And vice versa, the Necrons would be intelligent enough to not attack Tyranid colonies in the same way. It all works out quite neatly.
Incidentally, do Tyranids form colonies? I imagined that they would hang around on a planet for a while when they're consuming it, but after that..? Probably all digested and harvested by the Norn Queens for making into stronger Tyranids, in a similar way to how Rippers dive into pools of digestive acid. That would be smart, efficient and quite Tyranid-like. I can't imagine the Hive Fleets just leaving their soldiers there to roam around the planets they've destroyed and starve, and it wouldn't be very economical for them to board the Hive ships again and to hang about there half-injured until the next battle. Any experience 'nids gain is shared by the Hive Mind, so there's no advantage to keeping individuals alive. It'd be smarter to just make a clones of the best ones and start afresh.
as far as I know, the Necrons have not been aggressively invading the imperium. The necrons aren't attacking Tyranids because their motive is mysterious. They arent expanding their own territory right now, they just happen to get in the way during certain battles.
i can only see nids and crons fighting if the nids were also attacking a world necrons were attacking or if the nids were on a planet crons owned, but u guys are rite, nids dont prob even know crons exist

i think its because de necrons inhabit systems with stars that emhit little or lesser radiation. de nid codex says dat de tyranid fleets are often found in systems 'containing class F21V-K9V stars'. could it be that the necrons are not attracted 2 these star systems?
I wonder if when the Ordo Xenos comes out if it will give us some info to add to our arguement.
And i'm with the idea that the nids don't even, or barely even recognize the presence of the nids. If their goals cause the races to not cross paths that much, the elusive Necrons would stay out of the way. As for Jaspers idea of a de facto arrangement that still ties in, because most likely the Necrons realize the tyranids arn't a logical target right now and to just stay away from them. Still, don't the Necrons want to destroy all life eventualy? In that case wouldnt' they go after the nids in the long run.

nids wouldent attack crons wud they? caus crons are meatal and nids only seek biomatter?
Well, i may not know much, but here's my insight.
If the C'Tan split up, maybe it was 'cos some of them fought. for example, the Outsider went insane, right? I reckon he tried to harm Nightbringer and they began fighting. So, Outsider ran away after he got whooped and returned with a horde based on the base element of insanity-survival, for that is the Nid's basic instinct.
(Nightbringer lounging around in the warp)
Deceiver:Hey dude, guess what
NB: Huh? what?
D: Outsider's back man. he seems *****ed.
(D tells him about the nids)
NB:Aaawww crap... how the hell can the necrontyr survive those things?
D: Welll.... (Tells NB to transform the into necrons so the nids will find it hard to locate them. Go figure.)
The deciever orchestrates the whole damn thing so that his weeny little Tau can prosper and create an empire. Stupid midgets.
