I voted for both Eldar and Orks, I can't decide which is cooler. They are both appealing in their own way.

1) Orks
2) tie - Tau/Tyranids





4) everyone else. :p



While not specifically a *race*, my other favourite army would be Harlequins using the DEWC rules. :)

Kroot here as well. Though the Slaan and Jokaero are also favorites. How can you not love space frogs and hyperintelligent orangutans?

tau are closest to samurai but not pirates... dark eldar are the true pirates of 40k... :D

Tau, your only chance to live anything resembling a normal life.

Tyranids seem all fun and games until you realize that no matter if you survive the planetary assault you're STILL dying.

I chose both Tau and Dark Eldar.

Dark Eldar were my first army (Okay, so I never actually bought any models, just proxied, but they were my first codex and my first to make army lists of.)
And I heartily await their next codex. Sure they don't have much fluff.
But come on, evil pirate elves in space who can dodge bullets.
Plus, the Torturer's Tale is one of the best pieces of fiction/fluff GW has published.

Tau, what can I say about them. I love anime, they have giant robots. They also have quite a bit of mystery in the form of Ethereals and Farsight and they're the underdog and the newbies on the block. And I like their philosophy.

Eldar a the coolest it wasa either them or space marines (they were the teams in the first white dwarf I found) but my bro went Eldar so I went Space marines (there is nothing more boring than versing the same team as yourself.

Eldar and Dark Eldar...For their fluff and fall. Reminds me of the mighty Roman Empire:).

Tau because they have a method of warfare that doesn't involve running at enemy guns, frothing at the mouth and trying to butt people over the head.

Picked Orks, would've done Kroot, and squats, but no options.

I have to go with Eldar and Necrons.

I really like the Egyptian style evident in the design of their ranges.

Also, I like the Eldar style of warfare.

SOB (yeah they may be human but they're awesome enough to transcend the species barrier).

Or tau or DE, it's a mixture of playing the communist element up and pinging things with a rail gun that makes me like them.

I like the Tau.
It's an advanced race, with warrior code, nice troops, variety of allies, and more important, plenty of tanks to play with. :p
Altough the Orks are da funn too... they're cool, beasty, funny and offer a lot of open space for transformation/scratchbuild... :)

I think Kroot would have been a good choice but at the time I wasnt really thinking about all of the races in the Tau army

Are you Saying that Nids die easy becasue what happens is if your were to die you mind would still be in the hive network then after your body is eating and then thrown up in to there factorioms your body is rebuilt. That is what they say in Desert Radiers anyway.

They don't HAVE minds. Anything below MC size is basically a dog with a psychic leash.

What they have is the Hive mind so basicly they share one mind thats how the are so deadly its not like you can shoot the Coms tower and they cant tell each other were to go you have to shoot the big ugly thing that will make anyone lower than a IG **** them selfs to break the network. Even then you still have the problem of another one coming back fixing the network. The only way to stop the network from coming back quickly is if you kill the leader of the hive(and that SO easy)

I'm aware of how the Hive Mind works. I was talking about the individual gribblies, who for all intents and purposes are exactly as I described them.

Orks, then Dark Eldar. These are two Xenos fraction I really like. Then there are Kroot and Eldar (mostly likable but not exciting), Necrons and Tyranids (meh, simply not exciting), and at last Tau, who have repelling effect on me.

It's dAEmons. It usually doesn't bother me, but I've seen it in almost every thread I've looked at today :(

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86

That being said, I voted for Dark Eldar and Necrons, due to both having a high cuddle-factor.

Tau as they are the only alien race I "like" even close enough to play as. Otherwise its humans all the way.

Edit: Well maybe a little Dark Eldar as they are into bondage....don't judge me.

i wish zoats and squats are added to the poll. We all know there are few left knocking about the universe dont we ? ;)

Squats are (ab)humans and Zoats are Tyranids :p .

I dislike humans.

My favourite species are Eldar (Dark Eldar, Craftworld Eldar, Exodites, and Harlequins), Necrons, and Tau.

If by bondage you mean agonizing torture and mutilation, then perhaps you'd be right.

SQUATS! O wait...
Well I really enjoy the Eldar(both types). An alien race with culture and style. How bout that?

I voted Tau, for the looks and the fluff. Orks because tha green tide can be fun :)

I voted for orks, if I wasnt playing chaos marines, Id definately be playing orks :D .

I chose Orks. The are just fun and there culture is so cool. Getifa has a whole back story, even my mobs all have a story to tell.

Dark Eldar would have been my second choice, again there culture is just so interesting and has so much potential for building a background for your Archon and his army. Although if peoples wishlisting were to come true, i would lose the build i want to do with the new codex.

Necron... they are mysterious robots from hell
Daemons... they are creatures from another hell

Both great fluff and unique gameplay
And I like to play 'the bad-guy'

Necrons (especially with the new non-C'Tan fluff) and 'nids.

Yeap, bondage, didn't say it was overly sexy bondage, but hey takes all kinds doesn't it ?
