The Tau Empire is a race of Warhammer 40,000.
From Games WorkshopEdit
"The Tau are a fledgling race, still considered young by comparison to the other forces in the galaxy. Through a policy of aggressive expansion they are rapidly enlarging their empire, inviting any they encounter to join them or die. On the battlefield they use incredibly advanced technology to compensate for their meagre physique, preferring to destroy the enemy with ranged attacks where their dynamic battle tactics and superior wargear can win out."
