Ok, well game is tonight-2K. I think I have thought and written down about 12 different lists. I have walked back and forth on going traitor and taking the AX1-0. I have made a few forms of the whale of Fury out of humor. I have switched back and forth from Farsight too Tau over and over. I also feel like for all that effort I have found nothing that makes me feel "safe". I did post some thoughts here that did occur to me (http://advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=21587&p=275553#p275553
Nut and Bolt of what I am thinking of running:
Tau Codex(I just keep coming back with the fact that the Tigershark fits the Farsight team and the Orca fits the Tau better. There is just more synergy.)
The army will have elements:
The anchor - The goal of this force is Titan kill and soften the enemy
Void shield generator (3 shields)
R'varna and Riptides/XV88s form a firebase
The push - Capture objectives and kill the defense
Orca with FWs and Snipers attack the back field.
The map - I place objectives as far from my fire base as I can. Force my opponent to attack away from the objectives.
Yes I give up +1 initiative and risk the Titan. Eh, that is how this cookie crumbles.
