What, like you have?? ;)

Anyway, my very quick piece of advice would be to advise any new Tau player not to start with Crisis suit heavy lists, and certainly not to even contemplate trying a Farsight list. Instead I would sggest trying the various different squad types in a balanced manner until comfortable with them and only then branching out along whichever path seems most attractive. I cannot imagine that starting with a suit-heavy Army is in any way the best way of finding out the strengths, weaknesses and need for balance that makes the Tau Army as fun to play - and effective - as it can be. Instead it would most likely be a quick - and bitter - journey to disillusionament.

I'm sorry if this doesn't appear overly helpful but it is certainly intended as good advice.

I can't help him. I don't run Tau, His goal is mechanized Tau. What would be the best stuff for him?

Hey there, I was just teasing! My advice would be for him to read the FAQs first - there's even a very good one about mech Tau by Lost Nemesis (and others?). In any event, a suit-heavy Army isn't really mech Tau, for that you need the mobility and protection of the Devilfishes/Warfishes, arguably - with good reason - probably the best troop transport in the game. The FAQ articles might answer many of the questions and will, in all likelihood, give a better pointer as to what he's after. From the way you're posting, I'm assuming he's a chum of yours?

Ahh, OK, that figures. Actually, when I said FAQ I meant the Articles and Tacticas Section. Try:

http://www.librarium-online.com/forums/tau/80672-index-tau-articles-tactica.html

In any event, if my technical skills have failed me it's the last entry in the first section of the Tau Forum and there's a good index in there of all the articles, all of which are well worth a careful read - there's a HUGE amount of knowledge and experience encapsulated in them.
