If you like painting then maybe Eldar? They have a good range of models (though alot of them are metal) and there is alot of fluff about them.

I think i'd have great fun painting some eldar up, they look like a good challenge.

My main worries about eldar though is there doesn't seem to be much conversion potential, and the consensus seems to be that they are one of the tougher armies to play.

I've studied the rundown and narrowed it down to a few choices on which army I want to pick, can anybody help me out?

As of now I'm stuck between:

-Tau
-Imperial Guard
-Daemonhunters

Tau will be the cheapest. Imperial Guard will take the most time to paint up. Daemonhunters will kill your back carrying all those metal minis

Just make a list of pro's and cons to each and let numbers light your way

Any other thoughts? I might do Necrons, but I am leaning more towards Tau.

AGREED!!!!!!


I was a real threat when me and my friends started because no one went after my GS and Blord Squad. But after about the third game where they ate all of the MAHREENS, they all got the newest biomorph.


The Agro Hat.

So Now then I had to learn how to actually play. Getting certain advantages (Barbed Strangler, Dakka Tyrant) so Now I'm usually the main threat.

I love the Taste of Smurfs in the Morning
