The Dark Eldar are one of the tricksiest armies to pull off a win against some armies...and if you truly want a challenge, then try them out anytime. As for new models? I think you need to see this again...

Pic removed. The phrase 'Illegal material' will suffice for now.

Considering my sister, best friend (pictured) and old lover play Dark Eldar...I find it hard to believe that people say they're uncommon

Still Dark Eldar. The fact that you are considering them tells me that you think you've got a chance at becomeing good with them. If you think that you have or can develop the tactics then play DE. Otherwise go with Chaos.

I say get a DE codex, and proxying a bunch of games with them (roughly 10)

If you notice a difference between the first and last games and you've begun to win, play them. If you don't, put the codex back on the shelf for reference purposes only and get the Emporers' Children.

Bash, the image you posted here violated our rules, namely the fact that picture was bordering on pornographic. Count yourself lucky I have not smote you, but don't count on no one overriding my descion to refrain from it...

i must say chaos simply because i think they are cooler, and they are slightly easier to paint and i think you can convert slightly more with them.

I have already posted my opinions as to what army should be taken so I would just like to take a moment to respond to Del S's attack on one of Bash's previous posts. These are the rules listed in the TO announcements page, if there is some other set of rules I should be reading please feel free to correct me.

"Posting of information, or links to, warez, pornography, information of pirated software, hacking or discussing anything illegal is not allowed and you may be banned outright for posting such things. The list at the start of this paragraph is just a guide to what you can't post; please view Tau Online's host's Terms of Service for further information about prohibited content."
-Tau Online


Bash didn't post links to anything so that part is null and void. He wasn't trying to sell anything so that too is null and void. There was no discussion of anything stolen or illegal, only a picture and an opinion, neither of which are uncommon. Which leads me to believe that you are of the opinion that the picture posted by Bash was pornographic. This is all shown by the bolded and stricken parts in the quoted rules.
Here are the definitions of a few words for you;
Pornography - "The depiction of erotic behavior (as in pictures or writing) intended to cause sexual excitement." By that definition, no one could post pictures of anything on here w/o someone being able to claim that it was pornography. On a more practical note I have seen greeting cards, potholders, pornography, wallpaper, bedspreads, book covers, pop-up ads, and a great number of other things with pictures far worse than this one. Take, for example, the Warhammer 40,000 miniatures spoken of on this site; Dark Eldar Wyches, Dark Eldar Succubi and Deamonets of Slaanesh to name a few. This was a picture of an adult woman who is comfortable with her body. She is not having sex, she is not attempting to cause arousment, she is simply posing for a piece of art while covering herself, in this case a picture. Besides, your comment of "Bordering pornography" tells me two things. The first of which is that you don't think that the picture is pornographic and that it is NOT your opinion that it should be removed or deserve punishment because only pornographic material would be punishable. If it was a pornographic image then I can see where you would be doing Bash a favor, but its not pornographic.
The picture that was posted by Bash was a picture of an adult female who was posing for art. There were no more body parts revealed than everyday clothing that is worn, thus it is not pornography. It is not pornographic by nature, by content, or even by your opinion. Thus there should be no punishment by any of the moderators and this issue should be dropped.
BTW, I went and read the explicit details of the Terms of Service and this was not prohibited by the host site. If someone on Tau Online was offended by this picture then I am sure they contacted a moderator but as for whether or not this was a pornographic image or not, the rules of both TO and the TO host site(elixant.com) state that it is not. If anybody would like to use a different definition then the one provided by Merriam Webster Dictionary Online, feel free as long as it makes sense.

[fanboy] BTW, play Dark Eldar, they rock! [/fanboy]

Steel Skeleton,

While you're correct on many accounts and statements, here's the real reason:

[size=11pt]Regardless of what the rules state, the Administrator and the General Moderators still make the final decisions when it comes to what is appropriate and seen as acceptable on the website. It doesn't matter what it is. If it was collectively seen as something inappropriate for this forum, it would be removed. As such, that's what happened.[/size]

Come on guys, please don't turn this into a technical battle.
Sure, it's not killing anyone. But it's also not helping anything either.

In the end, it was deemed as inappropriate. So please just accept that and respect the decision of the staff, who work to keep this site clean for everyone.

With utmost respect,
-Mal

Cheers!
