            Yes. Ironically that means quite a few people would only buy Eldar models specifically to abuse them during times where they were very strong. Those sorts of people aren't well liked and it generally just tends to sour other players opinions on Eldar even more.

        New lore is that Primarchs are daemon souls Big E stole and since only men can be evil only men can be Primarchs.

        Once Big E dies new Female Yas Empress will kill the Primarchs, magically come upon a way to purify daemon souls to make them good and create new uncontroversial Primarchs with equal numbers of men and women (no white men though).

    90% of the time xenosfags are just secondaries who don't play the game, thus rhey don't realize that xenos themselves aren't popular. When a xenos army is strong people might pick up some of their models to be a bit competitive, but even that's a rarity and usually only seen at tournaments and the like. Go to any GW or even normal hobby store and you're almost guaranteed to have a dozen dedicated Imperium or Chaos players for each dedicated xenos player, because only gays really like xenos.

        Meanwhile everyone laughs at you because you know nothing about the game or setting or characters or factions, that hasn't been spoonfed to you by /twg/ or other threads where you pick up scraps of information.

        You're like one of those typical "FOR THE EMPRAH" normies who idolise a version of 40k that has been dead for over a decade, and who dont even realise the 40k you pretend to like, doesn't even exist anymore.

      The majority of the fanbase are "secondaries" because

      1) The models are expensive as shit for how low quality they are
      2) A lot of people aren't within liveable, reasonable distance of a Games Workshop store so they can play with others

      Actually disgusts me how garbage the plastic is on GW minis. I can pay $170+ for a 500 point set, or $60 for a Master Grade Gunpla imported from Japan which involves all the exact same painting techniques with a much larger canvas for freedom of expression, and it looks cooler on my shelf. Fuck GW, I'm glad I stopped buying their shit. Absolutely no respect for the customer.

    40k is very, very human focused. There's also the fact that some xeno factions aren't really set up to be protagonists, like the Nids, and some factions like DEldar are so ludicrously edgy that it would be a hard sell regardless. Which is to say it could be done if there was more imagination involved, but barely any games ever get made that don't feature human protagonists in general.

    Xenos are really only mean to be antagonists, they are very one dimensional when compared to humans, pretty much anything you are looking for in a xeno faction you can find in a human sub-faction and more fleshed out.
