I have been thinking about starting a secondary 40k army for a while now. But I can never seem to decide on which one...
Since I have only ever played Tau I should probably go for something with decent melee capabilties, just to spice things up.
This has got me thinking however. Can playing a completely different army help me improve my Tau game?
Of course, the more games you play with an army, the better you get at that army (hopefully). But can only playing one army make your strategic thinking a bit narrow? Could playing another army with a completely different playstyle perhaps help you develop some wacky "outside the box" tactics for Tau?
I don't know, since I have yet to start and play a secondary army. But I hope this is the case.
With that said. What other armies do you guys play in 8th? Have you learned something from them that you could apply to your Tau games?

So i went for gsc first as i wanted some reasonable shooting to go with my melèe....i needed the comfort and familiarity of atleast 1 phase, my nids are the opposite of my tau, in 2k list i have 30 dev gaunts, 4deathspitters 4 venom cannons and 2 tfex for shooting....the other 120+ models are purely cc oriented,.
Going that deep into a totally different playstyle has definitely developed my strategies and deployment styles
