How much are you willing to spend and what type of army to you want to play.

Mech Static, Hybrid?

Tell him to buy a box of fire warriors theyre are alot so it takes some time to complete, but will give u a feel for what painting the entire army is like. That and you'll know your using them theyre a mandatory choice.

"Hey, man, I'm a PANDA!" the panda shouts back. "Look it up!"

The manager opens his dictionary and reads:

Panda: A tree-dwelling marsupial of Asian origin, characterized by distinct black and white coloring. Eats, shoots and leaves.

What he must have:

The codex

One Crisis suit to use as a Commander.

One box of Fire Warriors.

I would recommend that his initial purchase should include one of the Tanks (A Hammerhead or Skyray could also be used for a Devilfish), another squad of Fire Warriors, and just something that will be fun to try out, possibly a Stealth Team or a Piranha.

From there, he will need to decide what type of force he wants to build. But the above should give him a good start. It might be worth picking up the smaller army box, as it is usually a better deal.

Your talking about that smaller box with 2 squads and a tank? It costs 80 in portugal, and i dont know if those squads that come in it are good...are they? At least that box is good in the space marines army.

I meant the Battleforce. It contains one Crisis Suit, one Transport, one squad of Fire Warriors, one squad of Kroot, and a Stealth team. It is 90$ US, but I do not know the conversion. it is a pretty good start for a Tau army, although some people don't like to use the Kroot.
