About Xenos and Proud

This is a small blog about my Warhammer 40,000 hobby. I will try to concentrate on the tactics behind the general game and my Xenos armies but there will be the odd post about random stuff.

About Me

My photo
Aberdeen, United Kingdom
Xenos and Proud is an 18 year old from Scotland who has been playing 40K for the last 4 years. He loves the 'under-dog' xenos armies, namely his Tyranid Gorgon splinter fleet, his Saim-Hann windrider host, his Tau Vleastean Hunter-cadre and the newest addition, the Shadowfax Corsairs. Although his tactics are mostly 'borrowed', his painting skills still 'developing' and his luck becoming evermore 'ridiculous' he continues to play, paint and roll in the hope that one day things will get better.

Further Tau List Tweaking

I have again changed my mind. Sorry about the erratic-ness but I will eventually find any army list which suits me and I think I may have found the skeleton of it.

Lesson 12: Always include a funny photo....
Contradictory to what I was saying yesterday I have decided to go entirely foot-slogging. No tanks what-so-ever as if I included one or two they would be mowed down in seconds. However as I have so frequently been fretting about is all those missile launchers and lascannons will now be turned on my crisis suits and broadsides. I think they can survive it if I keep to cover and learn to use JSJ effectively. It was always going to be a learning experience anyway.


Shas'el Fal'shia Taal Doran'sha'is 
 Twin-Linked Plasma Rifle 
 Positional Relay

2 Shas'vre Crisis Suits 
 Twin-Linked Plasma Rifles 
 Targeting Arrays 
= 245 


3 Shas'ui Crisis Suits 
 Twin-Linked Missile Pod 
= 141

 Plasma Rifles 
 Missile Pods

 Team Leader 
 Bonding Knife 
 Hard-Wired Target Lock 
 2 Shield Drones 30

3 Sniper Drone Teams 240

Total = 1437

So with some points to spare what can I do with them? I thought of adding drones to the crisis suits so they can 'take one for the team' but I am not sure as there are other options. I could just add more drones to the drone squads or even add more weapons or systems to the command team or add team leaders to the Shas'uis.

What do you think?

  1. Looks good, use your drones to screen the enemy and to grant cover saves to those behind. With the leftover points, I'd suggest getting drones on your xv8 teams. That really makes those lascannons worth less when you just assign the hits to 10 point gun drones.
