Default Assistance needed.

Would a guardian defender squad,
a Guardian Storm squad and
an Rangers squad be good for beginners?

I collect Tau currently.

Thanks,
Aaron

Also why do i have two stars under my name?

Thanks,

and....If anyone has stupid beginner questions to ask i will because i don't mind being emberessed. (you don't have a codex either?)

Well the stars might be how close you are to forum rank increase. *shrugs*

Now considering your force. The guardians are good. Ya have resiliant shooters and melea. But the rangers... the rangers. They take up an elite spot right? Well nevertheless you need an HQ. You might get away with a Wraithlord but I would suggest a Farseer or an Avatar. I take Baharoth but that is because I use swooping hawks and he mondo powers them. I would also suggest either a support platform, a falcon, or some Dark Reapers or Wraithguard. I would personally suggest the falcon to transport your storm squad to the enemy and reduce their casualties when closeing the distance so to speak.

Hope that helps some.

Money is a factor...

Rangers are troops I think..

Then get two boxes of Dark reapers and a Farseer. 30 bucks in total and gives ya a nice heavy support unit and an HQ. For the same 20 bucks ya could opt for a support platform instead and the Farseer again 30 total.

Personally I pick a genrerak army tactic and go for it, so I wouldn't suggest a storm squad and a defender squad. Decide whether you would rather be shooting or close combat based and run with it.

But if you don't even have the codex you should get that first.

I'm kinda running off the let's say basis.

I need two troops so:

Guardians (all around,ok in h2h, ok in shooting)

and what?

I'd recommend as well as the guardians:

A Farseer -good solid HQ unit
A Falcon - Heavy Support with great weapons and the ability to transport units
Wraithguard - they have awesome weapons and can stand up for themselves in cc
Vyper jetbikes - Can have the legendary starcannon - good at shooting and good at harassing the enemy

I'd say rangers are a good idea. They can infiltrate into cover, have good range, hit on 2's, wound anything on a 4+ and have AP1 on a 6. They're a pretty sweet troops choice, even at 19 points/model. The only thing they really lack that Guardians have is the ability to take a heavy weapon.

i'd take rangers esspcially if i just came from tau, but perhaps you might want to make and alaitoc army in whcih you can get even better ones called pathfinders(they came out before the tau ones) they are better than the normal rangers. you can find them in codex:craftworld eldar.
