    Has anyone else come to the conclusion that the Tau are in fact an experiment by the C'tan Deciever. Three reasons why -

    1: The Tau are the only race to have no psycic powers and therefore no connection to the warp. Who wants to sever all connection to the warp? The C'tan of course.
    ( They also have no warp-capiable ships )

    2: When they were first discoved they were very primitive, a warp storm cut them off and protected thier planet from the imperium. The only other time that a warp storm has been so precise was when the Gothic sector was cut off by the Deciever so that the Blackstone fortresses could be destroyed.

    3: They gained a very high level of technology very fast. They undersand things that are on the same level as the Necrons, more so than the Eldar. Who commands the Necrons? The C'tan.

    So I conclude that the Tau are an experiment into creating a race with no connection to the warp. The ' greater good ' ideology is possibly the C'tan trying to create a stable galaxy ( through Tau conquest ) which they can then feed off.

    Anyone agree with me?

    Apart from the fact that the Tau do indeed have warp capable ships, except that they "skim" the warp rather than an Imperial ship might "dive".

    The only reason the Tau don't travel through warp space properly is because ' with out the specialised mutation of the navigator gene, their ships could only make short hops into the warp.'(from Codex: Tau)

    Indeed, they could go in, but never come out.

    Exacly , they have no navigator gene because the C'tan made sure they as a people were left without a presence in the warp. I suppose they could still develop warp- based technology, just have no way to control it like the imperium do.

    I'm sure there are a few Navigator families willing to crew their ships....it would be a way for the Imperium to gain control.

    They also get access to Tau technology. The Tau also need more protection against the Warp. Some Gargoyles outside their ship should help.....lol

    I have never thought about it that way. But their technology really isn't on a level with the Necrons... it's just remarkably advanced for their place. Remember, all Necron technology was developed by the Necrontyr, NOT by the C'tan. They don't really understand how it works, (with the possible exception of the Dragon) as such things are below a god. If the Deceiver really "helped along" the Tau, they would be using Gauss weaponry.

    I apoligise if i'm being picky, but you've just proved yourself wrong Deceiver. The C'tan don't understand Necrontyr technology ( gauss weapons, living metal etc ) but as they are so old and so powerfull, they are likely to be very very inteligent. They gave the Tau what they could.

    i believe the tau were created by the old ones to fight the ctan.

    they were protected by something thatcould control space storms (the old ones could)

    when they have been trying to build a warp drive they just find one.

    they're basic weapons can kill ctan.

    I suppose the morals of the Tau are very 'clean-cut' and fitting in with the enlightened nature of the old ones. But the old ones are long extinct and they always created races with some kind of connection to the warp, whereas the Tau are the complete oppisite.
