Default Tau fun :)

here is the army stats basically this is my tau army story

A tau army was wondering on a planet were chaos was heard to be they had lost contact with the eteral after the dire message of "not to continue further" but as my tau are idiots they ignore the etherals and decide to march on . so the tau go marching on and they find them self in front of a gate to the warp of khorne as my tau are idiots (again) they decide to walk through this gate their minds then burst to the perals of the warm and are influenced by chaos and now fight the blood god of khorne.

advantages of army
can be given mark of khorne for +5 points giving them blood rage
can take beserkers as elites
may summon deamons from the warp (can posses models to become bloodthirster

disadvantages
no battle suits can be taken as elite choices
no stealth suits can be taken as elit choices
kroot ar forbiden completly
no ethereal may be taken
enemy find these tau a big threat and may take an extra elites fast attack or heavy support

this was the idea i was gonna run with to crush my foes into oblivion as i am doing a campaign and i was the defender of the plant and khorne imperial guard and latd invaded so thats the plan

think that this would be quite cool??? for model puproses and fluff purposes (the lost contact with the ethereal before you say all tau have one)

lol, they were effected by the warm?
take some time when you write, maybe 20 secounds more, and make sure its as typo free as it could be, because that was very difficult to read

anyway
i HATE the idea of tau CC specialists almost as much as i hate pink choas legions... and dont get me started on pink tau CC specialists (yes ive seen them at a hobby shop before... almost exploded my brain :-P)
but if you want to do this, here's my advice....
the bezerkers are a nice touch, i like it, but make them hella expensive, as it's very unlikely that the blood god is gonna give this new Physicaly pathetic race of servants anything greater than a las pistol and a sword... and maybe a book full of korhniness :-P, and tell them to die all bloody like...
also, a nice fluffy thing to do was bump you WS to 4, and decrease your BS to 2, as a blood rage fills your body, your probably gonna be less acurate. and it would stop people from complaining about getting the "best of both worlds" if everything was bs2
as for restricted units, AUX's should be off limits, piranha, pathfinders, braodsides, and gun drones should be off limits but i think if you kept the ethereal, played the same rules, but made him all khornee (lol, corny... lol), with spikes, and alotta red, it would be a totally fluffy cool unit.
you could say he was there leading them to find his lost betheren, and say this warp portal, and in a fevor of the Tau way, decided it was a good idea to go head first in to save his buddy...

Should this be in house rules?

On topic, Chaos, close combat, Tau is very far-fetched.
I suggest hiding the thread from Wargamer.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

yeah i did mean warp i thought i wrote it right couldnt remeber lol

"also, a nice fluffy thing to do was bump you WS to 4, and decrease your BS to 2, as a blood rage fills your body, your probably gonna be less acurate. and it would stop people from complaining about getting the "best of both worlds" if everything was bs2

yeah that is a nice tuch marker drones will be off limit though im guessing but marker lights still ok????

and mayb have beserkers at like 5-10 points more per man???

i was thinking this would be extremily fluffy to go against deamon hunters as in the codex it says there needs to be a good reason for deamon hunters to hunt down a group and a group of chaos tau is somthing the imperium can not ignore :P

Well, it is an amusing idea. I don't think Khorne would have much patience with the average Tau, though, and they are incredibly difficult to corrupt given their low Warp sensitivity. As with most irregular lists, I would suggest doing it as "counts-as" Lost and the Damned, as then you don't need complicated house rules to represent your army.

no what they are is chaos driven fire warriors with some beserkers thrown in but the commander is still a battle cuit ( a chaos driven one) so everything (seeings as it is khorne) has +1 ws and - 1 bs also the commander suit will have acess to the armoury of khorne but for extra points i was thinking this as the leader:

Shas'o
indrum armour
sheild generator
flamer (because of the story of kharne lol)
axe of khorne (this will be 40 points instead of usual price)
mark of khorne
talismum or burning blood (20 instead of normal i no im over on gifts but if you do it by the chaos book i am not)
and that comes to189 points i belive
any comments?

I agree with Khanaris, just use the army as "counts as" and use the LatD army rules, or chaos or whatever you like. All this rules changing is only going to piss off your friends in the end because thier's no real way to see if your changes are balanced or not, untill they actually play against it. And if you wan't a hth army that has bad BS, go for the orks army list.
