I'm suprised the Necrons haven't been mentioned.

They seem pretty cool with the whole Eygptian angle, but their fluff is incredibly under-developed.

Also if you are talking of overpowered, drop Space Marines from the conversation and vote for the Necrons. When they wake up, the fluff basically says ... "Your all screwed!". Which is incredibly one dimensional.

I'm also suprised people hate the Eldar, they have for my mind, one of the best pieces of fluff ever written, 'The Fall'.

Basically take a long look at the Dark Eldar, thats what the Eldar had become by the time of The Fall, how awesome is that?

Also 'regular' Eldar may be a little space hippish, but the fact they are f*cked and are still able to run rings around most enemies tells you an awful lot about them and their powers. Also viewing the Imperium as monkeys is awesome, just like:



FRIEZA!!!

So like I said, until their fluff is developed more, for me, it's gotta be Necrons.

Like I said, I hate the Eldar because they are a bunch of arrogant jackasses who see themselves as being better than everyone else, even though they caused one of the biggest fuckups in the history of the galaxy. The Imperium is crumbling because they're getting attacked from all angles. Why did the Eldar empire crumble? Because they got bored.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

They have lots of very good reasons to be arrogant, you really shouldn't forget that. They could literally do anything they wanted, when they wanted, even the lowest among them can be a God to other races.

CoTE, I gotta definately agree with you here, I think the Fall is amazing, so what that they fell? All Empires fall, but they went out in style and gave birth to my favourite Chaos Diety in the process.

Sounds alot like the Romans and they were pretty cool guys IMO. Also the Imperium does that with all humans they encounter, so I think that's a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

The Eldar. I hate elves. They are elves in space. (Minus the one or two that resemble ninjas)

They also have a lot of reasons to go sit in the corner and shut the fuck up while they ponder what they did. I'm not saying they're not a powerful race. Hell, your average farseer can rip most other individuals a completely new asshole. I'm just saying that they're not as perfect as they make themselves out to be.

Definitely either Eldar or Tau; Eldar because I despise pansy elves in general and Tau because of their fluff in general and the fact that they don't even play a large role at all the galactic scene and only survived by luck, heck they only face maybe 1/10 at the most of what most other races have to deal with.

And as Warcraft 3 Garithos says:

"NEVER TRUST AN ELF!"

My advice to you is to get married, if you have a good wife you'll be happy; if you get a bad one you'll become a philosopher.

In the grim darkness of the future the economy has even hit daemons, The Changeling is working at White Castle and Skarbrand is giving head in the alley next to Fateweaver's.You ever receive fellatio from a rhyming demon? It's a bad scene man.

Sticking your junk into a fang-filled mouth that breathes fire doesn't strike me as particularly smart.
Which is why that option should be available to any willing to take it.

In fact, there should be fang-faced, firebreathing demons on every streetcorner offering to pay 100 dollars to give BJ's. The gene pool would be vastly better off without anyone incapable of thinking it through.

To state my reasoning a bit more specifically for those of you that have read the book, while ensuring those that haven't don't get royaly pissed: think back to the part of the book in which you find out how the Primarchs were created, and what the Emperor did to piss on Chaos. That whole 10 pages or so really shows the arrogance of the False Emperor, and likewise, the Imperium as a whole
Don't worry we are on our way to your house. You probably won't enjoy the taste of the rosette though. The Tau are the most annoying. Fanboys flock to them and say the Greater Good is all great, powerful and everything. They are essentially the Xenos version of the Ultramarines. They are like the annoying little mosquito that keeps trying to board your nasal cavity like a ship.

"There are dark pitted corners of our universe that have bred the most unfathomable horrors and blasphemies that would burn and blind the sanest man. Fortunately sanity has never been a prerequisite of membership in the Holy Ordos." - Inquisitor Silas Marr

Dark Eldar. By a long shot.

In the Grim Darkness of the Far Future, there is no Common Sense.
