Either because of Riptides, or they just feel that Tau don't belong in 40k, or both?

I dislike the Tau fanbase that wants to shove them in everything. The Tau are too small to be relevant. Eldar Craftworlds are at least all over the galaxy, Tau are contained to the borders of Ultramar on the ass end of the galaxy.

I also wish GW would focus more on the fact that Ethereals mind control the Tau.

The main complain is that they don't fit in thematically, and were only added to attract the Asian market. Also they are a very minor faction who were created from nothing, when more established factions were ignored (primarily the Hurd).

Even in LotR the dwarves were stubborn and prone to holding grudges.

What's so dumb about the Slaan, how are they any worse than say elven high mages?

The empire has such a college of wizards because if they didn't, they'd get raped by anything magical.

You do know that warbosses aren't just random warriors, right? Each one is a figure of martial excellence that manages through cunning and strength of will to keep one of the most unruly and dangerous forces in line. Getting sucker punched by one will suck for everythong.

It also have to do with the fact that their stories almost always follow this mold

-We are Eldar. we superior. Nothing can harm us. We will ignore this threat even though we were warned about it and could see it miles away (Coming DOOM)
-By Isha! How could we not see this coming? Damn our pride and hubris (Imminent DOOM)
-Oh the eldermanity! Woe is us. So much precious Eldar lives are lost Baaaaaaaw (THE DOOM)
-HAAAAAAAAAAAAALP. Who could save us? Is this our final hour? (DOOM intensifies)
-Worry not, I am Hero whatishisface longears and I brought with me a Deus ex machina (DOOM averted)
-The Aftermath follows two routes :
a)Bittersweet ending. We triumphed over that unforeseeable threat but we lost so much and we are DOOMED anyways
b) ''Just as Planned''.

I actually very much like the new Tau. Their models could be more like Blance's sketches, but otherwise the fluff is starting to get gritty enough. The whole "no concept of family ties", not FTL, dudes kept in ice for eons only to serve when they're needed, fucking up left and right, using fission power (and irradiating soldiers in the process), etc.

Warhammer 40k is supposed to be a kitchen sink of fantasy tropes dressed up as a vague parody of various science fiction shows and universes.

Tribes of the Chaos wastes worship all manner of gods (hell, according to some claims all the gods in WHFB are just the Big 4, except Sigmar) and have all sorts of themes to them. Same with Beastmen. GW just can't cater to every nuance of their persona, so we're left with the most generic and most distinguishable features.

You can make any style you want. I do like cleaner Chaos too and my CSM have been made with mainly loyalist bits that have been painted and decorated in a style most fit for fleet based Chaos corsairs.

That's what makes in scary. It takes something easy for all the laymen we never hear of in the setting to fall into and then forces them to crank the dial up to 11. How would you like it if there was some mysterious force that pushed you to murder every time someone even slightly annoyed you or rape any moment you were even slightly aroused.

The Tau is not a better alternative. You're betraying your species for a fledgling and ignorant foreign power that doesn't have any idea how the galaxy works outside of what the mindcontrolling ethereals and secret police tells them.

The Tau are NOT better than the Imperium. You simply can't compare the quality of life in the tiny empire to a million world spanning human empire.

Also the Emperor is a very real god, the Tau can't explain the miraculous abilities of His faithful servants like Sisters of Battle and their Living Saints.

You're one person out of TRILLIONS of other humans. There are more humans on a single hiveworld than there are Tau throughout the entire empire. If you think everybody in the Imperium has the life of an oppressed forge world worker or underhive city then you're silly. The Gue'vasa (which is Tau for Helper Human) are used as propaganda propped up by the water caste to coerce the weak minded and lost. You'd be one of them.

A pipedream that has kicked the Imperium's ass every time they tried anything more substantial than taking lightly defended border worlds.

The Imperium is a rotting, bloated carcass that's awaiting its inevitable rupture as the gases of its decomposition destroy it.

The emperor, if he's even aware, is a tortured figure interred as a vegetable and subject to worship that he despised in every form to justify the rulership of people that want nothing more than for him to stay that way for eternity.

You're thinking of the immediate problem. There's bigger things at play than your comfort and "subjugation" and "oppression". The Emperor and the Imperium are playing the long game. They're looking to making sure humanity actually survives. When we're not besieged by aliens and monsters, and preyed on by daemons and heretics, then maybe we could ease off and build that paradise. Tau have it easy, they're a tiny ass empire barely a blip on the radar, cocooned in their own little world with no idea of the shit going on out there.

It's easy to not be scared when your looking down at them on a table top, if you were one of those tinfoil guys you would be thinking about the incoming mutilation, rape, and then super STD that turns you into a newt. and then his armor comes off him and does the same thing to your buddy. all because theirs the asshole behind you who owns you and can get a god to stomp on you if you don't listen to him.

What? The Damoclese crusade was a minor force and it ground the Tau Empire down to a stalemate, which is exactly what the Imperium excels at. The Tau can't handle attrition, they don't have the billions of bodies to throw in the meatgrinder that the Imperium does.

The Tau have done nothing but prey on unguarded Imperial worlds with subversive diplomats and propaganda or outright invading them in the 3rd sphere expansion while the bulk of the Imperial forces were off in Armageddon or Cadia.

I'd love to see the Tau try to crack Ultramar.

Also, most Imperial worlds are their own culture and run by their own style of government. All the Imperium bothers them with is that they have an Imperial Commander (governor), pay tithes and raise their own PDF. Many worlds don't even know of the Imperium's existence. There's plenty of worlds where life is perfectly normal without any oppression from the Imperium. And you have people who have risen from the ground up, like Creed. You really see Tau letting some smelly alien rising to such power he could command armies? Fuck, they limit even their own people. 1/5 of their species is dedicated cannon fodder. What's the chance a human will end up serving the Guard? IG takes the top 10% of planetary PDF. And that comes from what the planet deems fit to serve as their defense.

"When the Imperial fleet reached the Tau Sept world of Dal'yth Prime, however, the Crusade ground to a bloody stalemate as the formidable numbers and high technology of the Tau and their Kroot allies thwarted every attempt to capture the world or its star system. Many months of terrible fighting ensued with nothing gained on either side."
Attrition is where the Imperium wins its wars. The crusade was called off because of Hive Fleet Behemoth.

Also they way they acted when the ethereal died was to stoically march against the enemy lines firing forming a line of hate, somehow like the guys in Zulu.

Now, in lore, they are just brainwashed 1984 yellow japs who shout banzai and act like the zombies from WWZ (the movie) when the ethereal is killed; and evolved from cows.

Also they got the retarditis like most of the universe and instead of "mobile warfare/disregard bigass mechas in favor of air supremacy" they are "Hold the line or shamefur dispray by samurais in robots"

What is the life of an "average imperial"? You just pull the shittiest examples and use that vs. the fancy clean planets of the Tau. Imperium has whole worlds kept for their beauty. They got worlds where people live their lives not even knowing about the Imperium. You look at the most oppressed and stretch it out to cover the entire Imperium.

I think they can go through the webway, but the webway is more like a tunnel system, so they need to make sure they use a passage with an entrance, exit and an entire passage big enough to fit the entire craftworld the whole way through.
