This is a train of thought that was sparked on my way home from work.
A while ago I was speaking to @Wargamer
about Books of Chaos* and how Khorne has respect/favour for Ork Stormboyz due to their potency and viciousness in combat being controlled by their want to be "regimented" and the like.
This got me thinking of what this could mean, and the idea came up that what would Tau do with "indoctrinated" Orks at their disposal? Would they be a further acception to Tau Doctrine of disdain for combat, or would it be reflective of a Commander or Coalition making use of the resources to hand?
Could Orks be trained in the Tau'va, and how would it affect their ability.
Fluff questions said, then their is Tabletop questions, such as where in the FOC would such a unit even be? Would their be some sort of "Orkish Drive" table the Tau player must roll for the unit in order to keep it in check? Would the unit be granted Tau weaponry?
In terms of fluff i'm not sure if it has ever been covered beyond the old story of Tau trying to convert Orks as a whole to the Tau'va, but failing due to their Chaotic nature, but as you know Stormboyz are adolescent orks being rebelious be doing drills and being orderly. Something that Tau Fire Caste probably do during peacetime or whilst they're at the Fire Caste training academies.
What do other people think on the subject?
[spoiler=*Books of Chaos]In third edition 40k, Chaos Armies gained specific benefits for feilding armies in a god or Legion specific way, the God focused tactics were written in the "Books of Chaos" a special section of the Chaos Marine Codex. These sections gavedeeper insight into what it meant to follow a specific gods path.[/spoiler]
