SM/Tau Force [2k]
« on: March 31, 2014, 08:15:38 PM »
This is a list inspired by a piece of artwork on DA. Link here.

The idea (for this list) is that a Human colony has found a way to mass produce power armour, and with Tau assistance create AI that can control it. The Tau utilise these "Marines" as mobile shields for their less resilient Fire Warriors. The "Marines" are controlled by a lone Space Marine (a real one :P) who defected to the Tau. The Local Human forces also built fast War-bikes, and so their most skillful riders join the army to act as mobile support to the rest. When the Humans are forced to command the battle themselves, they equip veteran soldiers with experimental Power Armour that incorporates Warp technology for defencive, offencive and mobility purposes (ei, Legion of the damned in the second list).

I made two lists for this. The first represents the Tau taking more control of the field (aybe against a foe they have the equipment to take out more decisively) while the second has the Space Marine take command (The Tau may have been pulled away to more important engagements). The listsare also reflective of intended conversions as well. I like a challenge, so I'd be converting as many units as possible, rather than just buying the kits for them. I have my madness, we'l leave it at that ;)

Spoiler: Tau as Primary List (click to show/hide)


I guess you could call these Offensive and Defensive lists :P

Any critique or suggestions, or questions?

I am 95% certain that you can only have 1 Cyclic Ion Blaster in a detatchment.

Ah, so you're right. Missed that small detail ^_^;;

Gives me 10 extra pts to play with for each list, as I'll swap the Bodyguard CIBs for Burst Cannons. I'll add an extra Biker to the Tau-list, and probably a Meltagun to the LotD unit in the SM-list.
