Default Just started and would like some suggestions!!!

I just started a Tau army, and by started that means I have a squad of Fire Warriors and a Devilfish APC.

However, my roommate has 2 squads of Fire Warriors, a Crisis Commander, and a Hammerhead that he is just willing to give to me.

So my question is: What other units would I need to get? I am thinking around 1500 points (in the long run, of course) and mechanized Cadre of some sort. Possible FoF with HH backup? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and thank you for your help.

well It seems you have a great start at a mechanized army. Possibly you could get another pair of devilfish's for your other 2 squad's of fire warriors.

Hoped this helped.

He is right. You should also get some pirahnas with fusion blasters, and some crisis bodyguards for your commander.
I dunno if you want aliens, but Vespid work well with mech Tau, and p00n Space Marines.
If you want a sky ray you should get some pathfinders, so markerlights can guide Smart Missiles.

Better to not have a bodyguard on a commander to keep its IC status.
But Elite Crisis is a very good choice to add.

Do you want to be mobile or huge lines of guns? Most people use mobile but the gunlines can work well (mech and static tau)
For mobile make sure every squad of fire warriors has a devilfish and that everything (with the exception of infiltrating kroot) can move 12"+ a turn.

For static things like broadsides and sniper drones work well.
You can make hybrid armies to combine all of them.

Well that looks like a good start, I'd just advice you to go for whatever appeals to you! For me that would be more Crisis Suits, Stealth Suits, Piranhas, and more tanks, in short (Devilishes for the Fire Warriors, and another Hammerhead).

You'll need a few more crisis suits at least, just so you can take those special weapons that you won't find anywhere else in the Tau Army List (such as missile pods, plasma rifles).
