Default Re: Recomendation

Welcome to TO! Have you read the content on the main web-site about starting a tau army? Here is a link to the page with the relevant articles:

http://www.tauonline.org/starting.php

I would recommend just finishing the models that you already have before getting any more. Also, don't buy a codex until the new one comes out (sometime in early 2006, check out the rumors board).

At the moment, the best thing we have for taking out marines would probably be a helios suit (plasma, fusion, multi). From the looks of things though, we are getting some very powerful new units that will be extremely useful to this end (vespids and sniper drones look like the best).

As for the pointy heads, I would recommend plenty of pulse fire and some hammerheads armed with rail guns. Tau VS eldar always makes for an interesting match, as the two armies are both typically fast and shooty (although eldar can be made to be more assault oriented). Watch out for dark reapers, which will eat through most of your units at a freighting rate. Be sure to bring some kroot, as they are often very effective against some of the aspect warriors (the shooty ones at least).

Remember that tau are not a very straight forward army; it will take a few games to get the hang of it. Just stick with and be sure to of your research first. A good place to start that would be the tau important topics, which can be found on the main tau board (just click the back button).
