Default Hi!

Just thought I'd introduce myself, I joined the forums a few days ago, but only just got round to writing this.
I've been playing Tau for a while now, and am currently attempting to build an all battlesuit army.

How much points are battle suits? aren't they a lot? That must mean you'll be easily outnumbered

Don't worry about that outnumber. Crisis Suits provide an AMAZING amount of firepower. It is literally depressing when a commander rolls like 12 dice, and his two bodyguards together roll about 12... and there's still three other elite choice crisis teams... T.T

Oh, ya, and welcome!

Thanks for the welcome and supporting my ideas! ;D
I've been playing Tau for a couple years now, and was getting bored of all the cookie cutter mech Tau and static Tay lists, and decided i wanted to create something more unusual...and while battlesuits are quite a lot of points, DakkaDakkaDude is right, they can lay down an amazing barrage of fire, and can take out infantry and vehicles easily...also bear in mind that stealth suits and broadsides count as battlesuits as well, so by adding broadsides, I can let the crisis suits, stealths and HQ deal with the enemy infantry.

Welcome!

Lucky for you, the Apocolypse set 'Tau Rapid Insertion Force' has just what you need to get your army underway - 9 Battlesuits, 3 Stealths, and a collection of Drones. Throw in a Crisis Commander and you're good to go. ;D

Yeh, what also helps is the huge number of suits I alredy own...37 crisis suits, 3 teams of 6 stealths, 15 broadsides, and lots of drones...all my friends and i play for pieces, so if you win, your opponent gives you a piece, arranged before the battle
