Default Wow...this is so kewl!!!!

Whats up guys?

I just discove rd the WH40k universe about a month ago.* I'm a hardcore videogamer, but I was starting to get a little burned out on 'em.

I was walking by a friends desk at work one night, and he was browsing through a White Dwarf mag. The slick models caught my eye and I asked him about what he was reading. After an hour or so of explanations, I couldn't believe I'd been missing out on something so freaking cool for so long...

Long story short, my addictive personality and I have purchased a fat Tau army off E-Bay for around 300 smackers (after much wife-begging)

It included:

-50 or so FW's (Former owner was a 12-year old with little painting acumen, some of the models were F.U.B.A.R. :-[ )
-50 or so Kroot Carnivores
-14 Pathfinders (After reading this site and others, most of those are going back on E-Bay)
-10 Stealth Suits
-7 Crisis Suits
-2 Broadsides
-4 Kroot hounds
-1 Kroot Shaper
-1 Regular Ethereal dude
-1 Aun'shi
-1 Commander Farsight
-3 Devilfish
-2 Hammerheads

+Tons of bits and trees

Once I solidify a 1500pt army, the rest is going back on sale...



I thought the painting aspect would be difficult to pick up, but I've been a amateur comic artist all my life, and after reading a ton of painting tut's, I picked up the techniques pretty quickly.* My buddy says my first few models are damn near pro quality, but*I'll post a few pics in a couple weeks and let you guys give me some tips and pointers...

Well, anyway, glad to be here...this site is awesome! I've been lurking for a couple weeks, and some of the insight here has helped me alot.

I've got all 3 systems...but I let my little bro take my PS2. Right now I'm playing Brothers in Arms, Republic Commando, Fight Night rnd 2, and MVP '05.

Honestly though, when I'm playing my games nowadays...I'm thinking paint schemes. :P

First, welcome to the site.
Second, if you seek help FROM tau players it would be better to post in the Tau section.

Welcome aboard McCoy Be sure to check the Forum Rules and happy posting!

Sounds like you got a pretty good setup going for building a perfect 1500 point list, though I would recommend you keep enough of it to play up to 1850 points should you ever want to change your list up a bit.

Make a post about making a list for 1500~1850 points in the Tau board and you'll have more lists created for you than you can shake a stick at, but beware, they'll all be very similar I'm afraid, so don't be shy to ask for some examples of non-popular methods to use the models you have, and all that.

And should you have any interest in the Inquisition, feel free to drop by the Inquisitorial forums and say Hi

It may have been great, it may have been awful, but this is not the place to ask.
