So I thought I would post my own Tau faction because there isn't much else that I can do for my space marines so I decided to do Tau next. I had to do a little research to better strengthen their fluff and this is what I got. They are called Mont'yr Kor'la which means Blooded Air Warrior

Mont’yr Kor’la

The Fire caste that make up the cadres of Mont’yr Kor’la are very much like the cadres stationed aboard Air caste vessels interdicting the Perdus Rift. They have become dedicated towards ship to ship combat action such as boarding parties. Their origins however go back to the Damocles Gulf War when the Imperium attempted to wipe out the Tau Empire in one stroke. They were part of a fishery colony located in the Viss’el system and suffered horrendous losses. Ever since then these fire warriors have had a strong burning hatred of the Imperial Navy that destroyed their colony from the sky.

Due to the fighting style the fire warriors of Mont’yr Kor’la employ, they generaly prefer pulse carbines over pulse rifles. XV8 and XV88 battle suits are not as common in the cadres as the XV15 or the XV25 stealth suits whose standard weapons are most useful with the Burst Cannon being more then capable of clearing a corridor and the Fusion Blaster’s ability to burn threw the thickest of bulkheads. These tactics have also proved to be most useful in the pacification of the Imperial Hive city’s on the planet of Somua where Kais’el of the Water caste claimed that the cadres of Mont’yr Kor’la do with shas’la what most would do with crises suits. Unfortunately there are some Shas’O who look down on the Mont’yr kor’la with disgust as they fight side by side with Kroot and other alien auxiliary with a similar aggressive combat ferocity. Such attitudes towards warfare is often seen as barbaric, savage and potentially straying from the path of the greater good; but their effectiveness in battle has proven them worthy many times over.

Well thats all I got for now I hope it was a good read :victory:

I think it is definitely a good starter thing. I'm not a Tau expert whatsoever but it sounds good to me!

An interesting take on things mate, I hardly ever see anything on the Tau so I am glad there is someone who does stuff for them! Plus rep dude, keep up the good work :)

So far so very, very plausible (which in my mind is the most important thing about homebrew backgrounds)- I'd like to see more but this is definitely going in my list of Favourites as one to watch.

(also imntdead, didn't know you did Tau as well).

:victory: Well my intention is to actually write up a very believable, plausible, creative and unique faction for each Warhammer 40K army.

Now there is much that I can still do for my Black Dogs; but as of now they stand on a very powerful foundation so I went on to the next 40K army :eek:k:

I always see tons and tons of DIY Space Marine chapters/Legions; but rarely do I see any for the other 40K army's :(

Right now this is just the base for my Tau faction which is an army I actually do not have for the tabletop as with many army's; but I have each codex. So really there is nothing to get in my way of writing up some fluff :thank_you:
