Hi all, I am after a list or 3 that I can stick to that will cope with many different armies when playing at my club. I'm the sort of person that is ok at writing lists but I dont get a massive amount of joy from it and due to my inexperience they usually end up rather unbalanced. I'm normally rushing when writing a list too due to being rather busy with work and the kids.

I mostly play Nids, Dark Angels, Eldar, Grey Knights, Orks, Blood Angels, The other knights (can't remember exactly)

Lists can be battle forged or Unbound.

I have a lot of, if not most models out of the codex, a few tanks and 1 Drake. I also have the black legion codex. I can proxy most stuff too as my clubs ok with that. Be'lakor, Cypher and helbrute dataslates, too.

Anyway, please feel free to throw in a few ideas. The last list someone wrote for me I used in a tournament and I just got better and better with it and ended up beating quite a few old schoolers :) thanks neferhet!

The only thing I can suggest is to take models that have options. For instance, maybe take some squads of Noise Marine 'Havoc's, since you can field some Sonic Blasters and Blastmasters together, and with their varying weapon frequencies, the guns can do double duty. You can also take a bunch of Obliterators, because their weapons will always be helpful.

The other option is to just say 'frak everyone else' and make the army list YOU want. My main army right now is 2000 points of Thousand Sons. Yes, I have about 3k worth of models and units, but I have a 'primary line' that I keep for my own preferences and tastes, and you just use it. Let other people adapt to you, instead of you to them. For instance; I hate worrying about heavy armor in my lists, and so if my opponent breaks out a ton of Lascannons, I can smile and watch them bitch that each shot is wasted on a single Rubric Marine.
