Default Tau Septs

I was just curious to see which Sept's people preferred to have their Tau army from. And since I didn't find any previous polls on the subject (Maybe there are some and I just couldn't find them - I not the best at searching for things). I decided to make my own. If you have invented any of your own Sept's you can write down it's name in the reply section and possibly some history that you could have come up with?

Yay first vote! Tash'var all the way!

This is gonna sound really picky, but could you remove the apostrophe in the title? If this thread is gonna last a while I might go insane.

My commander and majority of his forces are from Tash'var, He often helps out with the Farsight's forces due to their shared hatred of orks, although he is discreet about it as he is still loyal to the Tau empire.
So I selected Tash'var and Farsight enclaves

Oh. I see there's a ncie variety occuring. I chose Vash'ya. Just 'cause of the limited information and proud Air Caste ties.

Mine are from T`au. I basically wanted a pacifying - occupation force for third sphere-worlds, and troops from the Mother World seemed best suited for this.

I went with Dal'yth due to the water caste, trading, etc. Seems like a non-home world way to be able to get any unit into the force: kroot, vespid, gue'vesa'la, etc.

I`m commanding the only Cadre from T`au? What has happened to the once proud motherworld? Only weak Por who can barely hold their pens, counting the assets of the other Septs?!?!

Apparently so, seeing as I'm from Dal'yth.

Cosmopolitan and lots of contact, I saw them as really vexing the Imperium by trading with worlds and thus figured it'd be good seeing as I play a lot of Imperial army's.

But as you put it...pen pushers.

Don't worry - I just so happen to command the second-only cadre from T'au... Yet another piece of evidence that our brains have somehow been psychically grafted at some point in the past.

When I settled on Tau after deciding to start 40k I wanted a clean looking, easy to paint and somewhat realistic color scheme, so I picked the T'au sept scheme since it reminded me of the WW2 Afrika Korps motif.*

*The T'au sept scheme also happens to be the one on the battleforce box art, which is what i started with.
