Welcome to Librarium Online!
My 2 brothers recently got the warhammer boxed set, and it looked really cool. I looked on the internet at the different armies and decided that I wanted to have a tau army. I bought the codex, and am looking for some advice on how to start buying models. I don't have a ton of money, so should I just buy one of the battlesuit commanders and some fire warriors and add on later or what. Thanks a lot
If you can afford it, the batleSet Box is the best deal to start with.
IT is $90 though, so it can be alot to spend at once.
12 fire warriors
some jungle trees
if you add up the retail prices:
tyou end up paying something like $5 for the kroot and the trees, wehn you buy the BattleForce.

Yes, that's the first thing I got. But as it was my B-day i quickly expanded into heavy support (with a Hammerhead and Broadside). Also i got an extra set of fire warriors and kroot. Once you have a good infastructure it's not hard to expand.
I played magic and I play now Warhammer 40k
for some reason most of my opponents are scared of me, but I not an excelent player.
I am kind of a bluffer, it works
and take a couple of stealth suits too (5)
I kicked the hell of a couple of terminators ( killed 3 in one shot, lucky ***** rolled 3 1's )
First off, welome to LO .
I agree with the others. The Tau box set is great as it is the only one (maybe except the new guard ones) that includes a HQ as you can use the crisis suits in there as one. Next I would get some more fire warriors, at least 1 more pack of them. Then, It's up to your preferences. One thing though, get the codex first and plan your army. This way, you will know how effective everything is and you will know which direction you want to take with it.
Oh sorry, didn't read your post well enough about not having a ton of money. If you are looking for the minimum to play, that is the codex, 2 firewarrior packs, and a crisis suit (will count as a commander). You will also need the rulebook if you don't already know how to play.
Thanks for the advice. I went out and bought the codex, and I think that I'm going to buy my force bit by bit, spending the time in between to do a really good painting job on all the models until I have an actual army.
ya know, ya only really need one box set..... 2 squads of six, and then some xv8.... cheapest tau army pretty much......crap though...
i would add in the battlesuit commander (shas'vre?) along with a battle force for a good start then get a hammerhead

dont waste points on getting a shas'vre if u want to lose some points lose them somewhere else
