Tau Fandex: Path Finders

Tau FandexLast Wednesday I came to the conclusion that I cant stand playing my Tau any more. I was teaching a friend how to play Tau. We were playing annihilation against a Thunder Wolf spam list and we played pretty well. My friend and I made few mistakes and we took advantage of the lack of experience that our opponents brought.

End game Them 5 Us 1. Wow we got stomped

Its not the loss that really bothers me so much. Its the lack of fun, the heart break and units just not working.

I have decided that I am going to give a stab at a Tau fandex or at least Tau fandex entries.

“Tau Pathfinders are skilled at infiltrating the battlefield and spring ambushes on the unsuspecting enemy.” Not so much.

Team leader can take special equipment.

Ok some obvious changes here and no Devil Fish. I never thought the Devil Fish fit and I plan on replacing it with a variation of the Piranha. A faster quitter vehicle.

One unit down :P


  • It’s the same sad realization I had with my Orks last year. Orks as a whole still operate pretty well but not the style I like. On the plus side, should see a new Tau codex sooner than later.
