Default Hello everybody

So ya, hi. I guess I should explain myself a bit. I got into 40k two years ago and my first army was the Tau because I thought the tanks and battle suits looked really cool. I didn't have any trouble with the steep learning curve that a lot of people experience when starting Tau, and was winning games right away. About six months ago I started making a Gue'vassa Imperial Guard army using doctrines. It's mechanized storm troopers (I'm using Kasrkins) with a squad of ogryns, some kroot mercs, and a sanctioned psyker with an Honorifica Imperialis and an force weapon just to suprise people. The army is still being built, but I have a feeling it's going to get slaughtered frequently.

The sanctioned psyker is the commander of the army fluffwise and I've been writing fiction about him for a while now.

Speaking of fiction I submitted a new story to the fiction section. It follows a mission led by Sergeant Tanik and was my first effort into fiction writing. Since then I've improved, significantly I hope, and I plan to submit some of my later writing to this site in the future.

For those people on SpaceWolves and/or the Black Library boards I have the same name there, so don't think I'm stealing anyone's material

Hope to have interesting and productive discussions with all of you.

Vimes

Hello there, welcome to Tau Online!
Enjoy yourself here, it's great to see that the biggest problem we tend to have with new members - lack of spelling and grammar - is obviously no problem for you.

And the Honorifica Imperialis on a traitor to the Emperor? Shame, shame! :P

The fanfiction I said I posted is now actually up in the fluff/stories section. It's called Sewer Crawling. I hope you guys enjoy it and thanks for the warm welcome.

Hey there, where did you get that Tau avatar? I've never seen artwork by GW featuring a colored closeup of a Tau Firewarrior.

It's one of the avatars available on the Black Library forums. I don't know where they got it from. On the Black Library forums I actually use Kage as an avatar, but I figured I'd go with the firewarrior because it's a really nice picture and this is Tau Online.

Ah... So I would assume it was cover art for one of their books. Thanks
