There is a fluff justification for distrust and reluctance...Especially if (I don't recall) the BTs were one of the Chapters caught up in the Age of Apostasy's battles against the Sisters of the time. [Even if Alicia Dominica ended said problem personally...]
That would be a fine explanation if other space marines were in the same category, I mean space wolves are far worse in the sisters of battle point of view but according to ally matrix, sisters get along better with space wolves then Black Templar. Also Black Templar's hold the Emperor in a Higher Regard then most space marine chapters.

As fluff justification, the sisters fought the space wolves after they slaughter a bunch of Ecclesiarchy personal while when the sisters fought the Black Templar, the Black Templar had the were of one of the greatest saints.

This is just something that one person just wrote and slap together without giving it much thought (not to mention makes the game even more unbalance then it is). Also how space marines and tau brothers in arms? Space marines lead a crusade against them.

I was honestly confused. I didn't think "trolling" was the best word for what he was doing at the time I posted my response, but I hadn't had my breakfast or my tea yet, so I was feeling rather--"lazy," I think, is the term I'm looking for--and didn't feel like using a meme generator to replace "trolling" with "sarcasm."

boobs. that is all.

To be Honest I reckon that if the Sister's weren't so tied into the Ecclesiarchy, then the sister's would be running along side the Black Templars holding hand and screaming shit about the Emperor (I for one as a BT player would love to see a Crusader squad made of Initiates, Neophytes and Sisters.)

But as for Ultramarines being the best buds and ...protectors? of the Tau I have to claim big bull on that, Imperial fists maybe? the Imperial Firsts were one of the first chapters to talk to the Tau and they got along fine, filthy Xeno scum but they were fine. I'm pretty sure it was an Ultramarine who sparked up the Tau against the Imperium wasn't it? so even if they Pretty boys walked up to the Tau, arms open saying sorry and wanting hugs I think the 'Greater Good' will shoot them in the face with a point-blank Rail cannon...

"By the Grace of the Emperor we live, By his will he shatter the Horrors of the Warp, with our blades we will cleanse the galaxy!" - Lord Commander Dominicus of the Saints of Absolution.

"The Emperor is the god of all Mankind, and we, are his lightning bolts that strike down his enemies" - from the book of Absolution

It's quite well buried, and is probably only accessible via the UK version of the site. You start at the Community and Events link from the links just under the main navbar, from there go to the Events Calendar, then to Doubles Weekends. The download link is then on that page taken from '40k Doubles Weekend June'.

Annoyingly, looks like I'm now going to the September one which means the force I'm working on will be all wrong. Bah.

It's just that they haven't been updated since the 4th Edition and typically the big victories are contained in an army's Codex while in others they tend to be on the losing end. Plus unlike the other races, they don't have a personal timeline of battles and significant moments. Which we'll probably seen when they are next updated.

Though I won't deny that if the Imperial gathered a proper crusade to face the Tau that they would eventually wipe them out but it would not be a swift campaign simply because they have been constantly adapting and improving their tactics and technology.
No yeah sorry I meant when playing actual games, the ones I've seen the Tau have lost (however they have been played by someone who doesn't really understand half the rules properly)

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow
