4 games, 4 different lists, same adversary

Post#1 » Jul 21 2017 12:19

Hey all,

I started warhammer 40k last year (so on 7th edition) and decided to go for Tau on the 8th edition.

Here is what I have at the moment :

- 2 commanders
- 1 fireblade
- 3 10-man Strike Teams
- 1 10-man pathfinder (no rails or ions)
- 2 3-man XV8 Crisis suits
- 1 Broadside + 2 missile drones
- 1 Ghostkeel + 2 stealth drones
- 1 Ethereal
- 2 3-man Stealth suits
- 1 Longstrike
- 1 Hammerhead
- 18 Gun Drones
- 4 Shield Drones

The reason why I am posting this is because with my buddy, who is playing necrons, we would like to play 4 games starting with 500 points, then 750 points, 1000 and finally 1500 points.
Do you guys have any suggestions for a list for each game ? I am quite lost...

Thanks in advance and happy war gaming.
Ruth

Here's a list I put together in BS for 750P.

Utilizing Stealth suits as drone controllers, 2 commanders for objectives/situational deep striking/target priority and pathfinders for rear guard/markerlight support.

4 lists at 500, 750, 1000, and 1500? Sounds like a plan! I'm going to assume that your Battlesuits are magnetized and/or can switch their weapons out, and that you'd prefer not to use conventional Tau tactics. Also sadly, the Broadside, Ghostkeel, and Ethereal aren't too powerful so we'll leave them out of the lists. Here goes!

These lists are cumulative, with a few exceptions. First, note that the Multi-tracker on the Fusion Blaster Stealthsuit disappears outside of the 500pt list. Second, the 500pt list has a squad of 5 Gun Drones, rather than a squad of 6 Gun Drones. Finally, at 1500pts there is only one Stealthsuit squad, not two, and it has Shield Drones as opposed to Gun Drones.

What do you think?
