It's funny that they added the 50% deployment rule to counter cheesy null deployments. Ha, we Tau will put 100 points on the table and 1400 points in space! Good enough for me
Especially because we can do pseudo null-deployment with Stealth Suits and Ghostkeel. Those don't get placed in reserves, but they get replaced after deployment.
That and stealth suits are actually useful now. Throw a 2 point velocity tracker on 1 of them and the whole unit is BS 3+ vs anything with the 'fly' keyword
You can do a lot with Stealth Suits.
Velocity Tracker for some anit-air (althought their weapons are fairly short ranged for that taks), Markerlight, Drone Controller and Marker Drones for a Suit based Markerlight source, Homing Beacon for some Crisis fun (either flamer/FB or anything else and then charge a second unit), or as simple annoying unit with ATS on Burst Cannons and Shield Gen on Fusion Blaster.
One of my absolute favorite units this edition. I liked them before but now they are finally worth their points as well.
