Default Tyranids or necrons.

I collect tau now, but when I'm done I wanna collect necrons and tyranids.... but what first?!

I tried flipping a coin...11 times...and every time it landed in the gap between my fingers, I'M SERIOUS!

I was best at painting my kroot but the tyranids are a lot different, so I thought necrons cause they're paint scheme would be easier...

on that note how is tyranids pronounced

I say -tir-a-nids- but my friend says -tie-ran-ids-


take away one vote from the greater good cause I need to see results X_X

I can't really help you with what to pick. :/

But you pronounce them, Tear-a-nids.

well regardless of the pronounciation...I think you should either expend your Tau or go all out and do Necron....but keeping the tau (or going Kroot) would be my best advice.

well, I'm definatly gonna have armies of all, and was intending doing 1500pts at a time...

I'm almost at the 1500 mark for the tau, and I'm not sellin em or anything. If I make the trade with SD and get shadowsun then I'll have a fair army:

shadowsun,
1 commander,
6 suits
3 stealth
24 FW
12 Kroot
7 PF
Devilfish
Hammerhead
broadside
ethereal (just for the greater good)

Tyranid players seem to be very popular. I'd say go with Necrons. They have a cool feel and some very brooding models. Plus the Monolith is among the coolest tanks in the game.

Do you mean tear as in teardrop, or tear as in rip? Because I've never heard the latter...

I always find myself saying it "tie-ran-ids", because of how you pronounce the word "tyrant". You don't say "tear-ant", do you? :P

I would say Necrons, because right now my biggest pain in the ass is painting...Necrons seem almost ridiculously easy. It's easier to get an army of Necrons painted to a good standard than an army of T'au painted over a black undercoat. :-\

Wow, I must praise you for your courage. You're planning on collecting two of, or perhaps eventually all three, of the widely most hated armies in 40k.

Depends on the play style you want, for a change of pace from non shooty to HTH. You might want to try 'Nids.

I call them 'Nids. ;D

To be honest Necron playstyle is just as radically different.
