I agree with Anph. Orks will be getting a ton of new models soon, most likely anyway, so wait and see.

DA Orks ! for the reasons stated by others but also the ability to scratch build loads of vehicles and do plenty of funky covershuns!

@ wertpop go and check this out it for games of 3000pts + and brings in Superheavy Tanks

I like Guard plus Marines

I also like Guard plus Tau though...

Guard + Marine Apocalypse will give you the chance to represent Space Marine Serfs. Hordes of IG in rhinos and razorbacks, backed up by predators, vindicators, razorbacks, etc. Command elements of real marines and terminators. Could be cool.

Do you mean to fight each other? I've always thought Marines v Guard was a bit like shotguns v a barrel of fish.

But IG can field vast numbers and some groovy tanks I suppose.

Still, massacres will abound.

Go 'nids, just because no-one's said it yet.

Eurgh, Marines allied with nids? Hideous and unthinkable!

Allied with Orks? Blasphemous (tho' just about do-able, if against 'nids or Necrons I reckon).

Go Guard if it's for allies, that's my opinion.

well, orks can be used as mercenaries..... and nids could be captured creatures set loose upon enemies of the empire, all could work. And for those who dont know, im talking about allies :mrgreen:

I love Tyranids, but it's really difficult to wrap my head around Space Marines palling around with them. In the old Codex, there's fluff depicting an Imperial scientist about to be sentenced to death for merely suggesting that there's much to be learned from Tyranids, so fighting alongside them really blows my mind. IG makes the most sense, although the Imperium has (very rarely, and very briefly) made use of Orkish allies to fend off an immediate threat.
