He’s not amazing in melee but he’s not terrible either and can handle himself against most non-commander models. AV11 gives you decent resilience to troop weapons if you watch your facings, and a good turn of speed means you can scare the inevitable enemy light vehicles with sneaky side/rear facing shots. Stealth suits also make fine Leaders in a pinch, since they’re pretty tough to hit/kill. For 45 points, a Shas’vre with three flamers and the Demolitions specialism will absolutely tear through enemy models at close range and be a complete nightmare to even consider charging. You also have access to the Master of War Stratagem, which gives you a powerful shooting boost to every model within 6″. Many people have tried to make Breachers work in kill team and many people have failed. Of course, you're going to spend the extra 10 points for sniper rifles, because it's predictable wounding regardless of what your opponent brings. Or you could take a Single Suit (22), make him a Crisis Shas'vre (32 Points) and give him 2 Burst Cannons (52 Points) for the ultimate storm of infantry killing Dakka. That they don’t work on Pulse Blasters is a real crime, and it makes their value really niche. The Cadre Fireblade’s primary benefit is being the cheapest Commander option you can take, and having access to the Strategist specialism so he can generate you an extra CP each turn. Kroot Rifles – Give you +1 S and comes with a boltgun attached.
They have 2 guns, which means 2 chances at injury rolls. This build is going to be scariest with the Shooting specialism, where at level 1 you can re-roll hit rolls of 1 for your Commander and at level 2 you can take Trick-Shooter to remove the to hit roll penalty from shooting at obscured targets.
The fusion blaster is the better option against elite kill teams, but you’ll want to make sure it has support from a Comms specialist. Comms and Sniper are the best choices here, but Demolitions is also great. You can take a basic team of 6 Firewarriors, 3 Stealth Suits, and 4 Pathfinders, with 12 points left, or take a Team of 6 Firewarriors, 4 Pathfinders, and 2 Piranha's with 22 points left for upgrades, and seeing as even the Tau's most basic troop weapon has a 1 in 3 chance of scoring a glancing hit against AV 10 and a 1 in 6 against AV 11. You don’t want them in every game, but you’ll almost always want the option to run one.
On the other hand, the Commander can also just take the Strategist specialism and generate an extra CP per turn to blow on Tactics. Here losing the -1 to hit your model for being obscured by the drone is offset by the harsh penalty of taking multiple damage rolls, so keep your drone out of LOS if you can but within 3″ of the model it’d protect. 42pts nabs you a Crisis Suit with a Twin Linked Plasma Rifle. They can often body block mid or low tier melee models like Ork Boyz or Genestealers to limit enemy movement and fly away the next turn, or charge models with good shooting like Marine Veterans with Heavy Bolters to keep them from shooting for multiple turns. In Arena, you’ll need to change things up. If you want to make them specialists, Comms and Heavy are both fine options, with the latter being helpful on Burst Cannons for the Extra Bullets tactic. Your email address will not be published. Putting aside that being really dangerous for T’au, the way Kill Team handles range means that you aren’t getting full accuracy on short-range shots until you’re within 3″. Plus you only take a mortal wound if you roll a 1 to hit on overcharge.
The Tau meme list was my local meta for a while.
