I am a long time Tau player, started when the faction was first released back in 2001. I shelved my marines, eventually sold them and focused entirely on my Tau. I still have that old first codex, wish I had my 3rd Edition Rulebook to go with it. I took a break from 40k that lasted the entirety of 6th, picked the hobby back up when 7th launched and am having fun with 8th. Tau were my first truly Fully Painted army. I had other armies in the 90s and early 00s but my Tau were the first faction I put my heart into when painting.
Have you reviewed the ATT Membership & Forum Rules? Yup
On a side note, I can only post to this forum. It seems my user level permissions are restricted in PHPBB. Could someone give that a look? Thanks
