Retomer's space marines fled to the Tau empire soon after the Damocles crusade. They still worship the emperor, and have varying colour schemes, often the same as the sept fire warriors they fight alongside.

Special Rules

And They Shall Know no Fear As the marines of Retomer still worship the emperor, they still benefit from the space marine special rule 'And They Shall Know no Fear' as detailed in Codex: Space Marines
Traitors All imperial units hit the Gue'Vesa marines on a 3+ in close combat. Note that unlike the space wolves' blood feud rule, the Gue'Vesa will hit their opponents by their weapons skill respective to the opponents as normal.
Inspired Gue'Vesa are so greatly inspired by the Ethereal's that if a friendly ethereal is killed, they must shoot and/or charge the squad or character that killed the ethereal, depending on circumstances, on the turn the ethereal is killed. If they are unable to do so on the turn this happens, they will fight as normal (e.g.- out of range, out of line of sight, in combat, dead.)
Fearful of Inquisitors If an unfriendly inquisitor of any Ordo is within 12", the Gue'Vesa marines must take an Ld test or automatically fall back. If there is an unfriendly Ordo Hereticus inquisitor in line of sight, they must take this test. Note that if there is an unfriendly Ordo Hereticus inquisitor on the board at all, and 'And They Shall Know no Fear' will no longer apply.
