First time Cadre building 1500 point army

Post#1 » Jan 16 2017 11:50

Hey everyone! First time building a Tau army and I'd love some feedback on what to add or subtract to make my list more effective. My idea is pretty straight forward. Have the Mark'o join a unit of ML drones and light fools up. The firewarriors and stormsurge will sit back and hold the line and slowly move up to secure objectives. The crisis team will DS in when the enemy get to close for comfort while the riptide tears up any advancing units. The pathfinders will act as a secondary ML platform and hopefully sit in cover and draw the enemies fire away from my main force. Lwt me know what ya think.

Hunter Cadre Formation:

HQ

Commander. 168
Plasmax2 30, DC 8, TL 5, PEN 15, Irid 25

OK. Bit of helpful advice here:

1. Don't write the 'Plasma Times Two' as 'Plasmax2'. It looks like Plasmax 2, which is not what you were going for (I hope...)

2. Be a little bit neater. I don't know how many people on this forum decide to write shoddy army lists. It isn't that I'm OCD (I'm not), but it causes the quality of your posts to go down, and causes people to lose reputation in the eyes of the community. Even if that loss is subconscious.

3. You need to state your objective a bit clearer. Same with what your strategy is. I personally have no idea what ML means.

No offense, while this is generally a good advise many should follow, but what ML means should be clear in a Tau forum. :D
