The Xenarch who inhabit the Northern Rim, they worship the warp and had some pretty fancy pewpew lightning guns that converted electricity better then the Cult Mechanicus could.

They're usually non-militaristic and really just focus on mining and worlds with high mineral wealth (coughspacedwarvescough). Basically the Chaos Gods focus on humans cause they're the only race that matters. Necrons are more like eldar in terms of plot potential.

Tau Empire – The Tau have a very weak presence in the Warp and possess a small fraction of territory compared to the other races of the galaxy; however, their disbelief in Chaos means that should the Ruinous Powers choose to move against them they will be as blindsided as the Imperium was during the Horus Heresy.
