Been a fan of chaos in this setting since the late 80s. I generally try and be a pretty decent person(family man etc). Playing chaos gives an outlet for all the deep dark sinister shit that goes on inside my head. Problem was chaos wasn't enough, so i added more chaos(traitor guard) and more chaos(some demons) and then had to find a use for the small number of nids that came in the battle for mccrage set. So i did up some nids.

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.
Too bloody right, with all the horrors of the galaxy I love the fact that a simple guardsman will pick up his laser pen and march against the worst of the worst!

I just love the idea of a bunch of marines descending from the sky of wings of fire and thats why I chose Blood Angels, evver since I joined the hobby 5 years ago I've just loved their fluff and I've been playing them ever since.

Also with the new DE models I've been tempted to start them up, if only to say I have an army of Green Goblins.

I fell in love with chaos marines when I bought the two hard cover books, "Realm of Chaos" and "The Lost and the Damned" way back in the Rogue Trader days. Totally awesome books. From the art, to the stories to the vast and crazy rules, chaos had it in spades over anything else at the time.

Over the years I have stuck with chaos in one form or another. From my first nurgle army to a home brewed traitor chapter to an all Khorne themed army to my current Red Corsair's.

That's only because what is behind them is a far more terrible fate!

I picked Chaos, more specifically Emperor's Children, due to their disgusting excess detailed in Fulgrim. Beyond that, because they were the sort of the villains you just have to feel bad for. Their own arrogance drove them into a worship of Slaanesh, even though they were once devoted to the Emperor. Fulgrim noticed what had happened when it was to late, and he and his legion was damned for eternity.

Undivided CSM. I loved the old metal termi models avaialble and bought 3 with reaper autocannons when they were released. The guy at the local hobby store suggested i try a "different" colour scheme and i settled on Jade Green and never looked back.

Ork speed freeks: Gorkamorka baby. This game introduced me to the joys of converting and when codex armageddon came out i bought a load of second hand models to take part in some campaign games.

Grey Knights OR Speeze MAAReenze-Elitest troops with the right gear can do anything.

Terminators,Assault Cannons,ChainFists,Cyclone ML's,Nemisis Force Weapons,Thunder Hammers/SS,LightningClaws,PowerFists,Incinerators,Psycannons and anything that supports thier actions,Landraiders,Stormravens,Dreadnorts-the idea of getting the job done with the minimum of manpower and maximum force = Eficentcey = The Best.(IMO)

Strength,Honour,Precision,Integrity,Skill,Bravery,Focus = Thier Attributes,what are yours/your Army's?:so_happy:

Ive only started back at this hobby Because theyre finaly doing something for the Knights,(thats how long ive been a fan roughly end of second edition)

I chose tyranids because they were the best models at the time imo. So I researched the fluff, and liked them even more. hey were my first and remain my fave army.

Then came necrons. Much the same, liked the models, and when I read the fluff the pact was sealed...


And the rest I began one by one for some reason or another. I have a standing army from every race but DE and a small inquisition force that allies to my SM or IG to add a bit of change.

...being better. :p
I think you'll find that given a little consideration they're only better at being bad,back stabbers and the corrupted,motivated only by the fear of thier masters or personal gain are devided and weak:p

But well played,ive got somewhere near 8000pts WF Chaos (my favourite being Be'Lakor, the Undevided Daemon Prince,cant remember his name.Displayed on a sacrifical stone.The stones chained down as if it would otherwise float away,with the skulls and stakes taken from the Hell Cannon.His claws have raked the stone and left glowing gouges, he takes pride of place on the mantle peice)

My favourite tactic across all games, movies, stories etc. etc. is STEALTH.

It is why I originally chose Eldar (lightning fast attacks, Warp Spiders were some of the more awesome minis at the time)

And it is why I chose Tau (lightning fast attacks, lots of infiltration/ deep strike, XV15 Stealth Suits BLEW MY MIND when I first saw them.)

Now, if GW ever makes Stealth Suits non CRAPTASTIC in the next codex, I might actually play this game again :ireful2:

You don't need a comma in the title because this makes it 'Why did you choose you are army'. It should be 'Why did you choose your army'.

Back on topic, as my largest army is Tyranids I shall speak for them. Or rather I won't but a guy over at The Tyranid Hive will because I think that he put it very well and his explanation is basically mine but worded better.

'I like to think of myself as a generally nice guy in real life. I'm the guy people come to when they have problems. I'm the guy that stands up for the little guy. Yes I may have evil thoughts and be tempted to be an arsehole, but usually I'm the peace keeper.

Therefore my Tyranids are my release. They allow me to unleash my evil and sadistic side (the side that exists in all of us that laughs at racist and dead baby jokes). I don't want to play a goody goody in the games I play. I want to be Wesker, Carnage, the evil mastermind.

They just seem to have more fun.'

Copied word for word from Hive Fleet Nightstalker on The Tyranid Hive, although note that I did correct the spelling and grammatical errors, so all credit goes to him.

It was the AoBR set that got me into warhammer. And with two friends that were building space marine armies I decided to with orks since I would be able to go in with them and build a nice size base army for pretty darn cheap. I think I ended up paying ~$75 for 3 AoBR sets worth of orks.

So oddly enough, my love for the orks came after I started collecting them.

I choose Space Wolves because of two things, a) the codex is brilliant and b) Grey Hunters are one of (possibly the) best troop choices in the game.

Had I not got the codex I probably wouldn't have chosen them. I got the codex simply because it was written by Phill Kelly and his Army Book's and Codices rock.
