Default Hi guys, I'm new

Hi guys, I'm new here. Okay well, I am just starting Tau and was lookin' for some info on how to play them so I googled "Tau Empire" or something like that and found this website. So I decided to join up.

Here's a little info on me:

I first started playing 40K a few months ago as the Eldar, soon, I discovered that I didn't like them and was having a hard time playing them. I always found my self just shooting and never going into close combat (hint, hint). Then, my friend asked me to build a pack of Fire Warriors for him (he was off playing a game). So, as I was gluing them together and I'm like "Woah, these things look awesome!" After that I bought a box of Fire Warriors and a Tau Codex a few days later. Tau really is the army for me because it's perfect for exactly what I like to do, mow my enemy down before they get to me. Now I'm saving up for the Battleforce which I eagerly await to get (I'm gonna be mowing A LOT of lawns in the next few weeks ;D)

In real life, my name's Julian, I'm 13 and going into 8th grade, and I live in the Chicago suburbs.

Welcome to the Tau online inn, breakfast is 6:00 to 9:00, and there is a complimentary mint waiting for you on your pillow. Feel free to read the rules and enjoy your stay. A bell hop will be up shortly with your bags, and check out time is at 12:00. If you have any questions just dial the number 5 on your phone for room service. Enjoy your stay!

Are you sure you're 13? You type better than some of the really, really old people around here. Oh! And welcome to the Greater Good! Opening and assembling a Battleforce box is a great pleasure, and a great pain at the same time. It took me hours in front of the television to cut & trim my Fire Warriors free from their sprues then organize and glue them, and myself. While I understand you like to sit and shoot your opponents into oblivion, may I suggest you do some searching on Mech Tau or Mechanized Tau. It's less stand and shoot, more shoot and scoot.

Thanks guys, and UN, I only type perfectly because "chatroom-speak" (ie: spelling the words 'you' and 'are' with the letters 'u' and 'r&#39 really bugs me, I can't stand it, so I type correctly.

And 'Mech-Tau'? What are 'Mech-Tau'? Do you mean Battlesuits?

Do a search! But generally, a real Mech Tau force means nobody walks. No Broadsides, no Kroot, no Fire Warriors on foot. Everything moves fast or has the ability to move fast. In other words, all troops are equipped with a Devilfish, your Crisis and Hammerheads take on Anti-Armor roles, Gun Drones, Stealth Suits fly around causing chaos while the Pathfinders light things up then run away. It's quite an amazing army when used in the hands of a professional since it leaves your opponent trying to chase you down the board.

It's also pretty close to how the US army operates today.
