Default A few questions on Fi'rios (3rd Sphere) and Tau Cadre Organization

Alright. My army is is about half done (half bought and assembled nothing painted yet, well afew Fire Warriors and all basecoats...) but I have hit a delielma.
My fluff is that my Cadre is part of the Va'O'Mont'yr Contingent. They are under the command of Commander Suncrusher, leader of 6 Cadres. This Cadre of mine is a mix of Septs. It has Sa'ces and Fio'Rios soldiers, as this cadre helped free Fio'rios from the Orks. Is this possible? Would the Tau mix soldiers from differnt Septs?

And what is Fio'Rios Sept Colour?

Hope I'm not being too bothersome.

I don't see why they wouldn't be able to mix...and I'm pretty sure that Fi'rios doesn't have a color scheme (yet).

tau dont have a generic colour scheme. like the guard, tau will wear a scheme to match the terrain they're fighting in. mine are mottled green and brown as they're fighting on a jungle continent.

septs will have sept markings, but honestly they're minor and not necessary. ceck the codex and if its not mentioned, make it up!

Really there are few schemes for the Tau that are set the only common and identified one being the standard T'au homeworld scheme. So just make up whatever you like.

As for the mixing of cadres yes it is done. Read Firewarrior. Its not the best of books but can give a lot of info on the Tau and one detail you get is that the Firewarriors Kais fights beside even in his own squad are from many septs. Forces get mingled quite often it would seem to replace cassualties and form the coalitions and forces assembled for a particular task force.

Before the lock comes down, I have to say that, since the troops were saved and now are fighting with their saviours, maybe they would use their armor too. Just a possibility.
