I like Tyranid fluff. They're soulless, numberless, and unstoppable. They are basically a god in their own right with "the shadow in the warp". I like to think that this is all the millions of warp creatures excited because they know that they might soon be born into new tyranid bodies and get a chance to experience life. Tyranids are simply a perfect life force.

Next is the Necrons. They're soulless, and unstoppable. Some of them ARE gods. They HATE the warp. They are a perfect force of death.

I play Tau. Their fluff is not impressive, but humble. They have an explosive start and a bright future. All are respected. They have a sense of honor. They are the noble underdog, struggling against a universe of Mont'au - terror, chaos. This frame really strikes a chord in my heart.

And I hate the imperium. Religion, tradition, totalitarianism - blah blah blah. Pathetic creatures that should be extinguished! Err, I mean, shown the error of their ways and permitted to serve the Tau'va. ;D

I actually like the Chaos fluff... (weird since I am a Tau player) but their ferverant devotion to their Chaos God is inspirational.

What if they are right and the imperium is wrong ? hmmm.... ???

anyway...

My personal fav. is The Guard. Its so varied, all those different worlds and I really like the whole idea that Guard are just humans, in a galaxy filled with aliens and monsters..

Imperial Fluff has the most diversity. It is dark, cruel and bleak, as well as funny in a sadistic kind of way.

After that comes Ork Fluff and Eldar Fluff. Both of which rock.

Then Tau Fluff, except they are sometimes portrayed as stronger than they deserve to be.

Then Genestealer Fluff.

Then Chaos fluff, who again seem to get too much praise, and far too many "cheap saves" for their characters (Most Chaos Lords should have died hundreds of times by now...).

Then "Lesser" fluff, stuff like Kroot, Demiurg, Tarellian Dog-soldiers, etc.

Then Tyranid Fluff.

Then the tiny battle-snippits.

Then the artwork.

Then the index.

Then the Slann.

Then the Necrons.

*Deploys the Marauder Destroyer, whilst Ride of The Valkyries plays in the background.*

Right, that's the Orks dealt with...
