Default I Come For the Greater Good

So, Warhammer 40k Dawn of War and subsequent expansions are awesome games. I say this first because they are what led me here in a roundabout way.

Playing dawn of war got me interested in the stories. Looking into the stories got me interested in the game. Making my first few purchases on ebay (<150 bucks for about 250 bucks worth of stuff, I love ebay) led me to think about conversions. And the first entry on a google search for tau conversion is Tau Online's coversion guides.

So, blame Dawn of War for me coming here.

Now that why I'm here is out of the way, mayhap a bit about myself is in order.

My name is Will and obviously I'm fairly new to 40k, I honestly don't know how I avoided it, save that I only really became any kind of a tabletop geek in about the last 4 years. I've always been a pretty hardcore gamer, but never really had anyone to do any kind of tabletop stuff with until that time.

I'm 21 years old, and looking forward to not only learning some great conversion/tactical tau techniques here, but also to sharing anything of help and interest I might stumble across while fighting and building for the Greater Good.

Here's hoping I've found the forums to succeed at that in

Hey and welcome to Tau Online. I also got in the same way as you.

Dawn of War PC Game > Wikipedia; finding about Warhammer 40000 > Bought Warhammer 40000 novels > Tabletop Miniatures

But the difference is: I am the servant of the God-Emperor of Mankind. I am one of many billions of his servants within the Imperial Guard; the first, last and often the only line of defence againts the enemies of Mankind.

Hope to see you around and remember:
1. No spamming
2. Proper grammar and spelling

Spamming is for the childrens lol.

Seriously though, marines was my first choice, however, with the rampant popularity of them I 1) wanted to stand out from those I'll be playing against a bit more and 2) found it far to difficult to snap up a good deal on ebay because of how popular they are and needed something a little easier to get my hands on. Tau fit both of these needs, as well as satisfying my need to forge a compelling background for my army, so they were just as good as SM, and easier to get

Welcome! It seems that Dawn of War was a sucessful marketing plan... er... game. As that is how I also got started (and a friend was in it aswell).

Welcome to Tau Online. ^^ If you ever need any help be sure to ask, there's always someone on hand to assist.

I got into Warhammer 40k through the books than the models. I liked how they looked so I wanted to paint my own. Could care less about the game personally. :P
