I would like some help in choosing my second Warhammer army. I know that Orcs and Goblins are unpredictable and often uncompetitive and often don't use lots of things in Fantasy like skirmishers, and want to collect another army. I don't know very much about the armies or fluff, as I am new to Warhammer FB and don't have any favourite model ranges. It would be best if not a horde army, with about 170 models in my O&G I don't want too many more, while an 'evil' army might be good as in Fantasy as neither O&G or any of my 40K armies (Dark Angels, Tau possibly 'nids in the future) are really 'evil'.
Here is what I think of a few armies:
Defiantly No:Dwarves-Mainly as they are foes of the O&G.
Wood Elves-Just don't like them.
Probably not:Empire-I just don't like their foot soldiers clothes.
Hordes of Chaos- Well armoured, elite warriors? Like my marines a bit.
Skaven-Horde or cheesy from what I've heard.
High Elves- Like Eldar but I don't like the models as much.

I quite like Vampire Counts, not only are they being updated, but I like zombies and vampires.

(Sorry I some thing's wrong with the poll I am attempted to make, it's my first one.)

from what you've said an undead army is for you.

I would say Vampire counts since You can play them as either a horde army or a very elitist army. The first option is necromancers who spend every turn raising more cratues of the night and the second option is vampires leading heavily armoured dead things

ogre kingdoms are the way to go definately not a horde army one of the cheapest armies to collect and fantastic minis and great fun to game with

I'm defiantly leaning towards VC and might get a Spearhead soon, though I do have my DA, Tau and Orc armies currently collecting and (slowly) painting so it might be a little while before I get anything, or I might just get into it and overload my workload... Still most of the new models look great, even if the crypt ghouls aren't very good, not humanoid enough.
