What to buy next.

Post#1 » Jul 17 2017 12:13

So I recently bought a Tau getting started set. A devil fish, a piranah, and a pathfinder team.

In the getting started set i got 3 crises suits. 10 fire warriors And some drones and an ethereal.

The fires warrios melted in a paint stripping disaster.

So I will be buying another getting started with tau set.

But I was thinking about what to buy next. 2 hammer heads.

Or some broadsides? Or the tidewall and more 2 more boxes of fire warriors.

You already covered all your basic needs with the SC box and the Pathfinder box. Next would be a Commander and after that it really only depends on what kind of list you want to play (big suits, infantry based gunline, mobile infantry, tanks. Your call).

Looks like you have a good start then! Fire Warriors work best in large buffed-up gunlines, or as cheap objective holders. Unless you want a big gunline, don't buy too many. Commanders are by far the best unit in our Index currently, and Longstrike is fantastic too. Given what you currently have, here's a good buy list:

1-2 Commanders
1 Longstrike
2 Hammerhead Gunships (1 for Longstrike)
10 Breachers (to go in the Devilfish you already have)
3-6 Stealthsuits

Ghostkeels look awesome and love the fluff but rules-wise they are far from being awesome this edition imo.
