Alpha Says hi!!!

Hello everyone, My name is Alpha, You can call me Alpha or whatever ells you wish I answer to many names.

Long story short, well not really it is kinda short anyway...

I am looking to start playing warhammer 40k with some friends who have been playing for some time now, I have yet to look over the rules or any of that I simply jumped in and decided I wanted to do Chaos Daemons because well they look brutal. I have chose Nurgle as my one and true god of decay and destruction.

Any ideas/hits/tips/ or other Advice from anyone out there on what to start with? I am poor so I cant spend lots O money sadly but I just want to crush my friends on the battle field for self satisfaction and the surprised look on there faces when they lose to me on my first game.

I take criticism well so feel free to open up and be as blunt (not what your smoking...) with me as you want to as I will do the same.

Hey, Welcome to Heresy . Check out the Chaos Daemons tactica forums for more information, seeing as I know next to nothing about Chaos Daemons.

Welcome to Heresy Online.

Have a mooch about the boards and ask any questions.

Do you have the Daemons Codex yet?

Their not the cheapest army to collect but they are not the most expensive either.
The bonus is you can use most of the minis for Warhammer Fantasy as well.

If money is an issue, I'd look into a Battleforce. They're pretty good value if it has what you're looking for, and it's got a good balanced force to start with. Otherwise, just mosy about the forums and Welcome.

welcome to heresy online!
My advice would be to buy the chaos daemons codex first and slowly build up your army with the basics (2 troop choices: plaguebearers/nurglings, and an HQ choice: Great Unclean One)
While Nurgle is awesome, the daemon models are a little pricey (because they're all metal). If you really like them though I'd go for it.
For gaming, Daemons are pretty good (the people I play with would always complain that they were unfair when I used them), you may be able to beat a few people the first time if you plan your moves well. a good place to get advice for playing with them is the tactica articles on this website and even a few on hope this helps .

Welcome to Heresy.
To me, Chaos Daemons seems a good choice for a starting army, but always make sure you get practise models first... Also, you might want to get a codex, it helps a lot in understanding things about certain units and abilities, it will give you a good introduction to tabletop gaming.
Oh, and with Nurgle... Sorry to say it but... Slaanesh is just so much better.
Anyway, enjoy your time here. Here's to a long future.
