Default Tau Xenos Guard

I plan on building a Tau Xenos Guard. They would most likely be like a command squad/honour guard. They'll be built for close quarters.

Anybody got any reccomendations, tips or whatever?

hmm.... are you using Sm or IG for your honour guard parts? just curious ???

If it is SM, then i'll suggest that you change their helmets first or maybe use the beak helmet instead of the normal ones. then the shoulder plates could be replaced by tau armour. or the tau armour can be used as a knee guard. and the bolter have to go. Replace it with an axe(Chainaxe is a good option) or big hammer or power claws/fist and the tau sept symbol must be on the shoulder plates.

For Ig,it is very simple just use the body and head of tau, and legs and arms of an IG unit. and the tau big shoulder armour could be placed at one arm or both if you fancy. their armament? Just use a honour blade or their chainswords.

hope that helps.

Ok this is confusing. Your making a what now?

Tau Xenos Guard... why would the Tau need an "alien" guard? They incorporate races into the empire remember? Also building for close quarters, is it that hard to understand that aside from the Farsight Enclaves a little Tau just do not do close combat? The very idea of assaulty Tau messes up the theme. Im all for creative liscence but it would be like making shooty khorn berserkers.


So some clarifications here, what are you trying to do because just from the looks of it you dont have a very good idea of just who the Tau are...

I think he is making an imperial kill team to fight tau.

Try chain-swords. Lots of chain swords.

The idea is that I use space marines power weapons with tau pulse carbines and tau armour. ^-^

Yes with power weapons and stuff. Its Tau with SM power weapons and pulse rifles or carbines. I will add an honour blade or 2 if I can get my hands on one.
