Ukos ;)

Perhaps go through the codex and combine two tau words or someting or modify a septs name so its different but still tauish.

Eldi Mont'au, means The winged terror
 Mont T'roi, means Death Flower
The victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.

Here is a website for Tau Lexicon:

Just combine the words for a name for your army. ;D

Bob is a good name.  You should call your army Bob.

The more important question is what's the basis of your army? Then go from there.
Why, yes, I only do hang out on the fiction forums.

I write and draw stuff, so if you need something done, lemme know.

The Kayon of Fio'vash (lit. the [patient] hunters of fio'vash)

Aun'shi is my general, and i have based my entire army around those who fought along side him against the orks. The name is also an indication of my style of play, as i wait for my foes to come towards to me and get shot to pieces - rather than vice versa. Guess what, they have never lost a game for me ;D

Do you use a lot of kroot?  Cuz if you do you could seperate them from the rest of your army and call them the krispy krootons or something.

p.s. im not joking...

you could also use a name with a few numbers or letters like: TCY - 312, i'm making background for my army called: THC-303, his leader Omnicron 9 and the other Leader: Shas'o Dark Sphere, all explained in the fluff
