comment 7 wonders Babel and Armada
My FLGS got Babel in on Wednesday... So assuming there isn't a run on the the first printing, you should be able to get your hands on a copy fairly easily now.

comment Which has to be declared first: Marklights or Jink?
I'd say that choosing a gun is definitely part of shooting at a target. You can't shoot at something without picking which gun you are going to shoot (when you have multiple options) therefore picking is part of shooting. So you must spend markerlights before you pick (since you have to spend them before you shoot).

comment Which battleforce should I buy as a newbie player?
Maybe go Necron then? Or IG, they're probably the shootiest of the remaining choices.

I don't think it's near that bad. Tau player says "This unit will shoot at that unit using X markerlights to Y." If cover is being ignored Jink is irrelevant. If it's not then the defender's last chance to Jink is after the first weapon to fire is chosen but before the to hit roll dice are rolled.

comment Modernising a 90s Warhammer 40K Army
It's especially useful once you have a large army and lots of options to choose from. The pro version is IMO well worth it, as you can save favorite units (I almost always take the same Deamon Princess, and it's really nice to be able to add her with a single click, for example.) That said the free version is still a huge time saver on the list construction front.

Not needed, but certainly useful, would be Battlescribe. This could give you an idea of how many points of models you have, and to a lesser extent, what you will need/want to buy.

comment Is it always better to play a knight immediately?
It's worth noting, that since TIES for largest army go to the person who acquires it first, playing your Third Knight ASAP can be advantageous (or 4th if someone else already has Largest Army w/ 3 Knights).

Clarifying I do not care about older editions rulings.

It sounds to me like you are still using 6th edition Jink rules. Jink is no longer automatic.
