Default Just wandered in....

Hello all

Been lurking here awhile, but just taking the plundge in now.

Hello all

I've been playing 40k for 20 years now and in all that time have only played Dark angels (Deathwing to be exact).
But I recently started a Tau army, and have had excellent results from it. My Tau army currently sits at...
1 hammerhead
1 skyray
4 firewarrior squads
3 devilfish
13 crisis suits
3 Broadsides
12 stealth suits
40 gun drones
6 Hvy Gun drones
1 Piranna
20 pathfinders
2 Etherials
1 Shadowsun
1 Farsight

I have read alot of the fluff for the tau and since I don't have any kroot or vespids, I field a farsight army most of the time.

I do loads of conversion works (again all space marine), but hope to do more Tau as they have really hooked me

Cheers and Happy Hunting

Welcome Brother fellow Shas'la!

How are those heavy gun drones working out for you?
I like your amount of pathfinders, do you ever use them all?
Do you have pictures of your army?

...I'll sit down and shut up now, I've probably had too much coffee again ^^

Hi there

The Hvy gun drones are excellent. I normally have 2 with markerlights and that gives me 10 burst cannons. Just saturday played a game at my local club and I popped in next to a predator and got a rear shot on it, it was toast! With up to 36 str 5 shots appearing in the rear of your enemy, it doesn't make a big difference if they have a bad BS, but with markerlight support, they are deadly.

I have used 16 pathfinders before, drove my (Chaos) opponent nuts as I totally annialated his thousand suns squad with their AP3 bolters in 1 round. I lit them up with 10 out of 16 pathfinders and had 3 squads of firewarriors work their magic

I am in the process of painting my army, been hard to pick a color scheme as I also play Deathwing (120 terminators and counting) and I was wanting to steer away from a "storm-trooper" color theme, but I have to admit they look good in white. So I'll have both armies in white Guess it saves on paint

I'll post some pics as soon as I can... in the meantime, here is a pic of my Deathwing... (My pride and Joy)


Cheers and Happy Hunting
