Default chaos tau fluff


Proof of tau being able to turn chaos. I think GW is just stretching the fluff factor a little bit to much so that EVERY army can play against ANYTHING.

Default Re: chaos tau fluff

Please do a search, that has come up many times and its not proof Tau can turn to chaos, its proof Tau can be manipulated by chaos. Plus theres a GW conversions article showing a Possessed Etherial, which makes little sense as Firewarrior tells us that Etherials while not impervious to daemonic power would burn out in seconds and the same goes for the whole Tau race.

That article and the handful of others from GW isn't proof there are chaos Tau, merely that not everyone at GW took the time to research the background of their own armies. When Cities of Death came out a Strategem that effects Sniper Rifles was asserted to boost the abilities of Sniper Drones in a preview GW article even though Rail Rifles aren't Sniper Rifles, and thats just one example.

But anyway that article is pretty old and its been discussed more than once. Topic Locked.
