So because I'm totally indecisive, I decided that I'll ask the guys on the forums what they think...

I want to start another army to use in my local gaming group. Currently my primary army is Ogre Kingdoms which I find fun, but I'd like to mix it up a bit. Most my friends play "good" armies (HE, WE, Brets, Empire), and my primary opponent plays High Elves, if that helps anything.

The 3 choices I've narrowed it down to are:
Night Goblins - Fear Elves, Horde army, should be a blast.
Dark Elves - Evil opposites of my main opponent, should make for interesting games, highly strategic.
Vampire Counts - Magic heavy horde, competitive with magic heavy HE.

Which army do you think would be the most fun in my group?

Dark Elves! Dark Elves! Dark Elves!

I love playing with my DE army. Should be even more entertaining when the new book is released!

Dark Elves!

dark elves.

it just makes sense if your main opponent used high elves,plus its the perfect time to start a dark elf army with the new book iminent.

there is ofcourse,also the fact that dark elves are the most awesome army in warhammer:evilgrin:

Vampire Counts or Dark Elves, depending on your play style preference. Elves are fast strike, and VC specialize in attrition.

Dark elves will not do well against high elves, as ASF owns t3 low armore troops, but they could still be a fun army to play.

Just go for the gobbos.

As you say, they'll be a blast and the game is all about having fun : )

Something feels dirty about jumping on the DE bandwagon... then again, sometimes what seems wrong feels right. ;-)

I think I just had the girlfriend tie breaker... Although I guess 13:5 isn't much of a tie huh? She thinks I should get on the bandwagon.

The new Dark Elves are awesome, especially the Cold Ones and Corsairs, I could go on all day!

I was told by a staff member at my local GW that Dark Elves will also have ASF...

Dark elves.

Oh and the decision is doubled when you consider a shiny new book on its way!

I wouldn't worry too much about DE being disadvantaged against HE, or any other army, for that matter.

Have to go with the overwhelming majority here; the arch-enemy thing really just has too many possibilities.

Just remember it's your army and your money.

well thats a lie.:rolleyes:

for me id say night goblins, they would be a fair bit different from ogres and would have a bunch of shooting available if you want (some which ogres lack), but then dark elves also play very different as well. they could both be quite fun agaisnt high elves, however both have some major disadvantages agaisant high elves. ASF is goona murder both armies pretty bad but then gobs fear elves as well.

problem with me is i have both armies. well waiting for the corsairs and the cold ones then my dark elves will be done(although not the cold one riders they look pretty bad) and my brother has high elves:cries:

Warriors of Chaos is due out in November if I'm not mistaken. That is another candidate you might want to consider. I always try and pick a new army from the ones released within the last year or so if at all possible. But that's just me.

GOBBOS whats more awesome then an army you will almost never see anyone else playing. don't be a band wagon player go with an out there army that is fun and entertaining due to its randomness.

Id say gobboes are one of the less fun armies, as so many things are random, but they are VERY powerfull.
