Default Battlesuit Psychosis

I don't suppose anyone remembers where the detail about battlesuit psychosis were? It's not in the codex, unless I am missing something. I remember reading about it when the Tau were first released. I am working on a backstory for using adversaries, and I thought it might be a good detail.

Thanks for the link. I believe that is what I read, although I seem to recall it mentioned somewhere else.

One of my regular opponents plays daemonhunters, and I have been feeling a little bad for him in that he rarely gets to use most of his toys.* In our present campaign, I have many potential HQ choices in my army:* three shas'O, and various shas'el and ethereals.* I am going to randomize one of them to be secretly possessed.* That will add quite a bit of tension to the games we play, as my opponent will have no idea which of them is the adversary.* Since only two will ever be fielded at the same time, it may be a while before he uncovers where the daemon is hiding.* By supplementing this process with Kill-team missions, he may be able to uncover the truth more quickly.

As to why this particular Tau became possessed (assuming it is not the ethereal), I was thinking it might have its roots in a case of battlesuit neurosis.* By becoming obsessed with the power and control offered by his battlesuit, and seeking ways to enhance its abilities, this particular warrior may have sought the aid of agents of chaos (one of the other campaign players is CSM.)* Building FW's battlesuits left be with almost a complete battlesuit to spare, so I am working on converting a suitable possessed suit.* I am using a lot of guitar wire.* I'll post pictures when it is close to being done.

hmm... sounds interesting, attlesuit neurosis causes the subject to focus on his own glory IIRC so it would make a good candidate for posession, what god? please say its a god and not undivided :P.

and I'd love to see the Kt progression and possible story arcs if you have that done already :

I'm still working on the Kill-team stuff. The campaign is Vogen, so there are plenty of good locations for sneakiness. The chaos player is focusing on Slaanesh, so the route to the Tau psyche would be through the thrill of control, rather than bloodlust. It works pretty well, actually. Is the obliterator cult associated with any named Chaos god? That might be another idea.

the obliterator cult is an undivided cult, its a virus actually, kind of throws a wrench in it :P, he could have contracted the technovirus though, that would be a decent story arc :P
