Dark Eldar: The Bleeding Dragon Kabal - Previously known as the Silver Dragon it was one of the wealthiest Kabals on Commorragh. It achieved its wealth mostly through the slave trade, although a lot of blackmail and treachery didn't hurt. When the High Archon was killed while spectating an arena event the Kabal fell into disarray. A Sybarite called Sybaris claimed the title of High Archon after killing an Archon and wounding a Dracon and Haemonculus in an argument over leadership. Sybaris renamed the Kabal as the Bleeding Dragon and began to reforge it as a fighting force to claim the stars in the glory of Commorragh.
Colours: Dark Green and Red armour, Black helmets and undersuits, Warriors have red undersuits.

Chaos: It was just a night lords warband lead by two eccentric sorcerers but me and my friend are gonna make an apocalypse sized joint army when the new stuff comes out.
Colours: Midnight blue and gold with a few spots of red here and there.

Tyranids: A bunch of hungry super predators ;D
Colours: Liche Purple flesh, Black carapace with red markings

Tau
A loose collection of veterans from multiple cadres merged together during an urban warfare operation.

Nids
'NidZilla. I was, at the time, obsessed with all the options in the new carnifex kit. Everything was strangely vulnerable to heavy bolters though. :-X

Orks
Army Name: Orkatraz
Description: Orange Jumpsuits, iron-looking weapons, blood-covered choppas.
Themes: Sluggas, Shootas, Killa Kanz, Flash Gitz, Lots of Big Gunz! All about the Teknology.

Necrons
Army Name: "The Ghosts of Ages Past" is all they are known as by Imperials.
Description: Dark Metallic Shoulder plates/legs, Bluish-black chest plates, Green glowing eyes/etc, and White Faces.
Themes: Lots of CC, including scarabs, wraiths, flayed ones, etc, although I play with virtually everything there is Necron. I love the Deceiver over the Nightbringer, though (seems more fair, especially since most of my enemies are S3...)

Thousand Sons: Standerd fluff, except I always field Ahriman when able as they are his personal company.

Tau: bleh, they were my starter army and many of them have now been sacrificed to conversions.

The Revilers of Cadia: A splinter group of the 13th Black Crusade, left behind to constantly assault cadia's defenses, buying time until the next crusade. Although they mainly consist of all four cult marines, their power armor has been painted black except for their left shoulder pad which displays their legion colors. The opposite is true for the aspiring champions.

Space Marines - No one chapter, but I have enough to feild a full first company (50 tactical marines, 55 terminators including a 5 man command squad)

Chaos - Death Guard and a LATD army for games where a fully powered armoured force would be inappropriate (sp?)

Imperial Guard - Steel Legion (based on the Necromundan 'spiders' from 2nd Ed fluff)

Tau - N'ori Sept. (This is the only one I have history for because they were created for a specific campaign, but the abbreviated version is...) A Tau sept formed during the Third Sphere expansion. The leaders of N'ori are fanatically loyal to the Tau cause of the greater good, believing that the Tau must take their rightful place as the guiders for the other races enlightenment. Unfortunatly during the Tiagon campaign they were called in a relief force for the weakened planetary defences of the sector. They arrived too late, but the carnage they witnessed changed the minds of many of the commanders forever.
Believing that their enamies (particularly humans) were too baser creatures to come to the greater good through the 'carrot' of enlightenment, the N'ori believe that the only way to bring other races into Tau soceity is by force and that the only place they may serve is as an underclass to the glory fo the enlightened. Those that would refuse to accept their station must be anihilated.

(Theres more, but I doubt anyone has read this far, so I will finish this later and post it in the fluff or story section)

They wear Black Armour, white sept markings with a dark blue underclothes.

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
Any similarities between your reality and mine are purely coincidental...

Dark Eldar- The Kabal of the Bleeding shadows: over 5000 points of models, and though I've stopped actively buying them, I'm still hunting for a suitable model for my archon.

Adeptus Arbites- I don't even have enough of thes to have a name or fluff. I barely have 500 points yet...
