That'd be cool. Seeker missiles are pretty strong (but nothing compared to what SMs can take). Let's look at the stats:

S8 AP1 (essentially a melta) Heavy 1 (so a Firewarrior can't move and shoot it)
Only 1 shot a turn
only one an army
Rather high point cost (maybe 8 points)


That way, Firewarriors get some anti-tank outside of the Heavy Support section. Seriously though, the only other AT choice is a Crisis/Stealth suit with a Fusion Blaster.

what i would like to see is you suits getting bs 4. The fire warrior squad get a drone for every 6 guys that could have a special weapon on it with a bs if 4.(ie... a marker drone, sheild drone, or a gun drone with plasma, fusion or a rail rifle upgrade.)


the stealth suits moved to the fast attack slot and the path finders made troops without needing to buy the devil fish. and the marker lights made to be assault 1 instead of being heavy 1

oh and a couple new unique characters, and maybe another hq option. Like a command squad that was not in a suite, not to give orders maybe improve leadership with in say 12 to 24 inches....

Or Missile Pod. Or Broadsides. Or Piranhas. Or even a hammerhead. lol

I thought the idea of off-board support would be good, but it'd be too complex (okay, okay, Power From Pain...) and time-consuming for players. rather they get Drones for that job, or better Transports.

Drones are relentless, regardless of type.
Firewarriors can take any type of drone.
Make Heavy Gun Drones a standard, able to buy battlesuit weapon systems for points.

Shas'vre+ become BS4.

Stealthsuits get railgun option to make their stealth field worth a damn.

Forge World Hammerhead turret options as standard.
Forge World Seeker Missile Numbers change as standard. (Up to 4 per vehicle)

Slight reduction in points to- Firewarriors, Devilfish, Kroot-shaper.

In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, there is no Common Sense.

The odd thing about this topic is I can't tell who's being sarcastic and who's being serious.

QFT. If the Tau are supposed to focus on ranged combat to the point where they eschew CQC, they should have a higher BS.

Or have better BS markerlights...? For something that expensive and useful it's pretty hit-or-miss if it's actually useful.
