Default The only good race, the least good?

Sorry if this was posted here before...

Well, I have seen this topic in another far-off forum; Which race is the only good race, and the most evil?

I personnally think that there are only degrees of evil, but no true good.

Thoughts?

This topic has been done to death, and the general consensus is that there are no truly good races, but there are some evil ones.

I has been discussed alot, and it boils down to perspective: Horus probably thought he was doing "good" by destroying what he thought was a "false" Emperor, the fact that Chaos was eating he brain notwithstanding...

Probably the most "evil" races are Necrons, because all they want to do is kill everything. Chaos is an embodyment of primal forces without which we could not exist, and the Dark Kin do their particular brutalities to save themselves.

He is right. ;D Even the nids aren't that bad. At least they strip a planet of all life to survive, Necrons on the other hand just kill to kill. As an added bonus they sold thier souls so yes they are probobly the most evil. >

necrons obay the c'tan. they follow orders, nothing more. You can't blame an army for following orders if the one giving them is evil.

History is written by the winners. So, we can never truely know who is good and who is bad, for this is a war that will never end.

Zero has a point, much like WW2... Everyone said the Germans were evil and stuff in thta war but it was only the officials and high up people who knew about all the bad stuff that was happening to the Jews, the normal soliders were fighting because they were either repressed by the allies after WW1 or thye were forced to by Hitler...

Same goes for almost every army in 40k, except SM, Nids, Eldar and DE

Generally the archetype within fantasy and sci-fi is that if a character looks good, then he/she is good, if they're ugly then they're probably evil. (I'm looking at YOU TOLKIEN!!)

Butchered entire populations for the sake of saving a single Eldar life, or slaughtering a whole colony of humans just for settling the wrong planet...
