I voted No Psykers, if they did have them they would be Gue'vesa, imo.

Agreed, its part of their whole feel, so I had to go with no.

I voted for as a new race, but that's only if they had to have them, otherwise I'm against it.

I voted for the anti-psyker equipment. A new race...yeah, I could see that, but I personally see the Tau as the type of faction which would be able to adapt and make up for their shortcomings via technology(though maybe from a different rance). Not so much "here's race x, to fill shortcoming a.

And a slight note:
The technology would not be dependent upon the Warp. Maybe a lazer-light show to bedazzle the enemy psyker.

yeah, I'd have to say, especially after Medusa 5, they'd create a anti-psyker weapon/equipment like the null field generator.

I voted for Anti-Psyker technology because the aspect of the Tau Empire that I like so much is its penchant for innovation and its lack of fear concerning the creation of new technology. I think this would be the most likely way the Tau would counter (what they would see as) the bizarre psyker phenomena.

I honsetly much prefer that the Tau have no counter to psyhic powers. There has to be at least one frontier that they simply cannot contend with their enemies in, and I think that the superstitious, arcane Warp is the best front to put that handicap on.

Tau have pretty decent tech. But blocking out the Warp without the use of psychic energy requires technology that's so advanced it's ridiculous (ie: Necrons).

Fluff wise, it'd be through a new xenos race (though they already have examples of some in the empire already). Anti-psyker tech. sounds plausable too, though I'd imagine such things would be hard to make given the tau's lack of knowledge about the warp.

Game wise, I say no psykers for Tau. It part of the character of the army.
