Default Need help with my Army

Ok I'm new to [glow=red,2,300]Warhammer:40k[/glow] and have some questions:

1. What should I get first rulebook, table, tau codex or troops?

2. If I start a club do I need to register it?

3. Do clubs get funding?

4. What Tau troops should I get first?

5. What do you guys think of Chaos Tau?

First of all, hi and welcome to the Forum's.
1. That is a tough one, I would get troops first as the rule book ain't gonna be out for a while.
2. Do you mean start a site?
4. Fire Warrior's.
5. Unlikely but possible. This should have it's own topic.

I drift in and out a lot, so my return really does not deserve it's own topic.
So instead it's drafted into my name!
Thrill to it's exploits!

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


Welcome to Tau Online:

1. If you're playing Tau, you must get 1 Commander and 1 Fire Warriors. So, it's a safe bet to get them. And another Fire Warrior Squad to have your minimal 1 HQ and 2 Troops.

There will be a new rulebook coming out so I would suggest you wait for the new one, the 5th Edition.

Unless you want fancy terrain and such, take your time. Your normal dinner table along with some things as terrains would suffice and if you're making one, please visit the Terrain Section of the Hobby Board for ideas and suggestions.

Yes, get the Tau Codex. It is all essential during the game.

2. Check with your local authorities; town council and such.

3. Nope. So, charge membership or find other sources of funds.

4. 1 Commander and 2 Fire Warrior Squad for that basic troop setup.

5. Very unlikely.

Hope that helps
