When looking through the white dwarf when the tau came out, they had some very intresting ideas for them. They looked very indian/chinese with large straw hats , massive billowing robes etc.

Have they done anything to go with this at all ? Or have they just let them become just generic anime aliens ?

That sort of clothing is probably used by the water and ethereal caste. You can see a picture of a bunch of rather filigrane Tau civilians escaping while a bunch of fire warriors protect them.

Oh , I would of liked more of this , I know it's against the tau who try and use modern tactics for their military , but a bit of 40k wackiness would be fun.

Like a drunk earth caste martial artists who roams the galaxy beating up those who mean harm to innocent travelers?

Which would be more impressive if the greatest Tau martial artist ever wasn't WS 3. :)
