I'd recommend buying and reading the codex first. In fact, do that before you buy any of the models. The codex will give you a feel for the army, how they look, how they fight, their strenghts and weaknesses, ect. Atfer that, I would look to .mace's "Starting a Tau Empires Army- Straight out of the box" thread.

Yep, as mentioned in my thread - you'll definitely need the Codex. And by definitely, I mean if you don't have it, you shouldn't be playing it or trying to make lists with it. I cannot stress how critical it is to have the Codex in order to play...

After that, its good if you have access to the rulebook, or even own it yourself. Shouldn't be an issue if you already have an army (Tyranids? according to your profile).

Units you'll need:
- 1+ Crisis Suit for the Commander:
- 1+ Fire Warrior Team

Why these? Because they're compulsory unit choices, as stated in their army list entries in the codex (the '1+' prefix). I would heavily recommend getting the Battleforce though, as it includes both these units and much more! You can easily get a 500-600 point army out of it, which is what my 'Starting a Tau Empires Army' thread revolves around (there's an army list included in there).
