Fire Warriors are the core infantry of the Tau Empire and the backbone of their rapid expansion into Imperial held space. Highly trained foot soldiers that will fight to the last man for the greater good and are armed with various devastating energy weapons more advanced and deadly than what other races can bring to bear. Fire Warriors are broken into two types of squads, either Strike Teams or Breacher teams, each with different weapons and tactics to complete their objectives.
Strike teams make up the base gun line of infantry that will be sent to capture and control vital objectives and set up defendable positions to whittle down incoming enemy charges with their mid-range pulse rifles. Breacher teams are the Tau's answer to shock assault warfare, armed with deadly close range pulse blasters that increase strength and armour piercing the closer they are to the target. Protected with an MV36 Guardian Drone these soldiers venture closer than most other Tau dare too.
Supported by various drones and platforms that provide additional protection or long-range missiles capabilities, the Fire Warriors are a brave and sturdy force that provide a key role in any Tau army.
