I am planning on starting a Tau army, but I enjoy comming up with armys that reflect an aspect of the background of the army rather that a generic list. For example my SM salamada army is based around Tech marines. Even the dreadnought used to be a tech marine anh has an anvil in place of his CCW.
I was wondering is anyone had ideas for tau armys that are heavy on the Fluff. I like to stick with the rules but anything else goes.
Some deas I had for myself were a scout force (lots of pathfinders and steath suits) or an air mobile (everone mounted in devilfish) or a mecenary force (lots of tau and human malitia)
What do you think? How do you feel about fluff? Does it get in the way of army desigh or add to the experiance?
No I think fluff is very important and really makes better armies. i also think you put more work into an army you have devises a story about than just simple models. It gives them meaning and can make the game even more fun.

When I first started making my tau force I had just got done watching Black Hawk Down. I said hey it would be really cool to have every body mounted and to stay mobil. I use gun Drones alot they are my "little birds" then i have my crisis as my "Little bit bigger Little birds" its fun just pounceing on the enemy (deep strike).

That sounds very cool. I love the idea of all these devilfish sweeping over the horizon, digouging gun toting aliens
I was thinging of a border sept, close to human space that uses human axilla and kroot mercs to boalster its small force of fire wariors. I think that yould give them a cool feel.
what do you think?
