This is the codex for the 4th edition rules of Warhammer 40,000.

A young and ambitious race that is united in purpose, the Tau seek to bring enlightenment and unity to those who join them. Those who refuse will be taught the errors of their ways.

While the races of the galaxy tear each other apart, the Tau grow stronger and stronger. On the Eastern Fringe of the galaxy, far from the power of Terra, world after world has fallen to the dynamic advance of the Tau. At the forefront of this rapid expansion are the warriors of the Fire Caste. Unfettered by Mankind's superstition toward and fear of technology, the Fire Warriors go into battle carrying weapons of immense power. Many of their elite warriors fight encased in battlesuits that can withstand the fiercest of attacks while delivering highly mobile firepower.

The Fire Caste is supported by three others: the Air Caste, which provides air and space transit; the Earth Caste, which engineers and builds everything the Tau need; and the Water Caste, which ensures Tau society runs smoothly. Finally, there is the Ethereal Caste, which has led the other four castes since uniting them thousands of years ago.

Led by these mysterious Ethereals and accompanied by alien allies whose cultures have been subsumed into the Tau Empire, the Tau believe that the very stars will be reforged in the cause of the Greater Good.
