Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to email the list clinic. Now let's take a look at your list!

I think, you’ve spent a few too many points on upgrades for your commander that cannot do anything bar support your Markerdrones, I would drop a few of his upgrades, give him a target lock and some weapons to make the most of his BS5 and Drone Controller, the stealth team has been boosted by 1 and a few of the squad leaders have been dropped.

Making those changes gives you this list:

Commander - Drone controller, Shield generator, Iridium Armour, Target Lock, 2 Missile Pods – 168
4x Stealth Team – 120
10 x Fire Warriors – 99
Devilfish – 80
12x Kroot, sniper rounds – 85
5x Marker Drones – 70
Hammerhead Gunship – Railgun, Sub Rounds – 130
751pts

At 750pts you have quite an effective list! Just a few tweaks to make the commander more effective and a few upgrades dropped to make room for an extra stealth team member.

Please feel free to comment with your thoughts on on small Tau lists, and if you want to submit one of your army lists to us, you can do so here listclinic.idicbeer@gmail.com
