Default Tau and Trade Federation (Star Wars)

I was watching Star Wars Episode 1, and reading my Tau Codex at the same time, and noticed a striking similarity between the Trade Federation and the Tau Empire. The picture that most resembles them is on page 23 of the Codex. Anyone else see the similaritys?

You mean the Nimordians, the chaps who are the head of it? Yeah, I totally see that in some of the Tau faces - it tends to be older looking Tau, but yeah, I do.

Guys, on topic please.
Or I should close this thread, as it seems to have served its purpose?

I see your point, but its still about Star Wars and The Tau. Its not too off topic, really :-\ But i'll try to go back right on topic, if you wish.


I actually haven't seen the movie in a while so i cant quite tell, but judging by memory, i can kind of see the similarities... A bit... :P
