400 points Tau vs Tau

This campaign uses the jungle fight rules found here:

In short the amount of terrain is greatly increased from the norm of 25-50% that I usually see to easily 70-90%. This map included a single clearing with some ruined walls and a long trail with a clear hill and an area of dangerous terrain. Thats it, all the rest was jungle.
My Tau, the Or'es Shi cadre:
Irregulars 8 Firewarriors, bonded, shas'ui
-Devilfish APC, multi tracker, targeting array, decoy launchers
Team Alpha 8 Firewarriors, bonded, shas'ui
-Devilfish APC, multi tracker, targeting array, decoy launchers

Believe it or not I can actually fit 2 skimmers in a 400 point game. Both FW squads came in at exactly 100 ponts, both skimmers were also exactly 100. 400 on the nose. The  Devilfish just squeezes into the armor requirements for combat patrol.

Second Tau
10 Firewarriors, shas'ui, bonded
