Default Fantasy empire goes tau empire

As the title says i am a empire player who recently finished his 2250 empire army.So i should soon start on my second army.Before i start buying and painting i need some info on Tau since they are the most likely candidates

1:As a race how do the act.Are they bloodthirsty,violent or peaceful,fight to protect and that c..p

2:Are krot mandatory or can you field a effective army without them(i hate the miniatures)

3:My tactic with the empire was 65% of the army is infantry and shooters waiting for the enemy while the 35% are mounted and harass and brake small units.Can this be used as a tau tactic

4:Now for the visual look.Can they be set in a urban envirement(bases)and have a dark grey colour scheme.

Well they pretty much justify there actions of war because it is for the greater good. So they are like a futuristic fanatical group. many slants on how they can be seen to act though :/

Hmmmm, if you replace mounted with smaller vehicles, e.g piranhas then yes probably. But one major problem, the only real close combat option you have is kroot and we have established you don't like them :P

Plus you can't really apply fantasy tactics to 40k sadly

Wouldn't it be cool to see ranked up space marines :P

1: The last two you mentioned

2: They aren't compulsory, but they are one of the few close combat units the Tau army have. But you don't need to use the Kroot Mercs, you can just use the rules for them, but use different, better looking models.

3:Very easily.

4: Again, very easily

Hope that helps and welcome to the forums.
