??? ??? ???

if you men what I think you mean then eldar can come up with some "cheesy" or "beardy" lists (there's one that allows raith guard as troops and loads pf wraithlords) and Tau can come up with some cheesey combo's but my money is on eldar



if, like I said, you mean what i think you mean

You think Iyanden is cheesy? That's about the most ill-informed comment I've ever heard. If you have a problem with Iyanden armies, I honestly think you should get your head examined. Iyanden is in the running for the least powerful craftworld out there, along with Beil-Tan. Alaitoc has the disruption table, Ulthwe has the seer council, Vanilla has tri-Falcon with Guardians, and Saim-Hann has the Vyper army of doom. All 3 of those make the 2 WL 3 Falcon Iyanden list look like a joke. And that's just Eldar. The Marine SAFH is nasty as hell. Chaos can do all kinds of stuff that nastier than hell, from IW to all-infiltrating. And don't forget about their special characters, which they like to call Demon Princes.

Again, when I hear someone call Iyanden cheesy, I instantly realize an immutable truth: the speaker has never played Iyanden.

Eldar would be. General rule of thumb is the more star cannons and wave serpents the eldar player has the more cheesy the list becomes.

simply eldar because of 3 starcannons to efficiently knock out any unit you like and there 5000 different units with special abilities not even counting the craftworlds yet

Neither army is inherently beardy - saying that on some boards is effectively smiteworthy.

Eldar have a greater potential to be beardy, which as an Eldar player I'll admit freely. Tau can make some seriously ungodly lists at low point levels, but there is a gap between the low-end games where triple Hammerheads, maxed Crisis suits etc. can dice anything and where dual-FOCs let you take even more - this gap is commonly known as "normal-sized games", making it harder - but by no means impossible - to powergame Tau.

Eldar can put together some utterly fiendish lists, but these are only the players that give the race a bad name. As for the Craftworlds - try building a good Combat Patrol or 500 point list with 35 point Troops, or with an HQ that costs a minimum of 90 points (only realy worth it with a couple of Singing Spears, Fortune, perhaps Guide, etc... bringing the points cost up to ~150 points).

And since noone has addressed this yet:
shad87, if you have not yet read the Forum Rules, please do so - one-word/smiley posts are discouraged, and using poor grammar and spelling are not tollerated.

Everybody knows that Chaos is for powergamers. Khorne rules supreme while nurgle and slannesh finish in a close second. Thousand sons are way behind. =p

1k Sons are the definition of way behind. Anyone who wins with 1k sons is simply a hell of a player. But, after all, "An army with two wounds each ultimately has a lot going for it." Thanks, Pete.
