Default The Newbie Tau

I've been trolling on these forums for a while now, but since I'm picking up my Tau Battleforce Box Friday, I figured I'd actually join up so I can share my victories and (more likely) defeats. And get advice, that's a big one.
See you all in the forums.

Greetings 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
8. Read the stickies of the various Boards first

Good choice on buying the battleforce. There's an article somewhere instructing how to make a legal army from those models inside the box. I'm sure you'll be able to find it and/or one of the members and/or moderators will link it to you for you :P Read the various articles and stickies in the Tau Board and if you have more questions, go ahead and ask.

Hope you enjoy your stay in Tau Online ^^

A! Troll! *Fetches pitchforks and torches*

Ehem... Welcome!

And as long you work for the greater good, you always win!
Well, unless you get purged, eaten or something other bad stuff...

Have you decided on what play style and army colors you are aiming for?

Not sure yet as to play style, most likely in the Kauyon style with a mixed Mech/Infantry army until I really establish a personalized play style. I tend to go a bit on the defensive, especially against unknown armies and when just starting out.

As for paint scheme, I'm thinking Shadow Grey with Ice blue highlights, or possibly the other way around.
I play Fantasy too, and apparently others think I'm a good painter (I won the Best Painted Army award at my last local tournament), but I just don't quite see it myself. It'll be interesting to paint more of a mechanical army as compared to Tzeentch Mortals, and I'm hoping to kick my painting up a notch.
