Default Army Themes...

Hey

I'm looking for a suitable army theme for my army. I've only really thought about the colours and the base. The colour is white armour,green lenses and a red zig-zag fire pattern on parts of the armour. The bases will be beach bases,so thats gonna be white sand and deep blue sea with some long grass since I love the idea of a couple of battlesuits flying along the water opening fire upon the enemy. I'm not sure what fluff to use eeither,I could use a great deal of help on that part.

Thanks alot.

How about a "surfer themed" army?

..with the soon-to-be-dreaded battlecry "She sells sea shells by the shore"
I could pay cash to see a fight like that!

Fluffwise you could use a waterworld with almost only archipelagos as the armys home.
Using house rules, you could claim re-roll for difficult terrain (which should be what you treat rivers as)..

I do like the suggestion for a water world. Perhaps a Sept of Tau that specialises in sea landing/coastal attacks may be on the menu?

Nice ideas

A full force of tau coming in from the sea would be the last thing anyone would expect...

The list is going to be a fast list "air cavrely" everything is goign to have a transport or a speacial rule to get close to the enemy.

Thats a good one! I'll have to think about it. If that were the case then i could modify some of the models a bit to show that they've put the re search to use.
