I would like everyone who reads this to say what army they play and why they choose that army. Thank you for all contributions.
Kill one man you're a Murderer.
Kill ten you're a Monster.
Kill a hundered you're a Hero.
Kill a thousand you're a Conqueror.
Greetings, my name is Shas'o Tau Dev'n Kauyon, O'Dev'n for short.
The Tau'va demands that I fill my role, and so I have and will continue to do so.
If this is insufficient...I have been an avid gamer my entire life. I have had my eye on W40k ever since I moved to Ohio and there was a very active league store down the street. It is however, an extremely expensive game and I am extremely poor. I satisfied myself on my normal gaming tendencies as well as attending tourneys with friends that did play.
I have recently absolved myself to have a 1000 point Tau Army ready to go within the next few years. This mainly because I am in college and I only have time during the summer to tackle such a consuming game.
Spacemarines initially drew my eyes, but that is because everyone and their brother played them...There were, of course, a few Eldar enthusiasts and a Chaos spewer or two...
A few years ago the Tau came out and I was immediately captivated. I know, however, that if I kept dwelling on them I would get distracted from other more important things....
The Tau are less used then SM's IMO, not by much around here, but overall at the very least. This makes them appealing to me. Also, the style is excellent, I'm a manga/anime fan and I love Gundam to death.
The Tau, were for me. End of story.
For the Tau'va!

Ultramarines and Dark Eldar both came in the Starter Box for 3rd Edtion. Rather than throw away the squads I just started collecting the armies.
I'm a big fan of the generic, no frills armies. Special rules are for power gamers (which is fine). So the Ultramarines were very appealing.
The Dark Eldar fluff ad models didn't really appeal to me and it wasn't until I read the Codex that I got really interested. They play very differetly than a Space Marine army, so they are a good second army to have (you get to change up your playing style). Thier weapons options are few and that keeps it simple. The possible combinations of effective unit and army compositions as well as effective tactics are also narrow in scope (tons of useless configurations though), again keeping it simple.
