History

Farseer Tai’Len of the craftwold Biel-Tan is a formidable psyker and military general.  Tai traveled many of the Paths of the Warrior before taking the Path of the Seer.  On each path he learned lessons that make his battle plans very effective.

As a Guardian he learned the power of focused mass shuriken fire.  He uses his Guardian squads in fleet groups that are always on the move. One squad moving up while another  moves back, keeping the enemy within the firing zones of at least 2 Guardian squads at all time.  Enhancing the power of the squad closest to the enemy with a well placed Doom on the foe or Fortune on the Guardian squad while the other Guardian squads wheel around the foe.

As a Striking Scorpion he learned how a swift strike can decapitate the leadership of the enemy, causing disarray among their troops.  Wielding a Singing Spear and protected by his Rune Armor Tai’Len will take on the foe’s generals in single combat.  Wielding the powerful Executioner or Mind War spells Tai to weaken his foes.  Then provides the killing stroke with his spear.

Tai learned the power of Doom on his enemies while he trod the path of the Banshee.  The whirling blades and acrobatic movements of the Banshee are far more deadly when their target is Doomed by a friendly farseer.  A single squad of Banshees will decimate an enemy unit that is Doomed in one charge.  Tai was impressed both with how quickly a squad of Banshees will remove an enemy unit from the fray and how many more of his Banshee squad mates  survive the battle when the enemy was Doomed.

Famous Battles

In the Corconna system Tai’Len led a branch of the Swordwind against a growing Ork Waagh.  The large number of Orks they faced were whittled down by rotating squads of Guardians until the battle-enraged Orks fled.  Squads of Vypers armed with shuriken cannons harried the Ork flanks, funneling the Orks into the deadly fire zones of the Guardians.

On the swamp moon of the gas giant Serol VII Tai fought toe-to-toe with the Necron Overlord S’Zentol while squads of Dire Avengers and Howling Banshees kept S’Zentol’s Warriors and Immortals at bay.  Tai kept the tireless being of living metal engaged in single combat for hours until finally he disarmed the overlord and pierced the metal shell of S’Zentol.  The Eldar withdrew, knowing the Necrons were delayed from gaining their full strength but were not truly defeated.
