Default A few messed up Ideas

After my game today, me and a friend got to talking, which lead to thinking.
A few of our thoughts were:
Tau Carnifex: Cybernetic Implants (think Vespid Helm) to mimic the Hive Mind...FOR THA TAU'VA

Interrigators: Dark Eldar that some how deiceded to stop being all evil, and fight for the Tau'Va...as torture masters, so they still get to have some fun! FOR THE TAU'VA

Dakka Orkz: Orks who after getting their green rears handed to them, saw the Commander as the new war boss and followed him in his Waaaagh!. On ships they just get to play with the remains of the interigators. FOR THE TAU'VA

Stealth Deathwing: An army of stealth suits lead by Shadowsun. FOR THE TAU
VA

Rice Paddi: The Tau seem asian, so we thought of rice patties. FEED THE TAU'VA!

I know most (all) of these are fluff nightmare, but what ever. Have you ever had any messed up Tau ideas?

Not really though there was a joke going around for a while. See this one rather idiotic player that used to come to my local hobby shop had a Tau army. Now his army was painted in every shade of metalic color you could think of, and when I say painted I mean dolled on so thick it obscured detail and dotted on the tanks like poka dots. The army if you could call it that simply hurt the eyes to look at. So some of the others used to joke that it should be a weapon.

Shiny paint: The army is wearing armor so brightly painted that it hurts to look at. All enemies get a reduced range of 6" and get a pentalty of -1BS and LD and if they charge a unit with shiny paint they have to take a leadership or fail floundering in the painful flashyness.

The sad thing is some of them actually used that rule and... he still lost.

That aside I actually like the Shadowsun army idea it would just be cool to have an army entirely made up of stealth suits and sniper drones led by Shadowsun. Not too fluffy but hey it would be somewhat cool.

I can see the ork idea actually happening.... as a matter of fact, I'd be slightly surprised if it hasn't. I mean, for all we know the next galaxy over is home to the supper-happy love orks; their so mentally deviant it's impossible to guess what they'll do next.

I like the steath, ork and carnifex ideas. the problems woud be how the tau could capture a live carnifex, and how they would stop the orks from attacking people randomly when they got bored.

You can pretty much already do the shadowsun-stealth thing but it would be cool to have some special rules too.

Maybe just allow them all (including shadow sun) to deepstrike, that could be VERY useful but only if there is another command choice also. you can get BS 4 with targeting arrays.

Orkz: If they get bored, and they will, they give them POWs to play with. They all so can fight amonst them selves. But dont Orkz in a Waaagh! not fight each other?

Carnie: I'm sure the Tau have some kind of stunning weapon, or just blind it with Photons then use a really big net...

OR, kill the 'fex, then make it into a biomechanical battlesuit! like a cyborg, reanimated to fight for the greater good.
