    start with the tau army box set. enough there for a reasonable 500 points game, for a price that won't break your wallet as much as buying separate.

    Yeah, this is excellent! TY Angel of Rust!

    Graktoof the vile, victor of 1000 battles, partial credit to 1000 more, and sore loser about the other 8000...

    All depends on your playing style. First, I recommend checking the pinned threads at the top of this forum - especially the Intro to Mechanised Tau. To give a bit of an introduction:

    There are two generic types of Tau:
    1) Static Tau - What people thought of when they first saw Tau. The stand-and-shoot force.

    2) Mechanised Tau - Mobile Tau, everyone is either a battle suit, a tank, or mounted in a Transport.

    It really does depend on how you like to play. I'd recommend starting off buying a Crisis Battlesuit or an Ethereal for your HQ slot and getting two boxes of Fire Warriors - those are the basics of any Tau army, static or mech.

    Your core tau force is 24 Fw and a crisis suit. After that you have to options:
    Stand and Shoot:Get a few broad sides and more fire warriors to create a fire base
    Mech:Get a hammerhead and some devilfish.
    In either case you need to geet yourself some stealth suits and /or some crisis suits
    Oh yeah, dont froget a codex
    Tau'n Expeditionary force:
    W/L/T
    Marines:4/1/1
    IG:2/0/0
    Chaos:1/1/0

    Iron Warriors:
    W/L/T
    Marines:3/0/1
    IG:0/0/1
    Tau:0/1/0
