Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've been reading through my codex when I realized, why aren't there any units from the Fio and Por castes? They play such an important role in the tau society, yet their models are absent from even forgeworld? Does anyone know why this might be? :blink: :blink: :blink:
because they arent made to ever be in combat. they are bred to be engineers and such, one would proabably not see battle as it's just not what he should do for the greater good.

Forge world does have air-caste members.
NO SH*T YOU MOTHER F*CKING SPAMMER!!!! DID HE SAY THEY WEREN'T THERE, NO!!! IM SURE HE KNEW ALREADY!!!!!
Dude, its aight. Anyway, in Aun'Shi's story, it said that the Fio caste members were preparing for battle, wouldn't that hint to some kind of fighting ability? And the Por caste, because they operate in the background, could they not operate as some kind of fast attack unit, since the tau are lacking in that department...
Last stand. They didn't like it, as it is agaist Tau doctrine, but they had to defend themselves until rescued.Dude, its aight. Anyway, in Aun'Shi's story, it said that the Fio caste members were preparing for battle, wouldn't that hint to some kind of fighting ability?
So yeah, 40K is a tabletop battle game, emphasis on battle. The Fio and Por have little to do with anything, and accordingly have no model in 40K. Convert your own, if you really want one.
Slackerhauk...your post was no less spam than his...
yes...but I don't spam on almost every topic like he does. thanks. If he would follow the rules in the first place I wouldn't bitch him out....
What do the worlds that develop mostly Fio and Por caste do would they not be easier targets, yet Dal'yth is one the most vunerable planets and it's one with damn traders...makes no damn sense so i would think that on planets like that some Por caste would see battle wether they wish to or not.....=/
Exactly, thats what I was thinking. I mean at least they should make a special character for each caste. Theres one for the Shas and Aun castes, why not one for the Kor, Fio and Por castes? There are lots of easy ideas to expand on with special characters in these castes as well.
Because the Aun lead, and the Shas fight. Fio, Kor and Fio don't fight. Is it really that hard to grip? Kor have ForgeWorld models because they are the closest thing to support troops. They don't have rules, as far as I know.
As I said before, if you want models, use the illustrations in the codex as a base for CONVERTING SOME. On a Tau forum, there's a guy building a Fio Crisis suit, for tree logging. I'll try find a pic and edit this post to put it in, if you want ideas.
