New player. What gear should my crisis suits have?

Post#1 » Jul 17 2017 12:03

Hi.

K so bought a start collecting tau box set.

I'm wondering how I should equip the crisis suits. For both 7th and 8th.

Also how would you magnatize the weapons?

Also what drones should I use.

There is only one real answer to that: Equip your Crisis so they fill a role your list is still lacking.

As I said in another thread, new people approach list building the wrong way. Don't think "what can I do with this unit". Think "what is my list lacking and which unit could fill that role".

As for magnetizing, there are plenty tutorials on the net and youtube. Not much you can do wrong there so they all should be good to follow.

Don't include Drones in units with 7e rules. For 8th edition just take Gun Drones and you're good.

Not much discussion about 7th anymore on ATT, maybe someone can help you though if your group still plays 7th. Anyway, here are some loadouts people have had success with:

3x XV8s w/ 8x Cyclic Ion Blasters, 1x Drone Controller, 5x Gun Drones, 1x Marker Drone
3x XV8s w/ 3x Fusion Blasters, 6x Flamers, 6x Gun Drones
3x XV8s w/ 9x Plasma Rifles, 6x Gun Drones

Drones are purchased with XV8s, and drop in via Manta Strike with them, then become their own units. Keep that in mind! Anyway, Gun Drones are by far the best, while Marker Drones are nice durable Markerlights but it's good to keep them near a Drone Controller.
