Default Corruption

Sorry if this is a gip off of chaos, or repeated, but I think it would be cool if there was a darker version of the tau, some that didn't follow through with the greater good, and are more trained in close combat, not long range. They would have more of a black armor scheme, and would be called the corrupted ones. Opinions?

Closest I can think of is the Farsight Enclaves, although they have a bright red color scheme.

yea, this topic has already been discussed, but anyway, there was also something about the tau not being able to be corrupt under the guidance of an etheral?? and tau are not not the type for close combat :P he he, but its a cool idea

Chaos would be Chaos even in bright pink thongs... oh, we have those already.

Chaos is determined by beliefs, goals and outlook, not by the colour of their armour, or the number of spikes.

Tell that to the games workshop art team.... No, I will not put a "silly tongue" smiley after that, I was being completely serious!

Seriously tho, evil tau would completely break the feel of the mainstream tau army. It would be a bit like rebellious tryranids.

Yeh, but the farsight enclave follow the greater good.

I agree, but that does make me think of how cool evil Tau in dark armour covered in spikes would look. That's not a bad idea...

Even covered in spikes they would still be crap in close combat, however.

Well, actually, if they dont practice long range at ALL, and only work on CC, then they might get good.* But then they'd have weapon ranges of about 18-24 inches, which... would be BAD.*
Corrupted firewarrior:
WS-4 BS-3 S-3 T-3 W-1 I-4/5 A-1/2 Ld-8 Sv-4+* Points-14
Weapon:* pulse carbine.
XV8 crisis battlesuit:
WS-4 BS-3 S-6 T-4 W-2 I-4/5 A-3 Ld-9 Sv-3+* Points-60 plus weapons
They would have every weapon except their missile pods.
Crisis Commander- WS-5 BS-5 S-6 T-4 W-4 I-5 A-5 Ld-10 Sv-3+* Points-105 plus weapons
All weapons except missile pods.

A little untauey, and they are quite better then regular, but are more expensive.

There is always close-quarters shooting (rapid firing Pulse Rifles, Burst Cannons, Pulse Carbines, Fusion Blasters, rapid-firing Plasma Rifles). I love close-range stuff. I like being in the fray but not being whacked on the head by a power sword.

Too true. What do you think Mech Tau can be used to do...

Anyway as for corrupted Tau, that breaks theme very badly in my oppinion. I like the Tau for their altruistic beliefs and their rather pure nature, kinda unstained by the morbid and depressive destruction of the other races. The Farsight enclaves still serve the greater good in most peoples oppinions Ive heard. Corrupted Tau... that would be difficult. The entire society is against it. The Farsight Enclaves are the clossest you get and the Tau hardly even talk about that. Peer pressure to the extreme. The Mont'au devil remember.

Though I have seen a few examples of this. There was a chaos Tau conversion done in the hobby area not to long ago, the "Darker Tau Diary" if I remember the threads name correctly. And Ive seen a kill team with a kinda corrupted theme. Some people do it, I just dont think its a good idea.

Plus Firewarriors are just bad in cc, accept it and stop trying to change it. Just shoot the enemy in the face and be done with it.
