Default Kauyon or Mont'ka

After a recent discussion on the Cadre where we have decided to organise members into Tio've (contingets 3-6 Cadres to save people flicking through the codex) for Campaigns and painting competitions and the like, and basing these Tio've onthose dedicated to Kauyon and Mont'ka.

My question is how many of you consider your Cadre to be a based around the lightning strike Mont'ka or the Cunning and Strategic Kauyon.

Me im Kauyon... Nothing quite gives me a kick as getting the oponent to react how I want them to, both in 40k and martial arts.
What about you?

Its got to be the Kauyon for me.

The hunter waits for his prey to enter and area and then you strike with as much force on it as you can.

Mont`ka all the way - I play Mech Tau, and nothing says "Killing Blow" more than massed Hammerheads and Crisis Battlesuits. ;D

i say always adapt- never rely on anything for victory except what is and what will be available. Be unexpected.

Mont'ka. To me, Mont'ka is just tau for blitzkrieg, and that I believe is sheer tactical brilliance. Forget dancing to my tune, you'll be running away in fear!

It's rather how I play all my games. Rise of Nations and all. Course, with FPS games, then it's a bit of Kauyon, but even as a sniper, I'm still the most aggressive player on my team.

i'm currently working on a mech tau army, so mont'ka for me
i love the fact that every unit in my planned army list can move 12" and fire in the same turn, though they will be outnumbered...
(any suggestions before i start to buy stuff?)
why is it that no one ever has anything good to say about my posts...

...I dunno really, I used to think about that but I stopped caring after a while. All I know is I'll be putting the mont'ka symbol on my broadsides and hammerheads. :P

Probably Mont'ka, my armies charge towards the enemies more than they come to me.
Rapid firing instead of charging of course, utterly anhilliating the target part of my opponent's army in a turn or two of fire.

I use FoF nuff said.
But A bit of both could be wait for them to get to you then fly over them and fire everything from behind.

are space elfs. Of course their boots never get dirty, their stuff won't get dirty, their weapons won't get dirty, their hair won't get dirty, the aspect warriors won't get dirty, and their women won't get dirty - which is also why they are a dying race. ^-^
