I kinda get why they wouldn't push units of suits able to take fusion blades, but it sucks anyway because that would be pretty cool to have a unit of suits with fusion blades.
Viorla had a much less striking theme back in the day (sorta off green/white) and with their upgrade took a lot of zap away from an enclave army. I painted mine blue because 1. Tau blood is blue and the whole 'hot blooded' thing I took to mean the Tau were hot blooded.
2. (Primarily) I wanted a blue army. Tan blue and gray. My suits were more colorful with my infantry I was going more for muted themes as they are supposed to use cover and the bad guys are supposed to go *insert any Armored Core or Gundam opening* at the sight of the suits. The infantry was there in early editions to stay in cover providing transports while the suits killed the heaviest stuff.
