I am just curious to know what inspired, attracted, appealed or drew you to the Tau. For me it would be their playing stlye and the clean anime look to their models.
Pure and simple, it was the hammerhead. I had no idea how to play, but i was interested, so a friend lent me his Tau codex. I looked through it, and when i saw the hammerhead, i thought it was just plain beautiful. For awhile i debated between Tau and Necrons, but in the end the I chose Tau, just because of the tank.

I used to play guard. I fought against a wraithlord (actually 3 of them) and all my heavy weapons were down. my infantry's weapons were so week. I picked up the tau codex and noticed that the Tau was basicly guard but with better armor save and more powerful weapons.
If you charge a bunker and die, its called being reckless, but if you charge the bunker and win, it's heroic!
the CRISIS! i took one look at the crisis and i was hooked.

I play berzerkers. I picked tau for a second army because they were so far to the other end of the spectrum of the game.
I picked the Tau mainly because of their look. I did'nt know how to play 40K at the time I selected to play them pretty much the day they appeared in online stores. I still remember taking my new codex over to my friends place (they knew nothing of the Tau since they were brand new) and them freaking out when they saw the railguns. Overall I"m please with my choice. There is no other army I'd rather play.
I'm pretty much the same as liquid phoenix. I was new to 40k and really like the way to tau models looked, and I've been really happy with the way they play.
I pick Tau for 2 reasons 1. because they looked cool and 2. because thats the army my best freind pertty much decided for me but it turned out great!

I have Tau because of their firepower, and rail gunz. I love rail gunz
The clean futaristic look of the tau and their highly advanced weaponry drew me in but the thing that got me hooked was the little film in my mind of a guy in %$%#$ awsome midnight blue stealtharmour with a pulse minigun and a jumpack.
Ghengis Khan and the Chinese emperor
Ghengis: bow to me or ill kill you
emperor: as the peaceful lily offers shade to the weary silk worm i would welcome death
emperor: no matter how the wind rages the mountain cannot bow to it
Ghengis: what the hell?
emperor: as the sun finds rest after a weary day* saying interrupted by emperors head getting sliced of.
