So after leaving 40k shortly after 6th came out I wanted to start up 40k again. I have already chosen Tau as my first army to begin with and have thought up a few lists to get be started. All of them are about 1850pts. I've noticed quite a few changes in the 7th edition codeceis and I'm loving all the formation stuff, as I think it adds a lot to the versatility of an army that otherwise was pretty cookie cutter prior to addition of formations. But anyways, here are the list... some of them are just built for fun to see if they'd be good and I'm still a little fuzzy on how formations work, and how you can take them and might need help with clarification.

One thing I am confused on, it states in the Tau Codex that the formations can also count toward your Hunter Cadre formation an also be in the other formation you chose. Am I interpreting this correctly?
