    Nids should have been the primary race, Tau seriously suck, as do Necrons, as do Black Templars as do most Games-Workshop "new" innovations.

    I'm suprised Leo stuck his phone number on here, along with that of some other lady, particualy as its a Legion forum, I mean come on, he knows what people are like here doesn't he?

    Yeah, Tau are just retarded. Anyone who uses Tau in either DoW or in the tabletop version is just some retarded, aging hippy.

    I don't like the new races, but that's because GW have always been going down hill in my opinion. The old stuff was good. I don't keep track of the new stuff but the Tau just seem lame. Squats would have been good. Tyranids would have been awesome. Genestealers too. All sorts of good stuff to be had.

    Space Marines still pwn all though.
