Probably they will find some REAL assault units, which will make the Tau truly, in all aspects, undeniably, without a doubt, as sent by an angel from heaven above- awesome.*

But that'll never happen, so I hope that the kroot just become a mercenary unit for all races and not so much attached to the Tau.* I never really liked the kroot, and still don't but maybe if like the Tau got official Human Auxillary unit models, I'd be happy (I hate conversions).

Really? Maybe Orkzez. That'd be fun!

I think Hrud will be taken in. Or those Dog-Soldiers I have heard of.

I think that should it not be humans it'll be a new race since no other race seems like they would get into the hole greater good thing... actually i think human are a bit too selfish too so it has to be a race that don't really care what they do like the kroots...

Frankly, I doubt there will be any 40K additions to the Tau. Tau are already shooty, as well as being pretty darn mobile, and the Kroot fill their assault niche... there's nothing left to do.

Currently, there are three races we know of allied with the Tau officially:
Kroot
Humans (Gue'Vesa)
And them ones in BFG that I forget the name of...

Since Humans fill the cannon fodd, er, I meant, the role of... of... uh... something. Cheap half-decent all rounders, thats it, and kroot are the combatty ones, meaning we have shooty-ok-choppy fufilled in the troops section, Tau are finsihed... bar the lack of certain units actually piloted by Tau and the flaw that is the Pathfinders.

Biel-Tan!? They're the most xenophobic Eldar in the galaxy!

Oh, and Del: the guys you're thinking of are the Nicassar. However, it seems the Demiurg have also joined the Greater Good...

i think 2 forms of auxiliary availaible to tau at the moment is fine, any more and some armies will just lose the 'tau' feel....i want tau armies to be full of tau units are the odd extra. If you ask me where Tau could do with more stuff (which i doubt they'll get but hey...) is more weapons options in fire warrior teams and proper fast attack unit that doesn't have heavy weapons and is FAST!! maybe some sort of jetbike or new battlesuit, sniper units perhaps....but my main hope for the future would be that fast attack option....so many tau armies are mechanised and fast...yet they dont have any fast attack options, something i think gw have got a bit wrong when they thought up pathfinders....
