Default Tau Cavalry

I love the Tau fire warrior mini.
I also love the Lizardmen Cold One model (Lustria Edition)
So I put them together.

No pics as they are not finished, and my cam is busted.

But here is my Question

Would the Tau, on a world populated by lethal predators and defened by Imperials, ride some fo the those predators?

Just imagine...Tau Rough riders...mmmmmmmmmmmm...I love the way it looks!

stick some cool looking armor on it... maybe do some bionic works on them if you've got the moding skillz.... then give the rider alot of armor too... mount the whole deal on a VERY large base.... with enough space for two pulse carbine wielding skinks....

give the firewarrior a hand burst cannon or fusion blaster...

you know where i'm taking this right?

I like the look of this already, the lizards, are somwhat cooler than the kroot, but maybe just maybe, you could put the pices together, and swap wepons, paint some blood around the mouths, and take any random suggestions!

But would the totally tech Tau ride a massive lizard? Or is that to Catachan? Bare armed gun-ho tau!

Personally I think that the Tau might not mount up as cavalry under normal circumstances, but under special ones (such as in the Enclaves) they certainly might. Also, alien auxilia might well still ride on horseback (or rather, lizardback).

try a tau with a pulse carbine and an honour blade ;D
or even better a tau with two carbines (not twin linked) and a targeting array (it could happen)

I'm sure the inhabitants of D'yanoi certainly would given that they have regressed back to a more rustic lifestyle and simpler level of technology.

Give them all burst cannons, field them as stealth. The lizards kick up such dirt that its hard to get a clear shot unless you're close...

Dunno it'd look cool, but I feel like Roughriders (who can take lizard mounts, Chapter Approved), and kroot merc cavalry have the cold one front covered...
