Default Most popular main army

Hi. This question has been in my mind since i started, what is the most popular main army, i mean some people say marines, but there are two stores near my house, on has mostly only Tau, the other Orks. So... what's your main army?

P.S. im sorry if someone else already started a thread like this, but i didn't see it.

Fear the Darkness Within yourself, for there is no escape, there is no Mercy. Be afraid of the Dark, for it's here...

Im pretty sure that Space marines.

I've read that Space marines and Chaos make up 50% of GW's sales. So must be popular!

I started collecting Necrons, while my son did chaos.
My son switched to Nids and I took over his chaos when the 4th ed codex came out.
Finally, my son built a Daemon army and I did SM.

My favorite is chaos, but not by much.

Yes, I will be using the lash on that unit again so I may touch your models a second time.

I guess Witch Hunters and Daemon Hunters didn't make the list? I find the Dark Eldar no more probable than them.

I really like the idea of the deamon hunters, but it just sucks a little that they are basically Space marines and imperial guard. Not that these anything wrong with either of those armies, its just they are pretty much the same with a few special rules and extra characters.

Would of been cool if they were more original.

The glorious all singing, all dancing, all conquering Imperial Guard. Why? Because they're just plain ordinary humans with a bit of training, some cardboard armour and a flashlight taking on the untold horrors of the 40K universe..... Oh yeah, and they've got tanks, lots of 'em....

Hang on, do you mean 50% of the 40k sales? I can just about believe that with a little bit of effort. But 50% of ALL GW's sales? No way, not by a long shot.

Yep, and 50% of those marines are THEM BLOODY SMURFS!! Honestly if every ultramarine model became a reality in the 40k fluff maccrage would have been a slaughter, and the eye of terror would have been invaded wiping out all the traitors, and the orks and tau would have been iradicated long ago.

Still, GO TYRANIDS!!!

Orks are my favorite. Then I've got a necron army going. I'm slowly doing a Dark Angel army as well, but I haven't played it.
