Found a small error in the computation of the points cost for the Kroot Hound stand. Apparently, I valued its Move as if it were 10cm rather than the actual 15cm. That is fixed now.

As an aside, I would suggest renaming the Tau "Hunter Cadre" as there is a Kroot "Hunter" Company as well. This can be confusing. I would suggest renaming the Tau version to "Broadside Cadre", as the Kroot Company actually contains stands that are called Hunter and the Tau does not.

Hi!

I'll change the name as to differentiate them better the next time I update.

Thanks!

The thing is that in the fluff, "hunter cadre" is the actual name given to the standard Tau unit of organization. Hunter Cadres are, unless they have changed recently, the largest permanent formation in the Tau military. All larger groups are formed on an ad hoc basis out of multiple hunter cadres.

A "Hunter Cadre" in the current, NetEpic Gold book, consists of the following:

Shas'el and 2 Shas'vre
Broadside Battlesuit Team (4 XV88 stands)
3x Fire Warrior detachments (4 Fire Warrior stands per detachment)
BP 10 (15), Morale 3, VP 8 (12), Cost 800 (1200)

In other words, 19 stands of troops (or 12*5=60 Fire Warriors and 7 Battlesuits). Is that really the standard unit of organization for Tau? I strongly doubt it. In any event, it is not for NetEpic.
