Hello. So I have had a box of unbuilt tau sitting for years but with the new PA coming soon I have felt the need to brush the dust off and give them a go. I know drone spam is the new thing and yes my list has a ton but I wanted to try a few units I don’t really see in tournaments. Any tips are welcome!

The only thing I feel like that needs to be explained is the Coldstar command/ghostkeel/Yvahra will roll together and wreak whatever they can while everything else chills together wrapped my the drone.

Looks pretty good. The things I question are:
1. Plasma Rifles on the Riptides. Smart Missile Systems are just better. More shots, more range and can shoot indirectly.
2. You want a Shield Generator on that Y'Vahra. It will draw a ton of fire. Same goes for the Ghostkeel.

Other than that, it's a pretty solid list.
