Thing is "most friendly races" are not really friendly towards the Imperium.

They brainwash and corrupt some of Imperial planets populations and put the rest onto concetration camps they are as friendly to humanity as the Westoid 1% are to the rest of world.

TBH fam, I thought that the Dark Eldar (and especially Wyches) will either get hyper-sexualised (a respectable approach) or will go for the maximum fucked up/BDSM/goth look. The artwork they presented is no fap material, but it doesnt provoke disgust either - its really like something out of a sunday morning cartoon (and honestly the animated Battletech series for example had wilder shit than this). Weak.

If they dont want to make Eldar hot space elves, they should go for the proper alien representation at least. I mean I sure as fuck wouldnt realise those are supposed to be Dark Eldar Wyches if the picture didnt have it written on it and that´s a pretty good sign they are doing it wrong.

PnP Rogue Trader featured both as NPCs/enemies, though as far as I know only Dark Eldar had stats for playable characters (they had their own sourcebook).

That what I meant, I think orcs are on the table too.

Yeah, it's unfortunatly just a bland copy paste of the most recent mini for wyches. :decline:

Eldar and Tau are most friendly races for the Imperium and humans will gladly kill them with fire, we love the setting for other things.
The Eldar...the same group that literally let millions of humans die to save a (comparatively) much smaller group of their own?

The Tau....the same group that perform mass brainwashing and sterilization on their own allies? Especially the poor schmucks they persuade to betray their former teams and side with them?

There are reasons why the Imperium has taken a "keep finger on trigger" policy to these groups when dealing with them.

Wait, so wych (heh) is it?

* Eldar are too human like, they're supposed to be impossibly lithe and slender by human standards, clearly alien.
* These Eldar aren't conventionally hot enough by human standards for me, knees too pointy, 0/10 would not bang.

The wychs are, as was mentioned, basically just the gw models. The Eldar ideal of beauty isn't T&A, so why would wychs have fat asses?

In literally any other setting the Tau would be the villains. It's just that everything is so fucked and the Tau are a little more subtle than the Imperium with their dickery that they look good by comparison. They're still cunts.

Yeah, Eldar don't even have human anatomy. Big titties and arses shouldn't be a thing on them.
40k isn't Mass Effect, no banging aliens here. Unless it's with a gun, that is.
how bout 3 boobs, that sufficiently non-human?

(in more seriousness, "don't even have human anatomy" is just not true.)

Eh, I vaguely recall throwaway lines about Half-Eldar in RT, since D&D had Half-Elves so of course that was a thing, but even if the Eldar is fuckable, she shouldn't be into it the way a human is.

Knowing Owlcat she's probably a lesbian.

Does RT even count though? Rogue Trader is so far apart from 40k it's arguably not even the same setting. More like a prototype for what turn into 40k.
