200p battle against Tyranids

Post#1 » May 16 2017 11:15

Hi warriors of the Greater Good. Last time I posted to this board, I was preparing a army that I had not thought through. I ended up creating a discussion about what sort of killteam the match was. That doesn't matter. SO I have a army list I would like to run through the other, more experienced Tau players out there.

My Goal is to create a 200p army with no HQ or Heavy Attack troops which can face up to a 200p Tyranid army with the same restictions. I know the Tyranids I am playing have 3 Tyranid Warriors, and at least 12 Horgagaunts. I currently have the following list of troops, but need the community to help me choose options. My playstyle is using the tactic Kayoun to lure the enemy into a trap, and I try to avoid using things like EMP grenades, as they do not work on living organisms like the Tyranids. These are the troops I have:

Troops:

5x Pulse-Blaster equipped Breacher Team

5x Pulse-rifle equipped Strike Team

2x Gun drone

1x DS8 Tactical Support Turret

Fast Attack:
5x Pulse-Carbine Equipped Pathfinders

2x Ion-rifle equipped Pathfinders

1x Recon Drone

1x Markerlight Drone

Elite
1x XV8 Crisis Suit

The XV8 is equipped with a Plasma Rifle, a Shield Generator, and a Missile Pod. Unfortunately, the wargear options are not magnetized. I'm not sure what the pathfinders have, as the kit does not exactly come with a guide for what the bits of wargear actually are. For ages I've thought the Markelight drone had a gun, and the boxy camera was the markerlight. Turns out the markerlight Is the gun, and I had it wrong the entire time.

Please, I need advice. All helpful advice is accepted.
