Well, personally i would start by buying then devilfish with fire warrior box set. this gives you a troop choice aswell as a transport for the squad. after that buy a battlesuit and Kroot box sets. This will give you a good combat patrol force.

make sure you have plenty of glue and paint and buy the codex and rule book if you haven't already (trust me buy the rulebook after the 5th edition comes out it'll save you money).

Lastly, have fun and keep in touch with the forum.

welcome, read the rules [which someone will no doubt run on and dump on you]if you want advice, look through the tau pages, there'll be loads of advice and tactica's for you to look over. but yeah, start with a box of fire warriors.

welcome to the forum oon i would personally read around the forums and then buy a codex and fire warriors then when youve built them i got some paint so that they look good look at some more fire warriors and kroots and maybe a commander crisis suit if you can stretch and like buster sed a devilfish but my tactics mean i need more infantry but it all depends on what your tactics are hope this helps

Hey oon. Welcome to the forums I would suggest getting the Tau Battleforces; as it gives you 500 points worth of units easily and at a bargain and here it is:

The 10 9 Commandments of God What a newbie of Tau Online should do and the Temporary 10th Commandment:
1. Thou must read the rules
2. Thou must use of proper grammar and spelling; use the spell checker
3. Thou shall not spamming unless it's here ;D
4. Thou shall be polite; don't flame people 8)
5. Thou shall not resurrect old topics; necromancy is heresy of the highest level here in TO :-\

6. Thou shall not double post; use the 'Modify Message' button to edit your post ^-^
7. Thou shall use the Search function to find a topic first before putting up a new one :P
8. Thou must read the stickies of the various Boards first
9. Thou shall not create 'X vs Y' thread or anything of that sort; it's a spawn pool for flames
10. Thou shall offer alcohol to The All-father


OK, buddy. Hope to see you around
