    okay. yeah, sure.

    the only reason the Tau are "less douchey" is because they have the luxury of relative seclusion AND superior tech.

    Personally, I'm into the Tyrannids because they have a monster called "Old One-Eye" if I am recalling correctly.

    On a related note, what is the original archetypal source that all of these people are riffing from? Alien Xenomorph, the flood, tyrannids, the zerg (obviously based on WH40k right?), etc

    really? i feel like the whole backstory to the space marines is just awesome on a bunch of levels. tau are fucking boring, in fact all the other races are really just bit players in the struggle between chaos and man.

    from what i hear, starcraft was originally going to actually be a warhammer 40k game, but they wouldnt give blizz the rights, so they just stole a lot of the ideas. dont quote me on that though.

    I've heard that same thing about both warcraft and starcraft. Blizzard started to make warhammer games but something fell through and they just finished the games with slightly changed names.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Space Marines to death. But all those overly privledged and corrupt Ecchlisarchs are what truly grind my gears. The Astartes are the only redeeming feature of the Imperium.

    Currently reading "False Gods", which I think is book 2 in the Horus Heresy series. Very interesting so far.
