    Railgun.

    Cheap troops with badass weapons.
    Stealthsuits w/ markerlights
    Smart missles
    Battlesuits

    edit: Tau are also the universe's solution to the imperial guard.

    If you want a shooty army thats why for one reason at least. I personally chose them because I liked their look and their units. Their firepower is awesome though.

    My last army was tyranids. I play chaos in WFB.

    I wanted a shooting phase, so who has shooting? Imp guard or Tau.

    TBH i can't stand the imperium, so tau it was. Also, the futuristic techy feal appealed to me.

    And the railguns and awesome looking battlesuits.

    My last army was Dark Eldar. Hitting the upper limit of things I wanted to have in it (as well as what I feel is about as big an army can get before it becomes too unwieldy), I looked around at the other prospective choices.

    Loved the look of Tau, loved the fluff of Tau... and, since I play against Space Marines with depressing frequency, *loved* the look of bouncing Jump Packs and Rail Guns.

    Why I chose Tau

    It&#39;s simple they have a wonderfully fluff and great locking minis
    and great potential to whoop some ass

    Tau was my first ever army -- why did I choose them? It was the first army in 40k I heard of. Imperial Guard and Nids were the last two armies I heard of so I decided to collect them as well.
    I collected Tau cos their battlesuits looked cool . Simply just that. If you see my army, I&#39;v gone for battlesuits galore, choosing to only have 12 fire warriors in my 1500pt army, 3 tanks, pathfinder team, 6 crisis suits, 3 broadsides and 8 seekers to unload on marine squads. So there you &#39;ave it. my reasons to collect tau.
