Because they looked cool. This should be the only criterion when choosing an army if you like the rules but you think the models suck you will not like building or painting your army. The Tau looked the best of all the choices so they got my money.

I chose Tau for several reasons:

-- Cool Models, They just look high tech rather than the kleenex box tanks of the SM
-- Cool Fluff, I really like the greater good and hunter aspects
-- Overwhelming firepower and speed

Because combat is dumb, in the 41st millenium.

the one and only reason i choose tau, everything else looks dirty and poor.

u look at a space marine rhino, or anoother tank. it doesnt look clean, or iffeciant.(did i spell that?) it just looks like sumthing all oily and out of a dirty garage, they also look mean and all the guys look liek they want to hurt u (altho they do...)
now look at a devilfish. it looks so advanced, arrowdinamk, but not pointed, its round and clean looking. the troops dont look dirty, they look organized, effitiant.

also, think of what year it is. the year 40,000, i think that we could get ALOT more technolagy then that in 38,000 years. the tau however look like how technolagy shuld be at by this time.

i like all the tau models ACCEPT the crisis suits. i possitivly hate them. they look like bulky square robots, they dont suit tau at all. also i hate the new stealth suits. the new stealth suits do not fit in with the stealthy type of thing. but i do think they look like a crisis suit, they shuld be the new crisis suits, not those square looking older ones.

yoriaki - spell check dude, two doors down from the post button.

I love the crisis and the new stealths. I was going to leave the Tau for IG when the rumours of new tau came around and the models have made me want to stay.

Like a lot of other people said, they look sweet.

Also, I like the style of warfare. It seems like this is what modern combat would be translated to in the 41st millenia.

Plus, who doesn't like a bigass gun in every trooper's hands? O0

I chose Tau because:
When they turned my beloved Blood Angels into a close combat army in the last addition they needed replacing. I am a very shooty commander.

I thought they were very anime/Japanese looking and looked nothing like the other armies in the 40k universe. I have been obsessed with all things Japanese since I was 6 and found voltron on TV.
