Ive just started Tau and i bought the 50 box set off ebay for 42 in delivery, individualy that box set (if i priced it correctly) would cost you 80 in total 0.o so well worth buying that set, also look for a codex on ebay, picked mine up brand new 9 delivered

Assuming you mean the battleforce (Crisis Suit, Fire Warriors, Devilfish, Kroot, Stealth Team) - I'd go for that. It gives you everything you need to start a small legal army, plus it's great value too!

I wrote a short guide on starting up using the old 3rd edition battleforce (It contained Fire Warriors, Kroot, and 3 Crisis Suits) - but the new one is even better. I'm getting one soon, should arrive within the next two weeks, and I'll hopefully get around to writing an updated guide for it.

Anyhow, read the old guide here: http://www.tauonline.org/Article/2/WanttostartaTauarmy/

always go with battle forces or army sets, you save a decent amount of money on stuff you would end up buying anyway.

I got the battleforce, and it is very good to use as your base army and build around it
