Hello Fellow Tau!
I wanted to post a little bit about the custom Sept I've been working on. Now this isn't the miniatures, this is the lore behind them. Now if it's frowned upon to create your own custom Sept (like it has been in other tau forums) then you can delete this post if needed but I've had fun writing various stories and the like for this faction which I think I'll be posting to this... post.
Lets get started shall we?
"Fue'gel, the isolated sept far away from the Tau Empire's borders. During one of the great expansions a T'au fleet began to head towards the planet simply known as 'Habitable Planet 190'. Upon reaching their they met bitter resistance by the Orks who had masked their presence on the planet making the Initial Contact
a brutal one. Leading this T'au fleet was a young Aun who the etherals sent out for his first taste of command, be that a difficult first taste. As the battle raged on 'Planet 190' the orks surprised the T'au fleet floating above the planet desamating it with ground to space guns and suicide ships. Hope seemed lost for the T'au as they felt the planet itself was a death trap. The planet was covered in a gray sand whose mountains gave a stark contrast being made of reds, browns and various other hues showing their richness of ore. Even the weather itself was an oddity of harsh winds and the occasional gentle rain. Below the planet's surface lay a network of natural tunnels and caverns that the T'au had to adapt to for their combat with the orks. The carbine and blaster became common tools of combat for the fire warriors as skirmishes under ground took place daily. There was a slight glimmer of hope, many months into the combat on the unnamed planet the earth caste were able to contact a nearby Vior'la fleet. They came to help but met the same fate as the T'au did and became trapped together. The young Aun united his people and years of harsh combat followed until the last remaining tribes of orks left the planet but little did they know they had been forgotten, no erased, from records at the decree of the Ethereals. Such a defeat couldn't get to the public and the Aun was recorded as deceased. Years later a small exploratory fleet rediscovered Planet 190 and landed on the surface shocked to be greeted by their own kind who told them they had arrived on the planet Fue'gel
. Little did those of this lonely planet know they would soon face a harsh reintroduction into T'au society..."
So that is a little summary giving hints towards some stories I've already written about this new Sept. I've tried to keep some things vague so that I can adapt this towards the changing codexes but tell me what you think and I'll soon get some of the stories posted I've written!
