I was wondering what the storyline would be for the second expansion. If anyone knows, pls post it here. But until then, it would be cool if it was on the eastern fringe of the galaxy, and the space marines and Imperial Guard are trying to stop the tau from capturing a planet there. But at the end, the tyranids would come and the Tau, SM and Imperial Guard would have to work together to stop the devourer from consuming the entire system. But this is subject to change because we don't know what the second race is, might be necrons. Then... Imperial Guard stumble upon a massive Necron Tomb on a planet and they are having fight back the necrons until help arrives. The tau would come in half way through and would be neutral, but eventually fight the necrons. Any ideas, pls post here!!

well my lil bro has a tau codex book thing. in response to what the first post said there was a story of the tau and space marines needing to team up to defeat orcs. however i dont think that they should follow that story considering that orcs have kind of been used already. having he tyranids though i think is a good idea. the tyranid would kind of be like survival though. either way it would be cool

I have the tau codex as well, I haven't seen that in there. Be great if a tau team got stranded out of their liitle outpost area and were being hunted by the nids. Would give a "Are they behind my troops, or infront!" feeling. And it would make it more eerie if the planey was being consumed around them.

Eastern Fringe is likely, since the Tau are on that side of the galaxy and are starting to exapnd. Nids are highly unlikely - they've said they won't appear in an XP because the game engine can't do them justice, so I can't see them bringing them in for the campaign either.

As for who fights with who - I can't imagine Marines fighting along side Tau. Guard, possibly (because some do become Auxiluries) but Marines are more likely to stick to 'Xenos Scum' and kill them. Working towards a common goal while not working directly together might be possible, but considering how we're not even certain on what the last race are, everything is even more guesswork than the comments on which race will be in it.

My idea: THe TAu land on dead world - begin to colonise it. Pathfinders sent out, don't return. A force of Orks arrives to stomp teh blueskins, followed by the Crimson Fists. THe Orks withdray after the boss is killed, but a force of scouts discover a groupof ancient pyramids. the pyrimids explode, revealing monoliths, who unload their force of NEcros. The Space Marines and Tau have to hold out long enough for the Imperial Guard to arrive en mass, and the necros are destroyed (attacked on 3 sides...)

That is the best story so far! It would make sense as well, because the Tau are expanding and such.

I posted something like this on the Relic Forums. I don't feel like explaining, so to bad.

Here's my idea from another thread: I n an attempt to expand teh Tau Empire, they stumble upon the lost world of __________. Te planet was originally inhabited by the Imperum, but alsmost 100years after Mankind first set foot on the planet, every last human dissappeared without a trace. The Tau arrived on the planet under the command of Ethereal _______, who organised several small groups of pathfinders to investigate the surrounding area quickly before setting up a field base. Only 1 team came back, claiming to have seen some form of metallic skeletons. The Ethereal becomes worried, but soon, an Orky Waaagh! arrives from Rynn's World nearby, followed by the remnats of the crimson fists space marines and teh Imperial Guard. The Orks are attacked on 2 sides by teh Imperials and the Tau, and are driven away. THte leader of the space marines launches an attack on the Tau field base, but soon, the great pyramids scattered over the planet EXPLODE, revealing the long dormant Necron monoliths. What happens next - I don't know!
