Default fluffy fluffy tau

im thinking of making a fluff tau army, but i have no clue how to go about doing it
should i do a farsight army?
shadowsun?
maybe just etherals?
and how should it look in respects to the fluff?
would farsight be infantry heavy?
shadowsun more mobile?

any and all input is apreciated

First, pick some aspect of the Tau you want to fexpand on. Start out by picking Ethereals, Space Pope, Farsight, or Shadowsun. And onec you have picked one, then find out all you can about that person. Then make an army that suits what you've learned.

Before ever considering a fluffy Tau army, ask yourself how much you like to lose.

Me personally, I'm okay at it, but I never ever like it.

If you're new to Tau, and even more so if you're new to 40K, then you need to know how easy on your psyche it will be to lose big and lose often.

Let's assume you're okay with that, then you just need to figure out what kind of fluff you want to go with. I personally consider my mech Tau army of about 8 tanks "Fluffy"

What kind of fluff did you think about, and how did you propose enacting it with an army list and play style?

There are some other aspects you could go for. You could go for a more "purist" approach with only Tau units (like a cadre from Vior'la), or an auxiliary-heavy army (like one from Dal'yth).
