Default The TRUE meaning of Tau

Hello all,

Did you know that Tau is not only a 40k army, it is the 19th letter of the greek alphabet?
And that it has the value of 300 in greek numerals?

Just a little food for thought. Reply if you'd like.

Well... anybody that searches for "Tau" in Wikipedia is redirected to the "Tau (Greek Alphabet)" page... so yes, we know that.

Cheers.

Are you perhaps implying that the Tau are Spartans? :P

THIS IS TAU

Too bad we're not Space Marines with Pulse Bolters. Then It would make sense.

I guess.

Tau is also the german word for "heavy rope".
