I dislike the Tau fanbase that wants to shove them in everything. The Tau are too small to be relevant. Eldar Craftworlds are at least all over the galaxy, Tau are contained to the borders of Ultramar on the ass end of the galaxy.

Tribes of the Chaos wastes worship all manner of gods (hell, according to some claims all the gods in WHFB are just the Big 4, except Sigmar) and have all sorts of themes to them. Same with Beastmen. GW just can't cater to every nuance of their persona, so we're left with the most generic and most distinguishable features.

You're one person out of TRILLIONS of other humans. There are more humans on a single hiveworld than there are Tau throughout the entire empire.

What? The Damoclese crusade was a minor force and it ground the Tau Empire down to a stalemate, which is exactly what the Imperium excels at. The Tau can't handle attrition, they don't have the billions of bodies to throw in the meatgrinder that the Imperium does.

Also, most Imperial worlds are their own culture and run by their own style of government. All the Imperium bothers them with is that they have an Imperial Commander (governor), pay tithes and raise their own PDF. Many worlds don't even know of the Imperium's existence. There's plenty of worlds where life is perfectly normal without any oppression from the Imperium. And you have people who have risen from the ground up, like Creed. You really see Tau letting some smelly alien rising to such power he could command armies? Fuck, they limit even their own people. 1/5 of their species is dedicated cannon fodder. What's the chance a human will end up serving the Guard? IG takes the top 10% of planetary PDF. And that comes from what the planet deems fit to serve as their defense.

>> No.27887026

It's heavily implied that the Tau higher ups mind control their people. Do they do the same for their allies? Also, how are decision process for the Empire? Do only the Tau make decisions or do other races get in and have their say?

I like the fact that people see Tau as the good guys. I thought that that was kind of the point. It just shows their propaganda and rhetoric is working.

Every decision they make is self serving. Every good act is to manipulate. Every oppressive act is hidden.

Apart from Farsight but then most factions has a few good apples.

I think I read somewhere about cast council that make internal decisions. Ethereals don't need to decide everything all the time.
Also kroots seem autonomous. I think other races still have their own political system on their worlds. Again, there is no need to control everything all the time, just what really matter.

I don't know, they are pretty stupid from a fluff perspective as well. Yes, they are Orwellian communist enough to fit the NO GOOD GUYS ALLOWED theme, despite some of their fans' inability to comprehend this. But they are so fucking insignificant, tiny and powerless.
They are like the new comic relief faction after Orks became all grimdark, a bunch of hopelessly weak and naive fools that only continue to exist because no one powerful really care enough about them.

either because they have a weird sexual attraction to them or because, since tyranids are as genderless as 40k gets, they feel like they'll avoid getting tagged as "trying to fit in" or "being a slut", if they play nids.
