I want to know who you believe the "good guys" in 40k are, this is not "what army do you like the most" this is what army you believe is fighting for the best reason and so on, please provide a reason for your opinion, and not something stupid and unlogical like "Space Marines because they are awesome and fight for the Emperor", there is no logic in that and and anybody who says that is clearly a fanboy, speak up!
I believe its the Imperial Guard because there fighting purely for survival and are doing a remarkable job at it i might add . The IG although believe in the emperor and worship him dont willingfully die for his name sake unlike the Space marines although there the good guys as well the IG are just more unwilling to lay down there lives .
There is no good side in the WH40K world. They all seem pretty "evil" to me.
I knwo there is never a "good guy" in anything, but I am asking who you would consider the "good guys", for me the Eldar, they are trying to survive after their society fell, it's a desperate time for them and they are doing all they can to survive, like the Iimperial Guard, except they are hugely numerous and often ridiculed because let's face facts, Guardsmen are weak, it is their numbers that allow them to exist=p

The tanks too. Don't forget bout the chimeras, hellhounds, sentinels, basilisks, leman russes, baneblades, stormblades, and so on.. I think the Imperial Guard are the good guys coz they fight bravely(most of them anyway) for their cause even though they are cut down to the last man in battle. I personally hate the eldar. I think they're really arrogant. Not to mention that most of their farseer's predictions always lead to their doom. Like taldeer when she was beaten twice in WA and DC. Also farseer eldrad(right?) when he was tricked by chaos into communicating with an artifact or something(what was it again?) and his soul was taken/trapped by chaos.
No good guys for me.. But the Imperial Guard stands better for the "poor fellows" category, in my opinion. Charging a heavily fortified Chaos stronghold, clad in flak light-armor and armed with only a lasgun, with a Commissair ready to shot you in the back at the first sight of hesitation is not what I call a pleasant expirience. This is the way things go: Guardsmen have the courage of the cornered prey.. Either they face the nightmarish threats of the Galaxy, or they suffer their Official's wrath. In both cases they are, most of the times, f****d. Poor fellows..
As I stated earlier, there is no such thing as a "good guy", these are just the people who are most commonly to be in the right, in every war, everybody figures their side is the "good" one and defends their purposes, let's look at this this way, we look at police as "good guys" and criminals as "bad guys" yet in the eyes of the criminals, the police are the "bad guys" and they are in the right, perhaps it is the only way for them to get by, this isn't the best example but it proves my point rather well, so maybe I should rephrase the question: Who's side are you on in the overall conflict? This isn't a battle, this is the entire Galactic warfare, so who do you believe is in the right, or at least most in the right?
Nothing is Good. only Degrees of evil. We have Psychopathic Evil, Tyrannical Evil, Barbarically Evil, Arrogant to the point of Evil, Cold soulless Evil, Indoctrinated Evil, and thats about it. The 2 Well-known races that come close to Being "Good" (or less evil) are Eldar, who are Arrogant and selfish, Plus created probably the most "evil" entity in the universe through their Neglect. then you have the Tau, who are pretty good on the face of things, but actually when you think of the fact that they wipe out anyone who doesnt agree with them, and the Tau who seem all unified for a good cause arent actually unified, they are being Controlled and wouldnt go along with the ethereals if it was their choice, they're still pretty damn evil.
I agree IG are prolly the only ones who couldn't be called evil off that list, but they still serve, even unwittingly, one of the Most Evil Tyrannical Xenophobic races, and further its cause. so while they themselves arent Evil, just Indoctrinated, they still Fight and commit atrocities for evil.
Probably the only races who can be called "good" are lesser-known ones, Like the Slaan (even they are pretty bad), and the only truly Good Guys, Some of the Human (and other races sometimes) populations not part of the imperium, who accept Aliens, mutants, and psychics, rather than Burning them.
-EDIT Sorry, i posted at the same time as you :P if it comes down to Who Is in the Right, i'd say Probably Tau, Because it is for a good purpose, Galactic Unification, its just they're "Good" and "right" in the same way the Nazi's were lol they are Practically the same in the way they work.
