My friends say I am an impulsive buyer and i waste to much money on W40k, but i have a proposition to make.

At my store, there are zero, count em, zero people who play Tyranids and I've been thinking,...

With the new expansion coming out, should i honor a cool looking army and put my IG and Chaos on hold to start Nids, or should i finish the other two first.

the big question is: how much do you need to do on your IG and Chaos to get them finished, if it's 10-15% left to do on each, then go for it, if not then finish them off 1st and then save your cash for when you do decide to use the Nids

A lot. I have not even 1 troop choice and a command squad for IG and a terminator lord, a sorceror, a deamon prince, an obliterator, and 2 8 man squads of chaos marines.

Actually being totally honest, i would sell what you have for your IG and concentrate on the CSM

I'm not going to vote because I don't consider you a *****, but stick with what you have for now.

or buld them up very slowly (so 1 unit every other month, whilst you work on your CSM), and then combine them when you reach 3000 points in total for both armies

Chaos calls for you... and yeah I voted for the second. IG so you can do LatD when GW rereleases them (they will, they have to, it's the will of the gods!)

I voted All three.

As to how to do it on minimum wage, easy: Nidzilla! A bunch of Carnifexes to get a standard 40K army workable, then a combination of a Carni box (or two) and some creative Greenstuffing will get you a Hierodule, which on top of a regular 40K army gets you ready for Apoc quick and easy.

Stick with what you have, my friend.

When I first started this hobby, I had little bits and pieces of just about every single army because I would constantly get sidetracked. It's a big waste of time and money to do that.

Now, when I start an army, it's a commitment that I will see it through til the end. I've so far finished up a Dark Angels and Imperial Guard Army, and I am now getting started on Chaos. I will not buy another single model for another army until I finish this Chaos army. No matter what.

if you sell your IG, you are probably going to kick yourself in the bum. but i do agree stick with CSM

i do like what boogle said about working slowly, as the IG army is vostroyans, (See sig.)
thank you all for your input, ill keep this thread open in case you get any more ideas, so please post.

Don't see any reason why YOU should start Tyranids. just becouse nobody uses them forces you to buy a new army. Why don't somebody (I mean: not you) buy it if guys whare you play desperatly need to play 'nids?

Focus on Chaos - Get those scumbags up around 1500 points and then move on. Having a nice painted army is good stuff.

as both an Imperial Guard and a Chaos player, I'm going to say stick with those.

I'd say finish the two armies you already started. Nids are cool, but IG and chaos need some love too.
