Default Tau tale of woe...

Well odd thing,

I was playing dark crusade last night and attacked the Tau home base playing marines. So I started persecuting and purging the Tau.

I started feeling...bad...like I should not be doing this. I was feeling bummed...as I killed the Ethereal for the "W".

Tau have always been my "Soul" army. I once gave the win to another Tau player at an RTT instead of playing him.

Anyone else have this kind of "heart string" feelings for the Tau?
I think I may be moving back to Tau.

I think I'll have a stronger....connection with them when I get my models all painted and my Cadre fluff and short stories written. At the moment they are just the cool shooty anime army that I betrayed my Orks to.

Bah, I had fun killing the Tau. I'd deep strike assault terminators in the middle of their bases and cackle evilly while they literally tore apart everything.

Don't even get me started on the assault on the final base. Land Raider + 3 full Rhinos + Grey Knights and the Holocaust and the Orbital Strike FTW!!!

I'm with you on the Dark Crusade part , even in team games I leave any Tau opponent alone ( I will crush any attack from them though ).

In tournaments or one off games I look at it as Tau war games . Just something for the new shas to cut their teeth on . ;D

I could almost see that.
Like if a few Tau went off and they were found and brainwashed and what not. Then, they are made into Tau Marine things. That would be crazy. "And they shall know no close combat skills"~ Xv15 Stealth

Aye I know exactly what you mean. DoW aside, I had an IG and SM army as well as Tau. I often whinced when seeing articles of them fighting each other and just couldn't do it any longer.

My IG were sold a few months ago and SMs are going on ebay this weekend! Tau only for me :-D

Totally.

On Dark Crusade, I don't fight the Tau in campaign, I let the PC races get rid of them as I feel bad....

As for TT, I simply won't play against Tau with mine, its Chaos-Grey-Knight syndrome.

I've never played against them with my other armies though..

Tau are cool and while it is acceptable to give a win to them now and then, you must remember something.

They called your mother names and need to be punished.

With a shotgun.

In conclusion, don't do it often.
