Can't vote yet as you have not put in inquisition.
Mine are BA, CSM, Necrons and Inquisition. Also proxy to use IF allies and have tried out my BA as IH.

From the threads I've seen, Dark Angels and Orks are the most popular. Dark Vengence and new codex for Orks prolly being the main reasons. Might be that these are the only people asking questions because they're more new than the people with a soundly hammered out list

Moved to Polls, because it seems we don't have a poll specifically about most popular 40K army. That's surprising.

Space Wolves and Dark Angels? Playing both the rivals? Also, Space Wolves have been in conflict with Grey Knights.

I believe (for DA and SW) they recently took it out. When you first could ally them, they had to pre-game (or postgame, can't remember) nominate two soldiers to duke out the old grudge. It was quite awesome

I know several people who when allied or fighting SW vs DA still opt to do this ritual. It's quite awesome

In the 6th ed. rule book, DA and SW weren't battle brothers, they were allies of convenience. Now all Imperium are battle brothers. Thanks GW!

Yeah, especially since FW has a billion Nurgle Marine bits and units. Where's the love?

Space Marines are my first and most played army. Other armies that I play include; Eldar/Dark Eldar (always allied, have not played individually yet), Imperial Guard (AM), Grey Knights, Space Wolves (forgot to mark them... woops), Tau and Inquisition.

Aren't Space Marines, Grey Knights, Dark Angels, Blood Angels, and Space Wolves all "the same"? I.e. they are all Space Marines. I only say this because adding them all together would IMO give a better visual indication of just how much more popular SM are than anything else.

Was there ever an actual official Adeptus Arbites list for 40k? I know they were a faction in Necromunda and could be taken as units in 40k, but could you ever take a full list of Arbites?

Ok this survey has actually scared me, the only ones I don't collect are adeptus sororitas, chaos demons and militarum tempestus. Lets be honest I could probably field militarum tempestus from my guard. As for Marines i have my own chapter, crimson fists, black templars, Iron hands, Ultra Marines, Dark Angels, Space Wolves and pre heresy death guard, that is quite a lot of models! I think my hobby is way out of control!

Yup and 100% codex legal too.

I use the IG codex.

HQ I use a Lord Commissar as a Judge/Marshal of the Court with carapace armour and a power maul. I also like to add priests to some units for LD and assault buffs.

Elites I based cyber mastiffs on 40mm base and use them as Bullgryns with power mauls and slab shields. You can also add Tech Priests to taste.

Troops are Vets with shotguns and carapace armour with grenade launchers and flamers mounted in chimeras.

Fast Attack I use scout sentinels and hellhounds (nothing says "disperse citizen" like a 30m gout of flame )

Heavy support Leman Russ, exterminators (The street sweeper) I also might use Eradicators and a Punishers.

I use 2ed shotgun models with 2ed champions and 2ed grenade launchers. I also use Necromunda enforcer models for my HQ, flamer guys, priests and cyber mastiffs. Then I just use standard vehicles with some small conversions.

When you add up all the SM varients it's more than 30%, which is kind of odd considering how rare SM's are supposed to actually be in the universe. However, it's pretty in line with my personal experience.

Im a regular sm fanboy with inq allies, love the modelling opportunities with those guys. If j had more cash id start an ork army beacuse nothing says funny like a giant green cockney alien who just wants a fungus beer and a good rumble.
