+++T’AU OUTPOST+++

 

ETL_6_Poster_02_Forum_XENOS_Tau.jpg

 

 

Welcome to the T’au Outpost. The T’au belong to the “Xenos” Faction.


HERE IS WHERE YOU MUST POST YOUR VOWS

 

Here you must also post your “before” and “after” pics of your vows as well as any WIP you may want to share. You may also use this thread to discuss the progress of the event with your fellow participants, exchange ideas, offer and receive modelling/painting advice and generally have some ETL–related fun!

Here you’ll be able to submit vows that include the following units: 

- Codex T’au Empire: All units
·      

Imperial Armour Index – Xenos:

  • All units from the “T’au Empire” list

- Index Imperium 2:

  • All units from the Fortifications list

IMPORTANT NOTE: ALWAYS USE THE LATEST PUBLICATION TO SELECT AND PRICE YOUR UNITS
This means that the Index lists are good until the Codex is released (in which case the Index list becomes obsolete and cannot be used by anyone). Also, FAQs that come in the wake of a particular Codex (or other publication) take precedence over the Codex (or other publication). Also, any PDF releases by either Games Workshop or Forge World are also admissible (even if experimental) until an official publication that contains them is released. 

 

Before you post you vow make sure you familiarise yourself with the ETL VI rules. You can find a link to the ETL VI rules below:

It saddens me greatly that we must take arms against the peoples of the galaxy.

By their deaths, they deny themselves the liberation that is only to be found in total surrender to the Greater Good.

 

Soldiers of the T'au Empire, now is the time to take up arms. Now is the time to strive to succeed and to push ourselves to ever greater endeavours for only then can others be made to see the error of their ways and be shown the true path of The Greater Good...

 

 

I Elmo rise to the challenge of E TENEBRAE LUX on the side of the T'au Empire and vow to complete 3 x XV9 Hazard Battlesuits, 1 x XV88-2 Broadside Battlesuit and 9 x XV8 Crisis Battlesuits for a total value of 1243 points on or before August 1st, 2018. Success will bring me eternal glory and failure will doom me to wear the Badge of the Oathbreaker until the year-end.

The question of the timing of the commencement of hostilities is one upon which you must meditate most deeply.

Once your decision is arrived at, it must be pursued with the utmost energy.

“The T’au’va frees us from the anarchy of disunity and the tyranny of the self. It frees us from corruption, jealousy, and petty ambition.

We will bring this precious freedom to the galaxy’s suffering masses, even if we must do so at the barrel of a pulse rifle!” —Ethereal Aun’Lan

You guys are a committed bunch - aren't ya ?

 

And, at the moment, you also have the single biggest vow too: 4,000pts by Shas’O R’alai!!! Good luck with that mate! 

 

It definitely looks like you guys have a lot of momentum - that's really encouraging as I would really like to see the Xenos Faction making an impression this year. And the Tau are well positioned to become Primus Inter Pares of the Xenos Faction!

ANARIS 131 - Manta

Known missions:
- Flag ship for Farsight during all operations until after Arthas Moloch. Prior name: Kor'Ar'Kais'Cha 131
- Fitted for command/special operations role.
- Operational black out after Farsight left operational status. Ship was left in AI and drone control with no living crew for duration of his exile. It was in the same condition as when it left Moloch.
(Farsight used 131 for his research and self introspection of his condition and purpose post Moloch. Evidence and relics from the encounter had to be separated but still reviewed for tactical analysis.)
- When Farsight returned to active operations, so did 131 but with a different flag name.
- Currant crew: 2 Kor pilots, 4 Kor gunners, Aun'Cha (Ethereal AI Holo-Commander designed by Farsight), and Shas'O'Cyr'Da (Special operations officer: XV80-2 Black Raven "Ke'lshan variant") . All pilots are Alpha grade covert operations specialists.
