Becuase the way you write makes me want to kill people?

Maybe, its becuase the Tau dont need it? Its like giving Tau that extra BS. Its not going to work, it'll overpower them completly.

Maybe becuase Tau believe everything is done for the greater good?

Who knows, simple answer to your question however; they dont need it.

Why would anyone want rage? It works for Khorne beserkers but it would just get your FWs killed. :

Oh, and posting all in bold face is generally frowned upon.

Battle Rage is a very rare occurrence that only happens when an especially beloved Ethereal, Commander, what have you, falls for some reason.

It is -not- a close combat thing guys. It is merely steadily forwarding moving, without stopping the firepower. They just "let it rip" so to speak. Probably doubling or more their amount of shooting until the enemy just is vaporized.

It's only there for fluff reasons to give you an idea just how much they love their Ethereals and the like. Respect in the caste is more than just respect.

As I was reading about this this morning I feel I should add my own point.

Personally I think its a stupid concept, only playing up to the Tau's institution of firepower in their armies and lack of Close Combat.

"Damn they killed that lovely guy, lets get angry and shoot lots. Grrr I'm so angry I could hold this trigger all day. Oh, wait, we ran out of ammunition but I'm not angry anymore, lets make a 'tactical withdrawal' because we're about to get pounded and come back but get angry and shoot more".

I just don't see it happening. Of course it's all to do with the Tau psyche, but still find it quite a comical image

well, battle rage might actually work, maybe after all of the units took their moral checks for the ethereal dying, the remaining squads get to fire twice in the shooting phase? although that would still be pretty unbalanced...

No I don't think this particular espect of fluff needs a rule.

I agree, I was just stating that it could work.

Dizzy votes not, the codex needs to be fixed before they add in new rules, and this rule wouldnt add anything IMO.

and Typing in Red or bold is generally annoyingly hard to read and frowned upon as Pepper said.
