Default New to Tau Online, New to Warhammer 40k, new to Tau.

Hey everybody, This is a totally awesome site, and have decided to try my best to become an excellent tau player. I have a very noobish way of looking at armies, and am totally clueless when it comes to building one, so bear with me, and give me any suggestions you believe can help me with me and my noobish tactics.

well you picked the hardest army to start with so you should brace yourself for 7-10 losses straight (assuming the people you regularly play are experienced players). and then one day... it will just... CLICK! And you'll understand the Tau.

The fact that you picked a REAL army (and not the Spacehomos or the EZ-Mode Necrons) has already made you a non-noob. Welcome to the greatest army in the game ;D

@ Billy

Please read the rules.Army bashing is not allowed here.

@Shadow

Tau do have indeed a fairly steep learning curve, but with our help, it will be easier to get ot the peek. Simply move down to the Tau Board and ask your question/read our Tactica and learn from our mistakes.

BillTheBody, if you'd read the rules thouroughly you'd have seen that double posting isn't allowed

I'd advise you post in the Tau board and look for help/strategies there, you could also look through all the articles on our newly updated website

Welcome to Tau Online Shadowdarklight, if you have any forum related queries feel free to shoot me a PM.

And Tau can br tricky to learn, but are very tactically flexible with their many different loadouts. Post your list up and see what advice our Tau players can offer!

Disliking SM is one thing. Using derogatory remarks as homos is another. The first one is ok. The second one isn't.

Yes, someone with a dead space marine in their avatar IS scolding you. He is also a mod.


As for Tau being tricky to learn, I wholeheartedly agree. My friend who's played them for a very long time is still clueless :P

If you've played about half of the available armies (as in you using them, not fighting against them) then youll pick up enough expertiese to easily go into another army.
My Tau force is ownly 2 suits strong at the moment (i have had a cash shortage) but I've got a fairly good list up my sleeves (even though a lot of people in the Tau board say it won't be very good :P)

If you're starting tau then just browse through topics in the Tau board until you find some help, also, you might consider looking at the TO website as it contains some of our better articles (but they span back to 4th edition and 3rd Tau book) You might also consider starting a new topic if there is no useful information lying around.
