I have never really liked Tau, and they never appealed to me.


Then 3 years ago we used them for the team tournament and I kind of found myself enjoying them. For the most part I play shooting armies, so the army would be a good fit with my play style.


In the past few days I have had a hankering to play them. When this feeling comes on, I make sure to lie down until it passes, but I am starting to get the urge. Maybe I will cross over to the darkside and embrace the greater good. Another thing that is drawing me to them like a moth to a flame is that everyone says that they can't win a tournament, and there is nothing I like better than a challenge.


On a side note, just what I need, anther army!


  1. Don't give in, resist the dark side!

    Actually, It would be very interesting to see what you could do with them....especially given the fact that they are considered sub-par. Plus, I am sure that your army list will interesting as always.

  2. I will see if I can borrow some of Yakface's Tau for the Slaughter in Space in a couple of weeks.

    I would have to paint some more models though to flesh it out.

  3. No, don't do it. Tau are a gateway to evil!

    Although it would be as Mags said interesting to see what you do with them.


  4. Tau may have some expensive stuff but with the right combination, you look at a very potent force and the perfect anti-IG/Mech army.

    coversaves? what coversaves?

  5. I hate to say it but I think Tau need a massive overhaul. On the flip side Allan if you lose another tournament with Tau you can just blame the army, not yourself which is convenient for you. So I say go for it.


  6. Don't worry, I am thinking about bringing my Space Wolves out of retirement so I will have no one to blame but myself.

  7. Late one night I too thought of starting a Tau army, but I don't have the money or the energy or space in the paint queue... I need to paint what I already own or sell some stuff perhaps.

  8. That is where I am at now.

    I looked at all of the models that I have and the armies that I already own and I don't have any time to finish them, so I really do not want to start a new army.
