Right Folks, something to get your brains working (if they are not doing so already) :p If all the current W40K Races were included in this, who would come together and who would not. - Not making much sense - didn't think so, so, lets go into more detail and explain the scenario. If a "greater threat" were to occur, which of the species would combine their forces, and which would not? If each race faces total annihilation, would they ally themselves with their most hated of enemy's to overpower and destroy a more common threat? The Races we have in this "scenario"

  • Imperial Guard
  • Space Marines
  • Tau
  • Chaos Marines
  • Eldar
  • Dark Eldar
  • Daemon Hunters
  • Witch Hunters
  • Tyranids
  • Orks
  • Necrons

Now, it would be common sense for the Imperial Guard, Space Marines, Daemon Hunters and Witch Hunters to work together (as they would do anyway) - It is also logical to conclude that the Eldar and Tau would also be welcome in this temporary alliance. However, this leaves some races oblivious to this. Tyranids and Orks. I don't believe that either of these sides (whether they face total extermination or not) would ally themselves with anyone. - Neither of them benefit from it. The Chaos & Dark Eldar I believe would in turn, form their own alliance, though the Necrons... - I can't say on who, but I believe the Necrons (to save themselves) would join with a "team" - In theory, you would think that all "sides" excluding Tyranids & Orks, would all join together for the needs of survival. However each side would be keeping a very watchful eye on each other. Also (seeing as the Tyarnids and Orks are apart from this) - They could be the invading force. We know that if the Orks were organised, they could do a lot, and the Tyranids - their full force hasn't been seen yet, so a "full invasion fleet" - that could do some damage also. Anyhow - Discuss...

uum eldar and space marines can ally to as they did many times. also chaos may trick orks into fighting with them, or orks will agree to join chaos, because orks arent that stupid..and they both are destrcution forces and this happened before.

I think Imperium/space marines, Tau, Eldar would join Chaos would probably manipulate orks, Dark Eldar would probably be bought as Mercs by Choas Tyranids would stand alone, so would Necrons

The tau would want to join with the Imperium, whether the Imperium would see past their differences and ally with them 'for the greater good' is unknown. They would ally with Eldar, as they have done before, but I don't think they trust the tau enough.

since no one brought this up, i think orks would unite. if u dont know the background of orks, the expression on ur face would be puzzled. orks are always fighting and when there is no enemy, they become their own enemy. thats why ork clans fight, and they fight till a stronger ork shows all the other orks "who iz da strongst" and unites the certain clan and so on. they are also , i read, drawn to violence, war , and death as moths are to light. any way, if there would be a greater threat, orks in my opinon would unite all clans because thats the only way to beat them. orks would know this and find a follower and go to war. but thats also why they are mildly weak cause they never unite. anyway, also tyranids and orks in my opinon were to unite they would conquer all opposition. orks in their numbers and strength and tyranids with thier genestealing abilties to help fight the enemy would be a big help too. but orks wouldnt join up with them. they would have a better chance to unite with themselves than joining anyone else. and i also think tyranids would feel the same. as far as chaos goes, they wouldnt unite with anyone either in my opinon except maybe the greater threat so they can do their dream of conqeuring all. but also i think chaos would backstab the first chance they got. other than that, lets throw a monkey wrench in the game. wats ur opinons on what would be a greater threat? i say the gods would desend upon the universe with wrath and try to get the emperor to join them. that would suck too. also other powers such as the nightbringer, deciver, and the other ctan would be bad too. just throwin in my 2 cents

Paragraphs? Anyway, here is my list, and the Scenario. The Necrons attack the Tyranids, in Massive scale. There is a huge war, with little of the other races intruding. The other races form alliances, simply to survive and kill the winners of the Big ass war. Good Guys: Eldar Space Marines Imperial Guard Adeptus Custodies Tau Imperial Navy Adeptus Mechinus Evil: Chaos Dark Eldar for a little while, but I'm sure Chaos will kill em' Orks.

If the combined forces manage to kill the winner, along with other little battles between the Factions, the factions will probably just split apart, and ot will be Warhammer 40k again, just with two missing races.
