Personally I wonder why it gives them Preferred Enemy. Destroying the progenoids doesn't make railguns better at killing Space Marines in particular, it just means there's a greater impact on their Chapter when they are killed.

There's only one true Battle Brotherhood in 40k anyway.

The Tau Empire's kinship with the Eldar is matched only by the bonds of brotherhood they share with the Adeptus Astartes.

Yeah, well, 40k canon also says that there is no foe Tau technology cannot overcome, no quandary their science cannot resolve. The very stars themselves will be reforged in the cause of the Greater Good.

Okay, I'm going to post some actual stuff from the Space Marine codex, so people can at least know what they're arguing about.

>THE ZEIST CAMPAIGN
>In the dying embers of 997.M41, the Tau Empire began to expand with vigour. Imperial logisticiers projected that unless action was taken, the Tau would double their holdings within fifty years, and captured Imperial worlds would provide the raw material for exponential growth. By 999.M41 System Lords all across the Ultima Segmentum were screaming out for reinforcements, but the onset of Hive Fleet Leviathan, as well as heightened Chaos Renegade activity around the Maelstrom meant that there were few to send. Inexorably, the boundaries of the Tau domain continued to expand.

>Such dire events had not gone unnoticed on Macragge. Having fought at their side against encroaching elements of Hive Fleet Kraken, Marneus Calgar had a grudging respect for the Tau, but could not allow the annexation of Imperial space to continue. To this end, he despatched Captain Sicarius and the 2nd Company to the Zeist sector where they would draw a line in space and halt the Tau advance. Word was also sent to all nearby Chapters, asking for aid in the coming campaign.

Funny how you barely ever see any bitching (or at least I haven't seen it, not here) about 1,000 spess mans stopping the Tau Empire's expansion in its tracks. It's usually "bawww spiritual liege killed an Avatar" this and "Invaders killed a craftworld? RAGE" that.

Mah Tau!

I always loved that for most factions he gave them this final chance to give up peacefully. Made it all the more sweet when I go "Ok fine, taste my Railguns and Crisis Suits then!"

>The Ultramarines clash with a Tau expeditionary fleet for control of the cursed planet of Malbede. When the conflict awakens the Necron Tombs hidden on Malbede, the Ultramarines and the Tau join forces to defeat the emerging Necrons. In the wake of the battle, Marneus Calgar initiates Exterminatus on Malbede, but generously allows the Tau to evacuate before the planet is destroyed.

>Having fought at their side against encroaching elements of Hive Fleet Kraken, Marneus Calgar had a grudging respect for the Tau

Calgar secretly loves the greys.

>The Ultramarines arrived at Zeist to find the sector secure. Faced with a highly mobile opponent, the sector’s military commanders had entrenched their forces on a handful of vital worlds, leaving many planets at the mercy of the Tau. Sicarius immediately went on the offensive. His first act was to rout the Tau from the heavily embattled forge world of Praetonis V, and use the momentum to drive the invaders from the sector. Further successes followed by the score as Sicarius fought the Tau at their own game, striking with speed and precision at lightly defended targets and using the resulting confusion to destabilise more keenly defended worlds. The Tau expansion slowed, and then stopped completely. With the Tau onslaught blunted and most of the invaded worlds liberated, Sicarius’ task was almost complete – only the staging post on Augura remained.

>Speculation 4: Different tau leaders have different attitudes towards humanity.

I guess those who aren't keen on the sterilization and such can always chalk it up to this. After all, we already have a definitively canon - by which I mean from a codex - example of a Tau Commander, Brightsword, exterminating the population of an entire planet.
