starting my tau, figuring out the paint scheme right now - it's based off of the Militia from Titanfall.
Goal I've started:
Firewarriors and breachers and all units will be mixed species, with armor sculpted on kroot and humans either in scion armor or sculpted on IG.
background idea behind them:
This remnant Tau force was once part of the 4th sphere expansion, when they were swallowed by the great rift they were sent to an unkown sector of space to the tau. the Ghoul star system, where space itself is distorting.
Given the numerous loses the Tau took in the warp and subsequent battles when re-emerging from warp space, the casualties have caused the survivors to rethink parts of the greater good. amending or adding to them. Now any able bodied warrior for the greater good can be trained as firewarrirors, to fill in the absent ranks. A 10 man breacher team is now composed of 5 tau, 3 kroot and 2 humans, all trained together and perform up to par.
this thinking goes to all branches of the military now, and the earth caste has been busy modifying interiors/chasis of the suits to accommodate other species, Kroot are now the go to pilots for the Ghost keel suits and xv25 stealth battlesuits.
