GLOGG Game: 'Stealer Cult Vs Tau

So me and my mate Tom (He's been into this hobby longer then me) have planned a all day 'Stealer Cult Vs Tau gaming day this Wednesday. Now we will be using 6th Ed 40k rules but with a strong narrative/fluff/theme and the aim to have fun without me competive.

With that in mind here's some background:

Image

Cult of the Children
The Cult of the Children was a religious group on Darvon VI, founded by a former Assistant Navigator Sirval. It was a cloak for a Genestealer Cult which later brought the planet under its control. Sirval had been infected by a Genestealer after which he retired from space travel, settling on Darvon VI marrying and having many children.
The tenets of the cult promoted modesty and hard work, but also complete seclusion from the rest of society, and forbid its followers from travelling off planet. As much of the population were members of the cult, the planet couldn't fulfil its obligation of raising regiments for the Imperial Guard. When a recruiting force descended on the cult's isolated settlements, the Cult finally began its uprising, eventually bringing the entire planet under its control with help for an unlikely ally... The Tau.

The Tau are a young race of technologically-oriented beings from the Eastern Fringe and the dominant species of the Tau Empire. To the Tau's mistake the odd looking humans were not suitable to bringing into The Empire. The being known as the ''Hive Mind'' has too much control over them to be used for The Greater Good and muh be removed.

Re: GLOGG Game: 'Stealer Cult Vs Tau

I'm going to be running a straight Imperial Guard list for the game on Wednesday. Normally when I play 6th Ed with the Cult I stay to a GW legal codex as its normally tournament or competitive based game. When its more a friendly game I either use the CJ list (Outdated and not very good) or ally Genestealers (Not codex legal)

The reason I'm running just a straight Guard list this time is dew to my fluff, the Cult as almost been wiped out my the Tau after causing problems and most the of the Hierarchy have been killed or escaped leaving the Hybrids to buy them time.
