So If Tau are Mammals, where are the Mammalries in the females?
Canonically they look pretty damn masculine since famous Rogue Trader womanizers are known to not know the difference on first sight.

Do they develop after actually having kids? Like rapid, sudden puberty after having or in the process of having kids?
It'd explain why Tau have so many female warriors because of the hormonal differences of men and women are minimal until they actually breed. Which would be in coincidence with the fluff that you either retire from being a warrior when you're ready to have a family or you never get to breed as a female Tau.

It would also explain why Rogue Traders have a difficulty since the Breeding females are usually closely guarded, since the Tau are extremely anal about their breeding rights.

So that would mean, by all logical definitions, that any given blueberries with tits are Milfs.
Unfortunately no pure waifus, but Milfs will do.

In the ''Fire Warrior'' novel, it's said that the ministry of propagation that gives breeding rights and assigns Tau citizens with their suitable partners.

In the Shadowsun novel, Shadowsun's father chooses retirement and gets married to a beautiful Shas lady. They eventually get three daughters and raise them in the loving home of their mansion

That's all I know about Tau love life.

>> No.33304545

Human sterilization/castration in their population is a legitimate thing. They're afraid their women will be addicted to the human dickings.

But yeah, it's kind of a big thing, Isn't population being low a really really big issue for the Tau?
I mean I remember seeing that somewhere, and Breeding right management goes hand in hand with a low population, whether it's the cause or the solution.

>> No.33304568

Ah sorry.
So it was a Commisar, but still.

Out of curiosity, is the "Y" slit for females, "I" slit for males a canon thing? Spoken or unspoken doesn't matter. As long as there are no males with Y's or vice versa, the argument can hold.

Hey hey now. Calm down.

I just figured that concern for low population would create a more "free love" environment then one that mandates getting a warrant in the first place. But then, I don't live in the 41st millennium.

>> No.33304611

No, the sterilizing was in a single ending to dawn of war, which isn't cannon last time I checked.

>> No.33304623

If you're talking about Dark Crusade (again), it specifically mentions that the people they sterilized were actively rioting and attempting to kill Tau off after the Tau took the over.

There's other evidence that otherwise humans have the opportunity to live fairly normal lives, at the least, they have had standing Gue'Vesa auxiliaries for a while and it's unlikely they captured all of them.

>> No.33304654

Breeding restriction is to keep breeding from going between castes. The tau system is built on eugenics that have been cultivated over the past thousand+ years, so any mixing of the castes would be disastrous for their current government.

Gue'vesa aren't considered an official part of the caste system, and regardless, are genetically incompatible with tau, so breeding isn't really an issue. Your average gue'vesa is far enough from actually taking a bite of the blueberry pie that it isn't really covered by laws.

Correct me if I'm wrong at any point.

>> No.33304657

The breeding program via ministry of propagation the was only mentioned in the Fire Warrior novel and no where else. It's effects on Tau population were never discussed.

The population problem bit was mentioned in the Tau in the 6e Tau dex. It was brought upon by the constant wars and hunger of the Tau empire for growth. The Tau are redeeming this issue, according to the dex, by seeking planets with huge alien populations and including them into the empire to fuel the growth and defense of their growing nation with immigrant alien hands.

The Y slits were never said to be indicative of gender in any lore piece about the Tau. Fans just assume it to be.

>> No.33304820

Well yeah, I assumed as much, since Tau social life and biology has hardly anything on it, despite the dozen dusty tomes on the organs that go into a Spehz Muhreen.

I'm mostly asking if there's anything that can deconfirm it. Even if it's a Tau Snowflake's Model having an opposite slit then the gender it's confirmed to be.

Being a lover of designing firearms, I now wonder if I can make a .22 LR dildo gun with a squeeze-activated trigger and perhaps a helical magazine that wraps around the outside of the gun.

It could basically just eject them into a tube on the side, which then pushed them forwards with the return of the bolt each time, possibly past a ratchet to keep the casings from blocking the eject. Then they'd just slowly spill out near the muzzle at the base of the dildo, F2000 style.

Possibly the most relevent thread to ask it in...

I'm going to be playing a RT game soon using the Firewarrior Class (With humans stats/lacking tau racial traits) for an Ex-Gue'vesa (The game is running in a version of the setting with a bit more Tau in that sector than normal).

The idea is that they grew up on a Tau controlled world...and defected to a Rogue Trader Crew when they got a sight of just how much force the imperium can apply to a planet it doesn't like. Sure, it's a primitive cannon compared to a Tau weapon...but there is a lot of them and they are very very large.

What would the mindset of someone who grew up on a Tau-Controlled planet, without learning about the Imperium more than propaganda be like? What sorts of things would be a completely new concept to them?

So far, I'm working on them being professional, tactical...and completely dismissive of 'Melee' as a viable way to solve a fight. After all, what is there that could get close to a fireteam with guns? They see how battle works less as 'WW1 IN SPACE WITH DEMONS' and more 'Modern Shooter/SWAT game'. It's all about cover, slicing the pie, flash and clear and being a bit tacticool.

That and very naive about anything to do with the Warp in general and dismissive of the Imperial Cult being THAT important. I mean, it's not like it's the Greater Good, just some primitive faith that smart people outgrew.

Here's the shocker, Mr. Rogers is a Tau plant recruiting worlds for the Greater Good, the Inquisitor is a Khornate agent who wants the blood to flow.

The FAMAS is not normally used by any U.S. special forces, since their standard issue weapon is usually the M4A1. The FAMAS was most likely chosen for the game due to the its blocky design being easier to render with the PlayStation engine, much like the SOCOM.

The only Tau character identified as female (Shadowsun) is decipted with the Y slit, while every male character has the I slit, so it's likely a gender thing but has never been confirmed.

There is also mention in the Deathwatch book about sterilisation of a part of the population being one of the methods used by the Tau to keep the potentially rebellious human population on the annexed worlds in Jericho Reach within manageable levels. Jerich Reach is bit of a special case, tho, being located far from the Tau Empire proper (their usually expansion strategy involves annexing worlds bordering their empire; in Jerich Reach they're testing if they can also take and hold worlds further away from their sphere of influence), so they have limited manpower availeable to deal with insurgency, especially since they're also locked in a war with Imperium and Tyranids. Generally Tau want a large amount of auxillaries as they bring additional manpower for the relatively small Tau Empire (indeed, even in Jericho Reach the human worlds that willingly joined the Tau rather than being conquered by force are treated well and have very little Tau involvement in governing)

There are some other weird things as well, such as Eldar apparently having no bodyfat or bodyfat analoques, despite female Eldar clearly having breasts (and in case of that one banshee from the 3rd edition codex, dem hips), and DE Haemonculi specifically being mentioned as having no bodyfat since they've replaced most of their unnecessary biology with drugs, poison and extra dicks or whatever (implying that regular Eldar do have bodyfat as othervise Haemonculi removing all of theirs isn't noteworthy).

The Ethereal here isn't very accurate, though. Have you seen the Ethereal models that aren't fully robed (such as Aun'va's bodyguards, or the one guy with the dumbells)? They're really buff for Tau. Femal Etherals would be musclegirs. Old and wizened looking musclegirs, but still.

On a related note, I can't decide between Earth and Air Caste girl. One has dem hips, but the other is really tall and graceful-looking.

Different Ta'u contingents, I like they're called Shas, are specialized in different theaters of combat. You can play that up.

Also I really dig the blood bonded groups of Firewarriors. A bond that goes beyond military, and they carry their symbol knife into battle.

Naturally, joining an Imperial RT crew would shatter his hopes and dreams, but given that the Greater Good is all he's ever known, there would probably be a cognitive disconnect between his bedrock presuppositions and reality.
