I've been away from the hobby for about 10 years, played a bit with the original Tau Codex. I move around a lot so it's hard to find a steady group to play with but I've seem to have found one here in turkey.
I plan on doing a Farsight Enclave army with a Vior'la Sept detachment. I also plan on doing things a little differently and having 'allied' races as stand ins for my fire warriors. Here is my plan so far:Farsight EnclaveHQ-Farsight 165ptsHQ-O'Vesa 305ptsElites-XV104 Riptide 255pts

There's no plan with this army, I play for fun win or lose I have a good time. I like the larger suits and even have a 5 riptide army list worked out that a friend says he'll let me try for laughs. Currenty eBay bidding or waiting for items to come in, right now I only have the Ethereal, Kroot, and Lizardmen(Fire Warrior stand-ins). For some substance, the base coated models and other items I am working on too.
Warpsmith and hacked/mutated Fallen Angel
Warpsmith got a 'wash'
Some Warptalons and the Chosen from Dark Vengance(I don't not like how they 'snap' together it's very odd placements)
Ethereal, SHaper and Kroot..............and what's that?
I'm a BFG Collector as well...saving a fleet member at a time off of eBay
Not painted, but base coated
Lizardmen and some scenery(Making a Tau Outpost with Railgun Turrets)
Just in the mail...some BATTLESHIPS!!!!!!!!!!!
Imperial Retribution Class Battleship(I have had easier jigsaw puzzles just FYI)
And a random Apoc game from here(I'm spectating)
Well that's all for now as I put together more, basecoat, and hopefully paint soon any critiques are welcome. Thoughts on my list are welcome too. Love Tau and especially ATT and glad to be back among the community!
