Orks are more of a "nuisance that will never go away tier" sort of thing. To the imperium as a whole anyway, obviously orks can fuck the shit out of a given system. But they'll never be able to take terra. Only Tyranids or 'crons could do that, due to sheer numbers.

The necrons took on an entire galaxy at once including an alliance of species bred just to fight them commanded by the most powerful race in existence.

The necrons won.

A proper necron awakening would literally curbstomp the imperium in ways even the eldar couldn't imagine - the eldar don't view the imperium as shit yet are terrified by the necrons. Lets us not forget the other enemy of the eldar people is a fucking god.

We don't know if they're really running. The Astronomican is attracting them.

Besides, they've practically surrounded the galaxy, so that doesn't really match the "they're running from something" idea. Unless they're running from a general lack of biomass to harvest.

Question is, who wins at the end? Tyranids or 'crons? Do Tyranids even care about the Necrons? The 'crons certainly care about killing 'nids, but since they have no biomass to harvest, would the nids simply move on?

They are an ever-expanding, ever-advancing empire. Unlike the Imperium and Eldar they incorporate the strengths, technologies and populations of other species to bolster their own. Not only this, they are the sole ideological threat to the Imperium, since they are capable of not only conquering Imperial worlds but also converting them. Who wouldn't prefer living under Tau rule to the Imperium?

>> No.9234982

>>9234944

In theory the nids arel oltastic to the c'tan, as they represent a swarm of food that is virtually never ending.

The necrons themselves shouldn't bat an eyelid as a lot of tyranid tactics/biomorphs don't mean shit to them.

Seriously, they occupy a very tiny region of space, and the only reason they're even allowed to exist is because the Ultramarines (who could wipe them out in two decades even without Mat Ward fluff) are too busy defending their own shit from the 'nids.

They did. Tyranids were about to descend on the planet, necrons came in and blasted them while still in orbit.

The sad part is that the Tau welcomed the necrons as saviors. Upon arriving to the welcoming party, the necrons proceeded to rape the tau. The end.

Eldrad is the greatest among us. He is the sun which eclipses the light of our stars. He is Ulthwé and the fate of our kind rests in his hands. His eyes are the keenest, no detail goes unnoticed. Four thousand runes can he cast, guiding our path through torment and war, death and salvation. He is the pathfinder, the seeker, the true guide. Even your race has trembled before his might, though you may not have known it. It was he who guided us to the Ork known as Ghazghkull, and commanded us to steer his path to your world of Armageddon. Ten thousand Eldar lives would have been lost if he had not done so. What sacrifice is a million humans for such a cause?

He knows your affairs better than you do yourself. He warned that weakling seer you call Emperor of the treachery of Horus and the strife which would engulf us, just as it engulfed the rest of the galaxy, but your arrogance deafened you to his words. Your stupidity almost destroyed the galaxy, yet you never knew how close the forces of light were to our ultimate defeat. He saw the Great Devourer and warned our kin on Iyanden, even before they had neared our galaxy.

To him all futures are laid out, just as your crude implements of torture are laid out on the cold metal of that shelf. You say we are random and capricious, we say you are vulgar and idiotic. Some of you call us your enemies. All races are our enemy in time. Some of you call us your allies. You are not allies, any more than a butcher’s knife is his ally. You are tools, nothing more. To be used and expended to protect our race, that is your fate.

Your kind think you are so magnificent, yet even now, at the nadir of our power, we can manipulate you, turn you to our ends, as easily as you might pull a trigger and fire a gun. Our time will come again, Eldrad has promised us. Once more you upstart Mon-keigh [subject spits] shall kneel before our power! This time we will not be so lenient! We will exterminate you, every world, every vessel, every one of you! Eldrad has seen the stars stained red with your blood, and it pleases him!

"Idranel of Ulthwe," they all heard Sergeant Tarkus say, when they were close enough to kiss. His deep voice boomed within the helm. "I killed her howling lackeys." He thrust his free hand into Taldeer's unprotected face, pushing plasteel fingers into her eyes. "Then I broke her spine." Tarkus slammed his fist into the Farseer's mouth, making splinters of her teeth. "Then I smashed her head in. Like this." As he drew back his huge fist, the blood on his gauntlet seemed to smoke in the cold dawn air. There was a sickening crunch."
