Welcome to Librarium Online!
well, like topic says, i have played space marines for the past 3 years. and while service to the emporer was nice, it got old, real old. im a veteran DA ravenwing player, and well, it got boring.
my uncle has played tau since the day the came out. he his a fanatic. well, while visiting this summer, we went to his local GW, and thats when i realized i wanted to change over. so i bought the codex, and of course, maybe the baddest looking battle suit i've ever seen, OSHAVA. plus to boot, i love the fluff. and from what i hear, there is a campaign coming up focused on the damocles enclave.
anyway, back to topic. i want to start a 1000 point army. but i have no clue where to start. except from experience, i know that fw with an etheral and pulse carbines will make any opponent re-think strategy. but from there, battlesuit config. is a puzzle, and broadside, or hammerhead, or both. all i know is i need help with a 1000 point army. any suggs.
Well, if your strictly going to play the Farsight Enclave - I guess the battleforce box set would be a no go? As you wouldnt be able to use the kroot or drone squadrans.
I'd probably start off with O'Shavah, a box of Crisis Suits, 2 boxes of firewarriors, some broadsides (hehe) and a hammerhead tank if you could squeeze it all in, shouldn't be too hard.
Best of luck. :huh:
well looking in the armylist would help because you could see what alot of people use
but for crisis combo alot of people use the fireknife(plasma, missile, multi tracker) i use it all the time
and if you wanted to to O'Shovah you know you cant use an ethereal, kroot, or drones so if you dont like them go for him but i like to stick witht the ethereal and drones, i dont use the kroot that often but they can really come in handy in forests because of thei ability so you can shoot people but they cant shoot you back
in a 1000pts army i would maybe go a commander and then like 3 crisis. then like 24 fire warriors and then for fast attack if your not using farsight then go some drones and put your commander in a squad of 8 drones(which means they have to go thru 8 wounds with a not bad save to actually get to the commander). and then to finish it off go with a hammerhead with a railgun which is awesome at kill tanks and infanty with its submunition blast :ph34r:

thanks you guys for all the help. today i went out and bought my first crisis team. i figure that no matter what i play i will need at least three. i painted them in a nice scheme that matches oshava's. so far i haven't mounted any permanent weapons, and im using tiny bits of green stuff to hold on temp. armaments. i painted one of them to act as a commander. i figure that im going to build an army that has a base of oshava army, but use some drones, and maybe a few kroot. but when i am able, i'll be able to switch them out pretty harmlesssly.
i also bought my first boxes of fire warriors. for now i split them into two 12 man teams, that way i can play a very very basic game. they are painted in a maroon armor, black undercloth to match the crisis suits. i think that later, i may switch the scheme for my pathfinders, black armor and maroon undercloth, who knows. but thanks for all the help. i plan on playing a couple cheap cheap matches tomorrow, maybe like 750 or what-not, but since i have no life, im going to spend the rest of the night painting. so far, ive gotten enough points to play a 500pt skirmish, but not too much else. thanks for all the help.
