View Full Version : What armies do you frequently field?

12-03-2009, 07:15
Just want to see what is popular and what isn't. Although I'm sure I have a good idea.

12-03-2009, 07:19
Lizardmen, Tomb Kings, Warriors of Chaos.

In that order.

12-03-2009, 07:33
Lizardmen, warriors of chaos, high elves. Daemons have retired but will have a VC army in a week or two.

Gork or Possibly Mork
12-03-2009, 07:35
Lizardmen, Orcs&Goblins, OgreKingdoms

Love them all, even if the last two are a bit underwhelming, hard to play at times. No particular order but I have played a lot more with Lizzies lately.

My preferred army is wood elves.

Then followed closely by VC, as I am currently starting them up.

And then my WoC – which has lost a lot of appeal since HoC, despite just getting better.

12-03-2009, 07:48
Lizardmen, Gobbo's, and Dwarves, I love Greenskins, you never know whats gonna happen!

Lord Dan

DE, Bretonnians, Empire.

12-03-2009, 07:53
Dwarves, Dwarf Slayers, Tomb Kings, Vampire counts in progress.

Dwarves, Dwarf Slayers.

Do you actually have two separate armies, or do you use models from one army to incorporate in the other?

12-03-2009, 08:11
I occasionally take a unit of slayers in my normal Dwarf army.
These I borrow from my Storm of Chaos dwarf slayers army.

I like the slayer army because it doesn't use as many models as the others. Quick to pack up, I use it for "away" games.

Why the hell isn't there a poll?

12-03-2009, 09:39
Empire, Empire, and Empire, in that order. :D

12-03-2009, 09:48
Orcs & Goblins, Bretonnians and High Elves.

12-03-2009, 09:56
WE & VC, used to have BoC but it sucks so I stopped.

12-03-2009, 11:27
Beasts of Chaos, Warriors of Chaos - both soon to be gazumped by a new Empire army currently in planning.

12-03-2009, 12:07
Daemons and very rarely, when im sure no-one is going to nick my stuff (Already lost half of them that way) Chaos Dwarfs.

12-03-2009, 12:37
VC, O&G, Dark Elves, Dwarves, High Elves, Deamons, Skaven... And sometimes all sorts of other stuff...

12-03-2009, 12:38
Lizards, Bretts and WoC in that order

Panzer MkIV
12-03-2009, 13:01
Dwarfs, Empire and Chaos (although a lot less since the new Chaos books came out)

In that order

12-03-2009, 13:15
Empire, Vampire Counts, Ogre Kingdoms, Dogs of War.

12-03-2009, 13:16
High Elves, Dark Elves, WoC, BoC, Dwarves, Lizardmen and VC. I also have Bretts and Empire to about 3000 points, but they are still in boxes!

12-03-2009, 13:45
Tomb Kings, WoC, and theoretically VC, although theyre waiting for 8th edition in the hope they become interesting to play with again...

12-03-2009, 14:45
Almost always Skaven, somethimes Bretts

12-03-2009, 14:49
Skaven, WoC, starting Dark Elves for an escalation league

The boyz
12-03-2009, 14:50
Dwarf's or Skaven mainly.

12-03-2009, 14:53
In order:

BoC, OnG, WoC.

My last 3 games have been using VC and occasionally I use my brother's old collection of dwarfs.

12-03-2009, 15:12

Orcs, Orks, DE and DE, SOB.

12-03-2009, 16:05
Empire, Lizardmen, dogs of war.

12-03-2009, 16:14
Lizards, Delfs and Daemons. in order. Mainly play Delfs cuz they're my favourite ever.

Looks like FotM but i've been playing the first two since fifth and the daemons were a 40k army but it turned out they were far better as a fantasy group

12-03-2009, 16:18
HE and bretonnias.

Leaning to starting a DE army as a change of good verse bad.
There should be a poll here, mulitpy choice of course.

12-03-2009, 16:37
High Elves and Bretonnia are my best armies (HE being my favorite, only by a little).

My DoC are still highly unasembled but playable (and have no real intention of finishing them soon) and I don't give a crap about my WoC.

12-03-2009, 16:54
GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENSKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINS!:) I just love those green guys. it is my first army and I still play with the 7 years later:). Soon I will also play with DOC.


12-03-2009, 17:17
O&G and DoC.

The DoC I'm a little apprehensive about bringing out, as they're just too hard to play against, especially in a group that's just getting into WHFB from 40k. However, the O&G are difficult to play a serious game with, so I'm stuck with both ends of the spectrum, without much in the way of middle ground.

12-03-2009, 18:49
I have, over the course of sixteen years now, fielded O&G armies ( my first ), Bretonnians ( my hardest, all that heraldry! ), Dwarves ( just because ya gotta luv the stunties ), DoW ( all the wasted money! ), skaven ( my largest - 264 models strong ), and am presently developing a WoC army. I have played in Gt's with O&G once, Brett's twice, and skaven twice. I am going to give the WoC a good showing in RTT & local gamers clubs + the Baltimore GT this '09 season:)

12-03-2009, 18:51
Lizards, occasionally Brets and thinking of dusting off my WoC (not been used since the toliet paper that WD printed for them)

12-03-2009, 18:56
O&G (mostly), VC (Sometimes), Empire (Rarely)...

12-03-2009, 19:16
Beasts of Chaos, Warriors of Chaos - both soon to be gazumped by a new Empire army currently in planning.

Would LOVE to field my BoC, but they are beyond horrible, nearing absolute junk as you can get.

I cant wait for a new book.

12-03-2009, 19:30
High Elves, Dark Elves, Empire, Tomb Kings.

12-03-2009, 20:59
Warriors & beasts of Chaos, Pure gobbo army to some extent.

Baron Von Rotten
13-03-2009, 03:40
VC, OnG, WoC, BoC, Ogres.

13-03-2009, 03:46
VC, DE. I play around with all the armies to get a feel (w/ proxy), but those are the two I actually play regularly.

13-03-2009, 03:48
Beasts of Chaos and Vampire Counts. I used to play Daemons (in the days of HoC) but sold them off due to them being too easy. (Yes I know Vamps are good too :P)

13-03-2009, 03:49
Dark Elves.

13-03-2009, 04:25
Dark Elves, Orcs & Goblins, Tomb Kings

Got all the armies to a respectable size now, but the dark elves have probably been my most successful.

13-03-2009, 06:08
Tomb Kings Chariot Regiment, High Elves, and Daemons

Jack Spratt
13-03-2009, 07:49
Empire, VC and High Elves

Ogrekingdoms and Dwarves are lurking nearby on a shelf at the moment.

In order:

> High Elves 5K+ (campaign army)

- Lizardmen 4.5K
- Ogres 1.5K
- Daemons 2K

[I have over 3K of Orcs & Goblins and about 2K of Bretonnians, but I dont think that I have gamed with them for nearly 4+ years]

Yes, I need therapy. :eyebrows:

Desert Rain
13-03-2009, 14:46
High Elves and Lizardmen

13-03-2009, 16:06
Orcs & Goblins, Orcs, Goblins... I once even did a Snotling army :p

But yeah, green mostly. I don't have anything else, and I don't really think I need anything else.

13-03-2009, 16:12
dwarfs... I dont have anotehr large enough army, building a small lizardman force but its nothing more than a skirmishing force at the moment though

13-03-2009, 16:12
Empire, Warriors of Chaos, Tomb Kings in that order.

13-03-2009, 16:16
I only have Lizardmen,
and 1/2 painted at that. :p

13-03-2009, 16:48
In order: Brets, Ogres, Tomb Kings, Lizardmen.

13-03-2009, 16:56
O&G's, DE's, TK's and WoC monster army (trolls)

13-03-2009, 16:57
Orcs & Goblins, Orcs, Goblins... I once even did a Snotling army :p

But yeah, green mostly. I don't have anything else, and I don't really think I need anything else.
I did that, useless wasn't it lol. the S7 pumpwagons were cool though (assuming you did it when legal). though i did have snotlings riding giant rats so mine wsn't totally legit.

13-03-2009, 17:18

Why the hell isn't there a poll?

haha i was going to do a poll but the max options is 10. . . .
I wasn't sure how i would get all 17 armies into that.

The SkaerKrow
13-03-2009, 19:28
Dark Elves, who I've been running since 6th Edition. I may start High Elves in the Fall, if I'm still playing at that point.
