1.What do you think(or indeed know from outside source or otherwise) the Tau make of Chaos?
What I mean is do they know of daemons and Psykers or do they think chaos marines are crazy ordinary space marines with weird weapons (daemonic possesion etc)?
2.Do you think they think Psychic powers are just a weapon that they [Tau] don't have?
I think as there is no menton of chaos daemons in our codex(mainly because they didn't exist as an army) they don't know what they are/where they come from.
It would also appear that tau and Chaos marines don't meet very often or at all fluffwise which could mean they think their another Space marine faction.
Anywho, what's your opinion?
Not dead, just sleeping
I think in general tau have very little to do with anything outside their corner of the galaxy. The Farsight enclave and the tau mercenaries would be the only tau that have contact with the outside. Because the Farsight enclave they and the tau empire do not communicate, I would assume that the tau are pretty much in the dark about the powers of chaos.
I'm going to point out the backstory of Commander O'Shovah.
Arthas Moloch - An "artifact world", which had been 'purged' by the Scythes of the Emperor chapter, plays a big part in his backstory. Here, his forces fought an "unknown" enemy, to which end the force's ethereals all were killed.
Dawn Blade - This "alien" weapon, was found in the ruins of Arthas Moloch. Being of a pre-human civilisation, one could go as far as saying the shirehold was for chaos worshipers. The weapon itself, could have been made dedicated to Khaine ( Eldar ) or to the destructive forces of Khorne.
" Its sculpted surface flickers with unknown energies that paint glittering arcs of destruction as it is swung..."
After the events of Arthas Moloch, and the continued hunting of ork forces, Commander Farsight refused to return to Tau and set up his on colonies. This could be taken, as he was touched by Knorne. Making the Dawn Blade, a weapon with a demon bound inside.
Other than this, there really isn't any notion the Tau know of the Chaos Powers. If I'm correct, their system is not even close to the Eye Of Terror.
