i have just bought a commander and stealth suits, but i dont what to buy next that would suit my army? i've got kroot, fire warriors, stealth team and commander.
A couple of Crisis suits should fit in nicely, since they're pretty much mandatory in a Tau army. 2 units of 2 suits should be enough.
"Luck often enough, will save a man, if his courage hold".
Well, you have covered the compulsory units with your Commander and Troops choices there, so basically it would help to have some more Fire Warriors. Kroot are great but also rather fragile, whereas the Fire Warriors have decent weapons and an Armour Save!
Don't go mad buying things though just yet. Have a really good look through your codex - in fact, do this at least twice or three times because you will miss little details on your first couple of times through - and then decide on what style of play you plan to use. There are several choices out there:
1. Mechanised Tau where you have lots of vehicles for your troops, Hammerheads and XV8 Crisis suits.
2. Static Tau: few if any transports, but loads of Fire Warriors, Broadsides and a few Crisis suits.
3. Hybrid Tau: more transports but still using the "gunline" style, with Kroot thrown in as well.
4. Mobile Infantry: No vehicles, but small squads of Fire Warriors, loads of Crisis, Stealths and Broadsides. Commander Shadowsun works well in this one.
5. Aggressive Tau: This is really reserved more for the Farsight Enclave armies, but the general advice to new Tau players is to leave Farsight alone until you have a little more experience with playing Tau. The restrictions on a Farsight army are not easy to overcome if you're not used to Tau.
There are other less common variants, but these are the usual selection.
Once you decide which style of play suits you best, then you can start to make your choices as to what purchases would suit your decision best. Doing things this way will guarantee to save you quite a lot of money, as you will only be buying the models you *really* need.
I know this reply hasn't told you what to buy - that's deliberate, even though you may find it a little annoying. Others though will confirm that checking out playstyle before purchasing anything is definitely a good plan.
Hope this was helpful to you.

thanks for the information, i will probably use a mobile infantry, and get a couple of crisis battlesuits and maybe another squad of fire warriors. though i might get a broadside.
