I'm sure by now we're all familiar with stories of UFOs: Big, silver disc-shaped spacecraft, bearing big-headed, wide-eyed grey skinned aliens who come to earth to make circles in our crops and kidnap us to examine the contents of our underwear. So whats happened to them? Do they have any place in the dark millenium? Where are Mulders Reticulans now?
"You're very interesting, and very perceptive. So interesting, and so perceptive, in fact, that we shall now fight with KNIVES!"
"I've been dead long before you were born, and I'll be dead long before you'll be dead!"
For every race you get to chose from in 40k there's about a million races that are only mentioned in fluff. The Galaxy is full of all sorts of different creatures, far too many races to keep track of. It's very likely that the "Greys" are still floating about somewhere in the 40k universe, perhaps off in some small pocket of the galaxy where none of the other races will bother them, or they interact with the other races but are simply one alien race among millions and not important enough to mention specificly. It's a big galaxy, plenty of room for tons of aliens to be lurking about.
Ever noticed that the Tau look sort of like Greys?
A Tau army painted all silver and grey so they were like 50's UFO guys would be awesome.
Yeah, the Tau do kind of look like the greys...
Well, letsee.. what happened to the real greys though. (Is the 40k universe even supposed to be the future of our universe?) Knowing how the grim darkness of the 41st millenium is, they probably made contact with the human race soon after humanity took to the stars, then traded with us and helped our technological advancement. They were benefactors to our race for tens of thousands of years. And then the Emperor took over and one day in the middle of the great crusade, a human ship entered their home system. They put out the welcome matt and sent greetings over all frequencies. And then we virus bombed their planet.
Thats what they get for analy probing us.
Either that or they were conquered, enslaved, and eventually eaten by the Orks.

"They did what to Graznog?! Tha's it ladz, get ready for a fight!"
lol! Although I dont see why tau shoud fly around anal-probe other creatures. First of all, I imagine that anal probes must require the tau prober to be right next to the victim, which I consider terribly unfluffy for tau. Perhaps they load rail rifles with probes? That would be far more fluffy, and explain why pathfinders need to be flown to the back of the enemy lines in a fish, and shoot the enemy from behind..
