Default bitz?

well my parents got my little brother(hes 7) the new Tau Battle Force, because I got him and my dad into Warhammer 40000, my dad is going to start a Space Marine army after he helps my little brother with his Tau, but there are a bunch of bits that we don't know what they are, how do you guys know what bits are what?

Do you have the codex? Some bits are identified there.

Otherwise see this thread, that looks at the bits in the old battleforce: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=839.0

1. Dont glue any crisis weapons on, buy magnets so you can switch them off per game

2. If you look through the codex, under the model pictures it shows which of most of the harder to identify weapons are which.

3. Pulse carbines=short guns pulse rifles=long guns. You want pulse rifles

Really the codex should explain most of it, just look through it and with a bit of studying it will answer most of your questions. We here can answer the rest

There's a great section near the back where thay have close-ups of fully painted bits, telling you exactly what they are.

Some bits are just extraneous and are just there for people who like the detail.
[center]Till shade is gone,
Till water is gone,
Into the Shadow with teeth bared,
Screaming defiance with the last breath,
To spit in Sightblinder's eye on the Last Day.

"Dovie'andi se tovya sagain"

Learn to shorten your reach! If your foe can come close enough to negate your striking power, all stratagem is lost, and when all stratagem is lost, the battle is lost.

Tell me now, is there a man among you here, is there no one who will stand up and try to fight? Tell me man, is there not one in all your ranks, is there no one who values courage over life?
