>> No.22579625

Massive Taufag here, but this I can agree with. Eldar are quite easy to turn into badasses of the multiverse without too much effort. I find Tau more interesting purely for the fact they don't have many big badass style characters, but Eldar are just too cool for words at times.

>> No.22579630

I don't do the 40K thing, but my chips are down for the Tau.

I am always for the power of SCIENCE! I could never really stand the whole "It's warhammer fantasy, but with guns" aesthetic, and since I think the idea of space bugs holding guns is silly as shit, and the robot faction is far more "Shambling Egyptian Skeletons with guns" than the dystopian future skull-faced robots from the Terminator movies, so for me it's always boiled down to either IG or Tau, but I generally veer more on the Tau side, as they tend to sport more sweet ass robots per unit type.

Course, if they actually made AM as a playable faction, they might be able to win my interest.

Back to the topic at hand, since we're talking Tau VS Elfdar, I'm putting my chips down with the buxom blueberries, no question.

Eldar at their worst are retarded pansies who are ripped apart easier than wet paper tissues buttfucked more often than a third rate porn star while looking ridiculous all throughout.

I would invite Cestree to a mildly expensive restaurant, have a deep and meaningful conversation with her, and invite her back to my place for some coffee.

We would talk late into the night, until she would feel so comfortable and carefree that she would doze off right on the couch.

Then I would, after she has become asleep, carry her into my guestroom and tuck her into the bed and wash the dishes.
I would go to my bed after this and set the alarm to an early time to prepare breakfast.
Of course, I would bake some food and give it with her as she goes back to her home.

Gets into that weird "definition of maturity" thing. I mean, she's a xeno. In context, that'd be the primary stigma attached regardless of her age.

From my read of the lore, it sounds like she'd strike most humans as reasonably normal for a 20-year-old, maybe with a bit of a mercurial temper, but would still be considered laughably young by eldar standards, to the point that her being a warlock at that age is a bit surprising.
