Default Becoming a threat yet huh?

Stupid imperium of man should have killed us when they had the chance, okay well with the release of the new codex and new models (vispid peeps) is the Tau empire the new most popular army and will it take over the might of the imperium?

The Tau are still too small a threat. They are one decent Crusade away from extinction.

Bring it! I reckon that would be a neat 40K campain and with the new tau dex coming out it could be on the cards.

Bring it on. Maybe my friend is worse at IG than I am at Tau, but I've gone games without casualties, wiping out his puny guardsmen, even letting him assault over a toxic river by rolling on toxic barrels (ala Simpsons)... of course, I said he could make it across on a 6. Tau arn't that bad at assault... O0

Wargamer is right. A good crusade and the tau are done. However, seeing as to how popular the tau are, this is unlikely. They'll mumble something about the imperium needing to run and get some nids or something.

Hahahahaha, no. The Imperium just cannot come and get us. Sory they just cant bring up the resources, with Tyranid invasions and the Eye of Terror taking their attention we are low on their priority list and they just cannot muster the size of army they need. Besides we bite back hard and are a good bit bigger and more populated since the last invasion.

Game wise Im not afraid of any Imperial army, they can bring it if they want, just more marine kills for my armies tally. The only force I have trouble with is the veteran IG armies and I dont see that many of them. Let the Imperium come and give us more Gue'vesa for our ranks.

GW really should do a campaign, in the galaxy the Tau are not that big but everyone seems to think that makes us insubstantial, hey the Eldar dont even HAVE an empire and yet they were a big part in the Eye of Terror campaign with the Ulthwe Strike Force and what not. We at least have our own territory. Really the Tau are popular enough we should really be a major player in the next campaign, even if its not set in Tau space, it should be nearby and with Tau one of the big players. Imperium vs Chaos, chaos vs Imperium is just boring, we have been there and done that, WHATS NEXT!!!

I wouldn't have said that Tau constitute a major threat yet to the Imperium, however with the New Codex GW will try and sell Tau, therefore I expect them to have become a little larger and on the right end of a few whippings.

Indeed a large Imperial Crusade could probably wipe them out...if it ever got there! But anyway I think part of the appeal of the Tau is that they are a small, fledgling race that is new and developing, yet fragile and always vulnerable in the big universe.
