New Tau Lolgasm - 3 Riptides & Dreadknight?

Lets get straight to it.
This is just pure fun.
This is for the connoisseur of massive mecha robots.
Now, will it work? well, I have to be honest, this is me trying to make a silly ridiculous concept into something that may actually work.
The biggest issue is troops.. they are a bit shit here to be honest.
Keeping the firepower as the primary offensive mechanism here is one thing, but with an inability to score.. well..just have to contest.

Yeah, we all know how well that is likely to turn out..

The list is built on a basic premise: Three Riptides and a Dreadknight.
Cool as fuck.
Here we go:
Crisis Commmander: Missile Pod, Target Lock, Drone Controller, Iridium Armour (T5, 2+), Puretide Engram Neurochip, 2 Marker Drones
Riptide - Ion Accelerator, SMS
Riptide - Ion Accelerator, SMS
Riptide - Ion Accelerator, TL Fusion Blaster
6 Fire Warriors
6 Fire Warriors
Aegis Defence Line - Quad Gun
3 Markerlight Drones
3 Broadsides - High Yield Missile Pods, SMS
3 Broadsides - High Yield Missile Pods, SMS
2 Broadsides - High Yield Missile Pods, SMS
Grey Knight Allies:
Dreadknight - Heavy Incinerator
8 Warrior Acolytes, 3 Storm Bolters
Note: Crisis Commander joins the 3 drones to make it  strong for Target Locked Markerlight support using BS5. It has to be this way because the purchased Commander drones are slightly cheaper.
Is it hardcore tournament strong? Fuck no.
Will you have immense fuck dicking about with it? Fuck yes.
Do I own the necessary models.... um, actually.. yes.. once those "pre-orders" arrive lol £35 for a Riptide with 30% off was simply too good..


  1. Instead of Coteaz, you should be running a Grand Master or Mordrak to make some of your MCs scoring. Alleviates some of the issues with poor troops. if you can afford it

    1. Lol.. Good idea! But that costs a lot...then we have to buy "real" troops for the grey knights! Haha

  2. where do the 3 drones come from? i thought you buy them unit min. 4-strong
