well .... the battle force can be used as an army but not a very effective one for tau ... a good list is XV 8's XV88's/hammerheads pathfinders and squads of 6 fire warriors in devilfish ... also maybe a large kroot meat shield but actually i guess you could do a bit of damage with it but im not the best at making lists sorry
I feel his pain, soon I will posses my first Tau. 24 fire warriors, a drone and 3 battlesuits. Ive been looking through the codex trying to develop effective strategies for this force in a 500 point game. Its actually really fun once you get down to the brass tax of it.

As Noc said, he said IN batlleforce and there isnt a hammerhead in ours. I personally would say run 2 six man firewarriors squad. stealh team and then whatever they recommend for the commander. maybe add kroot or put a 6 man squad in a smartfish?
