Farsight’s BACK – New Codex Enclaves REVIEWED – Bell of Lost Souls
Meanwhile ShadowsunFarsight’s old rival, was awakened from her cryogenic stasis in the Empire and sent back to war, and Farsight assembled a new team of elite battlesuit pilots, The Eight, to defend the Enclaves and stand opposed to the mysterious power the Ethereals held over their brethren.
In addition, some of his fellow commanders were implanted with Puretide engram neurochips by the Ethereals to make them as tactically capable as Puretide; however, Farsight found this horrifying when it turned his 40o into robots with no will of their own and made them 40kk useless when psykers were involved since Puretide had never encountered them. Special councils, composed of Ethereals and auxiliary guards, are despatched to question any who are rumoured to have contacts or sympathies with the Farsight Enclaves.
Farsight’s band of battlesuit aces. If your foe can come close enough to negate your striking power, all stratagem is lost, supplemeht when all stratagem is lost, the battle is lost. Farsight is back at it again with his Red Crisis suit! On top of that, Farsight, along with his retinue of samurai—uh, I mean battlesuit aces, is now a beatstick. From there he decides it’s best to just never speak of ‘those weird xenos’ that showed up out of nowhere and vanished into smoke just as quickly, good thing not warning anyone else about this sort of thing never comes back to bite anyone in the ass later.
No one said going your own way was easy. He set up a series of worlds that would become known as the Farsight Enclaves. Retrieved from ” https: Over a hundred years later, the Enclaves came under threat from a Tyranid splinter fleet.
The hand of each of the great starfarers is turned against the other; none will join their strength together just to see their ancient enemies prosper. Included in this page softback book: But seriously, based on its age and eldritch abilities, the Dawn Blade is most likely a C’tan artifact or leftover technology of the Old Ones.
I think there was a bit of confusion there because I believe Games Workshop alluded to that being the case. This page was last farsigth on 21 Decemberat As more information has come to light, the actions of Commander Farsight have become the source of grave concern for certain members of the Inquisition who perceive a distinct threat to the Divine Rule of the Emperor of Mankind in the actions of the T’au. Many in the Fire Casteespecially those from Vior’la, maintain the image of O’Shovah as a trailblazer, although none dare show such dissent openly in the presence supplemdnt an Ethereal.
In this costly battle Farsight discovered an ancient sword called the Dawn Blade, as well as statues bearing medallions that somehow repelled entities of Chaos. These colours are a reversed version of the colours of the Vior’la Septthe Tau Sept where O’Shovah was born and grew to adulthood. Farsight quietly left his battlesuit in a museum and went to be a hermit, fearing that a second Mon’tau would occur if what he learned ever reached the Empire.
This didn’t sit well with everyone, especially members of the Fire Caste, and contacts within the Empire soon began secretly supplying the Enclaves with new weapons and hardware.
During the fight, however, the daemons singled out and killed his Ethereals, but not before they revealed to Farsight that they had known about the ancient evil of Chaos, but lied to the Tau public about its existence for the sake of the Greater Goodkind of like what the Emperor did in the Great Crusade.

Time will tell whether this is the result of spycraft, theft or traitors to the Greater Good who have been aiding those within Farsight’s domain. After the events on Arthas Moloch, Farsight understood the terrifying menace of the Immaterium and Chaos, farsitht to him explained a great deal of what he had seen during his exploits.
It has some great graphics from but not much is new here. When sighted generations later, these forces and fleets bore markings similar in design to those afrsight by the T’au Empire, but in colours and patterns never sanctioned. Finally, after a long and bloody war, the Imperium of 40j had to pull out when the Tyranid Hive Fleet Behemoth reared its grotesque head in the Eastern Fringe and headed straight for Ultramar.
One day, though, a probe discovered that the Enclaves were still there and flourishing, and had changed their sept markings and become Ethereal-free. Learning this, the Tau Empire branded Farsight a traitor and renamed the Enclaves the “Forbidden Zone”, smashing all his statues throughout the Empire and trying to wipe him from public memory.
This revised and updated supplement to Codex: Here’s the Tactics page. 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.
This must be the reason why Orks fear him, since this prompted them to scatter and run away. 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. He’s also pretty durable; basically a Space Marine captain with an extra wound: Think Seven Samuraiexcept with mecha and one more samurai.
On the rare occasions when warriors bearing the distinctive red armour and markings from the Enclaves are seen within the T’au Empire, the Ethereal High Council has issued high mobilisation orders, although there have yet to be any confrontations.
Some of them have page numbers but some do not because it says what it is in the formation listing itself. Though he was unhappily reassigned to another battle zone before defeating the Orks completely, Farsight met with the Ethereal Aun’Shioff of whom he modeled a style of close-combat battlesuit fighting which he applied for years afterwards. The limitations got removed as of the 6th edition codex, however, and Farsight can now even bring Ethereals with him even though fluff-wise Aun’Shi is the only Ethereal he’d associate with.
