Default Eldar working for Tau

What do you think? Could a craftworld set sail for Tau space and side with them or maybe the Tau take over an exodite world peacefully?

The Eldar are to stubborn to actually join forces with anyone permanently. And I think that would be the same for a peaceful takeover.

Only if it benefited them in some fashion that could highly obscure toanyone other than the eldar and would likely mean the loss of significant tau numbers in the process

Why would the former superpowers of the galaxy side with one of the youngest races in WH40k in a bid for safety? The Tau are not given much focus by the Imperium because they are relatively harmless but if the Eldar were to join their side? The Imperium would probably wipe the Tau out once and for all.

Also the Eldar are the most proud race in all of WH40k and they're manipulating the Tau anyways (Xenology).

Didn't Eldrad say he felt a certain connection/protectiveness to them? Isn't there two Craftworlds near Tau space to?

"I have followed the myriad potential futures of the Tau with great interest. Though barely even striplings compared to us, I feel a strange protectiveness towards them. In time I believe they will exceed even our greatest feats and master the darkness within their souls."

Although it still doesn't change the matter. They can get along and live close together just fine, but as others have said, they would only ally with them if it was a benefit to themselves. Example, using the Tau to slow the approach of a Splinter Fleet.

So Eldar wearing Tau armour and weaponry is not likely?

Even the Eldar would still consider Tau technology to be primitive in comparison to there own.

Highly unlikely

However, the concept of "Eldar Tau" I find most interesting

They would look at it much like the modern armies of today being told to drop your guns and pick up a sword.
Edit: wait no more like a sharpened wooden stick and to run at their enemies in the nude.
