    Fluff - Tau Language, and Cadre Name Help

    Though I play Tau exclusively, I am not hyper interested in them to the point of memorizing the codexes and other errata scattered about, thus I cannot claim to be a subject matter expert like many of you.

    That said I am finalizing a cadre and need to gt a good name for it.

    The cadre I am fielding is an aggressive Mont'ka focused assault army. When I say Assault I do not mean the 'assault' phase, I mean a push army or a cadre devoted to hitting hard and fast.

    Also the fluff behind it is less gleaming and 'Greater Good' focused as normal cadres, and more a concept of the behind the scenes politics of the Aun caste's members. Basically I made a Aun's personal cadre that functions as a black ops unit. Almost old russian KGB or Spetznaz style. I was trying to think up a name that would realize this feel. What was the 'dark times' or whatever in Tau history called? It translated to 'the terror' or something, but I cannot find it any longer.

    Help from the fluff gurus would be appreciated.

    Mont'au: The Terror

    Nan'T Tau'Va: Blade of the Greater Good
    M'Yen Kauyon: Unforeseen Patient Hunter
    Nan'T Y'He: Blade of Death/Destiny
    Kais Kauyon: Skillful Patient Hunter

    There's a couple, since it's late my mind is blanking on me so here's the web site I used so you can try your luck at it.

    Love the idea of a sort of KGB / TSS (tau secret service) idea. sounds like a lot of painting options. maybe give the XV8 commander a russian hat, like the ones with the little floppy ears. When you have completed it let us know, and start a thread with it!

    Well I forgot about this thread entirely.

    The army is complete and fights reletively well. My lack of heavy weapons is a problem sometimes, but overall it does it's job.

    I have three 'Tau' armies of 2000 pts. However only one is actually Tau. This army I was trying to name is a counts-as Blood Angels list using Tau conversions. I also have a counts-as Tyranid army using Tau conversions.

    All three of the armies mesh with each other fluff wise, and I wanted a good name for this one specifically. Unfortunately I do not have a camera which would be able to get any detail whatso-ever on mini's else I would post some.
