"we salute the rank , not the man" will be a common scenario for you
and I don't laugh at your dream , met many with the same goals
also as someone who worked at SFTC helping out with the Commando and SASR candidacy program , i say you'll need ALOT of luck , no matter what Rank you are , you're going to be treated like dirt , Officer rank or Soldier Rank , I'm not trying to put you off but you need to know the reality of it all , I wanted to get into T.A.G East when I joined , after SFTC , literally said "fxck it"
ARA Engineering , however worked with SFTC for awhile instead , i heavily advise you only join service if you REALLY REALLY want to do it, enjoy limited freedom and want to sign your life away , its not a glorious career
I got out cause military service and I got kinda ticked off with Forgeworlds customer service , also I bought all my models from Maelstrom UK as Australian prices are almost 150% of UK and US prices , however Maelstrom won't ship outside Europe anymore cause of said region restrictions , tips? you a patient hunter or out for the hunt?
- Fish Of Fury hard.. Taus Firewarriors have best basic rifle out of every army , only that they can't aim properly cause they don't have Noses , think of it as shoving a Stuka Halftrack right infront of an enemy platoon/squad and having a bunch of Waffen SS hide behind it firing STG44s against a platoom not knowing wtf to shoot cause theres a Stuka/Devilfish in the way , enemy will have to take a leadership test to shoot past that Devilfish , if you're within 12inches then the double shoot rule applies but not to them
- since Tau infantry don't have heavy weapons , CRISIS SUITS ARE A MUST , Fusion blasters if you think theyre going to get in close range , Plasma Rifles for the heavier units to take out(Tanks etc) , ( best you get rare earth magnets so you can customize your crisis suits for any situation )
- DO NOT take Pathfinders IF you have a small army , theyre not worth the points and the extra devilfish , Sniper Drones are good for picking off people you don't like , don't bother with Pathfinders equipped Rail Rifles cause their objective is the whole Markerlight thing
- Stupid Tip which is a hit and miss to victory , Sacrafice an Ethereal , every Tau will go into a frenzyy getting re-rolls
other than that I hate/discrimnate against Kroot and Vespid units(also Tau units bearing skin) , however I will take Imperial Guard auxillaries instead
dont play anymore but long time ago had Tau aswell and Slaanesh Chaos for Fantasy , just like the paints for other uses , don't mind giving it to you for a small price or even free , get rid of my clutter
