Default New to Tau, not to 40k

Hi all,
I just managed to get a large number of Tau models from a friend who had 3-4 armies already. Im pretty excited to join the faction, as I had a number of choices before this and could never make up my mind.

I have bounced between chosing Imperial Guard(dont want to paint huge platoons of troops), Vanilla Space Marines(never really digged the space marine armor),Orks (love the ranged minis, dont like the focus on close combat in a sci fi game),Alpha Legion(love the fluff, do not like the Chaos Marine models), pre Heresy Alpha Legion(never really digged the space marine armor,White Scars(wanted a small sci fi army so I didnt have to paint that much), back to Orks(when the new codex released), then finally Tau.

My overall goal for an army was to be ranged focused and mobile. I like the idea of Helicopters/Hovercraft swooping in from afar and dropping off elite units like SAS Teams/Rangers and having them complete an objective. I find that the Tau fit my mold of what a proper science fiction army should be, without the overall devotion to the Emperor, but more along the lines of a devotion to the Tau Empire. Mobile Tau all the way.

Later,
Jadin

Hi 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

I see you have made a wise choice. Get to reading the tacticas in the Tau Board and you will be pleased we are up to par with the other 40K sites like Librarium Online, Warseer etc We also have other army boards if you like to take a look into the army. So, pay the Tau Board a visit, will you? ^^

Thank you for the welcome. I read the rules. I've been trolling the Tau forum for some time looking for ideas.

Tau'Va friend

Looks like you got most things figured out.
Is the plan to be devil fish heavy? Lots of stealth suit maybe?

Yes to both. I planned on running 2 squads of Fire Warriors in Fish, a unit of Pathfinders with Fish, 2 units of Stealth Suits, and a unit of Crisis along with my Shas'O. The remaining points will be spent on more Fire Warriors in Fish and Hammerheads/Piranhas depending on how I feel.
