    Ok i need some advice i am stuck between these armies and can't decide i am leaning towards the Tau and Kroot side of things but are kroot any good at CC i like the models and having such good shooting but if kroot are bad at cc then i will get Eldar which would you say is the easiest to paint that looks good without having to be 'Eavy Metal standard because i am a bad painter

    thanks alot.

    Well Kroot are better than Tau in CC but i'm not so sure how they would far against eldar but Kroot are cheap dont forget that 7 or 8 pts each. They are there to stop Tau being blown up but they too have some decent weaponry. I think maybe Eldar are easier to play with because they are an established army whereas Tau are quite new but...there are new models for Tau being released. On the painting side you dont need to be a Eavy Metal painter to get a decent looking army of either Tau or Eldar but what I've found is if you paint Tau like they are on the Box and the same with Eldar they took take a while since they both have fiddly little areas. I do think Tau models look better than Eldar though. Also Tau are just shooting dont forget whereas Eldar are both but then thats what you got Kroot for right . Hope this helps

    In my opinion eldar minis look better then the Tau and also have several varient army list so you can cater it to your style of play, the closest the Tau come to this is if you take O'shova ( that's his name isn't it ) which you need your opponents permission for anyway and you get two squads that are better at HTH.
    Eldar on the other hand have about 8 varient lists including 'nilla. plus a much bigger miniature range,
    For me personaly Eldar has it over the Tau.

    If I had to choose I'd go for Tau, simply cause I like the look of Tau better than Eldar.
    The Eldar have a more detailed fluff, but the tau are a younger race that has som kick ass weapons that even look cool.
    But down to earth I would choose Tau simply for the Kroot... those wonderful kroot, I simply love those minis...
