An awesome display of armoured might, the Linebreaker Bombardment is a Stratagem found in Codex: Space Marines that combines the power of 3 Vindicators to blast a firestorm of high-explosive rounds at an unfortunate enemy unit.
This bundle includes 3 Vindicators; each is a 99-component plastic kit that builds this Rhino-based siege tank with a demolisher cannon, hunter-killer missile and storm bolter, and includes options for a closed or open hatch.

Also, it's either Codices or Codexes (because GW hurr durr), but not Codecs.

1 CP: Choose a XV104 Riptide Battlesuit; if there are at least two other XV104 Riptide Battlesuits within 6" of it, it may shoot X times.
What number would X need to be for those 1200 points to be viable?

If you could let 3+ riptides use that ability to fire twice in a turn, avoid the wound lost for Nova Charging, and then use an ability along the lines of:
1 CP: Choose 3+ Tau Empire units; all shooting attacks made by models in those units in this turn must target the same enemy unit and they gain +1 to hit in the shooting phase.
Would be pretty good and fluffy.
Using two stratagems like this together (along with maker lights) would make 3 riptides quite threatening to big tough models/large units (knights, super heavy tanks, Imperial Guard blobs...) while limiting their ability to wipe multiple units out.
