Just picked up the new 8th edition information, last played on 6th edition and only 3 games. I would really like to get back into it now that my brother-in-law is back from Virginia.
I really liked the style of the Tau models and had a desire to build and paint/customize the units. I also had a lot of fun playing the first game, and the ones after.
