Default Do you trust those pesky humans?

I like space marines but I don't want to get into them, if you're the same get some SMs, take their aquila off with a file or hobby knife, and give them tau symbols and sept stripes. FOR THE GREATER GOOD!

Well technically the Human auxilliaries are IG (They have the same statline and uses lasrifle)...that,s wy Cadian and Catachan are usually used.

I don't know...SM as template for Gue'vesa sounds interesting but I'm afraid they would look too bulky.

humans are always supporting my main lines.

it isnt unusual to see 4 of my 6 troop slots taken up just with them. And even in times Ill use an ethereal so I can use 5 of the 6 troop slots.

Some markerlight, some support, some counter attack, and some can both support and counterattack.

I have made about 80 human auxiliaries altogether, but Have 65 today (sold some of them on EBAY) as for the sept symbols, I believe there is a picture out there of a fully kitted out cadian, with tau firewarrior armor. If I can find it ill show you.

Actually, my whole army is humans (I use converted IG as fire warriors)



Here are some of my fire warriors getting smacked by a Necron Lord



My crisis suits are the olive drab ones

.....................................yeah but I hate IG.... I use SMs, I dont think they're too bulky, perhaps I shouldnt call them auxillaries.

a mainstay unit is not what a human auxiliary is about.

They support the lines, hence auxiliary.

ur rite power armour tau is a really bad thing lol I just gave them the same colour scheme as my tau and gave them tau symbols, I didn't get into giving them tau weapons, not that I'm not a keen convertor, of course.

[hr]

ugabah... DUH! not auxillaries, what was I thinking! now everyone's probably sitting at home thinking "What kind of noob would call Tau supporting SMs auxillaries?" <slaps own head>

Uh guys, I still use them as Tau, but my own faction. I don't use IG stats at all.

"ur rite" -> "You are right" >

I have about eight. I didn't really like using them in competitive lists, but they were fun to convert, and they do interesting things. If I start another Tau army, I would probably convert a few more to mix in with Fire Warrior teams.
