    Hey good idea coming here to ask what to buy. Here's what I think you should buy.

    1. The codex.
    -once you have bought it you can read it a bit to make sure you're not rushing into tau. You may not like them.
    2. The battleforce.
    -this has everything you need for small fights. If you can't get one then get a box of fire warriors and 2 crisis suits.
    3. A box of fire warriors and 6 stealths.
    -you now have enough models to start playing 750p and a little variety with any 500p battles and combat patrols.

    You should play a fair few games before buying anything else. Before you buy more you should decide which direction you want to head. You will want to buy a hammerhead next, but after that I can't tell you what you'll like. You might want an ethereal, 6 more stealths, more crisis, more firewarriors, pathfinders, devilfish, more kroot, broadsides, or more hammerheads.

    And that's just with the Kroot.

    Here's a beginners 1000p list for you.

    Commander Shas'O (same model as the elite crisis suits) 133
    -plasma rifle, fusion blaster, shield generator, hardwired multitracker
    XV8 'Crisis' Battlesuit 83
    -team leader, twinlinked plasma rifle, missile pod, hardwired multitracker
    XV8 'Crisis' Battlesuit 57
    -twinlinked missile pod, flamer (you must use all hard points. you might as well buy a flamer over something that costs less but does nothing, because you have points to spare)
    6 XV15 'Stealth' Battlesuits 190
    -bonded by the ta'lissera
    12 Fire Warriors 130
    -shas'ui included
    12 Fire Warriors 130
    -shas'ui included
    8 Gun Drones 96
    1 Hammerhead 180
    -railgun, smart missiles, decoy launchers, multitracker, target lock
    999p

    This list has 3 Crisis Suits, 2 boxes of fire warriors, 6 stealths, and a hammerhead.
    All the best Tau units imo.

    Wait when you say Pathfinders with railrifles I hope you dont mean all your PF's. Your list looks cool but you might want to add a Devilfish or some more Crisis'.

    wait a minute... you are a tau begginer, and already you know you hate mech tau and kroot...

    err i can only suggest you try differnet tactics and stuff, and dont put stuff down before you even tried it.

    It may help if you tell who you are playing against...
    The avatar is the emperor as a pimp. Well, i like it.

    DARKNESS, your might have to learn to be flexible, as the Tau aren't.

    And how can hate something you've never used? You don't even have the codex!?!

    But in the end it is up to you, were just make sure you can have fun all the time.

    Mike
