for those who dont know me, and most wont i just joined, im not the best painter, or the best strategist (havent won a battle since the new codex came out, but only had 3, one which was a mix of 3 armies toghther )
but i do love the narrative elemnt of the game, so using the great "count as" rule, where you can make anything and say it "count's as" something else.
for example, a ninja tau could be counted as kroot (saw that in white dwarf 319 i think)
so i developed a backdrop story for my tau army.
I have wriiten a story to it so just post if you would like it, its a short novel which i will send it to the black libray when the competition comes.
basically, my army failed to defend a previous Aun'Va and as such his life was taken. They were not punished per sei but assuminjg fire warriors get to retire, these guys lost that right, the only way to redeem thmesleves to die for the greater good.
I hate Kroot. I hate Vespids. I hate the farsight aswell. But after looking at the rules (disapointed to see that 1+ bonus to WS disapear) i decided to have him in my army, but as Arwan (leader of the blood tau) instead of commander Farsight (the battle were Aun'Va died was against orks)
and thats pretty much it. They are not allowed to recruit any more fire warriors, so thats how the get there 0-1 limit, and cause the bugs are not fully part of the tau, they were not punished.
anyway i posted this to let you all know a bit about me and my army, and to let you all know that you are welcome to embrace this idea.
there paint style is pretty much normal, but the lines and shoulder pads are blood red.
www.tauonline.com is an ok site, and there is a guy there (click general in the tau bar) who will say that tau blood is blue. to him i say i dont care, ikts red and its staying red.
ok, so thanks for reading this (if you did) and let me know if you want a copy of the full story and any ideas you have.
P.S still havent come up with an idea for why/how he got his Dawn Blade...
links broken, mind fixin it so i may take a look
