Welcome to Librarium Online!
as soon as i can get a job(and some cash) im really thinking of joining the ranks of the tau-i have built Ultramarines and Daemonhunters armies but the tau's gear just seem to interest me more. im planning on getting the battle box when i have the cash(as its the best value for its points vs money). what else should i get as i continue to be able to afford it?
Well you should get the codex and after that another 1or2 boxes of firewarriors followed by a hammerhead/broadsides. Its personal preference but I currently like stealth suits

i would experiment with a squad of kroot warriors and see if they are effective meatshields or whatever you want to use them for

in my opinion, the tau army isnt dependent on a specific model... More like an excellent meal, all the seperate parts come together to form an exquisite experience. In this case, however, the experience would be ass-kicking.
but as a more direct answer to your question, I really love pathfinders. particularly in conjunction with heavy support choices, like broadsides, crisis or hammerheads. and rail rifles are LOADS of fun. with thier above average strength and ap3, you will cause pinning tests pretty reliably.
if you dont have those heavy support choices, you can just set up the pathfinders behind a row of FW's and use thier nice railrifles with impunity.
