Oh, two points I missed.

@Wargamer: I think he meant they have plenty of non-Tau auxiliaries to throw at their enemies. Still a poor point though.

@Guitardian: Drones are used because they are a small, fast, flying (ok not quite flying) target that is far better adapted to reconnaisance and harrying roles than simply throwing bodies at the problem. Also, it doesn't do much for inter special relations if you use all of your auxiliaries as nothin more than bodies to throw at a wall.

Justify the physics in 40k without relying on any of GW's fallbacks (artistic intent, etc.). >

[hr]

In all seriousness, justify to me why the Eldar don't just hump away a little bit more and fix their population issue(s). :slaanesh: :shifty:

Short answer - you're an idiot who doesn't know anything about Tau.
Smote. No one has any business flaming other members about their opinions.

We had a long discussion about this one a while back. It does take a lot of justification, and you really need to do a good job with the models for it to get by.

Female space marines is a good one. I have also run into a little opposition with my Looted Carnifex, so that might be one to justify.

Seriously? It was a wounded Fex. The Orks got to it following their ownage of a splinter fleet and the Mek Boyz and Pain Boyz went at it. Orks are infamous for making the impossible, in regards to mechanics, possible, through their psychic nature. Few of their vehicles have any right to stay assembled, much less operate at a battle-worthy capacity. A looted Carnifex is perfectly justifiable: an excellent example of Orky engineering. ;D

I wouldn't have thought a Looted Fex needed justification; I'd have assumed it was meant to be a parody, and parody does not need serious explanation.

Agreed, Orks don't need explanations at all imo. They are (imo, again) the most free spirited army to convert and play with.

I suppose. That is certainly how I felt when I made it. But if you want to take it seriously, it is sort of an interesting question. Tyranids have component organisms all the way down to the cellular level, and they would reject things like implants without the inherent psychic power of the Orks to overcome them. You also run into the problem of how to feed it, since most of the bigger Tyranid organisms aren't built to last very long. I sort of arm-wave that one away.
