Default What team to choose: the weird way

For all the noobs out there that have just started 40K read this:
Everyone who has ever started playing 40K don't know what team to choose and unless you can see into the future it's pretty much impossible to choose right away, but my point is that these are THE steps to choosing the right team.
1. First of all don't choose space marines.( because 5/10 players choose them)
2. Second of all what genre of armies would you like.
Magic, eldar, dark eldar.
Numbers of people, imperial guard, tyranids
Guns, Tau
Theirs others as well but I can't be bothered to mention them.
3. Put yourself in the shoes of the common unit in the army and choose what thing suits you best.
4. Buy your self a self help book. ( you'll need it for the folowing steps)
5. Stare at models for 24+ hours and choose the models you like the best.
6. Scan forums for 1 week+ for pin pricks of information on all the armies. (it may take a while to fill the pin)
7. Spend most of your time in the bathroom. (Because some people have their greatest ideas on the toilet and heck you may be one of those people)
8. Buy every codex and spend around a week reading and making tactics for the teams.
9. Make cardboard cut outs of every unnit and play matches with yourself with them.
10. Make an army with the real armies and battle with them.
11. Paint each model to your liking and if it is good enough incinerate it and start again.
12. Theses are the several steps to deciding your army, oh and i forgot to tell you, you'll need alot of money and time to follow these steps. And most people won't have a social life after so don't look for friends or even family after you have chose you army.
I hope you have liked my several steps on how to coose the army you will love and cherish for the rest of our life. (because heck they'll be the only friends you'll ever have for the rest of you life) ;D


PS. these steps aren't to be taken seriously.

or alternatively you could just buy Eldar because you know they're the best.

Eldar are not very good, one they're a dying race so they can't be that good and two there... erm aren't very good.

*edited as to not offend eldar players like me-elflord9d*

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

>Grrr > Eldar are utter pants, anyone who likes them needs a self help book, the only good thing about them is wraithlords (because they look cool). Other than that Tau are the best.

Fire Dragons can out-shoot half your army, as can Dark Reapers, Striking Scorpions, Warp Spiders and Banshees can tear your to bits too. And the Avatar is hilarious against the Tau.
I find fighting Blood Angels easy...I haven't met a Tau player that can say the same...
