1500 Point Farsight Enclave List
« on: March 21, 2015, 06:35:38 PM »
Hey everyone, I have been working on a Farsight Enclave list for the past couple weeks over at ATT and TO. The feedback there was useful, but dried up pretty quickly after the first couple posts I have been adjusting the list through a series of small changes and think I am honing in on something viable but really need a third party to point out potential pitfalls.

List Explanation:
The Commander is a twist on the classic Mark'O, joining the 4 other marker drones and boosting their BS to form the bulk of this list's lights. Farsight Enclaves does not have access to Tau special gear, and thus no iridium; he was using FNP to boost his base survivability,  but after nearly being instant-killed without an armour save I figured maybe the shield generator might be the way to go (maybe the pendant for a worse save but anti-psyker defenses instead). The AFP is just for fun, since a single missile pod wasn't doing much damage.
The riptides are just classic IA riptides. They provide anti-meq/teq and deter vehicles entering into my combat space with their meltas and smash attacks.
The stealth suits are the most recent addition to the list (dropping a burst cannon squad in exchange for them), and the main reason for their inclusion was for their Infiltrator ability. Infiltrating enemies have the potential to really catch this list off guard, so having infiltrators of my own to counter them can be helpful.
The burst cannon suits are anti-infantry and are my only real 'troop' as far as my scoring expectations go.
The two fusion blaster crisis suits are my anti-AV13 and up. They do have the objective secured rule, but usually they will be deepstriking into the enemy's deployment zone to terminate tanks; this will rarely end happily for them.
Marker drones obviously work with the Commander as mentioned above.
The skyrays provide anti-air and transport fire while serving as a secondary markerlight platform.
The Broadsides round out that anti-AV12 and under defenses and have enough weight of fire they could even be used against infantry.

Thoughts?
