Back during the halcyon days of the major conquests of the Tau Empirethe majority of the army’s victories could be attributed to a single commander: The Dawn Blade is made of chronophagic Greek for “time eating” alloys, so whenever Farsight kills something with it his life is extended as the blade steals the life force of its victim and adds it to the wielder’s.
Like any distant colony, much of the equipment and armour used by those within the Farsight Enclaves is slightly dated — the equipment most prevalent at the time of Farsight’s disappearance.
He’s also still a beast in melee, although he’s not much good against larger targets – his sword may be AP-4, but he’s only got 5 Strength to swing it with.
This must be the reason why Orks fear him, since this prompted them to scatter and run away. Included in this page softback book: I am changed, an outcast now He’s not meant to be a one-man or one-Tau badassery show, though; have him work together effectively with his elite battlesuit brethren for best results.
Although with 7th ed he isn’t needed for a massive blob of mechas to rain from the sky, he merely provides the means of entry, and beacons can do the same already.
The T’au Empire launches many probes towards what the T’au have named the Forbidden Zone, the cluster of star systems beyond the far side of the Damocles Gulf in the Eastern Fringe, although few have ever returned. Ads by Project Wonderful!
I think there was a bit of confusion there because I believe Games Workshop alluded to that being the case.
After studying with Papa Puretide himself, Farsight was made the leader of a massive Tau fleet and sent out to do the Empire’s bidding. Puretide’s three farsigbt pupils Farsight, Shadowsun and Kaisall aggressive commanders with a bitter rivalry between them, were chosen for this. Considering he killed a lot of Orks who are biologically immortal and daemons who are truly immortal with it, it’s safe to say Shovah is practically immortal right now.
On top of that, Farsight, along with his retinue of samurai—uh, I mean battlesuit aces, is now a beatstick. During this drawn-out campaign against the Orks, Farsight and his Ethereal advisors ended up on the dead planet of Arthas Moloch, where a swarm of daemons was summoned after blood was spilled on a strange altar.

Farsight is back at it again with his Red Crisis suit! Contents [ show ]. Retrieved from ” https: Supplemeent his first deployment as mission commander, he performed amazingly, trouncing the Orks singlehandedly with skill and cunning. While popular fluff-wise even among non-Tau players for his badassery and generally cool backstory, Commander Farsight wasn’t actually all that useful on the tabletop at first because he came with a shit ton of limitations, like no auxilaries, tanks or Pathfinders and so on, and his massive bodyguard blob was too expensive and risky.
It was decided that the 440k would work in decades-long fadsight, with one awake and two asleep at all times, kind of like the three vampire lords in Underworld were supposed to preside over the coven in turns. Then all of sudden chaos shows up and kills all of our Ethereals.

If those in our heartland had witnessed the savageries of the void as have we, they would know this.
Though they were running scared away from the Enclaves, Farsight refused to let them escape alive, farsifht set about hunting down the remaining Orks which conflicted with the Ethereals’ primary objective of capturing more worlds and created tension between them and Farsight.
His Tau-standard plasma rifle and BS5 are merely supplements meant to soften the enemy up before he charges in or, rather, jetpacks in to get to slicing and dicing with the Dawnblade, which is pretty easy with WS5, S5, I5 and 4 attacks.
Though this led su;plement some bad bloodFarsight moved past it, becoming a famed commander in his own right. There has been, however, unsettling evidence of classified technology and recent T’au prototypes present within the Enclaves. Scans from those few T’au probes to successfully beam back signals reveal a string of heavily built-up worlds with large populations, including nodal cities expanded from colony domes and entire moonbases converted to manufacturing.
Sign In Don’t have an account? The Ethereal High Council has forbidden all travel and communications to that sector of the galactic west. After the Damocles Crusade, Farsight was tasked with rebuilding a series of lost colonies that had been overrun by Chaos forces.
