I noticed that in the history of the Tau, they've absorbed some human colonies into their empire due to abandonment from the Imperium. Because of this, I was wondering if it's at all possible to include maybe some Imperial Guardsman or something in a Tau army?

You could do what I do. Im using imperial jungle fighters instead of kroot. Mostly because I dont like the look of the kroot but thats beside the point. I think thats probably the closest you can get.
But this only reallyu works if you just want the visual effect. And as a slight taunt to the IG players you face. but thats beside the point.

Judging from this I'm pretty sure it's possible.

I recall in 3rd and 4th Edition they made a rule for using Human Auxiliary. I have a copy of the rules on pdf.

I have the 4th edition Codex and don't recall seeing anything about using human auxiliaries in your army. I would be happy to be proven wrong, however. I'll take a look through it again and see if I can find anything. Andrew would it at all be possible for me to have a copy of those rules? It would be greatly appreciated.

I think in apoc games the gue'la are alot like guardsmen, although I belieave they have an improved version of the lasgun and improved armour. they may also take pulse weaponry.
