Re: The [i]T'auk'cka'era[/i]. This injustice makes you ashamed to be British.

Well that is amusing and surprising. And ridiculous. Utterly.

Re: Assault on Commoragh

This is interesting. I have the converse idea on populations. The DE, living in Commorragh, may well be incredibly populace. They are, of course, the Eldar that routinely engage in evrything that...

Re: Your play style in few words

I was Heavy Metal & Kroots 'n' Suits.

That is:

- Typically two (rail) hammerheads and a Skyray is my preferred force (even if the 3 Railhead is...

Re: Tau in 'Xenology' and other fluff (SPOILERS)

Dear original poster,

The so called 'Dark Crop' of the C'tan is more likely to be the Pariah Gene that was inserted into humanity, would it not? Now, I'm a big fan of everyone being...

Re: WH40K Universe Questions

Re: WH40K Universe Questions

Not as such, no. Almost everything in the warp appears to be of chaotic root. There'll be 'warp aliens' and things, we know them: Enslavers and the like, but the truly big things in the warp stem...

Re: Fluff-wise, are Chaos Tau possible?

Reasons for Chaos Tau: Tau trapped at 'weaker' points in the Damocles Gulf.

The Farsight Enclaves are along the frontier, yes? No Tau worlds inside the Gulf, yes? Star of Damocles implies that the...

Re: Drone: Fire Warrior: Auxilliary ratio

Re: Opponents hating Tau

To be honest, a couple of Wargamer's points make some sense to me.

On the otherhand, though, they seem...unworkable.

I'd suggest: Cap the range on JSJ units, basically to ensure they must be...

Re: Freedoms in the Tau Empire

I think I loosely agree with you Calaban, though with the caveats and points Calmsword raises in there too.



I would add that faith isn't the only thing that affects the warp. The very mind...

Humans didn't exist when the Nightbringer was doing his "FEAR OF DEATH I AM DEATH FEAR ME RAAAH! routine either. Odd, huh?

Re: Freedoms in the Tau Empire

I'd not say that the differences you distinguish are the point. I'd posit: A Tau has faith in the Tau'va. They rely upon it. They meditate upon it. It takes up the position that faith'd hold if they...
