Default Tau hand-to-hand

I was thinking to model a fire warrior squad to hand-to-hand combat.
But, i don't no if the ethereal allows.
The idea was to buy 12 kroots and 1 squad of fire warriors, and cutoff the blades on the kroot guns, and glue them on the guns of the fire warriors.
Farsigt use close combat, but not with blades.

Well you wont gain anything of it stat wise. But theres nothing in the rules that forbids you creating youre own models.

The Ethereal doesn't get you any bonus in close combat, except that the unit will not break from close-combat until he is killed. So while it might be a fun modeling project, I would still try to avoid getting the unit tied up in assaults during a game.

I'm thinking of doing a suit with special close combat weapons. A follower of Farsight in a sence. Suites for close combat make much more sence to me. Farsight is devastating in CC.

I know they don't even have rules for farsight people for h2h.* Which is totally unfluffy. Join the Campaign Do it for the Greater Good.

Well, at the end of the day, a Tau is still a Tau. But an Elite or Heavy Support character with a decent WS is nice. Would've loved to have a Gue'vesa'O though...

That sound's like a find conversion. I'd hate to waste the kroot models for just that, but their's defiantly nothing wrong with addig blades to the guns. Are you planning on building a Farsight army?

Kroot come with a decent number of extra parts. It should not prove to be too much of a waste, especially if you plan to include a lot of Kroot in your army.

Agreed, I still have parts left from my kroot parts and I put it on my pathfinders (packs, knives, pistols etc) I did this for a survival and scout theme.
