Default Centaur auxiliaries?

Was browsing a concept art page for the Tau and came across something interesting;

Wasn't it suggested somewhere that some centauran race was enslaved by the nids or something? And that it was possible for them to 'defect' to the Tau?

Don't remember clearly... just interesting to remember someone suggesting that and see this pic at the same time. So we could have had Taurian aux forces...

there's also a four-armed lizard man in the gallery also.
If nothing else, the Kroot know how to throw a good party.

The closest thing I recall to a 'Tyranid Centaur' in 40k is a Zoa-

[size=20pt]Purity Censorship Engaged! Burn the Heretic![/size]

+++ Vox-Recording registers gunfire, screaming, and explosions. +++

Sorry about that... as I was saying, Zoats... which havn't been seen in 40k for ages. However, they are a race known to resist the Hive Mind when their other motivation - greed - is appealed to.

Just wait patiently when Tau turned out just like French/British with their Foreign Legion/Royal Gurkha. Or like US with their 400,000 merc over Iraq under private military company like Halliburton, Blackwater and Dyncorp. We can expect new gue'vesa chapter aproved or even better, a new codex after Medusa V and maybe Demiurg next year.

Though the tactics in iraq are more chaos-like.... Certainly not much Tau'Va getting thrown around there that's for sure...

For god's sake Lunaris I I hope that GW doesn't come out with a new Tau codex anytime soon.

Games workshop is not going to roll over and give the tau a new codex on a whim- even if they deserve it (due to the innovations in technology and rapid advancement).

It will be Eldar (Who need it badly), and Orks (Who could use a polish), then who knows. If anything these auxiluries (and maybe new Gue'vesa) will see a new Chapter approved.

Tau is getting alot of mercs. I like the idea but i dont want there to be too many that they overrun our armies. I would prefer to see new and upgraded tau units to be honest
