Default Your Leader

this is kind of fluffish, but anyways

a lot of people ( myself included) like to name and give fluff to their commander/ethereals, so basically just give info on yours, how you usually use him in battle, etc.

Mine is Kauyon M'yen

He was O'Shovah's right hand man until he rebelled and broke away from the Enclaves, and headed west out of Tau space. His army are the Kauyon'Yanoi, The MoonHunters, and I basically count him as O'Shovah because the dawn blade is awesomeo and the ork fighter upgrade is absolutely delicious. I usually keep him alone for the IC rules and move him and my upgraded Crisis team in to take out the army with their rifles, then get close enough to assault. ( contrary to what you would think, it works and it works well)

Quite a shame to waste such a cool model, though...

You gotta admit the parry thing and the fact that his fire warrior squad gets +1 attacks is cool... not to mention the reroll thing he gives tau units for being an ethereal. He's not an offinsive unit, but better used to put him and his squad to defend lumbering broadsides, and keep a getaway devilfish nearby.

One of mine is my Ethereal. "Archangel"
Where on his home world there is a really bad warp storm still just by his planet.

Mutants and deamons find there way threw it and the tau not having much psychic abilities are not much use to a deamon so they are pretty much just destroyed by them.

Well an Ehtereal gave birth to her son "Archangel"
A winged Ehtereal.

If you think tau follow ethereals then emagine how badley they fallow him.

He has grown into a great warrior and fights against the deamons or spawns that poor forth from the warp hole onto his planet.


Here.



and a size shot of just how large and powerful he is for an Ethereal.
