Left Flank Hammer- 1 XV25 unit, 1 Ghostkeel

Right Flank Hammer- 1 XV25 unit, 1 Ghostkeel

Sickle- Fusion Commander, crisis suits, Gun drones

Roles:

Anvil: (also called Castle) Core of any tau Kauyon force, a heavy bombardment force nothing really special here except shadowsun who let you kauyon twice or more likely Mont'ka and then Kauyon

Left and Right Flank Hammer: deploy to opposite sides of the board the goal of these units is to provide target saturation across the board to divide the enemy and kite them with the ghostkeel/Stealth suits fast movement. Meanwhile the anvil fires away. If the enemy decides to go straight for the castle/Anvil they can still kite the enemy and pound them from behind.

Sickle - The Sickle is a Turn 2 drop (although the missle pod suits can be deployed with the anvil. Quad fusion commander drops with the burst cannon suits to kill a transport and the bodyguards take care of what pops out. The plasma suits are dropped with the gun drone unit to go hunting for elite units.

If you swap out your marker drones for pathfinders, you won't have to deal with drone controllers.

Thought about that but the drones pull double duty
