Tauren or Touren are a creation of someone over at A.T.T., I think. They are a more common conversion trend lately, mixing Tau parts with the Beastment line from fantasy.

Sorry if I am completely wrong, but do these by any chance have any relation to the Tauren race from world of warcraft? Sorry if this was completely random, but I had a strange thought today that they would make sense allying with the Tau.

Possibly, but it probably just comes from the Latin word for "bull", which is of course where the Warcraft name came from. Very little in Warcraft wasn't adapted from something else.

gnomes are cute. Tau arent.

so by definition, gnomes deserve death, then the tau need to incorporate the night elves into the greater good.

I approve of this.

Nothing more.

Well, Blizzard does take ideas from other games. Take zergs for example, tyranids anyone?

But anyway, I hear people use Stealth suit rules for Touren, apparently, they can use Burst cannons, and they are usually kitted out with jet packs. But I'm not sure, maybe Touren have special stealth abilities or gear?
