Hello and welcome to Tau Online where Tau players (and other army players) meet and discuss Tau (and other army)'s...uhm...stuff and...uhm....thingy!

Read the rules and visit the Tau board.

And to make your welcome extra special here's a 21 Hellstorm Cannon salute:

*21 Imperator Titans shoots their Hellstorm Cannon into sky, welcoming Elitehunter117 to the forums*

Ignore the dead burned bird carcasses that fell :P

Welcome to the forums!

Tau aren't the easiest 40k army to pick up, since they can't fall back on armor, close-combat skills, and Leadership in the same manner as the Space Marines. But the Tau have a vast array of tricks for dealing with all manner of opponents, and learning them will ultimately make you a stronger player. They can also be one of the more visually impressive armies in the game, with vast opportunities for conversion and customization in the battlesuits you field.

yeah, but the tau appealed most to me because of their technology and i wanted a really shooty army. luckily i have a few friends at school that play warhammer and they give me advice.

Uhm no double posting and this is the first time i seen a triple posting. Just remember next time double (or even triple) posting is frowned upon here as weel as 1337 speak. Here in TO, we advocate for proper use of spelling and grammar.

Anyway, Emperor Class Titans are subdivied into 2 categories:
1. Imperator: The general titan with hellstorm cannon etc
2. Warmonger: A Titan with long range weaponry. They're like Titan Artillery.

Just use "modify" and the Spell Check. They are there for your protection.

No, I made that mistake when I first started 40K. Also, visit The Enclave if you ever want to talk about non-Warhammer things.

Welcome aboard. Feel free to look around, ask questions and generally integrate yourself into this sprawling mass of often-unwashed gamers.

Just remember to read the Forum Rules, as was as any Sticky threads that might be in the boards you visit. These often contain useful threads, such as links to FAQs. Quite often, if your question is a simple rule-based one, it will be covered in a FAQ.

Lastly, remember that if you have any problems, our Moderators and Staff are happy to help out. If in doubt, just bother someone with a Custom Title; they have to earn those things, after all.

Welcome to TO!

This may seem like a recuring question from every intro, but, what do you want your army to be like (tanks, suits, auxiliaries)? I am genuinly interested. My philosiphy is: TANKS!!! NEED MORE TANKS!!! ;D Hence the Armoured Company (I only play that against people when I tell them and they say they can handle it, so not cheesy and say, "Yeah, 6 tanks in 1500 pts...").
