Can you add in 'they are just cool' ?

I just love everything about them... the way they are built, the story behind them, the idea of long range force, the suits, the tanks, the tactics... everything about the tau is appealing to me.

However, I have to say i like SMs a lil more... they remind me of crusaders.

I started Tau because I got a pretty large Tau army for relatively cheap, but I do like their sleak models and the Mechwarrior feel of their battlesuits.

I'll be a lot happier once I manage to make my human Tau army though.

I like armies with excellent ranged firepower. That, and our gaming group already had several guard players, and tau had just been released.
