My Dream Army

Well.. one of!

A few years ago I used to play Tau, they were one of my main two armies, the other being Iron Warriors, I always chose them over the IW’s because of the speed that was in the army, I loved it. Sadly most of the Tau are either broken, sold or in a box in the depths of a cupboard.

So I used my old Vassal40k module to make a nice image of what I would have in my 1500 tau army for 5th Edition.

Shas’el Commander – Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Targetting array, HW multi tracker = 97

1 x Crisis Suit – Twin Missile Pods, Blacksun Filter = 46

2 x Crisis Suits – Twin Missile Pods, Targetting arrays, Team leader with Target Lock = 116

2 x Crisis Suits – Twin Missile Pods, Targetting arrays, Team leader with Target Lock = 116

8 x FireWarriors = 80
– Devilfish – SMS, Multi Tracker, Targeting Array, Disruption Pod = 120

8 x FireWarriors = 80
– Devilfish – SMS, Multi Tracker, Targeting Array, Disruption Pod = 120

8 x FireWarriors = 80
– Devilfish – SMS, Multi Tracker, Targeting Array, Disruption Pod = 120

Hammer Head – Railgun, SMS, Multi Tracker, Target Lock, Disruption Pod = 180

Hammer Head – Railgun, SMS, Multi Tracker, Target Lock, Disruption Pod = 180

Sky Ray – Multi Tracker, Targeting Array, Disruption Pod = 165

=1500

And here’s an image of it, I find visually looking at the army, even if it’s just squares on paper, helps you see things:

Now.. I know I have a tonne of Fire Warriors and spare crisis weapons laying around..

    Being an ardent believer in the Greater Good, I applaud your choice of dream army! But I must say that you would be doing yourself quite the disservice if you limited your Crisis Suit load-out to only TL Missile Pods.

    Here is a list that I think you would be interested in:

    It's from Old Shatter Hands blog, “The Tau of War.” A great blog. It's a 1750 list, but I think it's pretty good!

    Interesting list.
    Although you're taking a Skyray, and NOT taking a Pathfinder team.
    There's something oddly wrong there…
