Made in ca
On a Canoptek Spyder's Waiting List






So I have been struggling to find a nice small army to start for my next one and came up with something like this for the Tau as a starting point. I have some Tau models from 6th and looking to expand on it with some of the new additions.

Wondered if I can get some pointers on this list from fellow Tau players. Not looking for anything super competitive but looking for something somewhat fun to play that packs a punch. Also not sure what Sept is best for this list.

I put the Ethereal in there to buff the troops around him, the Cadre to also provide buffs as they are both somewhat cheap choices. And then went heavy on Commander to go hunting around the field with his impressive 20" movement.

Broadsides in there to provide some Anti-tank support and some pathfinders to light things up and assist.

The stealths are to go run around and be generally sneaky.

Any pointers would be fantastic.
