Tau, except I'd want a Stealthsuit instead of a Crisis Suit.

a kroot or a human would not lead a ten-cadre, or even a one-cadre. tau shas'os are the 5-star generals, their warmasters. shas'els are the one star generals. members of other races will command their own elements of a tau force, but they will be subservient to the overall tau command, and the shas'ar'tol.

non tau will not lead tau armies in other words.

Tau, and I agree with BB over there, I would like to be a stealth, too. *Crisis are cool, but man I love sneakin' up on people. *

PS. *Dont look behind you. *

I always think that a tau is perfect, but it is good to have a change if you know what I mean.....

I can see kroot being in command if the shaper was respected, and the commander was off doing other things (or dead). Just lie anghor prok. Oh, he is a great special character. him and 20 kroot need but recieve a charge in woods and they kill alot of marines combined with shooting. very fun for 215 points.

I can imagine a tribal-themed suit if a kroot is piloting a Crisis.

Like a small chip of the (big) old block: Examine their starships.

Okay, that's not a helpful description is it?

'Baroque', coppered, brassed, 'dirty' or at least heavily industrialised in a borderline steam-punk manner(not actual steampunk though as that'd be a bit silly). Big, bristling with guns. Actually, perhaps not even a tank, perhaps something more...War of the Worlds-esque.

Okay, this: Cool! ;D 8) O0
