Hey guys. Well after a good respounce with my last post I have started to think about a new army I could start in place of my lizards *salutes them. They served me well but I lost intrest too quick. So here are my ideas for a replacement

-Dark Elf Assassin Cult (Ie nice amount of those sneaky gits)
-Chaos Troll list
-Chaos Cavalry
-Lizard Cavalry (yeah its sort of their last chance saloon)
-Bret Royal Air Force (aka Pegasus army as much as I can)
-Anything you guys suggest.


So what cha all think? what should I do.

How about Empire? You can have a variety of list types. From cavalry or solid blocks or gunline. If you can afford to buy a large number of models, you can have it all.

Wouldn't the Cult of Assassins be the Temple of Khaine?

Just a suggestion, as you clearly had/have a soft spot for Lizardmen, but you are maybe looking for something else, and this kinda ties in a bit with 3 of your ideas (Chaos Cav, Lizard Cav and Dark Elf).

A Dark Elf Cavalry army.

Gives you a cavalry army.
Gives you lizards (cold one knights, cold one chariots).
Allows you to take some assassins and hide them in some core troops.

My other suggestion would be a Lustria Theme Warriors of Chaos army. A lot more $$ but may be worth it for you, some ideas:

Replace Marauder/Warrior shields with Saurus Shields.
Replace some Marauder/Warrior weapons with Saurus Weapons.
Replace Marauder/Knight mounts with Cold Ones or maybe just Lords/Heroes.
Replace Daemonic Steed with Carnosaur.
Replace Chariot with Stegadon.
War Shrine made from Stegadon.

Just some quick ideas.
Could still use trolls.

A chaos dwarf cavalry list? :)

You could use the WoC rules and make some unique conversions.

If you are worried about losing interest quickly, I think all of the above might be less than ideal choices, being each of them built around a rather narrow theme and playing style.

Not sure how your money situation is, but if you've got quite a bit spare, that Chaos Troll army sounds pretty cool. That said, I'm not too positive it would be effective on the battlefield.

Please, please, PLEASE don't do the Bret RAF. Horribly cheesy.

As for other ideas, it all depends what you like. Both Empire and O&G have huge scope for theming. I have a Vampire Counts Strigoi army with heavy use of ghouls, wolves, bats, varghulfs and wraiths that's really fun to play; you could try theming a VC army around any of the bloodlines from last ed's book.
