Default OH HAI!

Hello everyone. I've been lurking around the site for a few days, figured I might as well actually register. I just started getting into 40K; picked up a Tau battleforce, but I'm still kinda indecisive on how to paint it. Plus I want to make a conversion Shas'O, but I still haven't figured out exactly how I want the guy to look.

Ah, decisions decisions. Well, if nothing else I can enter that writing contest; I've got some talent in that area, or so I've been told. Also, have there actually been any Tau stories published? I've never seen any at my local book stores; it's all humans and Eldar.

Welcome to the forums dude.

Painting and conersions? You can always ask those questions in the hobby board in their appropriate subboard.

So far there is only Fire Warrior for Tau stories.

Hello and welcome to the site. For another look at the Tau, you could check out "For the Emperor," the first book in the Ciaphas Cain series. That one's written by Sandy Mitchell and (in my opinion) was a pretty good read. Tau play a decent sized roll in the book.

Also, you might want to keep an eye out for "Star of Damocles." The title suggests something to do with the Damocles Gulf so there's a good chance it'll be set during the Damocles Gulf Crusade (if you can call that pitiful foray a crusade...). It's the sequal to Rouge Star so you might want to read that, too. I've heard tell it's a solid read.

I'm also pretty sure that the "Last Chancer" books have a bit of Tau in them, though I haven't read them.

There's also a good chance that there's at least one Tau story in the massive and imposing collection of short stories known as "Let the Galaxy Burn." While I'm yet to finish it (side-tracked for the last few months, currently with "Eisenhorn"), there's been quite a few good stories in it so far.

Hope that helped and I do hope you enjoy your stay here.

See you around the forums,

-Grandpa Ducky

Ragriz, he is new. We must teach him that proper spelling and grammar is key.

I think Ragriz meant:

Tsk, You got it wrong as well!


What Scottish Gecko meant was this:

I think this is what Ragriz meant:

Notice the asterix.

As you can see prolonged exposure to the forum makes us quite mad. AHA!

*Runs off cackling into the night*
