Default Greetings to the Tau

Heya guys,

I'm pretty new to 40k, although I have been a fantasy lover for years and years. In order to stop myself from buying yet another fantasy army, I managed to get some old tau models pretty cheap. They hadn't even been painted or assembled so I got the whole experience from sratch. I don't particularly like 40k, and know only a little of it... However, the tau, after reading a few articles, appealed to me as they are rated as the weakest yet most tactically enclined army. I agree after my first three games! Devilfish rock, and running circles around the moorines while shooting at them really got me into tau. I'll be using this site to get painting information, tactics and extra goodies that one needs to play an army the right way...

So, hello!

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Hello and welcome to Tau Online. Please read the rules and start posting.

And FYI, the Tau are only weak in CC (unless you get Kroots) but when it comes to shooting *sigh* Pretty deep shit if you ask me.

Also, retarded~ism and randomness is expected of you here in TO. Visit the Enclave for it.

Oh you might want to subscribe to the Strange Gazzet.

Welcome to the forums Squidar! And weak? Tau? Weak? You are un-informed, my young friend. you have much to learn > Okay, so they're not the bees knees in Close combat, but when it comes to ranged combat, they are absolutely insanely good. And also, we are home to the most powerfull gun in the whole game! Yes. It has S10, and AP1. It is... The Railgun >

Bubgum, you are right. We must teach this young padawan the ways of the railgun ;D.

No, FT, We warn the new members about the scorpion ninjas that you train.

Everyone warns the new members about Me, Zen Ai, and Crisis, the mad ones. Well, mad by TO standards. And thats something! ;D

randomness and weirdness...much of that u shall find from me... its the fifth time this month someone has told me to give up as an environmental scientist and become a stand up comedian....oh well! ;D

young padawan....nay... I have been tried in the cruciable that is fantasy..and i must say, coming from that background and using 'our' tactics in a mobile and shooty force like tau really really really threw the proverbial spanner into the works... I have much to learn, but unique insight i might also bring... he he

*puts squid on head*

right, now that my official hat is on...let the Irkan invasion, i mean Greater Good, begin...
