Welcome to Librarium Online!
i want to start a tau army but dont know where to start...i have had these armies in the past :Black templars, Imperial Guard , Necrons and blood angels. now its time for tau..
i have always been fasinated with tau and i like there guns.
so can people show me where to start with models...i now with the codex and stuff.
P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe
If U got the money I'd say a battleforce box plus a hammerhead tank should make a nice starting army
24 fire warriors
3 battle suits
6 stealth suits
this should make a flexable and powerful 750 arm
to get this up to a thousand you can add some develfish, a hammerhead or a gun drone unit.
by then you should know enouph about tau to make your own desision.
try posting your army list on the forum to see what people think of it before you buy it.
life is an icecream and you just have to lick it
First, before you buy anything, look at Tonka Truck Drivers intro to mech tau it's pinned up top. For a short overview mech tau is an army composed of nothing but battlesuits, FWs in devilfishs, Pathfinders in devilfishes, gun drones and hammerheads. Also you can use kroot as pre positiond gound assets (Infiltrate). BAsicly if it can't move more than 12" thani its a speed bump on the while your forces run like little girls to geta away form the enemy. AS for what to buy for a small army you can buy
1 crisis (shas'o)
That would cost aroun $180 but tou should buy it in steps, one section at a time starting with the core force. And before you build anything see tonya tau's magnetic mounting and conversion forum.
