Default new on tau

this is my first time

actually registering to tau online although i have been reading for a few weeks now...

ive decided for my third army choice, i want to start tau... i like the designs of the

troops, the story of tau etc etc... but im not sure wuts the best way to use them... i

know moving would be good cause they suck big time in cc... and their guns are pretty

decent... but the thing is i like cc. my other two armies are tyranids and blood angels

(as u can see by name... couldnt think of nethin else). please ne suggestions on how i

can make them a mix of cc and shooty instead of just shooty...

so far i got

the tau box set, a devil fish, and another FW squad gonna get more kroot later this

week

Tau are most definently a more shooty than CC

race, the CC is done mainly by the good old kroot but when it comes to the majority of

all Tau units they are more focused on the fire power rather than the fist.
<br /

>Although Aun&#39;Shi (special Character) in a squad of firewarriors are pretty dam good

in close combat!!! That would be the best unit since the new rules that you may use

special characters without permission will be coming in soon.

im not sure which way i should paint my

FW (or the scheme i want) for my army... i know i want my kroot like the blue FW on my

cheap angelfire site, but i dunno bout the rest.. i kinda like the red more... and i dont

like the "original" tau color scheme for some reason... which do you think is

better? check the sitte (its not alwasy working) www.angelfire.com/psy/jonathanwhite/tau

and add comments on my meson sniper model which is still under construction! ill be done

with it in a few days at most. including painting

I have a nice green snot and red gore colour

scheme with highlights of goblin green and blood red!!!

It looks really good.



I dont like the normal Tau colour scheme its just boring i like it when

people create their own. What you should do is buy a small set of pathfinders and paint

them different colour schemes thats what i originally done with crap craft paints and

then deided on the colours and bought them and painted away

Definatly a mobile Shooty tau. dont get much

better than that! for my Tau, they basically jsut stay black, but their armour and other

various bits are painted with Shadow Grey with an offset of Space Wolves Grey, looks

really nice if done right!
