Question What Characters?

Hi. I started collecting a few weeks ago and I'm wondering what to get... I collect Tau. I have 1 pirahna, 1 fire warrior squad, and 3 pathfinders. If you have any tips please tell me.

Thanks, jakejghughes

Go ahead and pick yourself up a battleforce boxed set for the tau. It will give you another squad of firewarriors, a squad of kroot, a crisis suit, a devilfish and I think some stealth suits. This will get you a good start as the crisis suit can play the part of your required force commander. When it comes to crisis suits magnets are your friend btw. Personally I grabbed a commanders boxed set as well so i could actually have the special war gear. definitely get yourself a broadside and with just a broadside and the battleforce boxed set you can start playing small unit fights of 500 or so points. This will let you get a feeling for how tau fight and you can expand out your collection from there to match your style.

Shame you can't get the megaforce anymore, I started with that and it had me set up for a while.
