I read a large number of WH 40K and WH Fantasy blogs, and sometimes I am frankly amazed at some of the articles that pop up. So when I see one that piques my interest as it relates to Tau, I will direct your attention to it, and then probably proceed to piss on it.
I recently noticed a rant over on BoLS about how our beloved Fire Warriors seem to have everyone ducking for cover these days. This is understandable. IMHO I think the only feeling that is worse than one of our squads being assaulted is being on the receiving-end of one of our gun lines.
The article is amusing, and well-written. I'm not sure about the whole reference to deaths caused by the Nazis/Communists thing, but whatever. In the words of American rapper the Notorious B.I.G., "Chedda breed jealousy." By "chedda" he means wealth and power, but for Tau it means Firepower, and Tau definitely have the chedda in that regard. So let 'em hate.
On a serious note though, the author does point out some important strengths and weaknesses in the Tau army, and goes on to tell his readers how to prepare for combat against Tau. We would be foolish to ignore what our opponents are thinking as they prepare for war against us.
Hence the saying: "If you know the enemy and you know yourself, your victory will not stand in doubt." (Sun Tzu)
We are Tau.
