yes i belive it is a very good deal to start a tau force it gives you a hq and 2 troops the basics you need to make a 500pts starter. There is also the megaforce which is a good starter force to.
hope i helped

I would try to get the megaforce first, then a battleforce, but of course it depends on how much you have. Of course you could always try a discount site. Saying that, I've just looked at it again, an it certainly has a lot in it!

I'm planning to get a load of Tau stuff (read:sit in a half made state for over a year) around Christmas, unless the green swarm takes me :p
It is quite scary that I've already spent well over 150 in my head...

I agree with Some Guy, if you can afford it (or save up and then get it), get the Megaforce 1st, then boost it with a Battleforce.

Alternatively save 200 and get the Hunter Cadre Apocalypse set

I picked 2 of them up off ebay for 75 dollars each,Great way to start tau my only knock is I'd much rather have a 2nd unit of firewarriors now I just wish it came with 2 units of fire warriors so I could pick another one up but I don't want anymore kroot.

Indeed. Kroot are pretty balls :P

If you're an army that sucks at melee make it shootier! If you're finding you need speed bumps, then get some Gue'vasa. They do it better than Kroot.

Absolutely it is a great deal! In the USA, the price of the items in the Tau Battleforce if you purchased them separately would be $55 higher than the $90 cost of the Battleforce. If you want even just two of the sets that come in the Battleforce, it's better to buy the Battleforce for all the additional product it contains.
