H: Tau W: Grey Knights

Post by lordeatsalot on Thu Jun 17, 2010 9:28 pm

Hi all, I am trying to ditch my aging infantry Tau army, for a smaller, easier to transport, infantry Grey Knight army.

I have

60 Tau w/ Pulse Rifles
12 Tau w/ Pulse Carbines
4 Tau Stealth Suits w/ Burst Cannons (one missing backpack)
1 XV88 Battlesuit (no longer available)
1 Hammerhead w/ Rail Gun
1 Devilfish (no longer available)
5 Pathfinders w/ Pulse Carbines
2 Pathfinders w/ Rail Rifles

I want

21 PAGK
6 PAGK w/ Incinerators
3 Justicars
3 Terminators
1 Terminator w/ Incinerator
1 Brother Captain


I would prefer a block trade, but I will not refuse any reasonable offers.

I'm sorry, I won't get rid of my grey knights for xenos scum.
No, tau are a nice looking army but if I'd play them, I'd max out on battlesuits because it would look awesome.

max crisis suits is one of the strongest ways to play tau, its often considered ard boyz style. I play infantry heavy and it's alot of fun, plus can be extremely good if you keep mobility with devilfish. max broadsides (xv88) are just awesome against everything. definitely cheese

commenting as a tau player:

He has a good mix of models in there, totalling around 1400 points, more or less depending on wargear. most good tau lists will include pathfinders, multiple devilfish, a fair amount of fire warriors, at least one hammerhead, and some broadsides (xv88). Stealth suits are not an "always take" like the rest, but i love them and many players play them quite often, they are definitely on the good side, but they'd be left out of most 'ard boyz style lists.

To play 1500 tau all you'd technically need to buy is an HQ, usually one crisis suit, though you could instead buy an ethreal.

to hit a very competitive 1500-1750 you'd only need to add a few crisis suits and perhaps a broadside or two. though i'd add another devilfish as well.

Thanks for the advice, but the point is I want to STOP playing Tau, and pick up Grey Knights. On that note, does anyone want to trade?

It's gonna be hard for sell your Tau on this site bud, I'm sorry. Alot of us are pretty hardcore Grey Knight players, so it'll be a bit hard to pull any GK's from our greedy hands lol.

Your best bet to sell the Tau would be to throw em up on Ebay, or ask your local shop if they know anyone that's in the market for a new army. If you can price em' cheap enough some newer players may just want to buy the army so they can be nearly done in a single go.


Best of luck with selling your Tau, and it's great to hear that there's another Grey Knight player joining up!

Lord, i wasn't giving YOU the advice, i was telling anyone who is looking at the models and doesn't know alot about tau what the models are like and what would be needed (which is why i used "he" instead of "you"). Since they already know GK, then can make a more informed trade decision, and maybe be more interested because of the fact only very few additions are needed and the model quality is high.

I refuse to give up my 21+PAGK at more than $10 a model for Plastic Xeno Scum. Especially when you can no longer buy them.

Try to less hostile mr Border, mr eatsalot just want to trade.

If you are not going to be more constructive in your post you can skip to post.

As for me, i also refuse to give up my grey knights, but that's becouse of personal reasons, and it feels stupid to sell models you've spent lots of hours painting and modelling, and gaming with.
Don't worry mr eatsalot,you will be able to get some GK's from somewhere, just not from me. Razz

I think there is a few boxes of GK and DH over here too, but unless he lives near scandinavia, i guess he's out of luck.

How is it allways that new things find theyr way slower into Scandinavia than usual?Though in this case its better that way,for the loyalist dogs who actually play with Daemonhunters,while it means more GKs knocking on my battle barges door

Well Grimhack that is the most usual method,but for the sake of variety,we also have services for those that want to blow it up with a lascannon or something bigger,go through with power fists(popular among SM),have your tanks ran through it(popular with normal IG) or other more conventional methods.
