Default Complete NOOB!!

Hi all. Not only am I new to the forum, I am completely new to the 40k game. I needed a change and decided that 40k (and more specifically tau) would fit the role fine. The whole socialist/ multi-cultural aspect of the Tau appealed to me form the onset and have long admired the models, so here goes!!

I have pre-ordered a good size tau band: 1 army box, devilfish w/ fire warriors, & hammerhead so far and plan to fill it accordingly as I get a better feel for the army as a whole. I have read the Codex multiple times and have a feel for the general strenghts/ weaknesses.

Strengths: High mobility, great ranged combatants, good point cost for troops relative to other armies.

Weaknesses: Poor hand-to-hand combatants, expensive elites and heavy support.

I was thinking that a farsight commander w/ orc fighting upgrades all around in a 1000 pt army might help, but thought I would get some advice first. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Looking forward to actually playing 40k and making the Tau look good.

greatest band in the universe: www.machinaesupremacy.com

"What warriors of men can stand beside the Space Wolves! The Sons of Fenris they are, hardened in the forge of their harsh world, eager for battle and honour. They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."

It appears as though I have forgotten to introduce Deadnight to my new Orkbuster Hammerhead...

In any case, what they said. Welcome to TO, enjoy your stay and be generally polite and intelligent in your posting (I'm privately dancing that you already punctuate, you would have no idea of the trouble w have with non-punctuators.)
