I'd have to say Dwarfes respectivley. Even though I'm an Empire/ Chaos player in Warhammer, I just think their codex has a lot of cool options to mix and surprise oponents.
Almost every other army has a unit/s or character/s your not particularly afraid of. If its because they just really arn't good or just not big in number. But almost every single unit in a dwarf army is kind of scary. Even their hand gunners can be fricken awesome. Man... I don't want to get a dwarf army... but i must.

I've always had a place in my heart for the men of Norsca. I mean there just living their normal lives when WHAM a huge Chaos invasion happens and their world is turned upside down as they fight for their gods. Not to mention Vikings kick all kinds of ass.

I don't like to put down the high elves for all you high elves players out there. but idk it just seems like elves dont look very manly. I do like the white lion though. Its the one respectable unit so i bought the models. I guess its all opinion though.
Woodelves look alright but I use all the chick models, because the dudes look lame (again my opinion). So its an all chick army.

I probably have 2 first the lizard men who own most of an entire continent and are the only people to succesfully invade the dark elf capitol. Then it would have to be empire specificly warrior priests there is something realy realy appealing about guys with HUGE warhammers bashing stuff

knowledge is power, hide it well

Lizardmen. Like comon they are walking talking thinking dinosaurs they're evrykids dream. Ever since i saw my friends army 5 yeaars ago i loved them ( it might have been the fact that i was 8 at the time). They can also destroy whole races if they felt like it!

Has to be dwarfs for me. The background is really well done, the grudge bearing, stubborn, traditional beings just appeal to me. Perhaps because my personality is rather similar to that of a dwarf really...

as my Name Suggests my favourite army is the Vampire counts, People have never said one single models looks good on its own, but rather the Huge United look my army has when its all side by side, After skimming through skaven, empire, bretonnia and lizardmen, I found the Vamprie counts Book, I instantly Loved what I saw and have collected them ever since, (BLOOD KNIGHTS RULE FTW!!)

Empire, without a doubt, Empire.
Just something about the completly mediocre humans having to hold back all comers, even the "chivalrous" Brettonians that should be their friends and neighbors. Why doesn everyone have a hard on for destroying the Empire? Because noone likes an underdog that can still win. Should the empire stand a chance against any one of the other races, Kislev excluded? Hells no! Yet they still remain due to the stubborn tenacity of your everyday common farm hand, given a sword and willing to die for his country!
Plus I love the Renasance, Germanic flavor!

The Empire, no doubt. Usually I side with the bad guys when collecting armies, but then there's the Empire. I love the looks of the figures, the technology they bring to the field, and well the general "underdog" feeling I get when I see them. I started out with the Empire when the Halberdiers where fat and you got 8 in a box. It was an expensive army back then, and my goal was to own the War Wagon! I've come full circle and have started to collect them again. It's nice to paint human flesh again LOL Fluff wise, their stories are great! Warrior Priests are just soooooo cool!
