The T’au are a dynamic species of technologically advanced aliens whose empire is spreading rapidly across the stars. Aboard sleek ships piloted by their void-dwelling Air Caste, the T’au explore the galaxy and seek to unite every sentient being for the Greater Good. In the breakaway colonies of the Farsight Enclaves, the legendary Commander Farsight himself ventures aboard drifting space hulks, cleansing them of threats to his people.
Boarding Patrol: T'au Empire provides mobile and heavily armoured infantry, perfectly suited to overwhelming foes in games of Warhammer 40,000 – especially in the dense and deadly Boarding Action missions detailed in the Arks of Omen series – and will save you money compared to buying the kits individually.
The divisive and enigmatic Commander Farsight stands at the head of this assault, blasting through opponents in a blur of blade strikes and blazing fire in search of his prize. Behind him stomp three sleek XV8 Crisis Battlesuits – the ultimate balance of firepower, speed and resilience – and ten Breachers, Fire Warriors who use close-range, high-powered pulse blasters to clear the confined corridors of a space hulk.
This set includes the following:
- 1x Commander Farsight
- 3x XV8 Crisis Battlesuits, which can alternatively be built as Crisis Bodyguards
- 10x Fire Warriors, which can be built as either a Strike Team or a Breacher Team, plus 1x Support Turret
- 8x Tactical Drones
- 3x T'au Empire Infantry Transfer Sheets, containing a total of 555 decals.
This box can be used to assemble a variety of units – the recommended build for Boarding Action games is Commander Farsight, three Crisis Battlesuits, and 10 Breachers split into five-model squads. You can optionally also add one unit of four Tactical Drones.
All models are supplied with their appropriate bases. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and require assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Colour paints.
Rules for playing Boarding Action games of Warhammer 40,000 can be found in the Arks of Omen: Abaddon supplement. Additional rules for T’au Empire Boarding Patrols can be found in Arks of Omen: Farsight.
