say what you want about them they stand their ground in most fights

I'd like to see how a platoon of Firewarriors does against a Tyranid infestation...probably clear it faster than the Imperium

*Coughs* Gentlemen I am inquisitor Xorion the V of the ordo malleus. I have been sent here on behalf of the inquisition to make negotiations with the tau caste for supplies, if you do not cooperate then I will order this kill team to gun you down like the cowards you are and take your supplies by force. Have I made myself clear?

Because if you read the lore a lot, you will know, that Tau (sorry for my bad English) are very "democratic" and "liberal" society. They hyde their true nature under masks. Theire politics to other reces is like: take our fancy jewelery, and give us your planet, and live in reservation like savage after that. Or: join us and became close-combat meatbag, to help our gunners shoot from distance. Or: forget about your roots, forget about your ancestors, serve us for food and promises of eguality and democracy. Parody to USA - warmongers under mask of peacebringers (nothing personal to USA people).

True. I always liked that about the Tau- They're not the strongest or the toughest or the most badass, but by the Ethereals they'll stand their ground.

Well one shot to the middle and the Tau have one less human to deal with. As for the Space Marines, well. That's a different story. A short one, but a different one.

Campain idea.
Your inquisitor is sending you to "negotiate" trade agreements with the tau, This order is coming in Directly above your inquisitors head (Inquisitor lord). He wants your team to successfully complete this mission with nothing going wrong.
*pull aside a player*
He is tasked with F.U.B.A.R. ing the entire mission, but must look like failed negotiations on the tau's part. The inquisitor feels that his superior is making a very ill choice and there are much more....options. (this could be to the affect he wants to trade with eldar, orks, or just wants his superiors credibility to drop)

Thoughts?

This sounds like an awesome campaign idea! Especially if only one of the team members is tasked with messing up the negotiations without the other's knowledge. It will be even more interesting if the rest of the team is threatened with harsh punishment should the negotiations fail for any reason. I can see lots of very interesting conflicts resulting from this.
