    Well, all that proves is that SM do looker cooler and are the one's that grab the attention. Tau aren't exactly a pulling force when it comes to looking cool.

    Thats not what I meant,

    put it this way, if you walk past at GW store, do you see cardboard stands of tau or SM? whats the vast majority of units in display cases? space marines.... so people who are going to impulse buy based on walking past or browsing are people who like the sM aesthetic.

    Simply put SM have the vast majority in advertising, so theyre going to have more people who think they look cool. because the people who would think orcs or nids or tau looko cooler just walk past because theyre not on display to get them into stores.

    I've never really seen people say the Tau look cool in the GW shops and tournaments. Maybe some of weapons, but not in terms of aesthetics. Then again it might just be like that where I go.

    I still can't see Tau being cool in terms of aesthetics.

    I saw a discussion on subjective interpretations of aesthatics, and seeing no means of logically resolving subjective concepts, I chose the most common illogical means of resolving them.

    No, the most common would be "Stfu n00b, I'm right, your wrong roflz0r"

    Oh, I don't know ... he is a giant demon primarch; that sounds pretty powerful to me! Unfortunately, he sort of distanced himself from the legion, so he is no help on the tabletop.
