So I'm planing to get back into 40K and since the new allies rules, I want to do a Tau and Gue'vesa army using Elysian Droop Troop models as IG. I want to add a cheap IG HQ, Veterans and a Hydra (preferably, 2) and maybe a Vendetta to help theme it too the Elysian models more. The Hydra(s) will be converted Elysian buggies from forge world (Which I need the bits to do that, will be making a trading thread later for that).
So I'm changing around my old Tau army list so I can add the IG. I want to keep the list as Mechanized as possible. Now bear in mind, I don't actually have an IG Codex yet so I am asking for help building the army list and setting up the units.
Here is the Tau list I use;
Shas'O Plasma/Missile/Shield/HW Multi Traker.
2 XV8s, Plasma/fusion/Multi and Missile/Fusion/Multi.
2 X 12 Fire Warriors/Team Leader in Warfish (SMS/Multi/Target Array/Target Lock/Disruption Pod) Obviously the Dis pod and TL are going away, thinking Fletchette in their place.
Kroot, I can't remember the exact number but it was large, had a Shaper and Kroot hounds.
Can't remember if I had any in here, don't think I did.
2 X Hammerheads with Railguns, 2 burst Multi Trackers, Target Locks and Disruption Pod. I'll be swapping Targetlock/DisPod for Fletchettes here too.
From memory, that's it. Might have been an extra suit or drones in FA but I can't remember now. Long time since I used this list.
I will be creating a Project Log when I start building this army. I'll be buying some new models, mostly suits and repainting what I can. I did like my old colour scheme but I like the one I use on my O'Shovah army better and will be painting all the models like that so they match him too.
