Colt, welcome to the A.T.T. forum!
First let me say: Outstanding!
What a great first post, you've got awesome pictures of your army, really good back story, and you even included original transfer designs too! All I can say is wow!
It would be nice if you would let us know a little more about yourself, and so if you would please make a post in the Memebership Profiles
(just click on the word to go that forum).
Also, there were photos of your army; which has great colour scheme, and looks good too! You can post photos of your army here on the Earth Caste/Galleries
And here is the link on how to post photos, Official ATT Guide to Posting Images
. You don't have to use Photobucket; any photo sharing website will do, like Pinterest, Google Photos, or Dropbox. You just need to be sure and get the "sharing url" or "direct url" from whatever site you use.
The backstory is not only believable, but quite viable. In the WH40K lore, there is a mention of "lost worlds from the Age of Exploration". In fact the Mechanicum is always on the look out for such lost worlds, as they are repository of "pure human" genetic material. I will be sending you a PM (personal message) with some ideas for your backstory.
FYI (For Your Information) I am the guy that does the An Expanded Tau Lexicon 2017
. So here are a few items to help you with your Tau'sia (Tau language).Erra
= 'Shadow', 'Shade', or 'Spirit' (Ghost)
Fio'erra therefore could also mean, 'Earth Spirit'. Gue
= 'Being' or 'Creature' (can refer both to persons or animals)Gue'la
= 'Lesser Being" that is a human.Gue'vesa
= 'Lesser Helper' that is a human who joined the Tau Empire.
Now here is one I invented for the Enclaves - Gue'anda Gue
= 'Brother' or 'Sister' (can mean either)Gue'anda
= Lesser Brother. Lesser in the sense of 'lesser sibling' (younger) versus an 'greater sibling' (older). A similar to the Confucian idea of the Elder Brother/Younger Brother relationship.
In my own lore of the Enclaves, the Tau don't use Gue'vesa; but rather Gue'anda to refer those humans who have joined them. Very fitting for the humans of Shadow Earth.
Again a great first post!
PS Will PM you later.
