Default Here Comes A New Challenger!

Hello, guys! Baglunch is my name,

Warhammer 40k and Fantasy are my games.

I started 40k about three years ago

with a humbly painted Blood Angels Space Marines army which I have by now mostly sold.

Two years ago I began collecting Eldar and painting it Alaitoc colours, but

recently began repainting it as an Ulthwe army since I saw the rather cool Ulthwe Strike

Force rules in Codex: Eye of Terror.

About a year and a half ago, I also began

my journey with the Tau, Commander Farsight as my first purchase, and now a sprawling

army.

People say I paint well, but as of yet the majority of my two armies is

currently unpainted. I hope to have one or the other painted by Games Day Toronto

2004 so I can get some games in! However, what I do paint causes me to quip,

"well, I paint better than I play" to opponents and friends.

Anyway,

I look forward to fighting for the Greater Good with you all, and hope that some bit of

fluff causes an alliance between the fledgling Tau and the fading Eldar!

Eldar and Tau. Eldar are a dying race. Ill only say one more thing concerning Eldar.

????????. Whereas the universe is the Tau's oyster and although they would submerge

Eldar into the empire the Eldar wouldn't agree. They (Eldar) think they are good so

wouldn't accept the invitation. They would think they are more technologically

advanced. Delusional fools!!!

But i must say Commander Farsight is a good

choice. I've got a farsight army myself. Check my Farsight Army List in the Army

Lists section.

The Eldar are still the most advaced race in the 40k universe and

they probably wouldn't accept an alliance with the Tau although Eldrad Ultheran

seemed to think that it might be a good idea, because according to him the Tau will

eventually surpass the Eldars technology. And stop flaming the Eldar for no reason!!

The

Eldar technology isn't really comparable with Tau technology.

Tau use

very advanced machinery, lasers, plasma, polymers, computers and magnetism etc to create

relatively simple but extremely effective weapons (Linear Cannons(Rail Guns), they exist

already y'know). This technology has been developed very quickly.

Eldar

use psychic-responsive materials such as Wraithbone, highly complex and intricate

machinery that relies on psychic activation. Building weapons is more of an art form for

Eldar (bonesingers) than a craft. This technology was built up over hundreds of thousands

of years.

Seriously, you're embarrasing yourself.
