yea, well, i think what he's getting at is what new tech will GW release. Though, they did just put out the rail rifles. Though i too want to know what they will put out next for the tau

Many things are to come...

The imperium is especially interested in the Ethereal. They want to capture one very badly and slice him open and figure out what makes them tick. The Ordo Hereticus is especially interested in this due to the possibility of some latent subdued psychic grasp that they seem to hold over the other Tau (not confirmed, but speculated!).

I think if the Imperium of man really wanted the Tau gone, they could do it no problem. When it comes down to it, the Imperium outnumber the Tau so badly that it would be all too easy to destroy all the known planets too easily. The Tau are rapidly pushing their technology forward to fight this threat (hence the Rail Rifle).

The Tau have not had contact with the Warp yet. So until then, I think the Tau will not change very much. But in the future, should the Tau contact the Warp, then I think major changes will occur or at least a lot of truth will be known. As for the Tyranid, I doubt the Tau will see much of the Tryanid for a while or at least until the Tau branch out more. The Tau are still a very young and very small race after all.

Several things wrong with that. Firstly Tau have contacted the Warp. Their ships make short warp jumps. Second tho the Imperials outnumber the Tau VERY VERY badly they cant do **** with that. The Imperial forces tho vast are overstretched as it is. They couldent raise the force neccecary to crush the Tau even if they wanted to. Im sure if they had a total grasp of their full deployment they could, but...

With the Imperial forces numbers a total mystery and constant invasions from EVERY other race save the Tau alone the Imperials have enough on their hands without bothering the Tau.

FW came out with the Tetra, Pihrana, drone turrets, heavy gun drones, and air caste crew. I would like to see GW officialize these and produce proper boxed sets. The units from FW are very good and expand the Tau army very well.

About Imperium crushing Tau: it prob is possible, but they aren't interested. If 4-10 SM chapters unite and attacked the tau, the tau would have a hard time.
But thats my opinion.
