Default New Servitor Races for the Tau

I was wondering if anyone has thought about some other potential races that have Joined the Empire for the Great Good like the Kroot, and Humans. I was thinking it would be interest to add a planet of Feral Ogryn for heavy weapon and close combat capability. Been trying to think up some other races that could join the Tau. Make it kind of like the Alien Legion from Epic comics.

Theres already the demiurg and nicassar that aid the tau in space. (bfg) Dunno what they look like, but nicassar are psychers, and demiurg are cowardly.

The demiurg have vessels that have many more gun batteries than any tau battleship, but they run away when damaged. and nicassar are just kindof there...

So yeah, crappy.

Demiurg ships are also more heavily automated than those of other races. Once they become damaged beyond a certain point, there is little they can do to help, even if they have not suffered terminal damage.

Plus it fits in the Gothic style of play: only an idiot or a madman continues to fight once the ship is crippled...

Cool, I would love to see some 40K stats for these races, since I don't play BFG.

Hmmm how about exodite eldar? No, then craftworld eldar would get mad. *Or tarellian dog soldiers from 3rd ed. rulebook.
Here is made up stats for Tarellians: 10 pts. each 5-10 *0-1 Troops choice
WS *BS *S *T *I * A W LD Sv.
4 * *2 * *4 *3 *4 *2 *1 *7 * 4+
weapons: stun guns (close combat weapon) and snare guns rng. 12 in st. 3 ap2 assault1 (armor won't save you against a net) up to 2 can exchange their snare guns for pulse rifles or pulse carbines at +5 pts each.
Special rules: Fleet of claw. If a unit of Tarellians wins an assault it may only consolidate as it is tieing up its prisoners. *Any enemy 'killed" by a tarellian is worth +1 victory points. *(Even if its necrons or tyranids as the tarellians will sell them to people who want to do experiments on them)
Fluff:
The tarellians come from the impoverished world of Kar'yn. *Because they need money and are naturally bred to fight, they have become mercenaries who fight for the highest payer. *In this case the Tau have found them and have offered supplies to aid them if they fight for the Greater Good. *In battle they don't kill their enemies but capture them and sell them as slaves to the highest bidder.
