Default Kroot to Vespid to Tau

I was just wondering, with the new addition to the Tau empire, which main species of the empire is the best?

Tau for sure. The other races is within the Tau army, so they count as Tau troops.

I'm talking about the species. Believe it or not, Kroot DNA is not that similar to Tau DNA.

Tau, they're getting a BS4 optional upgrade, they have better weapons, and have battlesuits. Kroot dont get saves, and they have bad weapons unless used as rapid fire, and then the vespid look like crap, have mediocre weapons, act like jump infantry, (which in most cases is good), but are all in all only mediocre troops.

What do you mean by "best"? Are you talking about fluff, game terms or the way they look?

Well for me it does not matter how you put it I say the Tau are best. In game terms Kroot dont fit into my battle plans at all and I cannot say much about the Vespid with any certainty but so far they do not look like a keystone unit.

In terms of looks the Tau are smooth and sleek while still appearing quite powerful, the kroot are far too savage for my tastes and the vespid have funky looking heads and the clash of the spikey plates and the Tau armor is somewhat harsh.

In terms of fluff the Vespid are bugs as far as I know, the kroot are carnivores, where as the Tau are pure communists.

However you look at it I just prefere the Tau. That is just my oppinion and all of this is just that, my oppinion.

Tau ARE the main species. The others are just two (of many) small auxilliary races, who just happen to have made it to the tabletop. 'Best' is just a matter of opinion, though overall, Tau are the 'best'. The two other races have their advantages and disadvantages. In game terms, they have more disadvantages than Tau (though that is debatable) probably so that people will stick to using Tau most of the time in their army, rather than having the majority made up by auxiliiaries etc.

Ok, game terms then.

[size=15pt]TAU[/size]

End of story.

Fluff terms.

[size=15pt]TAU[/size]

Aesthetic terms:

[size=15pt]TAU[/size]


The are sleeker, more powerful and simply cooler than any of their auxiliary units.

I know it's boring but I say Tau!

The other races are only great because of the Tau, the Kroot would not even be capable of harming Space Marines/anything with half decent armour without the Tau improving their rifles, and Vespids look like they use Tau tech. They also look cooler (Battlesuits. What else can I say?) and have better fluff.
