    Tau Gang?

    Hiya!

    Thinking of staring Necromunda with some friends that play 40k. As usual I don't like taking all the same-old-same-old gangs so I was thinking of building a Tau gang. I'd use one of the rule sets for an existing gang, but with Tau models converted to fit. I have a few different ideas so I thought I would get some feedback from you lot as to what you think:

    Tau Stealth Gang (Delaque)

    Gang Leader - Pathfinder Shas-Ui
    Gangers - Pathfinders
    Juves - Gun drones
    Heavies - XV15 Stealth Armour

    Tau Kroot Gang (Cawdor, or maybe Escher)

    Gang Leader - Vespid Sting Wing
    Gangers - Kroot Squad
    Juves - Kroot squad converted with pistols
    Heavies - Krootox

    Tau Combined Gang (Van-Sar)

    Gang Leader - Tau Ethereal
    Gangers - Firewarriors
    Juves - Kroot Squad
    Heavies - Krootox

    So thats the way I am leaning at the moment, but I am not sure if I want to lean towards kroot, tau, or combined. I'm also not sure if stuff like the Krootox will be way too large for necromunda, or if the scale isn't such a problem? A kroot gang would probably fit in better with the story of necromunda, as they could be outcasts, but a proper squad of pathfinders doesn't really fit into the undercity backstory!

    Anyone got any good suggestions?

    I thnk that your choices for the all tau gang would make the most sense, the krootoxes are way out of scale and tau are very human like.

    The juves = gundrones par i'm not so sure about though, maybe they could be kroot.

    I would have to disagree, if you could switch out the krootox for a stealthsuit I think the combined gang would work the best (Although I do love Delaque)
    Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!

    Perhaps a Delaque gang with the following might work well?

    Gang Leader - Ethereal
    Gangers - Pathfinders
    Juves - Kroot
    Heavy - Stealth Suit

    Gives a nice mix of models, easy to tell what is supposed to be what, and won't look too out of place. I'll need to convert the quite a bit of stuff but thats half the fun!
