Default The Eldar will never ally with the Tau

i don't know why there seems to be so many people who think that the eldar will play love dove with the Empire. the tau believe they represent the new that will replace the old while the eldar are the old that won't die peacefully- the tau believe everyone has the potential to live in harmony and under the guidence of the the tau'va, meanwhile the eldar openely destroy races and entire planets for divinations and prophecy that no one else is privy to. the eldar are pridefull and the tau are sacrificing- they're opposites in almost every way- someone answer why their union is so likely.

yes but the eldar race is dying out and they would surely ally up with the tau as they are their last resort to not dying out. the eldar are arragont but* i dont think they'd be so arragont that they wouldlet their race die out. plus the tau are naive and farseers and their psychic powers should stop the tau from seeing that they are being used.

i don't know, eldar seem arrogant enough to die so that imps don't even know why they aren't telling them about the planet they destroyed to kill the great grandfather of the guy who will be drafted into the guard and will eventually shoot the guardian before he dives in front of the farseer.

wont you get smited for that cos its irrelevent and does'ntmake sense so isnt that spamming???

aaany way i like the idea of eldar allying up with tau it sounds realistic plus i collect eldar and (very soon like in sveral months) tau. its more likely eldar allyup with tau then orks or necrons etc.

The Eldar are utterly alien to both the Tau and mankind.

This is where the problem lies; we are human, and we attempt to put human logic, human values and human opinions to the Eldar situation.

Thus, most people are utterly wrong. The Eldar will not ally for the same reason people don't eat dog faeces off the street; it is a filthy and disgusting concept.

the eldar are arrogant=they would'nt sully themselves with helping a lesser race unless it was to help them. they consider their surivial to be a cosmic joke- there all about killing Slannash now- really, thats the goal of the craftworld Eldar, to give it one last go and kill that which killed them. its kind of romantic i guess- but anyway, concerning the tau, no, there would be no reason the Eldar would join with them, i think Imran- that your just putting two qualities of a race that make them strong or weak so that they cover for one another
example: the tau don't have psykers, they should ally themselves with the Eldar who are the best psykers. this method of thinking eventually gets you to- the imperium is falling apart, they shoul ally with the tau so that the water caste can put them back together- it just doesn't work.
its all about culture and religion.

That is not the Craftworlder's goal. If anyone, it is the Harlequins who seek to destroy Chaos, and they are exceptionally good at it.

Craftworlders as a whole work towards the restoration of the Eldar Empire. Only the means and machinations change.

well put Wargamer
see- this is where your not getting itImran, the tau have joined up with orks before- and have only recently (perhaps) begun fighting the Necrons but won't be able to negotiate with them. Eldar will not join with the Tau because they consider it to be, well... eating the poo off the street. just think of the arrogance they have for living and surviving so long- them some up start race no better then humans tries to form a treaty? they would probably puke.
the only times that eldar have joined with humanity is because humanity usually is about to mess things up and they have to correct it or their grand design "kill slannash" will be messed with.
and- on a side note, notice how the Eldar don't seem to be that concerned with killing 'Crons, its all about putting the foot into old pleasurballs ar$.
~good hunting
ps: no- that is the goal of a single craftworld. its the Exodites which have been reclaiming the maiden worlds and are the seeds to which the empire might have a chance at another go at it- Craftworlds are concerning themselves with survival and hitting Slannesh- there already working to rebirth a god that might take all their lives. the farseers are the priesthood of the race and its they who took the trade ships that lead away from the Eldar Empire before the fall, the communities that have since been formed want nothing but revenge, and they'll do what they have to to get it.

But how would the eldar live to see the next decade without allying up. they are a race slowly dying out an the only way to survive would be to turn their whole armies into WG or they ally up with tau or hire kroot mercs. other then that how else will they live on.

edit: oh yeh exodites i was posting at the same time.does that mean we will see more of the exodites (sorry going a bit of topic). but then why are the eldar described as the dying in the W40k rulebook.

Exodites never went to the Maiden Worlds. They chose the most harsh and unforgiving planets they could, so that the hardships they suffered would hide their soul from Slaneesh.

Craftworlders do not hunt Slaneesh. She is their greatest enemy, but they do not hunt Chaos. Only Ulthue can lay claim to that goal, due to its proximity to the Eye of Terror.

Craftworld Eldar seek to reclaim the galaxy. The Dark Kin use the galaxy as a playground, the Eldritch Raiders are probably little better (although more merciful and less masochistic in their endevours), and the Harlequins spread the legends of the Eldar... as well as slicing Chaos into very tiny pieces.

The overall view of Chaos for the Eldar is the same as the Imperium; it is an enemy to be utterly and mercilessly crushed. However, they view Orks, Tyranids, Necrons, the Imperium and (presumably) the Tau in the same way... they want the galaxy back, Chaos is just one enemy in their way. They will not truly go full tilt for Chaos until the Raha-Dandra.

Please... they have survived for over ten millenia after the Fall, I doubt they will die out in a decade. Typical Tau arrogance.
