Sniper T'au

It was okay, i might want more story than what was given here. It is about a soilder very short and a not very engaging. The best parts are when it's about his memories back on a sept world.

crouching tau hiden railgun

an excellent stand alone short story of a single skilled tau sniper. this is an excellent intro into the Tau for newbies or an old Shas'o.

Great performance, basic story

The voice acting, audio, etc, were all excellent! But the story was short, basic, and only of interest if you are into 40k.

ending makes me tear up

I have about 30 wrahmmer dramas and this is my favorite. excellent sound quality and diversity great music and ambience it's like 3-4 stories in one that follow the same character good plot, sort of memoir of tau sniper and experiences he had alone or with a squad. the ending makes me cry

Good stories

Entertaining. Stories were not long to flesh out characters within, but for just over one hour runtime how can you.

For the Greater Good!

I really enjoyed both the short stories, it gave insight into the trials and tribulations of the average fire warrior. It shows all the reason why I like the Tau - the naive optimism, the collective goal, bravery in the face of overwhelming odds. I may get stuck from people for being a huge Tau fanboy, but i’ll stick by my (plasma) guns.

Absolutely brilliant, as if written by a real Tau

The use of drones and in game lore made this book great. You really feel like you are following this Pathfinder through the mud and blood to find his vengeance. Though the story has flash backs which could be made to be more separate from the story. sometimes you think you are listening to current events and then it turns out to be a flash back which can be quite confusing. Even so, still a brilliant book well worth a read 😊

For T'au!

Really enjoyed this performance. If you've played the Dawn of War series you'll recognise a lot of the sound effects used.

Nails performance of Tau

Excellent voice actor to portray the Tau. Sound effects also make this a great listen. My only complaint is the Space Marines die far too easily in the story.

Short but entertaining

A good short story. Great production with sound effects and multiple voices. Great for any Tau fan or WH40K fan.
