At school my 40,000 recreation is making me seem a fool, we do 500 point battles everyone else plays is space marines or chaos, im stuck as tau with this current list
2 X 12 fire warriors 240 points
1X 10 fire warrior squad
1X hammer head w/ rail gun and smart missile 160 point
i lose 80% of the time and for a veteran player thats not so good, tau dont like 3+ saves... suites have tempted me but failed in battle
Well if you cant beat them, join them.....
i used to collect blood angels.... -goes in the attick- new list time....
Blood angel chaplain- 180
10 man tactical squad with bolt pistols + chain saws = 150 points
10 man tactical squad with bolt guns = 150
total- 480 points
note: the bolt pistol / chainsword combo is legal isn't it...?
note: still 20 points spare
well I just thought i'd mention this, but if you put this in the space marine army list section, more people would probally respond. Also don't give up! Don't join the space marines :wacko: There's already to many of them!!!! If you really want to try a new army then go for something else. If you want something with good saves and hard to kill besides space marines (and chaos cuz i guess thats what ppl play with you according to your post) try necrons or daemonhunters. Anyway do what you want. Go ahead and start space marines if you really want to. Anyway Good luck!!! :yes:
dont go for space marines, i know its tempting but don't do it. You should try feilding a MEQ tau army, those tend to do much better against +3 saves. WHen they get within 18 inches run away. Also the assault squad members could be pesky. Try taking stealth suits and pathfinders, those will help
“Krump first, assk qweztions neva'!"- 3000 Orks
Dark Eldar- 1500 1/0/0
"the very gods for vengeance cry”- 3000 Dwarves
Tau don't really get going until 1000+ points and are probably most fun at 1500-2000. You're just handicapped by the low point games. Guard Armies at 500 points suck too but are very satisfying at 2000+. By all means if you have the resources field multiple armies for multiple point spreads.
Iron Halo for your HQ = 20 pts (I think)
You need at least 1 anti armor weapon, maybe a Multi Melta since you are assaulty. (I'm sure someone fields a speeder/Razorback/Predator, maybe even a Dread).
