Default Picking an army

I'm thinking about starting a second army however, I am stuck between a number of armies. I would really like to start grey knights because of the fact they can have terminators for troops choices. I like Necrons because the the re animation protocols. And I like chaos space marines because of the fluff and the fact they are corrupt. Does anyone have any thoughts on what army u should go with?

You could always just fluff your Grey Knights with red armor and spiky bits all over them, fluff is fluff, and Necrons and GK can actually ally if you wish to go that route. Have Termies on your front lines, Cron shooters backing them up, and just fill in the HQ and Heavies with whatever.

Go Eldar or Tau then CSM are pretty muc the same as their loyalist counterparts and both GKs and Necrons have a similar playstyle only with lower model count imo. Eldar, Dark Eldar and Tau are far more fragile and therefore require a completely different approach. If you really love the idea of corruption you could even opt for Daemons^^.

I've also been looking into chaos daemons but the thing that turns me off is the lack of fire power, I very much enjoy opening fire on my enemy before I assualt. Is there any infantry in the daemon army that has guns?

There are a few shooting style deamon armies, but they are not particularly strong. If you enjoy shooting why not try some good old fashioned tread head IG?

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

I don't like IG because they are far too mechanised and aren't the best in close combat I prefer softing them up with shooting but I don't like horde armies

Basic Eldar Stats can be found on page 412 of the Big Rulebook and whilst these are Stats for the old Codex, there is not that much of a significant difference to what we have now, if you're only having a cursory glance at them.

Though I take your life, I promise you the stars...
