Trivia / Fire Warrior

  • Defictionalization: Sort of, Games Workshop later published rules for using the Rail Rifle in regular 40K, as well as a special character profile for Kais and a scenario based on the Descent mission.
  • Follow the Leader:
    • The game takes more than a few nods from Halo: Combat Evolved, such as the two-gun limit, and recharging shields (despite the fact that Tau fire warriors have nothing of the sort)
    • Note that the two-gun limit is far more irritating than it was in Halo, simply because you could not replace your Tau weapon with anything — which made it a bit of a pain when ammo was scarce, and you couldn't cling to your trustynote  stolen plasma gun.
  • Name's the Same: The war commander of the Tau in Dawn of War: Dark Crusade is called Shas'O Kais.
