iv been reading alot of 40k books lately and i realised there seems to be little or no books that
are about Tau or even have them as a large part, infact the last time i remember them or their allies being mentioned was when a Kroot working for the Inquisition helped some ork hunters find an imperial officer on Armageddon in the book Conquest of Armageddon but no book is about the Tau or Kroot, but they would have very interesting stories.

last chancers book "kill team" has alot of tau in it, though its not from tau perspective....
Space Marines are the gateway drug
If everyone makes fun of West Virginia, who does West Virginia make fun of?
Don't forget the novel firewarrior, its one of the only novels done in unison with a video game but it is still a tau novel told mostly from the perspective of the tau. (Though a tau capable of being corrupted by chaos is very unlikely.)

And despite being written by Gav Thorp, seems to not really understand basic Tau background. IIRC at one point he describes pulse weapons firing bullets, and rail guns firing energy.Originally Posted by Inquisitor Rosario

Not alot is known about them and the game designers want to keep it vague so that new units and such can be created and brought into the game. They are not like spacemarines there they are defiently laid out . They way they got around that is by saying there is a 1000 chapters so there is some artistic licence there. Same with the guard. Nids are all basically the same. Orks are well.... Orks..... wez kull em n eep on cummun backz for morez bigz skuffs...
FluffMaster on a mission to turn people to the Sisters of battle, yes folks it's all about SoB squads in Repressors with lots of flamer templates for the win.
I found it to be much better than I expected...a very good read from the black library compared to a lot of stuff from the black library.Originally Posted by LordVelhelmVonMarrius
I don't think Kais was possessed as much as having a mental breakdown. He wasn't manifesting demonic appendages or anything.....
