Description:

Too bad Kroots largely fell out of favor by now.
Ethereal Fluttershy is still ready to help them out and lead them into Tau society, though.
She's often seen helping them tame the beasts they use, using her gift of communication with animals unseen among the Ethereal caste.

Aun’Celestia: It burns so briefly, the light of my little ponies, so briefly. But, by the Greater Harmony, it burns so bright!
Aun’Celestia: It saddens me greatly that we must take arms against the races of the galaxy. By their deaths, they deny themselves the liberation that is only to be found in total surrender to the Greater Harmony.

There is no victory without unity, no peace when there's conflict. In this dark time, we can only forget our differences and fight the darkness together.

They are fierce indeed these Griffin, and savage. I look upon them and tremble at their ferocity. I can only hope that when the enemy sees them they tremble as I do.

A thousand fibres connect each of us with our fellow ponies and along those fibres our deeds run as causes which come back to us as effects. Everything we must do must be in furtherance of the Greater Harmony lest we return to the Troubled Times, the Discord.

The other races are not intrinsically evil. Do not hate them. Pity them for their ignorance. Seek to understand their differences and acquaint them with their inadequacies. Only then will they accept their place in the Greater Harmony.

It is not our technology that will enable us to prevail in this galaxy. It is our shared sense of honour and commonality of cause that unites us and will give us the power to defeat our enemies.

It is as we join with others, in a way that only Equestrians can, in shared engagement to the Greater Harmony, that we find ourselves able to fully realize our true potential. And that is the final source of our hopes and intentions.

I have received your messages, acquainting me that these worlds belong to your Emperor, your master. In return I am to inform you that the said worlds belong to their Ethereal Majesties, Aun'Celestia and Aun’Luna, my masters, by right of settlement. Should you wish to gain similar rights you must submit yourselves to their wisdom as citizens of the Equestrian empire.

It is Emperium Propaganda that the Tau use any sort of mind control, and when it comes to the Dawn of War… its canon is arguable at best, with the ending most people talk about involving the Tau being an alternate ending not the tru ending.

The Exodites aren't a main faction. Not only is the artist probably unaware of their existence and relevant lore, but they don't fit the theme of this series of drawings.
And though the humans in the Tau Empire might "have it hard", they've always had it hard. Existence is a constant struggle in the 40K verse. Sure, the Tau have certainly committed atrocities (surprise), but they're the only faction that would peaceably live alongside species like humans and kroot and even make an effort to reach out to Orks. The Exodites sure as hell wouldn't.

@SFaccountant
But the exodites are eldars, that are 'back to the roots'. So, FS would fit them better. The Tau are using their allies for their agenda and plans, they even use mind-control helmets on the Vespids to gain them as allies. They trust actually only themself, any non-tau have it hard outside the military. Check Dawn of War series for example.

Fluttershy is arguably closer to the Tau than every other "real" faction of 40K. In that the Tau see aliens as potential allies rather than pests cluttering up their future real estate.
Also, they make use of xeno animals way more than any other faction, so there's also that "beastmaster" parallel.

Should someone re-upload the pic with the changes DavionX's made or are we sticking with this version?

Eeeeh, no, Fluttershy doesn´t fit really to the Tau or even the Kroot. Fluttershy would belong to the Exodites more as the Tau are really space communists, having more bad, ugly sides than good ones.

Also is the character of Fluttershy not really a techno-fan.
