Default Army theme question

As any 40k players eventually do, Iím

trying to put a little originality into my army, which happens to be Tau. I love

the Tau army, and I love the models, but i am also intrigued a bit by the human

auxiliaries idea. I donít want to actually use them, instead give my army a theme

of being partially made up of them by using 20 Catachans as "Kroot", several

modified sergeants as Kroot hounds, and Ox from the Last Chancers as a Krootox. I

also, to make the human part of the army seem more important, want to modify a Leman Russ

Vanquisher, removing the lascannon up front, mounting Burst Cannons on the

sponsons, etc. I hoping to get a little input on this, does it seem unfluffy or

Hmmm......on the face of it, it doesn't

seem unfluffy to me. I take it you'd be using VDR for the Leman Russ.

What's the background/storyline for your force?

That sounds a pretty cool idea to me!!! So

instead of a small regiment of humans your gonna have a whole hunter cadre of them. You

could come up with loads of fluff for that idea!!!

So are you going to have an entire army of

"Counts as" or are they actually going to have some Tau in there?

the vanquisher float and act as a hammerhead might be interesting....
