Orks, Dark Eldar, Space wolves. In that order.

It's amazing how chaos, AM and orks are quite popular in this poll. In my area these are not the most common armies, especially orks.

Orks 9000
Space Wolves 6500
Drukhari 4500

Nids only nowadays.

By my count at the moment 46% of players are in power armor. Geez.

Basically, a WAAC player is usually a poor sport, will argue rules in his favor, will semi-cheat to cheating outright, will argue if you do something that will hurt his chances to win, and will generally be rather unpleasant to play or even be around. It's really all about his attitude, not his list. There are plenty of competitive players who run tough lists, but are fair and pleasant people to play against. Ask yourself this, your GK opponent, is he a douche? Even though his list is tough to play against, did he do anything shady in the game or did he argue a lot? Was he pleasant to play against (not necessarily his army, but the person himself)? Then you will realize whether he really was a WAAC player or not. To me, it looks like your friend is just evolving as a player. It's very common. He plays. He wants to get better. Thus he starts running tougher lists. Soon enough, he will probably be going to tournaments. That's just the natural evolution of many players. You really can't expect him to stay a beers-&-pretzels type of player forever. Just as you prefer casual and friendly games using models that you enjoy, he seems to be evolving into the type of player that wants to be more competitive.

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.


I was thinking the same thing a space marine is a space marine, from my prospective id say 50% of warhammer 40k guys play space marines.

well, that would be about accurate as just under 50% of armies in this poll are power armor variants

I'm really surprised to see AM so high and Tyranids so low. Maybe I need to switch armies

I play AM with Inquistion support right now, but am filling in the points with Tac marines while I continue to build and buy models.

If the Tyranid codices weren't written by utter morons who have no idea how to make the Nids adaptable or competitive, I'd choose Nids every time. The latest Codex is a disgrace, they get about two options each, which is like a menu where the only food choices are dog poo and fungus-encrusted bark (the latter being suitable for vegetarians). Apparently their formations are also rubbish.

What happened to being able to create mutant swarms led by Gaunts with massive heads that are plugged into the Hive Mind? What about the tooled up Carnifexes of yore that scared the hell out of everyone until they ran into Battle Sisters with AP1 bolters and AP1 missiles and cheesy Prayers of Ridiculous Might? (Yeah, don't mention the Sisters to me.)

What happened to Synapse creatures having Eternal Warrior? Why are Tyranid Warriors three times more expensive than Space Marines yet die just as easily? Even more so, with their heads sticking up over walls and bushes.

Er... yeah, sorry for the rant. I've got Death Guard and Nurgle Daemons.

Link to my fiction

“I smell Tyranid,” he said.
“It's probably just Dick's aftershave,” Calgar said, beginning to climb down. The cliff face was treacherous, ready to collapse at any minute.
“I'm not joking, fool,” Mender growled with customary lack of respect. “The Tyranids are highly adaptive. There's no telling how they've evolved to survive on a Space Marine homeworld.”
“Well unless they've evolved an immunity to bullets, I think we're all right,” said Calgar. The ground collapsed beneath his feet. In an instant, the Lord of the Ultramarines was riding a stone avalanche on his arse, straight into the Bug-Monster's lagoon.


If the Emperor wants a totally secular Imperium and religions of all kinds are banned, why would he name his first legion the Dark Angels? Isn't that a bit like a women's group calling themselves the Dark Chauvinists?

"The trouble with the Heresy as envisaged by GW is it just feels like 40K - it doesn't have the feel of a genuinely different society that ten thousand years separation would give you. Whenever I wrote anything that referenced back to those times I always wrote in a legendary, non-literal style. It's as if you were dealing with something like the Iliad rather than literal history - and there you're only talking three thousand years - ten thousand years - that takes us back to the end of the last ice-age... and I don't get any sense of understanding about 'deep time' when I look at anything GW have set in the 40K 'past'." - Rick Priestley

Bear in mind this list mostly pertains to 3rd Ed. with a splash of 4th and 5th.

Imperial Guard
Orks
Tyranids
Tau
Chaos Space Marines (Iron Warriors AND Thousand Sons for a bit)
Dark Eldar
Eldar
Space Marines (Crimson Fists)

Sold all but the Guard, Fists, and Dark Eldar, and since the 3rd Ed. retro group is taking off, intend to build all other 3rd Ed. armies.


ESPECIALLY with plastic Sisters coming...

Well, atm, I've only played Space Wolves and an all BA/Salamander based dreadnought force here in 8th.

But I only returned to playing a few weeks ago & I have a lot more armies in storage.
