Description[edit]

Tau Zombie squads were the shock troops of the infamous Manei Domini. These "Zombies" had access to the best cybernetics the Word of Blake could provide: Myomer muscles, prosthetics with built-in weapons, advanced optical sensors and pain shunts. Zombie Squads were known to butcher entire platoons despite having suffered horrific injuries, and would never retreat from a battle, preferring to go down fighting. During the Jihad, no Tau Zombie squads were ever captured alive.[1]

Armament[edit]

Each Zombie Squad had access to the best weaponry and strength-enhancing armor available. Mauser 1200 Laser Rifles and Heavy Support Lasers gave these terror units frightening amounts of firepower.
