So 3.7 if now officially released, adding Harlequin allies to both the Eldar and the Dark Eldar.

So, it's a good time to thank fuggles2k and the original Dance Macabre team for their work, and if it peeks your interest, you can try the full race mod here:

Next, 3.8, and the stupid blue squids (Sorry, Tau) get a little attention, Ad Mech get some allies, and some other gumf................

Perhaps the Tau could use their Ethereals to channel or "summon" the real progenitor of their race... The xel'naga. The combination of Tau and Protoss tech, combined with the conclaves sorcerery...

Just imagine a kroot pack with zealot armor and psi blades...

I'm sure you are wondering what color the sky is on the planet where I live... It is blue, however, I see fuchisa, the color of change...

Could you troll any harder?

I'm always a little saddened when someone says the Tau were made or influenced by someone. Because a new race can't cut out a piece of the galaxy on their own, no sir.

The Zerg and Tyranids are both the Xenomorphs and the Starship Trooper Bugs combined, in case you actually wanted to know.

Both drew inspiration from classic science fiction and fantasy. To say one drew from the other implies either is the least bit original.

Protoss would win. Zealots wreck **** up.

I never considered the Starship Trooper bugs... A Hive Tyrant squeezing out a few hundred zerglings, Hollywood used the idea of inter species mixing and has box office success!

As for this troll, well I like to think I embrace the "Greater Good" too and I apologise for denying the Tau of their own roots.


P.S. On a lighter note, if I share how Captin Krunch took a ride on the U.S.S. Enterprise, would that ruin anyones breakfast?? :)

Just having fun.... On a serious note, Warhammer 40K and Starcraft are similiar in many ways, who stole from who?

And who would win in a battle, Tau, or Protoss?

Hmmm...Appears only the Tau or Necrons have the tech specs to control the Tyranids. Necrons with the Necronalysis or Tau with the Teluscom Array. These gadgets control Tyranids that come into the range of any battle - Necrons version has Nids as allies & fight among themselves (Necrons dont take prisoners in the end)...Tau version more refined with Nids under total control as allies with a time limit. Just a unique suggestion.

Hmm.. Well, I'd say Tau.

Why? Well, they're the only race I can come up with that would ally with a bunch of Robotic Space Egyptians. So yeah.

And don't you dare to remind me of the idiotic Blood Angels and Necrons BFF thing that happened in the Codex, why?

Because MATT ******** WARD wrote it.
