Default Battle Rage!?

Just having an idle read through the tau codex and I came across an interesting paragraph at the end of page 14 regarding the death of am Ethereal. It seams that if one is killed then firewarriors a likely to advance towards the enemy while "pouring an unceasing volume of of fire into the enemy".

So I know about the cost of failure when an ethereal dies but how does the battle rage fit into the moral check, 1-3 withdraw 4-6 advance?

Thoughts?

i think it would be interesting depending on what would happen exactly if the ethreal was killed but i think it would amke the ethreal more powerful and make people think twice about killing him

i've always thought there should be a similar rule to that. maybe the FWs v\could rapid fire to 18 or something (while advancing)

Actually, the section you're refering to says that "Such an attack will only be halted by the expenditure of all ammunition"... Which shows that it isn't "useless" firing, per say, just that they shoot at everything... So it'd require upping the shots they can take (as suggested a Rapid Fire range of 18" or so) AS well as dropping their BS a point, to show that their shooting blindly in a rage... Or something along those lines...

I think this would be a great feature of a character ethereal, after all it does say an "especially beloved ethereal."
Make it have "failed leadership tests fall back, successful ones charge in a maddened rage"(whatever a tau's maddened rage might be)

sounds good, except that would split up the tau army and it might be even worse than with a normal etherial. but maybe i'm just parinoid
