Default Sect Special Abilities

It occurred to me the other day, that unlike most other races, Tau have no access to psychers, no vows (or similar abilities), no subgroups (aka like Space Marines to Dark Templars), and I got thinking.

Shouldn't there be some sects that you could declare yourself to be a part of? Different sects could have access to slightly different abilities. Also, I understand that the Tau barely register on the warp at all, and their minds just aren't capable of psychic abilities, but shouldn't there be something that they can do? What about adding some kind of priest/religious miniature?

I could be just completely crazy, but tell me what you think.

what do you think an Aun is, maybe in the next dex we will get sept ruls but not until then I think, anything further on rules really will belong in house rules

theres not a lot you can do with te list bar have alternate FoC so its not a big deal IMO, the list aint broken that badly and we have farsight if you want a sect.

Kinda off topic, but when do we get the new Codex: Tau? Anyone have a foggy idea?

Probably about two years, if the release schedule is as predicted. We may get a listing in a campaign book before then, though. The Tau and the Necrons are due for one.
