'Nids - the ones that I liked the look of most. That and the fact Icould paint them anyway I wanted (ensuring it was consistent), and there were no transfers to worry about.

IG - my son likes them because of the tanks.

I picked mine because Black Templars were what was in the box along with DE when I bought my first box set. Then with the new stuff like their own dex and the like coming out later I stuck with them, later wanted some diversity so started Nids and Eldar as well.

I didn't pick my army. My friend and I tossed a coin when we bought the box set together. Heads was SM and tails was DE.

I chose Guard because I got a sentinel, a box of Kasirkins, and about twenty metal promo guys at the Glenn Burnie Battle Bunker grand opening.

Space marines: Love that they are very easy to convert, Easy to paint and very easy to come up with a background for them. And to top it off, You don't need to buy that many to make an effective force.

Guard: Contains my most Favorite Model in the entire Range (Sentinels!), Prefer their playing style, Changes from when my marines get dull.

armoured battlegroup.......because I want 18 tanks (no that doesn't include poxy transports), no other reason needed.....plus tanks are far more fun to paint than hundreds of infantry, and for 3000pts its cheaper than basic guard, coming in at under £500, unlike guard where you'd probably spend that just equipping your troops.

Choose? I want them all!

Ok Chaos was chosen because of the fluff and look of the models.

Orks have become my current focus because of the ability to convert shed loadsa funky vehicles. When I get a legit 1500pt 40k armies worth I'm off to build tons of looted this n that.

Space Wolves: Noble hairy badasses who will fuck your face in with buisness end of an axe if you piss them off. What isnt to love?

Really though, I chose this army because the new models are just fucking fantastic. Also, I am glad, in some ways, that GW has left it up to the fans to create some of the new models such the TWC.

To remove any cheating, we asked the GW salesman to do it. If I knew it was going to take them 11 years to to produce a meaningful update, I would have asked for best of 3 on the coin toss.
Who chose the 2 sides of the coin? Or did you agree on the two?

Cause that's seriously bad luck, getting stuck with DE.
If that was me, I'd just be like- Fuck the toss :|

And yeah, I spose they will be better now, with the update- We'll have to wait and see!

I love the Guard for 3 reasons.

They are humans in this crazy mixed up place. I love this fact and how they are still a powerful, organized military power. I just saw the basilisk model and fell in love as I love artillery, and then I saw the sentinel model and I knew that was my army.

Sound reasoning; Similar to my obsession with Khorne also.

Scary fuckers who will drive your face into the floor with a chainaxe.

-The Space Wolves models are all so nice, Logan and that guy on the wolf (Can something, forget his name completely).
Even the normal wolf guard terminators, look lovely. :3
