Tau Fleets... I really hope they get some auxiliairies. These are IMO what brings the most interest to the race, the fact they absorb other races.

Do these include all the forge world ones?

I get nothing at your link.

Kor'or'vesh Fleet and Demiurg Models were made by Forgeworld. My guess is that the initial release of the Tau will only feature the Kor'or'vesh Fleet.
However i also hope they will include their ally vessels. (I dont have the Kroot Warshpere so i couldt take a picture of that metal-ball with spikes, its easy to find in the internet though)

Fortunately the light cruiser and cruiser (emissary and protector) both have multiple profiles. 3 for Light Cruiser and 2 for Cruiser. They also have a Destroyer and Frigate. IIRC they could also use the missionary frigate.

I like the deisgn personally although I know many didnt.

yeah I did some math and once you include all the varients, the allies etc, Tau are second only to the Imperial navy in terms of ship varity

Yes, it is a ship, not a space station.

Might as well be a space station considering it was half the speed of the Retribution. Slower than the Emperor! And with half the range on the guns. The Warsphere looked cool but it doesn't seem all that impressive since it didn't even have cool Tau guns or missiles.
