Advancing the setting in 40k means that the Tau have taken over the entire galaxy. But don't worry, all your favorite factions still remain because the Tau are the most accepting and obviously logical race in the setting!

Unfortunately a lot of very unique tactical geniuses all want to control the empire because they all have different ideas of what the greater good actually is. Each one leads a different tau army with a xenos detachment.

This does mean that in order to take anything non-Tau you would have to take them as allied detachments to your primary Tau detachment.

>Dreadnoughts are scrapped and the occupants are put to sleep as it is seen as abhorrent

Chaos Space Marines
>The Tau have become so prevalent that their Greater Good Gods have usurped the chaos gods in the warp. CSM now take Tau god marks.

>Have been replaced with greater good angel daemons
>Many wield very large katanas and generally take the appearance of a large-eyed, stylized Tau, usually dressed in flowing capes and with sharp teeth

>Have realized that the Tau are the true inheritors of the galaxy and appreciate their superiority
>Are the only race that has a chance to become a leader/person of importance in Tau society

Dark Eldar

>controlled by the captured golden throne Psyker conduit on Terra

>Have been uplifted by the Tau, but this causes them to lose their WAAAAGH psyker fields.

>through diplomacy they signed an alliance with the Tau because they were swayed by the greater good

This is obscene, Anon. In the wildest depths of Slaanesh's depravity, not even he/she/it would sink this low.

>superior Tau Technology
You know that the tau are the lowest tech race in 40k, except for deamons (which are magic not tech). And I guess tyranids, unless you count bioengineering as tech.

Yeah the tau treat their technology like technology (as opposed to like art the way the elder do, or like mysticism like the imperium). But there is nothing that tau tech can do that the other races arnt capable of (and the other races can normally do it with smaller devices).

My favourite Adeptus Mechanicus / Tau thing is how the last crusade apparently ended by the tech priests getting sick of Tau bullshit so they just set a few cubic light years of space on fire. Because that is apparently a thing they can do.

Tech levels in 40k are beautifully wonky.
