Try and guess what mine is, come on guess........

If you do know then they are my favourite because they are so alien! seriously besides a strong competition from Tau how much more alien could you get? Although there is a lack of vehicles [non at all] they make up for it by having a variety of options, even for troops. And seriously as far as rules go Vehicles vs Monsterous Creatures in survivability monsterous creatures win outright. Besides super tanks [e.g baneblade] vehicles only technically have 1 wound and no armour save. So go Nids! [givaway].

It's just you - Sisters of Battle are part of Witchhunters.

Anyways, my favourite armies are Imperial Guard and, to a lesser extent, Orks. I just love the hell out of horde armies, apparently.

Up until the last Chaos Codex came out, I would have said Chaos. But now it rests firmly in the hands of Tau, with Orks being a close second.

See pics of my Orks, Tau, Emperor's Children, Necrons, Space Wolves, and Dark Eldar here:

Me too! I think it may be the only "Real" army in the game. Tau perhaps as well. In the sense, they actually have to use the morale rules in earnest, that they have plausible vehicles and army compositions, they don't really have any magic, psykers, telelporting etc, and that the biggest characters they can field are, well, not as comic book 'esque.

Something honest about it.


I take it back, I want to say Eldar now that I have seen the new IG codex. I think the "orders" special rules are horrible, its a thinly veiled exception rule unique to IG to let them do things no other army can do, it's as bad as faith points, which I think is the worst mechanic in the game. BOO.

Now I say Eldar, because they have less unique rules, actually use the morale rules sometimes and have a wide variety of units and great color schemes and mini variety and support. (I still like Tau also).

Hm that's interesting - I'm pretty new to the game (although I've 'kept up with it' a little throughout the years, had a couple of false starts etc), but the Faith and Order rules struck me as a great way to individualize the different armies.. Granted, I've only had a quick peek at the guard codex.

What is it that you think is so bad about these mechanics?

Oh and it's also funny that I only the other day was thinking how - hm, what's the word here - "standard" the Eldar were compared to just these two armies in particular (IG, WH), while they are supposed to be the exotic ones.
I guess that could be a reason why these mechanics could be percieved as bad - they create a need for increasingly more exotic and gamebreaking rules..

Anyway, to answer the topic at hand - Eldar/Ork/WH probably.. Especially fond of the older Ork fluff (the RT Ork manuals are pretty sweet), and mr Wazdakka

My firs ever army (long since lost to time and moving houses) was Eldar and while I currently collect CSM and orks, I still think Elder are the best. In fact I'm not sure why I'm not collecting the pointy ones... ok that's it, I'm buying an Eldar army tomorrow!

Hmmm but I also wanted to start a Tyranid army... and those orks could do with a few more boyz...

My problem with the daemon army is that if I wanted to play a fantasy army then, well, I'd play Fantasy.

Someone get me a bolter; it's time to take out the trash.

People are like dice, a certain Frenchman said that. You throw yourself in the direction of your own choosing. People are free because they can do that. Everyone's circumstances are different, but no matter how small the choice, at the very least, you can throw yourself. It's not chance or fate. It's the choice you made.

The favourite army must be, for me, Space Marines, cause it's the first army I started to collect with Battle of Macragge.
My new army is Da Orks. Mainly because I got many of them in AOBR but they are also a lot of fun to paint and play with!

Win/Draw/Lost statics
Space Orks: 11/1/1
Space Marines: 10/2/5
Lizardmen: 8/2/3
High Elves: 13/2/2 and one tournament victory!
Dark Eldar: 1/0/0

I agree, tyranids are my favourite. Recently started building a nid army. I like the models and most of the units in the army (not a fan of nidzilla or stealer shock), even though some need fixing.

I don't have a single favourite. At the moment I'm on a 'Nid binge, so that's what I chose.

I'm a big fan of Dark Eldar as well, I also wouldn't mind starting a Tzeench army.

Own and play
+/- 3,500 Dark Eldar (8% painted)
+/- 4,500 Tyranids (99% painted)

I think you may have made up something there.

this poll is for "whats your faveroute army"

not "whats your faveroute army IN PRINT"

and BTW, Space Wolves are still tourny legal. In print or no.

My thoughts exactly. The first 4 posts are like the 4 stages of evolution of a rumour thread.

1 - Rumour

2 - Sarcastic rebuttal

3 - Sensible discussion

4 - Wishlisting

i have dabbled with a bunch of armies since 3rd edition (i think; whichever one required you to buy dark millennium as the psyker upgrade)

since then i have played chaos, marines, orks, eldar, and created list after list for Nids

I always seem to end up playing chaos! Although, I am in love with wraith lord models and I really want to run an ork horde cause I think it would be fun as hell. But as I said above, my vote is for chaos in any of its four (5 if you count undivided) personalities!

I have a love /hate relationship with anything green.
