>>65777228>Sorry but you are mistaken. Splinters are not a threat to the T'au Empire.
Bullshit, even in the fucking Tau codex Hive Fleet Gorgon was a serious fucking threat as stated >>65776936
They were so fucking desperate to hold the tyranids back that they made a deal with Dark Eldar (and then thought they could double cross the DE).
The Domacles war utterly fucked up the tau. Read the fucking lore, Even Crisis of Faith, Farsight admits that it was a complete tactical loss against the imperium, and the only saving grace was that the Tyranids became a bigger threat than the tau. Even after the imperium pushed in to the core worlds of Tau. And the Tau immediately broke the truce to reconquer the enclave worlds. And it only took a couple space marine ships to utterly decimate the majority of the tau fleet sent to retake the enclave worlds.
The Tau got fucked by Kraken, Gorgon and is now dealing with Scitalis as >>65777096
