I've been thinking alot about my Tau army over the past few days and reading all the threads about new units/characters.
To this end i thought up the Tau could use something similar to heavy weapons teams in the IG armies. With weapon options including, Twin-Linked Burst Cannons, Plasma Rifle or Missle Pod. The heavy weapon teams could be either a team of 1-3 or 1 per Fire Warrior Squad.
As for a conversion, i see almost a gun drone on a bi/tri-pod with one gunner and a spotter.
The other idea is for a complete human auxillery army, but i havent thought all the possibilities out yet.
Heavy weapon teams have been thought of, check the other topics. As for the Human Auxileries. I can't really see them getting their own army, as the Tau would have to keep them in check, to prevent a heresy of the Greater Good.
I like the heavy weapons thing but i really dont see a human aux full army but i would like to se it expanded.

Those heavy weapons sound alot like the eldar to me, and frankly I don't think they're needed.
I think the Tau are good enough, (BS aside), as sitting still and shooting. The tau rapid fire weapon pulse carbine has to be used like a Heavy weapon anyway, or most of its value is lost.
What they need is a higher BS to use what they have, and then some more mobility. That's my oppinion, anyway.
I don't think that mobility is really an issue but definately the BS thing...
But yeah like the idea, sort of a heavy gun drone type thing on a tripod...
As Papabear said, a "heavy weapon team" like you are suggesting sounds just too Eldar. I HATE the Eldar. Damn elves!! Although I did kick there ass in CC with my suits though....That made me happy!!!!!
Yeah *looks forlornly at Eldar army collecting dust* *sigh*
I think the eldar could be cool, I like hard core elves in fantasy, but GW has run the eldar into the ground so far as I'm concerned. Girly models, weussy this and sissy that. :lol:
Their fluff hints at a cool direction for them, the mighty dispossed lords of the galaxy, with technology and power and skill that surpasses all, but fortune has dealt them a fatal blow and so they're slowly progressing towards their final doom. But, after that, they tend to lose their nobility imho.
I mean, the eldar rangers who get ambushed by the kroot in the Tau codex, they're crying! NO! :o :unsure: NO! There's no crying in baseball, er, when fighting the kroot.
