I'm Leonardo AKA Lo I have been playing 40k for less than 6 months I started off with a Chaos army and about 1 month ago I purchased about a 1700 point Tau army ( raw figure cost). I have been looking online for some different perspectives on how to play them. To date I have played them about 8 times and have won all but 2. Both those losses were to fast armies, the Harlequins tend to be my bane. I play with a small group so I'm always up against Orcs, Eldar(banshees, scorps and the evil harlequins), Necrons, Grey KAAniggits and Chaos of all sorts. We tend to play 2 on 2 so dont think those wins were me all by my lonesome. I admit to playing like a noob since I barely use FW's. I tend to use my BS's an awefull lot. The same goes with my CS's. Till I stumbled upon this site I tended to use my FW's only to harrass and didnt see them as anything other than meat for the grinder. We tend to play pretty high point games 2500 to 5000 a side so I get to field most of my army( 45 FW's, 16 kroot, 1 HH, 6 BS's, 4 CS's, 9 SS's, 12 PF with and without rail rifles, 1 DF,1 ethereal and a buttload of drones and a case not bad for $180). I also subscibed to the place them well and let them walk into my wall O fire. In short I guess I have been doing it all wrong. But I'm willing to learn!!

Possibly consider using paragraphs, makes things a whole lot easier.
Wlecome to the forum, I'm not much help with the Tau, but try playing some smaller games. 1000 points a side is playable in about 3 hours, whilst 2500-5000 needs multiple players and takes ages.
Learn how good things are in samll armies, then slowly add more toys till you find what you're good at.

Also consider some more Kroot, they are often understimated.

Anyway, Welcome aboard. If you ever ned help with or against a necron army, look for me in the Necron Board.

Do it for KJ
