chaos because they look so cool!!!

19-04-2007, 18:45
I like the Xenarch (spelling?). Just because they zap people and don't have an army of their own.

The Laughing God

Necrons all the way! They come back from being destroyed is awesome!
(I love WBB)

There models also look so cool.

19-04-2007, 18:51
Guard. Because i know no other.

19-04-2007, 19:36
Eldar! (allthough, orks doesn't come far behind)

19-04-2007, 19:46
Guard. The only army here to protect humanity, and plentiful enough to do it any place, any where, any time.

It has to be Chaos..did the name give it away?

necrons, they are the definitive death-robots and inspired an entire music-genre, cant say that for any other race in 40k.

19-04-2007, 20:07
The Inquisition...I'd play them again if they were plastic...though I'm overly tempted to build up another Inquisitor and retinue just for the fun of it.

For the Greater Good!!

We suck in close combat, couldn't fight our way out of a wet paper bag, but you'll never get close enough to us to find out.

So many options...so little money... :D

19-04-2007, 21:36
The Hrud... SPACE SKAVEN!!

I really want them to come out with them... they are being mentioned in more and more books though... so I'm going to be hopeful!

19-04-2007, 21:39
Tyranids. Because i play them.

And they are the only true neutral race in Warhammer40K.

19-04-2007, 21:54
there is there isnt...I am,I am not
There shall ever be chaos!

19-04-2007, 22:00
Dark eldar!!!

My first real love is Chaos (specifically Slaanesh), but I have been tempted by the Dark Eldar (must be a Slaanesh thing)...

The Inquisition...I'd play them again if they were plastic...though I'm overly tempted to build up another Inquisitor and retinue just for the fun of it.

I agree, I have already started converting a retinue, just cos I can..!

Dark Eldar. bondage space elves which are into everything they get a kick out of. drugs, sex, torturing, poetry, philosophy, killing in gladitorial combat, going fast on skyboards or jetbikes, story telling, fashion design, whatever. if they enjoy it, they'll do it.

plus when the thirst starts getting to them, lets psychicly suck out some poor victim's delicious soul to fill the void of the gradual sapping feeling.

this makes DE the best. you can theme them along what ever your Lord enjoys doing, and thats ok as they have little fluff. they have cool special characters. the models are either really good or god awful, but converting them isn't overly difficult.

they are sleek and fast, dressed in spiky spandex, flowing cloaks and bristling with blades and trophies. their music is a coacophany of screams. their machines and technology are more advanced than even craftworld eldar, arcane, intricate, unreplicable, personalised and completely understood.

paradoxically abhorring psyker powers yet everyday objects are used and manipulated via the mind, or tearing a soul from its body.

they are unaffraid to twist and experiment on themselves, creating feral mandrakes or twisted grotesques. all is for fun. as long as they enjoy it, its ok. nothing is taboo, only taboo is taboo.

the fact they have no respect for anything, treating every living thing as cattle. they are a race of spiteful pirate slavers. what could be better than that?

thats why i love the DE. and people say they are just dark elves in space.

Other armies fight to conquer land and claim resources (from fuel to human sacrifices), to defend their homes or just to eat!

Orks fight because they enjoy it!

Tyranids, my friend tyranids. Join us......

20-04-2007, 02:56
People is my favorite race.

20-04-2007, 04:52
Humans, as I am a human and can generally feel their plight. That goes for their superhuman brothers as well.

Tau all the way, bascially the only realistic race- Actually have technology 40,000 years away (well, just technology actually...) and they actually have an empire which, though small, works. Plus the fact the fact that BLATTLE SEWTZ IS WELL KWEL!!1!

20-04-2007, 11:48
Orks, hands down.
