    hey if i were you i would go for the tau battle force. They look totally cool and have great ranged attack. the battle force is around 550-600 points. yeah the tau suck in close combat

    Do bear in mind that the kroot aren't exactly the pinnacle of close combat either...

    But anyway, I would say Tau are the best choice. In my oppinion they have far more superior firepower than the eldar.
    A trait which easily can win a battle by itself...

    Also bear in mind that if they dont have a shaper the kroot dont have an armour save. However this is somewhat negated by the armour save they DO get of 6+.

    Go for Eldar, and more specifically Ulthwe. That way you'll be on a par with space marines BS, and you dish out 20 shots from a full squad of defender guardians guaranteed. (3+ to hit, 40 shots from 20 guardians with assault 2 weapons, str 4, ap5. Rather spangly. )

    Go with the Eldar. I started with Tau and believe me I regret it now. In my opiion it was a waist of money. I mean after like 2 weeks of collecting thme I alreayd had everything there was to get, and it sucked cuase therewas nothing else to do. I had a huge Tau battle force, but they don't really have anything good. Everyone I talk to that plays agrees Tau suck. Also, people say there so good at long range. Well they're not.lol, I battled with them once, I unloaded with like 30 fire warriors, some Pathfinders, a Devilfish and some Broadside cannons. I killed like 2 guys. 2 guys, you know how horrible that is.lol, luckily thew battle was jsut for fun, so I had like a partner basically, who was plaing Space Marines, and he did all of the work. I mean it's your choice, but everyone I know who has done tau, collected their army for about 3 weeks tops, and then they were begging people to buy it. My army had probably about 200$ worth of stuff(which is a lot to me), I was so sick of Tau I sold it for like 40$.

    The only armies Tau are good against are the Tyranids, Orks and probably Dark ELdar. My mistake, go with the eldar dammit!!!!
