The Tau Empire is notable for its rapid technological growth in a galaxy where progress is largely non-existent elsewhere. The [[Imperium of Man]] first discovered the Tau at a neolithic level of development six thousand years ago and had planned on conquering them, but a series of freak warp storms destroyed the Imperial Fleet ''en route'' and isolated the Damocles Gulf from interstellar traffic. Four thousand years later, after considerable technological evolution, the various Tau clans were united under the rule of the Ethereals and -- shortly after that -- the Tau developed their own interstellar travel and established themselves as a small but powerful empire able to resist a crusade by the Imperium of Man. Currently, the Tau Empire mantains an uneasy peace with the Imperium; the Tau Empire continue expanding onto the Imperium's various fringeworlds, but the Imperium pays little attention due to the larger and more pressing concerns posed by the [[Ork]]s, [[Tyranid]]s and forces of [[Chaos]].

The Tau Empire is notable for its rapid technological growth in a galaxy where progress is largely non-existent elsewhere. The [[Imperium of Man]] first discovered the Tau at a neolithic level of development six thousand years ago and had planned on conquering them, but a series of freak warp storms destroyed the Imperial Fleet ''en route'' and isolated the Damocles Gulf from interstellar traffic. During this time the Tau were divided into various factions that warred with each other in a period of Tau history known as the Mont'au (the Terror). Four thousand years later, after considerable technological evolution, the various Tau clans were united under the rule of the Ethereals and -- shortly after that -- the Tau developed their own interstellar travel and established themselves as a small but powerful empire able to resist a crusade by the Imperium of Man. Currently, the Tau Empire mantains an uneasy peace with the Imperium; the Tau Empire continue expanding onto the Imperium's various fringeworlds, but the Imperium pays little attention due to the larger and more pressing concerns posed by the [[Ork]]s, [[Tyranid]]s and forces of [[Chaos]].
