I need to start Traitor Marines (when they are released) what is the best way to start a new army? Does the fantasy rule of troops before characters apply? or is it better to get vehicles or characters first?
id write up a basic list or things you can see yourself using every time you play, like a 750 pt list or something.
once you have that stuff painted up and modelled you can start expanding your army. theres nothign worse than buying an army, plying a few games and deciding you dont want to use what youve bought, or dont like the army full stop!
Im with Wraithlord on this one, practice your scheme on your two compusory troop choices then treat your self to a tank or character.
Depending on squad sizes and army your playing (chaos in your case) you can end up with a nice painting ratio of 'one squad to one vehicle or character' for most of the army. I can get bored if I try to paint all troops before the funky stuff.
If they're traitor marines but abox of 10 marines (split them into combat squads later if needed), 10 chaos marines and any commander, be it a Daemon Prince, Bloodthirster or a Space Marine Master. You alwaya need 1HQ and 2Troops to play ANY game (Apart from Character fights etc.) and then, it's all up to you.
