I am planning on buying an army for my friend in either 40k or fantasy he doesnt care. He sold all of his magic cards so he could get into the hobby and is now looking to buy an army any ideas of what he chould get? He really said "just buy me a good army"

daemons or vampire counts...

spearhead via ebay if you can find it..then find out which models he likes and supplement the rest.

You might want to recommend to your friend to do a little research on the various factions before he invests that much money; or if he trusts you implicitly in finding a suitable army, does your friend have preferences in attacking or defending, models, races, magic, combat, out maneuvering, etcetera.

Indeed, at least let him browse through the warhammer site first.

Gnobblars! 600 bucks buys 20 boxes of gnobbos which is 480 gnobbos! The ultimate horde army!

I don't think anyone will be able to help you with the question- does he mean good to be "wins a lot" or "looks cool" or "matches my playstyle" or "is an underdog so I can test myself"?

Buying a warhammer army at random is going to mean an army gathering dust on the shelf. Tell him to check through the GW site, sit in on a game or two and read through armybooks and for the love of god start small- 1000 points max. Nothing worse than a bunch of unassembled models just sitting there.

If he is looking for a fun list that is relatively cheap by comparison to other armies, I recommend Night Goblins. I may not be a overpowered list, but you will have trouble finding a more fun... or do i mean funny... list to play.:D It is easy to learn how to use, and there is no feeling more gratifying then beating down some dark elves with some fanatics.:evilgrin:

in truth we need to find what he wants.

I bought two battallion boxs, and battle for skull pass and I have a good 3k point dwarf army.

most armies (not all) at 2000 points average about 400-500
