I'd be a plague marine.
Bad ass plague powers, don't feel any pain and immortal. Have a band of jolly daemons.
>>
I'm going to say Tau, because at least I can die quickly and my soul will disappear with minimal hassle.
Human and Eldar run the risk of daemons doing nasty soul shit. Eldar are doomed to an eternity of it, and Humans likely get nom'd by the Emperor or just otherwise dissolve into the Warp to be eaten by daemons or something.
Orks are a decent choice, they've got warp protection. On the other hand, I'm not very orky. Not going to enjoy it much. Tyranids are just fucking locusts and Necrons just have a real shitty eternity to spend as a spoopy skeleton robot.

Nah, Tau generally get a decent life and a quick death. Which is about all you can hope for in 40k. Plus if I go Earf caste I probably don't even have to interact with the battlefield.

If you are at least a Necron Immortal or higher up the ladder suffering a trivial death is no longer possible.

Probably cheating, but Krork's are technically still in 40k due to time warp bullshit and that one Traz has in stasis. If that's out I'd go with Hrud, because just being able to short of chill out and travel the universe because everyone forgets you exist would be pretty alright.

Necrons Overlord with personality quirk who thinks this is all a big VR game

As much as I want to get my ribcage shattered into my thoracic cavity on a glorious crusade, I'd probably say Necron. Even as a base-born cur, I'd be better off than really all of the other races.
>>
>>64001180

Necron is the right choice. Either Overlord or Cryptek. (Because who doesn't want to be a Egyptian skeleton robot immortal science wizard?)

The Ork life if I get to keep my head canon of them reincarnating between dying in the materium and dying in their brawl in the after life. Being a git runs the risk of you reincarnating into a gretchin or worse.

This.

Being a Rogue Trader is by far the most rewarding 40k life for my personality.

What does it say at the end of the campaign mode? That the Tau castrate all humans as standard policy (something that would make absolutely no sense and contradicts other parts of the lore) or that they castrated the rebels on one human planet that rebelled against the Tau after they became a part of their empire?
>>
>>64004310
It says that the human birthrate dropped so low it was completely negligible. While people may not have been physically castrated, they were chemically castrated
>>
>>64004782
On that one specific planet where humans rebelled, or throughout all the Tau empire as a matter of policy?
>>
>>64004822
That was on Kronus, but the humans there never rebelled. The planet was invaded by pretty much fucking everyone simultaneously, the native human population there didn't do anything

Blood Bowl is easily heaven for any other occupant of either Fantast or 40k. Funny as one story has two bb players teleport into a battle between necrons and tyranids. Human goes insane, mummy loves it.
