Hey, everyone! I've been wanting to get into WH40k since I was a kid, but never had the time or money for it. Now that I'm in college and have a job, I find myself with just enough money to invest in an army.
Choosing an army was a soul-wrenching experience. I wanted to do Orks, but was daunted by their low win-rating (maybe I'll revisit greenskins when I'm a better player). I considered the Tyranids, since they are also a mob-army. But that's not what I like! I like military uniformity and shooting things. I thought about the IG, but why not invest in something more alien, given the scifi nature of the game?
I chose the Tau, to fight for the greater good. The Tau have the military-ness I wanted and really great fluff (enough socialism to make me want to paint my army red and yellow, heh).
I also play the Dawn of War game, which is great fun. I read a lot, especially scifi and science non-fiction, though I'm not adversed to other genres. I'm majoring in anthropology with a minor in renewable resources and maybe a second minor in linguistics, depending on my future course loads. I speak a little bit of French and Esperanto.
I live in America (southeast Louisiana, the heart of Cajun culture).
Grim Reaper: Shut up, you American. You Americans, all you do is talk, and talk, and say "let me tell you something" and "I just wanna say." Well, you're dead now, so shut up.

Hey mate, glad to have another Shas'O on the site. I'm also a Tau player, so I should see you over on the Tau army forum. There you will find seasoned veterans (and eager novices - like me) who are more than willing to discuss the ins and outs of the Tau army with you. Head over there for a good chat! Be sure to check out the rest of the site as well; there are numerous other forums relating to numerous parts of the hobby, so you're bound to find something to interest you.
Have a read through the forum rules (found here) so that you make the moderators' lives a littel easier - they are a good bunch so as long as you follow the rules you should get along with them great. I hope you enjoy the site mate, its a great place as I'm sure you'll find out. If you have any questions or concerns then feel free to send me a PM and I'll try to help you.
Have fun mate, see you on the forums.
