Welcome to the forums!

Go easy on the smilies, though. They must be used in moderation lest we run out.

Have a look through the Army Lists sub-forum. There are many excellent lists there for all levels of point-value. Once you work out your own army list, feel free to post it there for others to help you hone its edge.

But yeah, a Railhead is a perfect choice against both Marines and Imperial Guard. It is really the rest of the army you need to work out, and there a number of questions you need to ask. Do you plan to use Kroot? Would you rather use Devilfish-mounted or Static Fire Warrior Teams? How many Markerlights do you want? How do you see yourself using Crisis suits?

Also, Imperials and Marines are totally different armies. Imps horde (with tanks) whereas Marines are elite killers (wiv mad skillz. and tanks. but not as many as the Guard). The only recurring theme here is vehicles, so take lots of Anti-vehicle and Heavy Infantry stuff (much as I hate to say it, Fireknives fit the bill here). That means:

>Missile Pods
>Fusion Blasters
>Railguns
>Plasma Rifles

and of course, 24 S5 AP5 shots never go amiss, especially with FoF.


He's not kidding about the smilies. I tried to put one in this post, but it appears this hour's quota has been filled.

EDIT: Also, doesn't this live in "Tau Army lists"?

As it is used now, the Army List sub-forum is more for reviewing lists rather than requesting suggestions for starting a list. Once this turns into a full list-construction thread I will send it over there. At this point, though, I imagine the discussion will be more on the theory involved in fighting Marines vs. fighting Guard.
