Hey all.

My name is Matt, pretty new to Warhammer40K. I've had a few friends who play it, and I am very interested in the whole word of it all. Understanding how things work. Just never actually played before (aside from a few trial games at 'Games Workshop'.)

Just purchased my first army today. Got the Tau Fire Warrior team. Going to be putting them togeather and putting a base coat on today. Picking out a colour scheme and some tips on how to paint them (thats how I found this website).

My roommate (whom we decided to start playing togeather!) has gone the path of Space Marines. But should still be fun

Looking forward to learning more on this site as well as collecting my Tau Army.

See ya around!

Hi there Echo,

Sounds great, starting out with a friend is a good way to keep yourself motivated too. If it's direction or advice you're after there are hundreds of people that can help you. Once you've painted a couple of models you could post them up and let people give you tips - it's a good way of letting people know what your strengths and weaknesses are when it comes to painting.

You might want to look at these topics to get a feel for the place:

The Rules
The Forum Ranking System
The Forum 'Karma' System

If you have any questions or difficulties please feel free to PM me or any other memebr of staff.

Echo....sounds familiar....and why an image of a dolphin pops up when I see that name......oh welll, anyway.....

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

Hello and welcome to our little corner in the internet. Ja'Khul was nice enough to link you the rules and such but I'll give a summary of it as well so you don't your mind blown away by all the long rules and such. Hope to see you around
