Question by Chris: warhammer 40k Tau question?
i’m looking in my recently purchased tau codex, and i find a recurring thing on the unit stats, several names that have different stats, they are, “Shas’ui”, “Shas’la”, “Shas’vre”, “Shas’o” and “Shas’el”, i have no clue what the difference between these are, if you can give any real info on these names, please answer.
Answer by Phill
The Shas’la, Shas’o, and others are all names for the Tau equivalent of Sergeants. Usually in the army list entry, it will say something along the lines of “Fire Warriors: XX points for a squad of 5. +X points for each additional Fire Warrior in the unit. Upgrade one Fire Warrior to a Shas’ui for +X points.” X of course standing for the actual point values in your codex. The squad will usually benefit from the Shas’ui’s improved leadership, wargear capacity, and overall stats.
** I haven’t looked at the Tau codex in a while, so I might have confused the names – each type of unit, whether it be Fire Warriors, Broadsides, Stealth Suits, or whatever has a ‘sergeant’ that starts with “Shas.”
