Welcome to the Forum! Hope we can help you out.

My first suggestion is to take a peek up at the FAQ section, and some of the other "sticky" posts at the top of the Tau section. Some of those should be able to help out your initial curiosities; some of the others are tactics and such, and can wait until you have a better grasp of the basics. Check those out first, and if you have more questions don't hesitate to ask!

(They might need to be more specific than "HElp!" though."

What sort of things are you interested to know? I've already suggested it, but I think it's fair to say it again, that a codex will definately help things out. As will 40k rules in general.

Here's a good question though, when it comes to Tau, are you more interested in the theme of the army and the story background, or just the raw stats and numbers that are in the codex? Meaning, do you play for the creation and execution of a balanced force with fluff, or more just to have the power to dominate and not really worry that you use only a few units to accomplish this, etc?

Do you want tons of models? Or just a few?

Do you want to have to paint a lot of models, or just a few?

Do you like vehicles more, or just lots of little guys, running about for the Greater Good?

Most of these questions stem from the Tau codex and the rules of 40k in general, so a Codex might be the best place to start for you. Then come with more specific questions and you'll be all set

Thanks for replying. As I'm new, it's quite reassuring to see I've got some replies. I didn't expect to see them so soon!
I think I really will enjoy painting the models best.
I want loads of models! Then I can paint them all, and put them along my windowsill, facing my bedroom door. That way, if anyone comes in, they'll see them first.
I'll look at a codex, and then come back with more specific questions to ask!

I take it your really new to tau, from your other post in the suggestions board.. so.. to start right from the beginning.. read this and probably have a look at the UK GW Website: Tau page..

after that.. have a look through the stickies on this board and the FAQ thread and read the codex :P

You could do what i did. I only got here a short while ago and was a little bewildered by the amount of info here. So i grabbed a hot chocolate, chucked on a movie in the background, and sat in for a night on catch-up. But that might not be for you.

I printed out a lot of the Know your Self. These were great start for me. So keep reading. I think once you get the Rules and Codex. Everything will make more sense.

Then you can start buy and painting as you will have a better idea as to what you want.
