World was vassalized by Water Caste, and while much of the world is happier under Tau rule, there are still dissidents, and kind of a Nazi-occupied France underground resistance of Imperials firebombing Earth Caste factories or whatever. I like to think that the new sept has become adept at espionage, spycraft, and other small-cell urban guerrilla door-kicker operations.
I get to have Tau kill teams, including guard/PDFs, hunt other guards, renegades, GSCs and the occasional unit of smuggled Space Marines.
Really? The T'au
sorry Tau, already get tarred with the "filthy xeno" label and as "space communists"; do we also have to become "space nazis" too?
Here's a better scenario for you: Korean peninsula 195O
The NATO forces (Tau Empire) are assisting their ally the Gue'vesa forces (South Koreans) in their war against Communist North Korean (Gue'la), who are being assisted by the evil Communist China (Adeptus Astartes).
Remember the Imperium of Man has:
- The Cult of Personality around a god-like leader (Emperor of Mankind)
- This includes the Imperial Cult - worship of the Emperor
- Secret Police - Inquisitors
- Political Commissars
- Gulag camps
- Penal Battalions
- Death Battalions
- Regularly commit genocide
Whose a "space commie" or "space nazi" now?
