Default Medic Tau?

Hey i just got this idea (that i might try to do a conversion for later on) about a Tau medic, i don't know if there already is one or if someone has made one (please post pic if you have) but i thought it would be a pretty cool unit to make, what do you guys think?

And also what Caste would he/she belong to?

Well a battlefield medic would probably be fire caste, and a ship's doctor might be air caste, but since medicine is a science, that would be the realm of the earth caste.

well i would be starting now but i don't have any spare torso's for a firewarrior so i can't till i can get my hands on one

but because I've never really converted anything it probably wouldn't be in any magnificent poses or anything, but what i am hoping to do is give him some kind of pulse pistol in one hand and use the little....[i]device thing[i] as some sort of scanner (the little thing you can make your firewarriors hold)

dont worry about that.. you only get better with practice. Also, the simpler conversions are often the best! =O)

yay

And also if my opponent let me i would create some special rule for the Tau medic so that once per turn if a tau soldier (not battle suits) is wounded because of gun fire that if you roll the right numbers the medic saves him from the wound, i say not for battle suits because well i think it would be pretty hard for a medic to remove someone from a battle suit, and im not sure weather or not he should be able to join squads of kroot because he may not know their anatomy

Basically like a firewarrior attachment, would be nice to see the model. When I tried to make my ejected battlesuit pilot I gave him a pistol and that scanner, but th pistol looked horrible. So if you make one that looks good you'll have to let me know how you did it.

I agree. Medical Orderlies that are attached to units definitely belong to the Firecaste, and most probably every Firewarrior has at least a fundamental understanding of first aid.

The more sophisticated stuff (surgeons, specialists, etc.) are Earth Caste Tau, for certain.

But please don't ask questions how exactly Tau doctors are organised... I have no clue...

Cheers,

The trend for "Medics" nowadays (5th Edition) is that they grant the attached unit the Feel No Pain USR but are limited to "Command" squads or "Bodyguard" units e.g. Space Marine Command Squad and Ork Nobz.

For the Tau, it would be the Ethereal's Honor Guard or the Tau Commander's XV-8 'Crisis' Battlesuit Bodyguard Team. For the Honor Guard, you can just give one of the Honor Guard a "Medi-pack" for XX-Points. For the Battlesuit Bodyguard, you allow them to have the Special Issue Wargear like their Commander.
