Default things to write on the side of suites

got any ideas as to what, or if, tau would write little slogans on the side of their suits or weapons?
beyone the XV88 and so on i've got
"we shall end you"
"change is the one constant"
"you cannot hope to stand against this"
"believe in the tau'va"
"we shall strike you down"

untau? i dunno- just a thought

On the sides of my tanks I write stuff. On the devilfish I have: "Kovash Tauva" and "workhorse of the Tauva." On my Hammerheads I have: "Kovasth Tauva" again and "Hammer of the Tauva." I was contemplating putting "eat this." on the railgun but... havent gotten around to it yet. My gold got too thin... blast need to get some more. My Shas'O has Kovash Tauva and his name written on his back.

I simply took small pieces of balsa wood and snapped them in half to create a fine but rigid point since my brushes were too light, I then used that to etch on the sides of the tanks. got the gold on nice and thick and clear.

Despite the Tau being againest individualism, perhaps they are still able to personalize their wargear and weaponry. Although they may not exactly have litanies likes Smurfs, maybe they would still have slogans or personal catch phrases that make them stand apart. Since i like to add hilarity to the matter, I'd probably write something like:
"Tau do it better" or "Greater Good or Bust"
Just some of my ideas, hope this helps.

"I've got your greater good right here."
"How do ya like them submunitions?"

Don't think its very Tau... but fun.

"servant of the aun" might work. I would also be all for "die SMurf baby".

As far as the original post goes, I'm a big fan of "Change is the Only Constant". Very Tau-ish.

My friends brother wrote naughty words in Tau. Hilarious - the mind of a 14 year old is single-minded in it's approach to the world.

Don't be ageist! I'm 14!

Anyway, back to topic now.

What to the lines on the transfer sheet say? I started translating them once but never got around to finishing it. The phrases you want might be already on the sheet. Not that it matters though, I just slap Tau text on wherever it looks good. (Who would take the time to sit down and translate the text on an opponents model?)

"Peace is Our Profession"--Not only hilariously paradoxical, but also the actual slogan of the US Strategic Air Force during the height of the Cold War.

I dunno, i think ANY slogan would work on the side of a tank.

If i recall from WoII the russian infantry and cavalary (tanks) also were strictly uniform and guided to one purpose..... yet they all had inspiring slogans written over their tanks to increase moral.

So i wouldn't be surprised if a HH whould have "Death to the Gue'va" (i don't know if i spelled that right) written on its side in a campaign against the Imperium
