New Year's Resolutions and a List!

On my Facebook page, I shared some resolutions that I set out for myself this coming year. I'll share those again:
1. Finish building and painting a 1850 Tau list that is tournament ready.
 2. Finish painting and updating bases on my Grey Knights. 
3. Finish my modern and legacy magic decks. 
4. Beat bloodborne and dark souls 2 and 3. 
5. Organize my excess nerd collections and consolidate.
6. Finish a song of ice and fire.
7. Once a week, add some sort of content to my blog/Facebook page.
8. Exercise more.
9. Lose some weight (8 and 9 go together).

As part of that, I have been continuing the Facebook Live streaming, which has been fun for sure. I figured I wanted to discuss some 40k stuff on my blog, since it is an easier medium to work with.

So, let's delve into a list for this year. Tau!

Imperial Bastion [Comms Relay]


One of the commanders jumps around/deep strikes with the marker/flamer unit, one of the commanders works the Comms Relay up top, while buffing the Broadsides. Otherwise, the rest of the list is pretty self explanatory: Crisis suits deep strike for ObjSec units, with some guns to hose down marines (a huge chunk of my local meta.) Riptides shoot, as do the sky rays and Broadsides.

Thoughts or opinions on this list?
