This seems like the prefect thread to ask this question I've been walking around with for the past few days.
I'm a bit of a Warhammer noob, but I really love the Tau and would like to read more about them in novels. I already bought For The Emperor as it takes place mostly on a Tau planet, but I'm wondering if there's any other books focussed on the Tau?

Also, are there any books NOT about the Imperium of Man? Humans are kind of dull..

I wanted to pick up Tau last edition because I liked their fluff and I enjoy shooty armies, but couldn't because I lacked the monies for GW's prices.

Now that I have some money, the Tau got updated and they're one of if not the most powerful forces in the game and are getting backlash from it. How do I play Tau without being called a cheesemongerer?

By the Greater Good, what did you just say about me, you savage Gue'la? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Third Sphere Expansion, and I’ve been involved in numerous surgical strikes against the monstrous Tyranids , and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in wearing XV-88 armor and I’m the top Hammerhead pilot in the entire cadre. You are nothing to me but just another target for my markerlights. I will decimate your entire army with precision the likes of which has never been in the history of T'au, mark my words. You think you can get away with saying that to me over your backwards vox network? Think again, Gue'la. As we speak I am connecting with my secret network of drones across the Tau Empire and your every move is being watch right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the valueless little thing you call your life. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can shoot you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my pulse rifle. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Tau Empire and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable face off the face of the universe, you Mon'Tau filth. If only you could have known what obscene retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you blind fool. I will rain fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re dead before you even started, kiddo.

Objectively speaking, aren't the Tau the only "good guys" in the Warhammer universe? Everyone seems either intent on total destruction of all life, or preservation of only their own particular brand of life at any and all costs.

Hey /tg/, how about a Tau thread?

Also, I'm wanting to start playing Tau. I'm looking at buying a battleforce at the moment, and this is what I guess it'd come down to:


Commander Shas'el
- Twin-Linked Plasma Rifle
- HW Drone Control Unit
- Shield Drone
- Targeting Array


12 Fire Warriors

Devilfish Troop Carrier
- Smart Missile System

12 Kroot Carnivores


3 Shas'ui Stealth Suits
- Fusion Blaster

TOTAL: 501pt

To expand towards 750 points, I'd upgrade my HQ to:

Commander Shas'o
- Twin-Linked Plasma Rifle
- Shield Generator

2 Bodyguard Shas'vre
- Twin-Linked Plasma Rifle
- Flamer
- Targeting Array

And also add a 6 man pathfinder team (using the devilfish that I used for the Fire Warriors). My plan is just to infiltrate these, and have the Fire Warriors take their Devilfish, can I do this?

Is this a viable list, teegee?

Hey guys,

I posted a while ago regarding my first 40k Army, that being Tau.

I've got 2 full squads of FW, a Fish, 4 Crisis Suits, and 6 Stealth Suits, and a Hammerhead.

I'm just looking for some general advice as to how to properly utilize this army. I know I'm not going to win outright, but I'd like to at least chew people apart before they even get close.

Furthermore, I've come into some extra money recently. My friend has suggested that I get a very basic (read: 1 Elite and 2 Troops) Space Marine army to get acclamated, but I know the Tau are due for an update, and I don't want to spend money prematurely, especially since I have no Heroes in my army.

tl,dr: halp?

Hey guys.

I posted a thread yesterday regarding my first 40k army, which is Tau.

Figured I'd share the limited fruits of my labor with you all. I'm gonna touch them up tomorrow.

I really want to come up with a backstory for the poor bastard in the back and the retard up front, so if anyone's bored, maybe you can all come up with something for fun?

And thanks to whoever it was that helped me out in that thread.

Hey guys,

I'm a first-time 40k player. I went on over to the 1d4chan wiki, asked around other places on the internet, and went to my local FLGS for suggestions and summaries of the different armies.

I chose Tau, and have the Battleforce, Hammerhead, and 3 Stealth Suits (from Ebay for like 15 bucks)

Am I fucked?

Tau here. I fucking hate Space Marines.

Now I know what the Ethereals tell us. They're the elite forces of the human imperium, a bit like our Crisis Teams. And you know what? It's true. They're damn tenacious bastards and have some pretty impressive firepower (for humans). Thing is; they're such gooddamn assholes about it.

Y'see, I'm part of the Third Phase Expansion push, under Commander Shadowsun. So, about 200 years ago my great-greatgrandfather liberated this planet he called Ta'u from a bunch of orks. As usual, those barbarians refused to listen to reason, and after he killed enough of them the rest just took off on one of those primitive spaceships of theirs, a 'rok' or something. Dunno where they went, don't really care either.

We were still celebrating when a whole bunch of humans showed up, claiming this to be an imperial world before the orks overran it. We told them they were more than welcome to repopulate the planet, of course, as long as they accepted the Greater Good and lived alongside the Tau colonists.

You think they accepted our entirely sensible offer? Uh-uh. Instead, they just landed on Ta'u without permission and spread.

And spread.

And spread.
