Yes it is, very much so. I am happy I got my battle force and nothing was broken, missing, or worped. So over all they do a good job. (Well from what I have boughten.)Originally posted by philipmatlary@Apr 24 2003, 02:16
is the quality the same???
Yeah thats always a problem, I have a friend that is 12 (well my friends brother) is 12 and he is jumping all over the place with armies and not really playing his main one (Dark Angles). So if you do start investing i suggest you get your moneys worth out of your models and stick with your Tau army until you get a job then go on if you want. A good rule of thumb is don't buy more models if the ones you have are not painted. If you some how fall out of the game you will not regret (as much) buying your army.Originally posted by hotsause@Apr 24 2003, 11:12
ya im kind short on cash cause im only 12 so i cant spend too much
If you buy the Codex and make the army on paper before you go and start buying your stuff you will save alot of money. I have about 2500+ in my Tau and its only been about 300 bucks. I knew what I wanted then I bought it.Originally posted by ShaselMudd@Apr 30 2003, 20:11
Yes my way is expensive. ALl these armies are. I speak about 2000pt armies and I am sorry if gave you too much information. I didnt take into consideration your money limitations. What the other folks said before is good, second hand stuff is good. Especially for Tau where people have played them and found they didnt like them. My games store has auctions often where we can buy other folks stuff who dont want it anymore. Also get the book, figure out what you like best and buy one. Whether a fire warrior squad or a crisis suit then put it together and paint it. Then buy your next one. I suggest starting out with one suit $20 and a firewarrior squad $30. The crisis will be your HQ and the firewarrior squad your troops. The next thing you buy should be another firewarrior squad. Just like its seen in the codex. Thats a total of $80 or cheaper if you can get it second hand. But thats what you need to start playing. That gives in you points about 500 pts if you give them everything you can. Try it out against a couple of people and when you get more money buy more items for your army.
I hope it goes well for you, in comparison I have spent so far on this army about $600. A usual 2000 pt army will be about $300-400 unless you get it second hand. I usually buy from my game store though to support them since they let me use their space to game.
