....change your underpants, it is getting foul down here! lol :P
I am from Australia, 20yo, been collecting for about 6 years now. I started with Chaos but ended up not liking all the spiky bits. However i liked the darkness of the chaos theme. So i ended up collecting a Black Templar force, and i do mean force. I got to the point where my army developed into a large 3500 points! So i wanted to change, then tau came out. They may not be as tough as the ol' Templars but do they pack a punch when they fire ;D. I like their similarity to human military units, i.e. Pathfinders = Spec ops, Fire warriors = Grunts, Rail rifle = .50 cal rifle ;D
Using tactics and strategies from cadets and military games/books i tend to outsmart my opponents, however playing with Black Templars just involved huge melee attacks, no brainier there :P
I do enjoy modifying units with my spare bits, which my new mod is a twin-linked flamer drone (prob illegal to use in a game).
Anyways looking forward to discuss tactics/strategy, mods, and general tau stuff.

Cheers 8)

:sadnshocked: You just managed to offend every Black Templar and Ork (especially the Orks) player here. Just kidding.

So can we get some pictures of your Black Templar force? We always love to see pictures of countless minis. I think you should post pictures.

Other than that...
Welcome to Tau Online. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Welcome.

While I may not use strategies from books I do use tactics that I learnt from RTS games.
