Default Bork'an sept

Bork'an has snow-camo colour scheme in the new codex, but they say the Bork'ans use different camo in different areas. The question is: is Bork'an some kind of a winter sept? The sept colours look cool and I've already have ideas of Bork'an Ice Warriors, kind of experts of Kauyon, cool and disciplined 'Fire' Warriors, and maybe some absolute zero degrees - weaponry. Something like being able to freeze water features, possibly Pinning...

Do not confuse sept colours and armour colour.


The Sept Colours are the colours used on the lines, such as those on the helmet.

The Armour Colour is chosen by the Cadre, and is usually based on whatever camouflage pattern is needed at the time.

All sept's use different clor-schemes depending on the enviroment they fight in. The Bork'an sept is not specialized in fighting on ice-worlds or snow. Ca'sea (whisch is the the sept I chose for my army) is represented with a urban warfare color scheme in the Codex. The codex says that the scheme shown are used by all septs as urban camouflage. Whats importent is the sept color and not the color scheme of the armor.

but a nice idea though: Different sept worlds specialized in different inviroments.

Oops, you're right, my mistake* ;D. I kinda summed them up in 'sept colours'.

So Bork'an is not a snow-world? The only relevant colour is the Hawk Turquoise sept colour and that doesn't have anything to do with the Bork'an's home sept?


Well, I might as well* invent my own snow-world, even got a name for it: Fin'land . Governed by the only known female Ethereal Aun'Tar'Ja Ha'Lon'En. Hey, it even sounds like an Ethereal name...

The Codex doesn't really say how the world looks. We do know this though:

The green sept color is symbolic to the Tau and represents practicality.
Bork'an is the center of learning and academia.
A high percentage of the Fio caste come from Bork'an

I'd assume that announcing Bork'an as a snow-world wouldn't kill anyone? Another possibility would be Vior'something, like cold-blooded, a brand new Third Sphere winter sept utilizing freezing weaponry.
