As I've been watching the debate over on the "future of GW" and various DA codex threads, I've kind of gotten the sense that the newer codeces seem to be favoring mech-style lists. With the exception of C:Nids, it seems like most people are arguing that the optimal builds are mech-based. Certainly, mech-tau and mech-eldar are much bandied about and most of Gt coverage implies that mech-type armies are the dominate builds right now. (I would lump DP'ing marines as sort of an ultimate mech-type).

Does anybody else see this as a trend and what does it mean if anything?
