2k list and battleplan

Post#1 » Jul 01 2017 11:00

This is my first list for 8th edition, and my first list for Tau ever. I have just got back in after a few years away. I like boots on the ground type of lists. I'm not an overly competitive player but I want something that will be fun to play and not get wiped off the table.
Battalion detachment-
Commander
4 fb
2x shield drones

fireblade

Fire warriors x 10 with shas'ui and ml

Vespid x6

My plan is to have the fire warriors no more than 18" apart with the fireblades on each side. The shield drones will be screening them with the broadsides behind all of that.
The pathfinders will be opposite each other, ahead of the gun line preferably in terrain. The enemy can target them or the gun line
The breachers I see as interdiction units set up midway between the gun line and the enemy
The commander and crisis suits will probably be together, maybe in reserve to come in where needed.
Shadowsun and the slealth suits will pop in behind the enemy hopefully taking out anything back there.
The vespid are kind of a wild card. I imagine them sweeping in to pick off targets of priority.
It's kind of a generic plan but I'm new to tau.
Any suggestions?
