We southerners always prefer an underdog army ... dark eldar.

Just do anything but marines!

I wonder if people actually go through with the results of these polls.

Exceedingly unlikely OneWithNoName. People asks other peoples opinion to get approval or acceptance or affirmation for the decision they have already made. I suspect that questions like this fall into the same category as the following soliloquy’s all men have heard at one time or another or will hear.

Guy #1: “Do you think I should ask (fill in chic name) to marry me?”
Guy #2: “No, dude. Don’t do it. I am telling you not to do it.”

Guy 1 then dumps his friend and marries the girl. Later getting divorced and reunites with his friend with the “you were right, I should have listened to you” speech.

This guy will go make the army he really wants to regardless of poll results.

Well this time it is simply due to the fact that i love Dark Elder and have 3k already just need to re do a few units... then theres the fact that although they are marines the relictors have groovy fluff, then we hit guard that i have always truely loved and my preatorians need up dating..... so yes there is a chance i shall go with you judgements...

I should add that in my experience of Dark Elder since they were first released they are certainly not the underdogs...

Go the Guard mate.

Takes ages to paint - but is very rewarding at the end of it all. And Sentinels look very cool.

Since you already have the DE, go Guard for diversity.:D Also you can tweak the DE as you need a break or two while doing the Guard.:D

That was my feeling all the Dark Elder are missing is a new archon model which i have made just requires painting, and with tht e relictors all i have is a converted librarian model.......

Guard i love guard..... working out a paint scheme now for them.......
