Default Lurker turned tau: my first game

Hello All, I have been lurking around the pages here for a while now. I played 40k a long time ago, i guess 7 years or so, and have just got back in the game. I started with some marines and daemonhunters, nothing much just some termies and a couple tac squads that i used for proxies, but didn't like how they played. I decided that i wanted to get a different army and i came upon this website. I was impressed with all the activity on the board and the help that people got when they needed answers. Strategies and hints abound on this site and i decided to go with the tau. I bought the battleforce, a HH and traded the mcragge tyranids for an assembled/primed broadside. Yesterday was the first time i got play them, and i was really impressed. With the help of the hints here and posts, i knew how to play the army pretty well and was impressed on how good i did, even though my FW turned tail and ran off the board the first turn! :P
anyway, i just want to thank everyone that contributes here, i couldn't have done it without ya!

Thanks

That's a good thing . I think if you enjoy tactics you will be very pleased with playing tau. There are so many options available to them it takes a long time to "get bored" (this has happened to me quite a lot in the past, but not with tau). And what sort of army are you planning on playing (pts cost and style)?

Well right now, I'm right around 850 points with the army as it is. I want to get to 2000 so i can play in the local tournaments and such. I think I'm going to be playing mech tau, i fell in love with my hammer head last night (hmm sounds wrong :P) I figure ill get at least 2 more HH, 2 devilfish, nother set of 12 FW for fish, some stealths, maybe some pathfinders and crisis suits. I have my army all painted up white/black with red highlights. The guys at the store that i went to yesterday called it the clone army and suggested i make my HQ crisis suit black with red body guards ala Starwars/Vader/imperial guard

Lol . Black and white=clone troopers ahah. Anyways, you seem to have a very good idea of what to get to create a nice army; definitely get those 2 more hammerheads, and read the endless topics on how to use them. Also get at least 3 devilfish, you will need two for the fish of fury tactic, and one more for the pathfinders that you will no doubt eventually take. Sorry if I just repeated your plan . I have the nasty habit of posting from the original versus the latest.

That would look pretty cool actually. Clone Troopers with Trandoshan shock troops!
