Default Chaos Tau

i was thinking just out of curisosity what if a chaos sorcerer was bored and decided to play with the tau's minds. so they corrupt a etheral and they follow the etherals without question right? they are like the clones in revenge of the sith. a greater power told them to do something and they did it without question. so would it be possible do you think?

Tau have no psychic ability but so far the idea is pretty kool. I say they'd probably resemble farsight tau.

... Tau barely even register in the warp if at all, so they're probably as susceptible as ratlings are to taint in L5R. The only mention of anything like this being even remotely non-canonically possible was some scenario-writer or whatever trying to find an excuse as to how demonhunters would possibly even fight tau. Far more likely they'd just have run into eachother with the typical imperial reaction to anything not-them.

Don't we go through a topic like this every week?

I dunno maybe we go through this that many times. Still though to see mutated tau just ripping through other tau you could just picture it perfictly

Ahem. I present to you Chaos Tau! :P

Linky:http://uk.games-workshop.com/daemonh...adversaries/3/

Tau themselves can't really get possessed. But accordingly, Auns could. Imagine, your celestial leader suddening exploding into a 30 foot axewielding deamon?

ironically, when the possessing daemon takes over the auns body and comes forth, the aun dies.....

and that mean morale checks for the whole army!

if you want to read about chaos possessing tau, i would urge you to read the Fire Warrior book. Its stated explicitly that when Severus is torturing the etherial Kovash that tau could be possessed, but it would take centuries, and they'd be dead long before that!

Remember too that Kais was unhinged. he was one among countless thousands of tau who could hear the daemon whisper, and the only reason he could is he was mont'au. he never fit into the tau machine, and even as he was falling, and fell to chaos, all it took was a momentary glimpse of the etherial, and the entire hold that chaos had on him fell away.

in any case, tau regard chaos as the mont'au. they will not ally with it. they will not deal with it. plus, there's very little of the vast armies of chaos near the tau region of space.

@ Deadnight
/signed (why are you always right? Maybe thats one of the fundamental rules on this board... *g*)

Alright, I`m SICK of hearing this every week.

Can`t we just make a sticky thread which has only the title "No freakin` Chaos Tau threads anymore! We can`t take it anymore!" ;D

And this Etherealconversion is not canon. Its just a reason for demonhunters to fight Tau. Nothing more, nothing less.

Chaos Tau is silly!

On another note, what bout faster-than-light travel? The Tau don't have the warp, and as such no lightspeed capabilities. Already this is affecting them, as it is hard to get messages to and from the center of the empire.

My question is: What happens next?

The Tau can't really keep expanding without a lightspeed drive. I suppose the Fluff could let them make a technological advancement, and this seems likely, but all the other races use the warp (don't they?).

So if GW decideds that lightspeed isn't in the cards, the Tau can't keep expanding. And that's bad news for Tau players!
