after finishing my chaos army,i decided to be tau.can any one give me some tips?
Wjat kind of Tau army are you lokking for? I suggest you search the army list Forum and look at some other lits to see if you find a style your looking for, and buy the codex before you start asking for what units aare good at what, and read it and try and make a few list, play a few small proxie games to see if you can find a style that fits.
Yeah here's some tips.
1. Buy the codex. (I'm not being mean, seriously, that's a good tip yeah )
2. Buy the battleforce. Play a game or two.
3. Buy 12 fire warriors and 6 stealth suits.
4. Play lots of games and try lots of things and hang around here to see which direction you want to head.
Next I would usually buy a hammerhead, but some people like broadsides etc. Some people like ethereals, some like 12 stealths. As a chaos player I think you'll like the 3+ saves we have. The thing about tau is it's mobility and S5 basic weapon and S10 gun. Some go completely towards the mobility side and go mech tau. Others love the 30" range of our basic trooper and go static tau (with lots of broadsides too). Most go in between.
i have no money...
Well, my first tip would be to try to construct some worthwhile posts and answer the questions of the indivduals who are trying to help you.
Second, listen to psteve. Read the codex front to back, including the fluff. Then read it again. Then once more for good measure.
Thirdly, get a job. If you can't do that, proxy some Tau from your Chaos forces and green army men.
Record as of 26 December for my Static Tau Cadre.
10 wins, 0 losses, and 1 draw.
Last game: Victory over Necron in a 600 point "kill em all" that lasted til turn 10 ending with a phase out.
Buy a codex and the battleforce for a good starter army.
It has 3 crisis battle suits that are pretty powerful if you make 1 commander and have the rest as normal battle suits.
You also get 12 fire warriors that you will need more of.
Plus 12 kroot for close combat and 10 gun drones good for attacking troops.
After that work on other units.

now sacea's idea is pretty good ill go buy a battleforce and codex and decide whatever else i want.thanks for the ideas!
Awwww, poor Psteve
Just to enforce what everyone else has said, if your on a limited budget then the single most important thing to get is the codex. Read itover and over, get to know your units like the back of your hand... then you can think about what units will fit your style of play and what units you should be buying
