Default Howdy All

Name's Jay and I'm very new to all of this. I played one single very small game using someone else vanilla space marine army and after looking over everything in general I thought I'd take a try at Tau since they looked shiny. I picked up box of lil fire warriors and started painting away. Shortly there after my ex-roomates boyfriend gave me a big box o' Tau when he got laid off from the local GW shop. My roommate, who was collecting Eldar and convinced me to get started, moved several thousand km away shortly there after giving me little reason to continue. I boxed up all my little plastic men and set them aside until now.

Now I'm looking at actually getting into the game. I don't have the Tau 'dex, but I got it memorized fairly well and the 4th ed rulebook came in the mail yesterday. I settled on a color scheme of different shades of blue/black/silver for my army with odd highlights of red. The one full crisis I have done atm looks fairly sharp (I think). I love painting and modeling, but I also enjoy winning things. In every game I've played I've designed for the roleplay factor first and then tweaked everything after that within those constructs to be strong.

My full army consists of:
4 - XV8 Crisis Battlesuit
1 - XV88 Broadside Battlesuit
1 - Krootox
6 - Pathfinders
1 - Ethereal
20 - Drones
29 - Fire Warriors
12 - Kroot
1 - Devilfish

I'm open for suggestions on what more to get if anyone has opinions. I want 2 more full squads of firewarriors, boost my kroot up to 20, get a team of stealths, 2 more broadsides and a hammerhead.

As for non warhammery stuff, I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I'm 24 years old, currently blissfully unemployed and not looking for work after a stint with Telus. My other interests involve cooking, coding, computers, roleplaying, and otherwise being a big geek.

Welcome to Tau Online Jay!
If you want people to look at your army or help you with units you'll probably get a lot more help in the Army List or Tau boards.
Telus? Please enlighten me. ;D
Anyways, hope you like it here.
Regards,
Restayvien

Welcome to the forums, if you haven't already done so already, please read the forum rules and I hope you enjoy yourself here. As Rezzy said, if you would like some advice, please feel free to open up a new topic in the Tau or Army Lists board.

And I hope you enjoy it here.

Welcome, have a look round and see what you like. Good luck with the Tau, but the shiniest army is the Necrons.

However, enjoy yourself and have fun.
