Have anyone ever tried to field 3 CTC´s at the same time?

No, but thinking that if the list is as evil as i think it might be... it would be worth the investment.

I've run two. But three is just too much.

I've got 6x Talos and 1x Chronos and am running the Dark Artisan along with the Corpsethief Claw. It is ridiculously resilient and lots of fun because of the helpful special rules but naturally it is all very dependent on the results of non-fleet assault throws.
Last week, the CTC failed all assault moves from Turn 2-4 against an Ork army. The turn 2 charge was biggish at 7", but the 4" fail and the 3" fail that followed on subsequent turns were just hilarious. If this chunk of 1,000 points can't get stuck in, it earns me nothing. The Ork trukks and outflanking buggies meanwhile ran rampant aroud me with Maelstrom objective points and I got, basically, out Dark Eldar-ed.
TLDR? Can't recommend 3, mate.

Okay.  My opponent didn't know how to deal, and I won.

Close to 1500 points with only two units is a grim prospect.  A Purge the Alien mission would definitely favor the CTC list, but virtually every other mission is going to put you at a disadvantage.  There's just way too much to go wrong.

If you've got that many DE engines, I think you'd be better served with 5-7 Dark Artisan formations instead of 2-3 CTCs.

Even though I explain the rules and warn my opponents from letting the CTC get close, 3/4 of them still feed me stuff in hand to hand to nom nom nom on.

Pride bro. Even in little plastic soldiers, guys don't want to look like cowards. Wink

I suffer no such impairment. I don't care if someone pokes fun at me for running away. I'd imagine any decent Tau player would also avoid feeding you. But that's just a guess based on my own personal experiences.

I've fielded 2 CTC and a Dark Artisan at 1650p (IIRC) It's SUPER fun, but I wouldnt try it in competitive.
