What other models do you have in total for the Tau? And I assume you mean strictly for the Tau and Kroot?

My first recommendation, if you already have plenty of troops - is Stealthsuits. After that, more Kroot.
Depending on your play style of course.

Otherwise, I'll have more recommendations with reasons later if you can give me some hints as to what you have and where you'd like to go with your Tau.

If you only have FWs you need to buy a crisis suit to serve as a HQ - otherwise you can't even field a legal army. My suggestion would be a crisis suit, stealths, and a DF squad (the box deal with a DF & FWs). After that add a hammerhead.

I dont know how much a battleforce would cost but that saves you money and gets a lot of useful models you will eventually need, well worth a buy. That should leave about $10 left over (approx, i dunno pirces in dollars) so you could buy a blister or save up for a skimmer...to me that would be a very solid base.

-3 Crisis Battlesuits
-12 Kroot (would have to get somem ore of these but its a good start
-24 Fire Warriors
-12 Gun Drones

Although that is lacking a bit in key areas (vehicles!!) it is a good start to begin with that will save you precious money as well!

hope that helps!

Papercut:

Well, if 12 Firewarriors is all you have, your next purchases should reflect compulsory selections on the Force Organizational Chart. In that case, more Firewarriors (or Kroot if you prefer) and some sort of HQ (be it an Ethereal or Crisis Suit, though I'd recommend starting with the Crisis).

The battle force is indeed a good option for you to build up the basis for any Tau army you play. However, if you don't care for Crisis or Kroot, I would avoid it.

I would recommend (1) XV8 Crisis (1) Fire Warriors box - Then, expand from there with either vehicles or suits depending on your style.

It really comes down to what style play do you want to explore with the Tau? Static? Mech? Hybrid? If you're unsure, have a look at our Sample Army lists to get an idea of what models are more involved in each list for an example.

if you want more fire warriors and another crisis suit why not just get the battleforce, giving you 12 more fire warriors, 3 more suits, 12 kroot and some gundrones...not to mention saving you a lot of money?

Just a suggestion,

this isnt going to do much I'm afraid, I see lots of people with 36 or 48 FW when I help them with their lists, stop at 24

and a box of FW and a Crisis shouldnt be 100$US so grab a Fish aswell

then next on the shopping list for down the line a bit should be:

-another Fish
-a HH
-6 Stealths
-a second HH

and that should get you to 1000pts wih a nice solid and dependable army.
