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.
