is this possible Fluff wise?
And if yes, are there any mods or stories for that
Also what are your opiions on this.

TLDR: Chaos Tau general

>> No.12688133

Chaos can corrupt anything. There's records of Chaos Orks and even Chaos Tyranids.

The Tau have very small Warp presences, so Chaos just doesn't bother with them when there's so many delicious humans to eat. But if that's all that's available, or if Tzeentch has a particular plan in mind, then the Tau will see the power of Chaos, willing or not.

Ive heard they were immune to chaos, but im not sure.

>> No.12688170

there was a WD article detailing how different races would be corrupted when the Daemonhunters book first came out

because they have very little warp (psychic) prescience, the tau need to be directly influenced by chaos, be it through a tainted artifact, a materialized daemon, or some follower of chaos corrupting them

I find it would be best to play up their naive nature. "our glorious leader should inspect this artifact personally!" or "I will go meet with them to convince them of the greater good!"

If an ethereal gets possessed, he can do just about anything he wants with the tau under his command.

>> No.12688176

Not the same setting, but Chaos cannot affect Vampires. Cited from the Liber Necris since even though vampires are undead goops of Mary Sue, they are completely self-contained emotion and psychic power vessels immune from entropy. Suck on that, Chaos.

>> No.12688183

I'd say it's possible, but very few chaos commanders could be arsed to recrute them. They make for pitiful sacrifices, are no use in chaos's notmal tactics (i.e. scream and charge into melee) and would take way too much coercing before they'd get on their side. Best just to shoot them.

Oh, sweet, I always liked the idea of a Vampire just roaming the Northern Wastes killing Chaos war bands and stuff. Good to know.

Considering the Tau are more or less slightly brain washed by the ethereals I don't really see this happening. Also the Tau don't reall yproject a shadow in the warp so its almost impossible for the powers of chaos to affect them. If they turned Chaos it would only be in a very limited religious like practice that they could never really follow up on.

Frankly, I imagine most gods don't see a point in bothering, especially when some of them are running worlds with humans on. Eventually Tau will have to learn how fucking dangerous that is and that the Imperium's crazy inquisition actually serves a purpose.

It's not hard to imagine humans under the Tau's care forming cults and becoming dangerous. As others have pointed out, it's harder for demons to influence Tau directly and there are plenty of humans who are easier to sway and possess.

So mostly it's a case of why bother when you can fuck them up using their humans, or influence them through schemes or harm them through humans.

>its almost impossible for the powers of chaos to affect them

you misunderstand how 40k works

think of chaos in this way; You can be influenced in two ways: Remotely, and directly.

Now, imagine every sentient being in the galaxy as a radio. Some are more receptive than others. Tau are those busted junkers that barely get a signal

however, stick a casette/cd/mp3 in there, and it works just fine

pretty much nothing is impossible in 40k, and Tau aren't knowledgeable enough about the horrors of the galaxy to fully safeguard themselves against threats. The fact that an unassuming slab of rock (or weapon, or tomb, or whatever) could potentially harbor a daemon (let alone actually comprehending what a daemon actually is) is beyond them.

I mean, they aren't the ideal race to posses, but they do have souls, and a physical body. That's all Chaos needs

No, he's right. Go check out some of the more esoteric lore not connected to the established factions. When you start venturing out into the halo stars you find some weird shit, and not all of it is warp related.

As for the warp itself, it's unreality. It tends to function in certain ways but, ultimately, there's little rhyme or reason to it. Warp exposure can be replicated and wildly different results can be obtained. A psychic shockwave might drive men mad, given them a headache or make their heads explode. The flicker of a gellar field might end with a few crewman getting possessed or the navigator bursting apart as the Lady of the Voids is born from his flesh.

As for Chaos cults on Tau planets, I suspect Chaos cults thriving on Tau planets, especially since Chaos cults forming has nothing to do with the living conditions.

Here's what I imagine:

Some powerful being, just for the lulz of it / because Tzeentch told him to, decides to influence the Tau. One way or another, a Tau task force's Ethereals (or if there are none, the high-ranking Caste representatives) are convinced that the Greater Good requires of them to... do something that advances the agenda of whatever power influenced them in the first place.

Convincing the Tau to fight alongside an army of humans (mostly) that says it's fighting to bring the light of hope and change, equality of races and enlightened rule by liberal republic, to the Galaxy... that might not be so hard, you know?

Did someone say, STORIES?

The young Fire Warrior was truly alone. Their unit had dropped into the world to try and fight back the Tyranid hive, but they were unlike any Tyranid they had encountered before. These were... green, slower, tougher. It had taken longer then expected, but they had pushed the hive back.
His team had been sent on a simple clean-up mission, to check the forest for any remaining hostiles... but something had happened. Their Shas'Ui had fallen ill, something terrible had gripped him and he had liquidated from the outside-in.
The Fire Warrior shuddered, how terrible a sight it had been, but then it’d affected their Devilfish crew, then the rest of his team mates… and now it had infected him. He could feel it, eating at his flesh, his bones. He had stripped away his armour as it had grown too hot and uncomfortable to wear.

Now the Fire Warrior stumbled blindly, drunkenly through the dark forest. His vision hazy with a terrible fever and his body wrecked with pain, suffering and despair. Where was his backup? Why had no one come to answer their calls? Why was he suffering like this?
The pain… it was unbearable, driving him to madness. He could… hear things, whispering from the woods, from the earth, from the corners of his mind. Whispers, guttural yet, joyful whispers, speaking of pain, misery and the rotting of all things.
Suddenly, his vision cleared along with the trees and there it was, a buzzing, infected monolithic rock, standing out of the dark earth, all around it green and terrifying but somehow, his body was pulled towards it. The feeling of hot sickness resonated with his open, oozing sores and peeling skin.
Something about the sign etched into the rock, three circles, like pox mark on skin. They glowed with some… horrible, unknown, insane and yet welcoming light. He knew not why he knelt before the alter and cried, “HELP ME!”
From the rock, something came, a voice surrounded by the thousand gibbering voices of mad creatures of which the Fire Warrior couldn’t name. “Child, you are of a strange race, but you adapt so well to my gifts.”

>> No.12688968

>>12688960
“Help… me…” The Fire Warrior fell forward as the skin across his chest peeled away, revealing his rotting muscles and infected bones underneath. Yet somehow he still lived enough to hear the answer from the voice.
“Your ‘Greater Good’ is a lie, young one,” It laughed, “Did you really think it could last? It collapses even now in your mind in the face of my love.”
“Love?” The Tau barely whispered, his voice box felt like it was folding in on itself. He wished for salvation, for help, he wanted to no longer feel this pain, this suffering. He had been abandoned by his comrades and his Ethereals. He was alone and dying and nothing but the sickness was comforting to him.
“All you have to do is accept my love, my child,” The voice came stronger, louder, he could almost hear the buzzing of flies, “Be my herald to the Tau. Spread my love, my gifts and you will feel pain no more.”
The young Tau felt something as those words were spoke to him. A new strength was returning to his rotting body, spreading like an infection, every part of him felt heavier but… tougher, better. He could feel the love of this new being spreading to him. Slowly, he picked himself up from the ground, his body shaking and his breath rattling in his open lungs.

>> No.12688976

>>12688968
“Yes, yes my child. The minds of your people have been closed to us for so long… you will open them to my delights.” The voice laughed harshly, the very air around the rock seemed to be acid, the ground now swarming with worms and maggots.
“Who, who are you, father?” The Tau finally asked as he saw his once sky-blue skin turning a horrible, virus-like green.
“Spread my name, young one!” The voice roared in joy and laughter, “Go forth and give others my gifts! Bring an end to your foolish Greater Good, for your new father, for chaos, for Nurgle!”

The Ethereal looked out over the once great Imperial city. Now reduced to ruin and waste by their constant artillery barrage. They had surrendered soon after that, after all, once no building was left standing, where could their poorly armoured men hide?
He stood now on a the great spire of the coalition centre they'd build to replace their city hall. From just across the way he could see the builders of the Earth-caste tearing down a mighty Imperial temple, and the Ethereal grinned.
A wind suddenly whipped around him, and his robes flew about him, revealing a strange blue sheen to them and patterned under them were many eyes and claws.
'Good,' A voice seemed to hiss on the wind, 'Your unscrupulous planning has rewarded you with this city.'
'Thanks to your help, master,' The Tau nodded his head, 'For giving me the will to push for my battleplan.'
'Move against the commander,' The voice hissed, 'You should be rewarded for this victory, not him.'

"The Commander seems to be making remarkable progress," The Ethereal said simply, his hands holding onto the report sent to him from the Commander in question, "He says they have pushed back more of the Human presence in the sector."
"Good, that is good," The Elder Ethereal replied sagely, nodding as he did, "However," He shifted in his seat, his eyes locked onto the younger Tau, "We have heard some disturbing reports."
"Disturbing, my lord?" The younger Tau asked softly.
"Yes, reports of, how do I say, excessive behaviour from the Commander and his men," He brought a hand up his mouth, "They say he lets his men do the strangest things, like listen to loud music, have extended periods of leave and, ahem, partake in the local culture."
"Partake, my lord?" The Ethereal asked with a slightly crooked head, "As in... eating their food?"
"And drinking their wines," the Elder replied with a nod, "As I said, he is becoming too reckless. I wish for you to travel to his location and remind him of discipline."
The Ethereal bowed, "As you wish, my lord."

The Tau could hear them coming, the Orks, shouting in their brutish language, laughing as they chopped his friends apart with their dirty, great swords.
And he felt so helpless. His men, those who had followed him from the first day of this insane campaign were dying and there was nothing he could do about it.
He was weapon-less, well, almost. The great body of an Ork lay beside him, dead, but with a chipped and heavy looking sword in it's cold hand. To save himself, the Tau had been forced to shoot the Ork barrel-to-stomach, using up all of his ammo.
"Curse them," He growled, his hate for the enemy still roaring inside him. He just wanted to murder them, every one, how could they just kill his battle brothers? Those he'd sworn to fight to the end with?
Suddenly, deep within him, he could feel a sort of... heat. Like a fire being lighted in his heart and mind. The thought of those Orks, cutting up his men, laughing, taunting his pride, his battle prowess... he had to make them pay. He had to kill them all. For his brothers, for himself and for the fire that was giving him strength.
He grabbed the almost broken sword, tearing it from the dead Ork's hand. He found that it was... light, or perhaps, he was just stronger than he thought.

The Tau tore his helmet off, it was getting stuffy in there and he wanted to look his enemies in the eyes as he spilled their blood.
A name came to his mind, drifting like a great warcry from some distant memory.
As he marched out of the crater he'd been crouching in, he paused, raising the sword above his head and screaming at the Orks before him, "FIGHT ME COWARDS!" He could feel something exploding inside of him. Hate, rage, fury beyond anything he'd known before, strength lifting him and filling him more than any sermon on the greater good. "FIGHT ME AND I WILL SPILL YOUR BLOOD ON THE GROUND! FOR..." He paused, the Greater Good suddenly didn't seem so important, no, something better, something mightier came to his lips, "FOR THE BLOOD GOD. FOR KHORNE!"

Commander Farsight often spent time alone in his command centre. His Enclave had become so strong, so indipentant from the rest of the Tau. Yes their numbers were small, and what few rebels they could recruit into their ranks were often killed in raids and strikes, sometimes by their own people, but they stood strong.
His face darkened. They would stay strong, he could never let his men go back to the Empire. Never again would he let the Ethereals lie to him.
In his hand, the Dawn Blade glittered softly. In what little light the one lamp on his personal desk provided, the blade reflected with a green sheen.
It sparkled suddenly, and in his mind, he heard a soft, mocking laughter. 'Oh poor little Tau, so young, so easily lead. How long do you think you can hold out here when enemies close in all around you?'
'Quiet, demon,' Farsight muttered to himself, 'Silence your silver tongue before-'
'Before what?' It hissed again, 'You kill me? You know that I am immortal.'

'On this blade? Ha,' Farsight's eyes turned to the Dawn Blade as the voice grew louder, and there, in the green glitter of the blade, he saw him.

I have lived before the Eldar danced amongst the webway. I will be here, long after your race has been ground to dust, Farsight.'
Farsight growled at the blade, 'The Tau will find our independence! We will defeat you!'
The creature in the blade looked mock-hurt, 'You use such a harsh tongue,' He grinned slowly, 'As the creator of your race, you should be nicer to me.'
Farsight growled before finally throwing the blade across the room, hating it and yet, knowing soon he'd be holding it again. He was a slave to it's power, it's ability to speak both truth and lies and the demon who knew so much but revealed so little inside it.
In his mind he heard the Deceiver laugh, and he clenched his fists. One day, demon, one day...

Yeah, that's just bullshit. 6 different "chapters" of Battle Sisters, plus the other non-combat orders.

There's got to be an IG regiment's worth of Battle Sisters, plus uncounted numbers in the non-combat roles.

Sisters hate Eldar for being witches.

Ordo Xenos would have to be there to mediate between the two.

>>12689905

Yeah, as I said, it would be wierd. Still, more odd things have happened and Sisters and Eldar would work very well together I think. Dispite, fluffwise hating each other, they compliment each other rather well in a battlefield.

>> No.12689932

>>12689783
As well as minor orders with membership for each numbering in the hundreds.

They never say how many De-centralized orders there are, and there is the whole part about them investing troops in every fight, most likely indicating one or more per planet with significant population.

The sisters have ships. The inquisition has ships. The Deathwatch has ships. The navy can easily provide some escorts... I think it wouldn't be a problem.

So Sisters have no problem with Dark Eldar who are have no psykers whatsoever.
DE life of suffering of others but Church of the Emperor isn't above wanton murder either. And forced repenting isn't very far from torture.

The Sisters don't have anything bigger than an escort. They have the Jedi Starfighters of 40k. Not much use in a big battle besides as excellent boarders/bombers.

Yup. Ecclesiarchy and three orders of Adepta Sororitas tried to enter Fenrisian space in force, after three weeks of warring the Space Wolves forced them to retreat.

I here they Exorcised the Greater Daemon Goto from there.

They might do it just to clear their reputation with the Imperium. After all, the DE is why Eldar are considered pirates and ravenous maniacs by the Imps.

Dark Eldar have quite capable cruisers on their part, well capable of taking on their Imperial counterparts.

I don't recall there being 3 Orders of Sisters there. I don't think it ever actually mentioned the Sisters, just the Eccesiarcy.

And I imagine the Sisters could have given them a much better run on the ground, where they actually have a proper force.

Want to know how those Inquisitors got there? The Harlequins brought them, and then took them out.
You can't open and navigate the Webway unless you already have the keys and maps (or are buddies with someone that does), and the Eldar are the only ones with either of those.

Huh...ok

Damn, if the Sisters had made it to planetfall the might have actually have taken Fenris. But that would require a shakeup in fluff.

The Sisters really need a navy or a LOT more Imperial Navy Support to do that.

Black Ships are just rare, somewhat better armed cruisers with good armor, which is made mockery of by DE Phantom Lances. They're much slower than Tortures, and don't have that much more firepower.

Umm, they can do that rather well. They have some of the best scholour in the imperium. They have people that could walk up to a farseer and tell her what every rune on her outfit means, in perfect Eldar.

You know, the best part of that piece of fluff, is that it's a win for all factions. Salamanders had an epic honourable fight, and killed many foul xenos.

Dark Eldar had a great time, fighting Space Marines and each other.

I'm just going to leave this here guys:

I'm creating sum Gue'la Grey Knights, bitches of the Greater Good. Can /tg/ help with background info? My understanding is that Grey Knights are simply elite Marines, their leetness due to prowess not so much their ultra fanaticism. After all there are plenty of devoted/faithful/fanatic chapters but all can recognize the Tau as their spiritual liege, and so shall my Grey Knights.

tldr: hao to make Tau Grey Knight? The decision has been made, i'm just looking for some semi-believable fluff
