Default What army encapsulates you?

I was wondering what army you think encapsulates who you are?

I figured the reason why I can't find an army that makes me stick to them for so long is because I myself have issues and I can't pinpoint an army which reflects me. Sometimes I think I relate to the Imperial Fists, in doing their duty but expressing doubt like Dorn did, other times I get really aggravated, angry and feel more like a Khorne person, othertimes I just want to have fun and figure Orks or Dark Eldar may be more reflective of me, I just don't know which is why I never seem to nail down an army and have many parts of an army but never a full one finished.

Yeah, I'm in a deep thinking mood :p

Oh I am most definitely Grey Knights.

Evangelical, crusader, elitist Yep I got 'em all.
The Inquisitors touch my egalitarian side as well.

I'm with the Tau, I always try to settle things through diplomacy rather than with violence (most of the time at least....or does sarcasm and belittling someone's intelligence count as diplomacy?). Other than that I also try to get people happy and get them to see the brighter side of things (The Greater Good)

Although I am also very chivalrous and honour bound...so....

I've tried and tried collecting xenos but somewhere, deep down something always stops me from wanting to kill mankind. It happens, exactly the same with computer games with a moral compass (like fallout 3) i'll start my re-play wanting to explore more of the game and then, it'll come to setting of a nuclear bomb or something and I just can't do it. Big fucking softee!

My guard are technically renegade (not chaos) though they haven't told anybody yet, ie they don't fight for the Imperium, they defend their own little patch of the galaxy but I've not got the time or patience to remove the aquila symbols. Dark Angels suit that side of my character too, always something else going on in the background. Meanwhile I've got unloved orks, eldar, chaos and a small but significant tyranid force just lying about, un painted and un played.

My Complete DA collection

That's me breathing fire in my avatar, my aim was a bit off to start but i got all those orks in the end!

Grey Knights for sure, Integrity and Honor are very dear to me, and i have to say i have more then once been called a boyscout or tool. The Inquisition is also there as i really dislike when others easily put aside these aspects for a more personal gain. If you do not have honor then what have you got?

You let Inquisitors touch your what! You can report them for that, you know

Chaos Undivided for me, excess and violence, sounds like fun to me!

Also, Ewoks eat people.
Never forget that.
Ewoks. Eat. People.

Tyranids for sure, because I like to eat people.


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

If someone reverts to having to complain about your grammar, then you already won.

Despite not being particularly religious, or full of faith myself I rather dig the Sisters of Battle. There is just something about their deep level of commitment to the Imperium, and ability to put the needs of the rest of mankind above their own I dig.

Of course things that are so over the top that they're awesome (Exorcists, Penitent Engines, and chain swords that can cleave a tank) help, as do having such a deep level of faith that it can bend reality over it's knee and spank it silly!

Hmmm I would say draw to - but not defined by

Ultramarines (aka. super-smurfs) -
"protect the weak - hold the line!"

Tyrandis (gene-stealers / hive mind army)

Khorne / Tzeench
