Default Hey. Did you notice in Dark Crusade....? (spoilers)

im sure you did but i was wondering those who played the newest expansion of DOW noticed our tau commander's name is kais? and who else had that same name....?

fire warrior? ring a bell? i think the protangonist for the tau in both game is the same character (or so i like to believe). there been some time between the games i think its possible hes one in the same. though pronouced different it fits in, plus be really cool if so.

minor note, THQ made both games some connection here....?

any thoughts?

this excited me b/c for some reason "kais" is the reason why i joined the 40k universe in the first place. dunno why, in the game he's not much of a "character" guess he got alot of life when i read the book. just cool to see a dead character come to life, one you really liked ya kno?

But then again Kais is a pretty normal Tau word; just like Shovah. If it indeed is the same Kais; we don't know.

No that guy's from vior'la. Kais the game dude is from T'au.

Which would probably confirm that the guy from Fire Warrior and the commander from Dark Crusade are one and the same.

Might be a common name for all we know.

I'm really disappointed by the lack of Gue'vesa in game, since the entire game was set up so that the Tau would be ruling some humans. I figured that their Stronghold would at least have a few allied Imperial Guard divisions labeled as "Gue'vesa."

Default Tau Empire in Dark Crusade

I myself was hoping for the manta for their ultimate unit! instead was a krootox which wasn't disappointing... but i'm not big on kroot so now i must include kroot to have thier huge special relic unit. I was not surprised but i think it is strange how accurate they made tau firwwarriors! they are great! but only 6 in a squad in the leader/sargent, i don't have a codex near by and don't feel like getting it, but you have two of them or sheild drones. drones are sweet in ranged but it seems the tau were not as over powered as i thought they would... anywone think the same?
