Voted for Demons.

I myself am a very con-Space Marines guy. Never got the whole awesome thing, that apparently a lot of other people have.

One of my mates play Demons, and to his experiences:
Deepstrike misshaps: Not as common as Deepstrikes-of-awesomeness.
Bad armor save: Counter-able, with some cover planning etc
Unforgiving: Well I would say most armies are at some point.


So personally, I would go for the Demons. They seem alot more fun than Space Marines to me aswell.

Blood Angels are a excellent force to use, thoguh i'm not sure i can compare them to Daeomns (As i have never used them) I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed by BA or DC

Consider my vote a fangirl trying to get more people to follow BA

Daemons:

Pros:awesomely fluffy, great new models, and people won't bitch about you being op'ed.

Cons: Will never be called op'ed.

Blood angels:

Pros: I got nothin.

Cons:golden nipple armor.

Daemons don't have poor armour saves BECAUSE THEY'RE FREAKIN INVUL SAVES!!

sorry that is my favorite part of daemons you can go to a tourny where people are all set for transport armies and mech armies and vehicle this and that and then BOOM "AP 2? NOOOO- lol jk I'm daemons get my save no matter what"

then you have nurgle army of "rofl I have 4+ invul...damn I failed one...rofl I have 4+ FNP" they PISS ME OFF!!!!! Also I must agree with Putch it sucks to be "That one (enter new army here) player" trust me I have to deal with that shit constantly even though I played SW before the update I've had people not play me because I play SW

Daemons, they're just too cool

Too many people play Blood Angels, gets old after a while and when your playing them. Go up against another player who uses them, and then another and then...ALL HAIL NECRONS!

Blood angels are strong, but if you go in for a game at your FLGS or what have you, you might be greeted by, "Oh man, ANOTHER BA guy!" Trust me. It happens.
Strangely... I'm the only one at my local :p

BA, best pro I can think of: Their Codex is brand new, this means you'll have the army you get for a long time without any modifications (which by GW standards could be quite some time!).

So I'd go for BA.

Not after they taste the sweet blade of a Grey Knight Grand Master nemesis force weapon....


I would go with the Blood Angels... For two reasons, they are loyal to the god Emperor, and secondly, they are not daemons...

Option c:

None of the above.

I loathe both of those armies and would never choose either.
Besides, you took your oath to not do a PA army and then broke it with csm.

Take Ultrasmurfs and confirm the hypocrisy.

:D
it was a moment of weakness the oath was not to take space marines


also

I had to vote Blood Angels just because Nurgle isn't what he used to be, in either Chaos Daemons 40k or fantasy. The difference in toughness doesn't mean as much anymore, the basic troops don't have enough punch to win the day, and Epidemus lists simply don't work against Imperial Guard. In fact, it's pretty much IG that's put Nurgle out of business.

Don't get me wrong, I play Chaos Daemons and I really like them, but Tzeentch or Slaanesh would be a better pairing for Khorne. A mono-Khorne list can also work well, although you won't have any shooting.

He isn't telling you what your list is; he is telling you what your list should be.
