Its obvious its marines because if you go down to any tournment or thing like that you will see that marines will down lows because there are so many marine players for sevral reasons:
They are a flexable army and anyone can play well with them.
They are really tough and strong.
Just look on the blister and boxsets whats got the most? Marines.
They have decent abilities and wargear.

Making threads like this is generally a bad idea. We all know the answer is Space Marines, they're the poster child for everything Games Workshop. I remember hearing that Tau were the only race that rivaled them in sales, but I'm not sure as to the truth of that statement.

If you're asking for the most played army out of all the Tau Online members then that's probably a different story. Though I suppose you wouldn't need a poll to figure that out really, it's in the name. ;D

@ sidstyler

That statement was probably made when the Tau had just been rereleased or was made base on a poll on this website (which for obvious reasons would give the Tau a higher proportion than is usual).

And whoo, eldar would be joint second if I hadn't also put down my marine force.

Yeah, like Sidstyler said "Whick army is the best" threads tend to get locked because it's been done a hundred times in the past, and tends to lead to army bashing.

ChillaMasta, there is a stickied post at the top of the General 40k forum that is basically a massive version of the poll you have now, the 'Official Army Poll'. You may want to reference that thread to answer you're question. Obviously the results may be a bit skewed since this is Tau Online, but it works nonetheless.

Heck you could probably split marines into Ultra, Chaos, and Other and have them take the top three spots.

What I usually see at tournaments is:

60% Marines

20% Eldar

20% Rest.

Sad if you ask me, but Marines are "easy" to play in general, and often use braindead tactics, like the old rhino rush as an example.

No offence, but this thread is slightly pointless.

SM are by far the most used because they are probably the easiest (or one of the easiest) armies to play with. they also look very cool and have strong armour as such.
