School holidays?

There is no best army.

Its like saying whats better, rock paper or scissors. Only difference is there is almost infinite different combinations in 40k.

There are some small things that can be considered better than others, for example you can say that a Land Raider is better than a Rhino in all aspects (although not for the points), but its impossible to say that an entire race is better than another one.

For example, people might say that Space Wolves are better than Blood Angels currently, and as they can be roughly compared to each other this statement can be true, however a decent BA player with a decent list will SMASH a poor SW player.

When you start trying to compare Tyranids to Marines, or Orks to Eldar, its impossible. Its comparing apples to oranges.

missed out the epitomous "mine"... I think most people would vote for that.

Joe is right here- there is no overall 'best army' for 40k (though you could argue DoC for WFB). All races are meant to be balanced and all games are meant to be equal points... the whole idea of which is that no race has an advantage over all others...

Having said that different armies are better then others at certain tasks- there are arguably best armies for assault, movement, shooting and for fighting certain types of list... so if you want to know what the better/best armies are for certain situations then its a more valid question.

Dawww... despite all that, some people voted... Why the heck I'm the only one who voted Tau?! T_T Nobody loves those fishy-guys...

But anyways, yeah, there's no real best army as you can always find a flaw in your opponent's strategy, or he can have great units but none of strategy... I have this guy who was always defeated despite having Force organization Charts that best local players designed for him

Fucking Vespids...

these guys rock. SPACE WASPS DOOD!

As for the statement that hes a pussy in close combat... ignore that. He shreds things. Nothing with Str 10, 5 attacks that ignore invunerable saves should be called a pussy. - JackalMJ
