Hi

I'm fairly new to Fantasy, having only played two or three games.I've got a 1000pt+ force of Orcs and Goblins, which is just BfSP with a unit of Orcs, a BSB and a Boar-Mounted Big Boss. That army was to get to grips with the rules and testing the rules/what type of army I wanted. Now I know that I would like in an army:

Movement: This really started to annoy me with OnG.
Leadership: I hate Animosity. I also hate it when my units run off randomly, before being run down.
Close Combat: This is a really interesting stage of the game for my.
Magic: That's what makes Fantasy different from 40K, in my eyes.

I'm a fairly good painter, and I'm thinking of getting a new army which will be my main one. Using the great thread here on Heresy I've taken down the chooses to two: Ogre Kingdoms and Daemons of Chaos. I have had a little experience painting Daemons, and Ogres look kinda hard to do, but Ogres seem slightly better at some things... *looks at Leadbelchers and smiles...*

Can anyone give me advice on which would suit me better? And can anyone share with me some experience with either of the two armies?

Thanks,
Midnight

Great, I'll save up to buy the book for either but ultimately, wait until the new rules are out.

EDIT: Looking at the models/background, I like the look of Ogres a bit more. Has anyone got any tips on painting them? I'm not good with grey. There is a guide on GW but like most of their guides it produces so-so results while trying to get you to buy 50000 paints to do a foot.

ANOTHER EDIT: Hang on, 8th Ed. ogres are looking like they are being toned down BIGTIME. Ah well, back to painting green...
