    Neither. Eldar and Tyranids both have s-tier game against both. Right now the codex factions are pretty even in power level; there have just been more Imperium and Chaos codices than other armies to this point. But we still have Tau, Necrons, Drukhari, Harlequins, Genestealer Cults and Orks on the way.

      I cannot wait for the Ork codex. Given what the Nids got, I have high hopes that they can give some good tools to an army that has a strong base.

    Honestly, if we’re talking of “Imperium” and “Chaos” as singular factions in the same vein as Orks or Necrons, there’s a problem. Soup is far too permissive in 8th.
