Default Orks serving Tau

I posted this in the orks forum but I thought it would be good for the Tau players for their reponses.

I'm really surprised at how funky that looks. It reminds me of a friend's Orc character who was gradually becoming more and more like a Dwarf after fighting so many.

However... I can't see it ever being taken seriously.

I always thought that the Tau would hire Ork mercenaries if the Ork gave an offer. I like the idea, though the Photoshopping on the Ork makes me want to be sick.

I think Tau and Orks go together like Peanuts and Bubblegum.

Orks want everything Orkie. Tau want everything to fall under the greater good. Orks respect strength and the WAAAGH. Tau respect wisdom and planning over strength and action.

Also Ork technology wouldnt even function if not for the WAAGH. Theyd do about as well with Tau tech as a chimp would with a BMW.

Tau hired Ork mercenaries in Kill Team.

The idea's not totally out there, but I can't see the Tau gifting Ork auxiliaries with a ton of their equipment...

In this one fanfic I read, Tau had succeeded in taking over the galaxy (pretty much) and they spliced ork dna into Tau dna and had Shas'O forgot his name "Fo da greata good! Waaaaagh!!!"

Orks working with another race? Blasphemy.

The Orks will do mercenary work, but their economy is not really based on anything the Tau would be willing to give them. If the Tau wanted to hire Blood Axes as mercenaries, they would almost have to give them weapons and equipment, since they can't really pay them in teeth.
