Default A newly minted Shas'o says Ni Hao.

Hey all, how's it going? I'm new to WH40K in general, first real contact being the DoW game and got egged to give TT a shot. Since I always had a softspot for mecha from BattleTech to Gundam, I started cruising around to see if a 15 Crisis battleforce (2 heroes + retinue each and all 3 elites being Crisis teams) can be viable. As such, I think I'd go a Mechtau build, but I've no clue what goes where, or even how to upgrade them properly.

Hope to learn much more of the Greater Good from you guys in future! /bow

Well, to have a legal army you'd need at least one squad of fire warriors and your crisis commander, but after that it's pretty much up to you so long as you stay within the bounds of the FOC. :P

I got hooked through DoW as well.

Hello and welcome to Tau Online

Things to do:
1. Read the rules
2. Use of proper grammar and spelling; use the spell checker
3. No spamming unless it's here ;D
4. Be polite; don't flame people 8)
5. Don't resurrect old topics; necromancy is heresy of the highest level here in TO :-\
6. Don't double post; use the 'Modify Message' button to edit your post ^-^
7. Use the Search function to find a topic first before putting up a new one :P

I see another Cadre has joined Tau Online. I see you want a Crisis Suit- Heavy Army. Well, head over to the Tau Board to get info and tactics for your kind of Tau Hunter Cadre. I'm sure our Moderators there will be happy to help you out. So, go take a look and search for whatever info you need. Enjoy your stay in TO ^^

Welcome to the forms. Hope you enjoy yourself here. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'm sure you'll get a friendly answer no matter what the question.

If you want to start a MECHTau army you need a Commander and a FW team. Basically your army should have lots of Tanks and transports but make sure you have quite a few troops as well or you could die very easily.

LOL!

Thanks so much for the help! I've been ploughing the threads for ideas and stuff, and yes its been Fishloads of help. I might be rushing into things, but with all the guys at me uni's club pushing from behind, I'm posting a prototype 1.5k in the Tau lists. Do give me more help; I really need it. ><

@Wissam:

Wo hen hao, Duo Xie Le! (I'm fine, thank you very much!)

I always felt one with the Tau due to my cultural heritage. But better not speak too much Tau or I'd get pinned by MODfire.
