Default Searching for.....something

Hi, I'm RendeR,

I'm a Necron player who has nearly completed his entire Necron army and am beginning to get restless for a second army to build and learn to play. I'm considering Tau along with Tyranids and possibly Dark Eldar (very not likely though see eldar comment coming up). I'm just not thrilled at all with the generic "we bad as hell but we're boring too" space marines and I'm just not flaky enough to enjoy Elda of either flavor....

So tell me, Why Tau? What makes the young race worthwhile? I'm hoping to find some really good reasons to dive into an army.

So give me the secrets, show me the fascination of the "Greater Good"

+++Well I'm afraid that before I can begin to extol unto you the virtues of the noble Tau, I'm gonna have to say (as the local Chaos Mod) JOIN CHAOS!!! Ahem+++

+++Why should you play Tau? (From a fluff POV) the Tau are good army to choose if you always have to play the good guys. The reason being, that the Tau are the ONLY good guys in the whole 40k galaxy. Even mankind is rife with corruption. (From a gaming POV) you'll like the Tau if you like shooting stuff with some of the best and most hi-tech weaponry the 41st millennium has to offer! (From a modelling and painting POV) the Tau can be one of the easiest armies to paint and they also require very little conversion. However there's also plenty of opportunity to make your Tau army really stand out from the crowd - plenty of Tau conversion inspiration on the Conversions forum here at TO!+++

+++And now why you should play Chaos : (From a fluff POV) Chaos are good army to choose if you always have to play the bad guys. The reason being, that Chaos is the most evil army in the 41st millennium, which itself is a pretty evil place to be! (From a gaming POV) you'll like a Chaos army if you variety. The Chaos army is one of the most versatile armies of all in Warhammer 40k, it can be built to excell at shooting or assault, or a bit of both. There are 4 chaos gods your army can be built around, and each has a unique playing style. There's also a Lost and the Damned army list which allows you to field an army made from cheap, expendable troops rather than elite warriors of the gods. (From a modelling and painting POV) Chaos is possibly the BEST army of all for conversions, the very nature of the Chaos gods causes their champions to mutate, and if the champion is lucky he will be granted many other gifts from his patron. All of this can be well represented with a blob of greenstuff and a tenticle here and there, or perhaps something more involved+++

+++I hope I've managed to sell your soul to Chaos, if not then I hope I've persuaded you to join the greater good +++

'Welcome to the forums and have fun', if you want to look into the armies your interested in then i recommend you browse the respective board for inspiration by on means or another, possibly the ever useful 'Know your self' threads as they can tell you quite abit.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.
