Hi all, im shaso 13. I live in ortheast US, and have only been gaming for pretty much this summer.
about 6 years back, i got into fantasy with brettonians, but i didnt quite stick with it, and my knights and peasants were stored away for a while.
Fast forward about 3 or 4 years, I im interested in starting back up. The store that i go to doesn't have the greatest selection of fantasy, so the guy who worked there suggested i try 40k. I start of with the Battle for Macragge box, and then buy a Tau army box and codex. I was drawn to tau by the battle suits and some of the fluff I read about them. After painting the macragge set (poorly ), I move on to the tau box, when I sudenly become busy with school and lose interest once again.
Fast forward to this spring. Im bored and am looking through my old stuff, when I stummble upon my old tau stuff. I paint almost the whole box set in about a week, and decide to visit the same LGS that i went to before. I get my self an extra suit and a commander and the rest is histoy.
Right now I have about 1500 pts of Tau, have played about 8-10 games, and have discovered how poor tau are in 5th edition Recently i decided to strip down my old marines from the macragge set, and throw together a small black templar army. I have yet expand them yet, but as soon as I get a chance ill be buying a SM battalion box and the BT bits pack.
I have an acount on second sphere under the same name, and have been posting there for about 2 months or so. I hope I learn as much here as I did there! Thanks all, and I look forward to getting into heated debates about things that dont matter that much!
Hey there Shaso 13, so you Bretonnians for Fantasy do you still have them? & yes the Tau do struggle a bit now in 5th Ed but they can still do a lot of damage though. I see that you have turned your Battle Of Macragge set into Black Templars that's good i have them as well, so have you used them yet?
Well anyways you will get a lot of helpful advice here so enjoy your stay & welcome to LO.
My brets, currently i have 6 knights of the realm, 10 or so peasants, a paladin with spear, paladin with BSB, and the army book.
So far in my games with tau im 1-5-1, but my last 2 losses have been very close, one against nids where i wouldve tied had the game ended turn 5, and one against wolves where i lost by 1 kp that if in hindsight i shouldve tied as well. But i enjoy them, and my army continues to grow.
My black reach marines were decently converted, I had to strip them down and they got a little warped in the process, but most of them are ok. I havent played with them yet as all you get with the macragge set is a single tactical squad, but once I purchase the battalion box ill have a solid 750 force. Nice to meet you, and hope to here from you soon!
