty fire power. Plus with the support of marker lights from the pathfinders and their spotters it makes things so beautiful.
