Default Re: Wanting to start Tau: What should I know beforehand?

1. yeah pretty much, we have kroot that can survive, but they're no space marine. The beauty is that we don't NEED close combat.

2. Not too sure on this one. Though it could be argued for almost any army.

3. a bit, but nothing like trying to learn quantum mechanics.

4. each individual unit is generally more shooty, our tanks are cheap points wise and are to me the best in the game. The base cost is low then you add either the ion cannon, or railgun, neither put the tank above the cost of a land raider, which we can pop like balloons, while still skirting around them. add to the fact that our tanks can move 12" and still shoot thier main gun, AND get a 4+ cover save most of the time... yeah we're a heavily mounted force.


as for what ashtoruin said, yeah. We suck at all comers... but then again, in specific battles.... we can tear someone apart if we have a little intel before hand. That's why i like the tau... everyone at my shop plays marines.
