The only one I can think of is Zealot Miniatures (http://www.zealotminiatures.co.uk/zealot-store#!__zealot-store/conversion-bits), who makes female Tau heads and torsos. (they intend to make arms & legs eventually, but like most small studios, their releases take time)

There are several out there. I cant remember who I bought my ymgarl genestealers from but they also sold tau weapons for suits and such. I'll try looking them up for you.

*edit. well, its not chapterhouse. Must have been that other. I'd still have it if I didnt have to format my hard drive the other week

Paulson Games makes some mecha parts that make good broadside and missile pod/smart missile cannons and a gatling gun that could be used as a burst cannon.

I didn't know about those other heads/bodies. I just went ahead and picked some of those up. They are quite nice!

Excellent source for minis to help your tau.

Thanks for pointing out Zealot Miniature's site. I was trying to figure out how to make my one planned squad of 6 Fire Warriors unique. Those sets will do perfectly.

I ordered from them recently and I must add that I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cast : almost no mold line and crisp details (think recent GW plastic sprues level)
