OK, i have been eyeing 40k for a while now and have finally decided i wanna play some. I was looking and saw the tau. Big suits, Big guns, long range, hail of ummmm.... pulses?, and was attracted to them. I just wanted to know some thoughts on them. I know cc sucks, the kroot are there but not very good, etc. I wanna play an army that has more shooting than cc, but are the tau what i want?
Well my little bro plays Tau and if you want shooty the Tau are for you. However I cannot stress enough how HORRIBLE they are at CC. Tau can be a very fun army, I personally like Mech Tau (mobile force) but many play Trench Tau (static force).
Just because the majority of Tau have a WS 2 doesn't mean they suck at CC. Many times my 12 Fire Warriors will charge a squad of 10 Eldar Jetbikes and succesfully win combat. However, I believe this is more a luck of the dice roll.
Begone! This is not for your brains.
When Lost Nemisis says something, it pays to listen...
And to think, if it weren't for me, he may not even be playing Tau.

Welcome to the Greater Good! Well, first off, if you know how to use kroot, they can be quite lethal. There are a few different ways of playing Tau:
Here are some links:Our Mechanised Forces, Guide to Mech Tau, Trench Tau, Mech Tau Tactica, Tau Crisis Suit Help (made by me)

Tau is the best!
If you want a shooty army Tau is the army for you!
Welcome, Indeed Tau is a great army.
Try to load up on Firewarriors so you can always fill out your points with them, and not only Battlesuits.Yeah, but tau arn't suppose to be in close combat anyway.. :rolleyes:Originally posted by CaptainClegg@Feb 11 2005, 21:42
