View Full Version : The most Popular army on warseer?

09-12-2005, 19:18
So what is the most popular army on warseer, please only state yours, not what you think the majority of people think.

09-12-2005, 19:20
How is this meant to work?

09-12-2005, 19:22
My choice of armies are:

Tyranids...it was invenitable after playing Space hulk when I was like 10 or something.

13th Company Space Wolves...Coz I like the Space Wolves, but as a starting army, I wanted a small you fairly robust force adn since 13th Co. have a points resrtiction on them and they pack a mean punch in small numbers, I found them perfect for me. Plus I like the Wulfen.

09-12-2005, 19:24
A poll might help.

EDIT: Oh, I see, nevermind.

Is it my favourite army or my favourite army that I'm currently collecting or have in my possession?

My favourite army is probably Sisters of Battle, but I've never collected them.

EDIT: I've chosen not to vote, as I don't consider "Inquisitorial order" to do the nuns justice.

My favourite army that I HAVE collected, is, hmmm, either Necrons or "Chaos" (Can't decide which specific Chaos army though).

09-12-2005, 19:24
How is this meant to work?

I spent a while posting the poll...

Off topic - you know you want to change to red PD!

EDIT: why does it post the thread while you are still writing the poll? its a bit silly.

09-12-2005, 20:24
i started with dark angels, i moved on to my own chapter the Hell fists, and now im onto an angles of vengance 1st company terminator army now so i can safely say i like my mariens more than any of the other army i own

09-12-2005, 20:28
there is a sizable chaos population on warseer, which im a member

so i voted chaos: in particular thousand sons

09-12-2005, 20:35
Greenskins all the way for me! I now play Nurgle as well, but my heart belongs to Gork. As for a specific klan, I would go DeathSkullz, but not for the rules, only the fluff (though multiple looted vehicles are great, having to use 2 squads of lootas hurts!)

09-12-2005, 20:41
Ultramarines for me. Gotta love'em...

09-12-2005, 20:47
currently Emperors Children although i'm not much of a fan of their character, background so i'll probably choose another cult legion, probably nurgle. But yeah chaos are l33t.

09-12-2005, 20:55
Kroot Mercs.

Love The Birdie Boys.

09-12-2005, 20:57
Blood Axe Ork footsloggas... da Moredakka 5th!

god octo
09-12-2005, 21:08
I put a vote in for the sisters of battle and witch hunters. You just gotta love faith and flamers:D

09-12-2005, 21:09
Chaos since I play them, and in all the BL books they are pretty cool.

09-12-2005, 21:10
In order:

Blood Axe Orks <-- voted:D
Sisters of Battle (not WH)
Harlequins (DEWC)
Mech/Drop IG

09-12-2005, 21:13

Simply because i love the models and i think they are a fresh addition to the grim future. :D

09-12-2005, 21:15
Space Wolves, all the way.

09-12-2005, 21:26
Blood Axe Orks- Low cunning, Brutality, and mimickry. I miss the days when the Blood Axes were the greatest of Ork clans that ruled over the others. Then the others got sick of it and overthrew them in the Big Party civil war. It is this emnity from the big party that carries over and makes Blood Axes untrustworthy, that and their strange ideas on tactics. What's not to love.

List wise- the two Kommando Squads as mandatory kinda sucks.

09-12-2005, 21:30
i'm currently using a Crimson Fist force. for sheer versatility you just can't beat marines.
i've done a tank company, a fast assault force, and currently a scout army.

09-12-2005, 21:36
Voted IG i did but I'm pure traitor all the way you can keep your corpse god!. I use a straight ig list with doctrines gives me a great well equiped feeling for my traitor guard

09-12-2005, 22:29
Been playing Emperor's Children for 15-16 years now and I am currently making the 4th army of them. So I guess I can safely say that Chaos is my favourite army.

:) Anax

09-12-2005, 22:31
Favourite army would have to be my ordo xenos force (daemonhunter inquisitors, stormies and dc assassins alongside a large deathwatch squad). Not very powerful in the grand scheme of things but very characterful...

09-12-2005, 22:33

Black Legion, for tactical flexibility, fun, and nasty surprises you can not beat the Legion.

But I have kind of a soft spot for Nurgle. I don't know why.

So what is the most popular army on warseer, please only state yours, not what you think the majority of people think.

I can't exactly put down my army, when you dont give me the option to select multiple armies... I'd suggest next time making it check boxes instead of radio buttons :p

09-12-2005, 22:44
well ig light inf no question.
i allways root for the underdog in thise case the normal man taking all what a crasy galaxy can hurl at him.

and ask for seconds:p

09-12-2005, 22:58

.. he asked for your favourite army... army, not armies (singular).

09-12-2005, 23:16
I voted Nids....they're my favorite at this point in time. They're an awesome army, very flexible, beautiful models(definately one of those "in the eye of the beholder" situations), and characterful background. It doesn't get any better than being a Nid.

09-12-2005, 23:17
I'm tau but...


09-12-2005, 23:23
Listing Eldar and Dark Eldar together is like listing Space Marines and Chaos together... except that Eldar and Dark Eldar have even *less* in common.

09-12-2005, 23:25
Gee wizz people, there *are* only ten options in a poll.:rolleyes: That's why you can post.:eyebrows:

09-12-2005, 23:28
well is good ol' loyalist marines for me and the mighty Ultramarines 5th company. with captain caito Galenus, master of the marcher leading them, there are a formidable fighting force!

thank you, ui'm here till thursday. try the veal.

The Orange
09-12-2005, 23:31
I lean towards the Tau. The whole look of the army is just fantastic IMO. I'm also partial to eldar, but I guess we only get to vote for one.

09-12-2005, 23:34
Well to tell you the truth, I like Chaos and Space Marines, just because of the Horus Heresy. I love the background of both armies, and have extensive lists for both. I play Ultramarines and Undivided/Khorne army lists...

09-12-2005, 23:36

09-12-2005, 23:53
.. he asked for your favourite army... army, not armies (singular).

but but but, all of my armies are my favourites
I can't possibly chose between any of them.... I picked them for a reason.


10-12-2005, 00:04
sadly a poll like this will always be won by spacemarines and their evil counterparts

this poll was a tougth one for me, as I have a army with nearly every race... but my current favorate is Imperial Guard, so they get my vote

Cheitan Shadowless
10-12-2005, 01:00
Mrahr - Tyranids all the way. Been lovingly tending to the spawning vats for seven years now, and not planning on stopping... :evilgrin:

10-12-2005, 01:38
IG for me, with the exception of my 1st army (BA, as the 2nd Ed IG codex hadn't been released back then), i have had a love for the masses fo infantry armed with nothing but flashlights and harsh language

10-12-2005, 02:21
I always have and always will love the Salamanders :D

10-12-2005, 03:28
I put a white dwarf army, but because I always like the smaller, more unique armies.

DE- my first army so I still love 'em
SM- nope
IG - what's not to like about Johnny Guardsman?
Nids - scary to face
orks - like the conversions
chaos - played chaos the most so I was going to choose them
eldar - meh

basically I started necrons when they were a 3rd edition WD list. I was going to start a kroot army a while back before taking a break but am working on something just as rare (see sig)

I like the idea of putting something that looks completely different on the field- something where my opponent has to stop and think, and re-address a strategy. Something where the other player says, "crap, I've never played them before"

10-12-2005, 04:16
would like to see a post with armies broken down into chapters, legions, etc. a.k.a i vote thousand sons, and it would be interesting to see the god armies compared to undivided

Smoking Frog
10-12-2005, 05:46
I quite like the Imperial Guard, I've been bouncing aroung some ideas of a regiment based on the Rhodesian Scouts from back in the day...

10-12-2005, 06:50
Sisters of Battle/Witch Hunters

Mainly because they're more challenging to use then my Eldar and Marines.
The SoB/WH are also the smallest force in my collection at about 3k points.

10-12-2005, 07:26
I started with vanilla Marines (750pts), then tried Witch Hunters without Sisters (750pts) (Storm Troopers look cool but play poorly cf. SoB). Neither really grabbed my fancy, and so I became an Orky Warboss, and have never looked back. 'Ere we go, 'ere we go, 'ere we go!

The Judge
10-12-2005, 09:47
Eldar all the way...but I see we're a dying minority.

10-12-2005, 11:03
Harlequins and Ultramarines for me

10-12-2005, 11:05
vanilla space marines. 10 years ago my first true army was vanilla sm, and now on the verge of my 22nd birthday i still have a nice sm force. everything about them is elite, their armour, their skills, their options and armoury. plus they are a nice easy army to use, very forgiving.

generic sm for teh win :D

10-12-2005, 11:17
It's Imperial Guard for me. I think it's because it's the one army in 40K that actually looks and feels like an actual army. It's not made up of freaks or aliens in super flashy armour, it's got little fancy stuff, it's all pretty down to earth. The IG is the thousands of movie extras where the other armies are the CG scenes.

Plus there's a lot of variety in the IG. My favourite remain the Tallarn I started out with, but I like all the metal regiments. Hell, I like the Perry's rank and file models in general, be they 40K, Fantasy, LotR, historical or whatever.

Colonel Krieg
10-12-2005, 11:24

Obviously death korps of Krieg

10-12-2005, 11:37
dark angels for me
i love my death wing army
i think i am the only one though

10-12-2005, 12:53
Space Marines, a DIY chapter I'm mucking around with...

10-12-2005, 12:53
IG: Praetorians

10-12-2005, 13:14
Imperial Guard, the rules are easy to use the flexibility of the doctrine system is the true triumph of 40K, you can pick the army YOU want.

The amount of Regiments available is quite astounding, Cadian, Catachan, Mordian, Tallarn, Armageddon, Valhallan, Praetorians, Tanith (although there's not enough to produce any real army), Ellysians (Not technically GW but still worth including), Classic Metal Cadians (different enough to qualify as another regiment) etc etc.

I have a Cadian all plastic Army, Steel legion Mechanised Army and a small amount of Ellysians. I have plans for at least 2 more Guard Armies when I have the time and space.

10-12-2005, 13:50
Tough one.. toss up between IG and Tyranids for me.

In the end, I voted for Tyranids... they were my first 40K love, and the new codex is pretty much amazing. Also, they are by far the largest army I have, and with almost 7000 pts classify as a real swarm. Guard (Cadian plastics, own home world) are a close second tough... Guess which movie I like? :D

old guard
10-12-2005, 13:53
IG cadians, dark angels, IG Tanith/Pardus

voting IG all the way

10-12-2005, 13:54
I like the kroot army

10-12-2005, 17:33
Do Orks...in particular the Bad Moonz. Whats not to love about a bunch of hefty orks with lots of guns? :D

10-12-2005, 18:11
Alot of Guard Fans, I wonder why no one like Necrons.

Great Harlequin
10-12-2005, 18:21
I voted for Eldar and I also wanted to vote for Necrons but I forgot. :(

The Eldar range is amongst the most spectacular and beautiful Games Workshop have ever released. They're also really exciting to play with as they aren't the most forgiving of armies, one mistake can cost you more than other armies.

The Necrons, why do I love them? Well, there's just something neat about seeing legion upon legion of robotic killing machines advancing across the fields of battle with weapons of destructive green fire! Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. ;)

All the bestest,

10-12-2005, 18:41
Wow, what an ambivalent post, Great Harlekin. While I couldn't agree more on your Eldar statements, I couldn't agree less on the Necrons.;)

Well, it's a matter of taste. My most beloved army is IG but I also really like SoB. By the way, I guessed right that IG is the most popular army on warseer. Do I get a prize? The 2nd place of Tau is just because when the new Codex comes out, everyone will be playing them. So it seems like the 2nd place is reserved for "shiney new stuff".:)

10-12-2005, 18:51
I chose Space Wolves, as they were the first army that I began to collect and their background, just so different to the other chapters, keeps me hooked on them even now

10-12-2005, 20:49
deathwing, and when i want to play a horde army, dark angels.

10-12-2005, 20:52
I spent entire third edition playing Ultramarines. Then I collected an Ork army which I at the moment consider my favourite. So greenskins it is.

10-12-2005, 21:00
That would be Imperial guard hands down. not contest what so ever. I mean, big tanks, cool plastics, and forgeworld tanks that rule!

what more could a tank lover ask for!

10-12-2005, 21:12
I chose chaos, more specifically iron warriors because I collect them and theyre mine and I like them:p

10-12-2005, 21:58
Ichose any space marine chapter except space wolfs and ultramarines.

C. Langana
10-12-2005, 22:04
Huzzah the IG is winning!
mmm tanks.

10-12-2005, 22:13
Night Lords and latd featuring night lord's i gotta go with my bat boys, as my favoite army. although deathworld catachan's were fun as hell too.

10-12-2005, 22:23
imperial guard

infantry bassed at the moment but those tanks ae calling

10-12-2005, 23:04
My army is space marines, i didn't start with them but i really liked there models (they were my 4th army). I am in the process of building my chapter, the Emperors eagles

Captain Cortez
11-12-2005, 01:19
Look at all the goody-two-shoe Tau players:rolleyes: .

I first started with a Guard army, then Marines, then Orks finally Eldar:cool: . My favorite is my Iyanden Ghoste Warriors army, they rule!

11-12-2005, 01:32
Imperial Guard.
As for which unit,...
I have a few Cadians, Valhallans, and Steel Legion Troops, but I prefer designing my own IG regiments. Converting the troops and vehicels, designing homewrolds, writing history for the units,...
Its stuff like that which I think makes the Imperial Guard great.

11-12-2005, 06:12
I like the Imperial Guard, probaly because of movies such as Star Ship Troopers, and Aliens. They also have some of the best stories from the black libary.

11-12-2005, 11:05
I think all the chapters are popular for a while. Especally when the new codex comes out. Like The DIY and codex Chapters where really popular for a while then the BT codex so that what everyone talks about.

Robot 2000
11-12-2005, 12:29
Imperial Guard, because there's potential for so much variety and influence from so much popular culture stuff from films and games. I personally like the near-future Aliens/Starship Troopers feel of the Cadians :)

Ronin Zero
11-12-2005, 12:39
Blood Angels.

But only as they appear in 2nd Edition... not the frothing, virtually-no-tactics berserker types they're painted as today.

I'm seriously thinking about using the Codex Marines list with a few traits to play my Blood Angels instead of the official list, I'm that disappointed in their 3rd-4th edition portrayal.

Guard. While I play Tau and Marines, I've got a soft spot for the wee footsloggers, their nineteen megathule pea-shooters, and their tanks.

11-12-2005, 15:45
I like orks myself..... they're just nutz.

The Dragon Reborn
11-12-2005, 16:17

11-12-2005, 16:26
Look at all the goody-two-shoe Tau players:rolleyes: .
Tau aren't necessarily goody-two-shoe they are just communistic and so have a lot less in-fighting than other races.

11-12-2005, 22:51
Speed Freek Orks. They're fast and choppy!

11-12-2005, 23:08
wow, dead last :)

11-12-2005, 23:17
Sisters of Battle for me, and the whole Ordo Hereticus really. Just gotta love an army of girls with guns.

I also really like Blood Angels and Eldar for their fluff.

Lord of ???
12-12-2005, 00:37
I have a huge Chaos Force and i'm never going to get rid of them but my favourite army is Orky Speed Freekz.

They are just so much fun and allow so much room for conversions

12-12-2005, 00:48
Dark Angels

12-12-2005, 01:06
Unsurprisingly Craftworld Eldar.:p

12-12-2005, 01:25
Same here!

12-12-2005, 03:03
I'm surprised to see how many Guard players voted.

I can field 2 infantry companies, 1 armored company, 1 artillery company, and a mech infantry company. It adds up to about 12,000 points.

I use RT era Guard, Mordians, and Valhallens, along with all support troops.

12-12-2005, 09:36
I'm another guard player.

Got enough Infantry for a 1500pt cadian infantry company (with a squad of praetorians) and enough tanks built for a 1500pt Armoured Company. Got another couple of tanks waiting to be built, and some sentinals that can go in either army.
As much as I like the metal models constraints on cash have meant that I started with plastic catachans (which I could probably get another 500pts out of but most of them are wrecked) then I replaced them with plastic Cadians. One day I'll get round to buying up metal models, probably Steel Legion, though I would love a Praetorian army. :)

Dark Eldar...

The first 40K army I finished painting...and ddnt sell...(necrons and Tau)

althoguh this may change to normal ELdar when they get redone...or the new tau....or Orks if they're redone well...or.....

12-12-2005, 11:45
Orks every time.

12-12-2005, 12:28
Space Marines: Ultramarines, I just like the roman influence of them, and the whole stoicness of there homeworld

12-12-2005, 12:41
althoguh this may change to normal ELdar when they get redone...or the new tau....or Orks if they're redone well...or.....
Ahh. A man after my own heart!

Never collected a 40k army, but if i did, i'd have to go Guard or Eldar.

Commissar Vaughn
12-12-2005, 12:53
with about 6k of them ready to go its gotta be guard. plus im convering ogryns and scratch building a new MBT called the tigerwolf (one finished 9 to go!, pics soon i hope) so that will be going up!

12-12-2005, 15:56
Just my only little traitor chapter of space marines (still use normal marine rules.....mostly). Named the Silver Talons, or to those who's seen some of my conversions, the Dino-Marines.

Though I would have liked to be able to vote more then once so I could represent my budding Tyranid army.

12-12-2005, 16:01
I voted Tau.

Rider of the lightning
12-12-2005, 16:21
Of course the best army: TAU :D

The rest doesn't matter. (Except Space Wolves....);)

12-12-2005, 16:30
Orks. Umm, since the poll said to specify, I'll say the green ones with pointed ears and big teeth. :p

ankara halla
12-12-2005, 16:37
Been playing Blood Angels since RT and have yet to get another army (though I've ended up with a rather good number of nids from space hulk and the ASC).
I'm actually afraid to, the second army (or actually my very first) I've got got axed into oblivion and with my luck it'll happend again.

12-12-2005, 16:40
Eldar, my own Craftworld of Iarstillian.

12-12-2005, 16:44
you can't go wrong with Emperor's Children... Daemonette-tastic!

12-12-2005, 16:49
Orks. Umm, since the poll said to specify, I'll say the green ones with pointed ears and big teeth. :p

dark eldar with the flu? :o

12-12-2005, 17:04
dark eldar with the flu? :o

No that would be skinny green guys with pointy ears. ;) I don't think any Eldar have big teeth.

12-12-2005, 17:25

Orks on foot :)

12-12-2005, 18:08
In the past I've collected Eldar (twice), Tau, Chaos Space Marines (thrice - Slaaneshi, Nurgley, and Iron Warriors), and Daemonhunters.

But the army I always seem to keep coming back to, either to expand or (as I'm doing at the moment) 're-vamp', are my diy chapter Fire Storm Space Marines. Perhaps it's cause they're so easy to paint? Or perhaps I just like the fact that their story is of my own devising? But I just like doing them, and will carry on doing so.

12-12-2005, 19:59
No that would be skinny green guys with pointy ears. ;) I don't think any Eldar have big teeth.
I'm sure many of them sharpen them, at least if I were a DE I would.. just for the evil-cool factor

12-12-2005, 20:05
i have a hybrid army of witch hunters / IG / Sm

i love em lol !

12-12-2005, 20:11
I'm sure many of them sharpen them, at least if I were a DE I would.. just for the evil-cool factor

No doubt, but I said big, not sharp. :p Some Ork tusks are bigger than an Eldar's entire head. The fact that they are sharp is an added bonus.

12-12-2005, 20:17
IG the best!!!

12-12-2005, 22:54
I voted Tau, I feild an army at 1500 points containing the following elements:

Kroot, + hounds
IG (I forget there Tau name).

I do not normaly feild Aun, Krotox, pathfinders, nor do I normaly deploy devilfish. When playing against necron I do not use hammerheads.


13-12-2005, 04:27

I was never one to read very well :)

13-12-2005, 16:56
Eldar, for the models and the potential to be something fabulous, if nothing else.
