Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – T’au

Warhammer 40,000

A new faction joins the fight for the war-torn planet Gladius Prime

Never have the T’au been so close to extinction. Your homeworlds are surrounded. The Swarm, the machines, the barbaric humans. To ensure the survival of the T’au, The Fourth Expansion was launched to claim rich new worlds. Yet the warp swallowed the T’au. Your ship emerged alone near a war-ravaged, alien planet. This was not the paradise promised. But you will conquer it. For the T’au, for the Greater Good.

After the Chaos Space Marines and Tyranids DLCs, a new faction joins the fight for the domination of Gladius Prime. Driven by a constant ambition to expand and spread the word of the Greater Good across the Galaxy, they will seek to assimilate or eliminate all the other opposition races on the planet.

With 31 new units, the T’au can deploy an impressive and lethal army. Between swarms of drones and powerful battlesuits, the T’au player will never have a shortage of tactical options. The T’au warfare doctrine has been carefully represented in Gladius. Their army is a ranged-based force relying on superior technology and devastating firepower. Through subversion, propaganda and assimilation of the indigenous lifeforms, they can find new allies and completely disrupt the enemy morale, paving the way for planetary conquest.

The T’au arsenal

Convert Auxiliaries

One of the most powerful weapons of the T’au is their ability to seek new allies. They can spend influence to convert certain neutral units like Kroot Hounds and the brand new Vespid Stingwing to their cause.

For the Greater Good

The core philosophical concept at the heart of the T’au. Demoralize your opponents and destroy their units’ morale by spending influence. Proselytize and immediately gain population in your cities.


Turn your enemies’ servants against their masters. Through precise use of propaganda, you will be able to cripple the loyalty of enemy cities.


A T’au Battlesuit is an advanced powered combat exoskeleton that forms an integral part of the T’au Fire Caste’s military forces. Customize them by upgrading with advanced support systems.

Drones and Markerlights

Deploy many different designs of drones, miracles of T’au technology that provide offensive, defensive and tactical support. Make use of Markerlights to maximize your firepower.
