View Full Version : What army do you play?

I looked all through the forums, did searches and all. I can not seem to find a thread that has a poll asking people what army they mainly play.

This boggles my mind, i thought for sure it would already exist just to get a general ballpark of what's being played. Especially with this being a decent sized community it would be a good sampling.

So I decided to put one up myself. If this poll already exists I apologize and please lock this thread out.



*********
I have just updated the poll. unfortunately polls allow a maximum of 10 options so the following were the 5 I decided to leave out because from what I gather they are the four least played and least supported armies plus Deamons which I left out because everyone seems to have a deamon army.
bretonnia
tomb kings
ogre kingdoms
beastmen
deamons

-Bretonnians
-Wood elves

-Empire
-Ogre kingdoms

Lizardmen.

I have considered many other Armies but usually end up spending money on a different system altogether to really try out something new to me.

01-03-2010, 21:43
Dark elves for about 14 years now, mostly older figs that Ive rebases. Way to many crossbows and warriors so I hope they don't redo the kit any time soon.

My armies in order of how long I have owned them.

1. Bretonnia
2. Dark Elves
3. High Elves
4. Wood Elves

I would consider Bretonnia as my 'main' army still

bigcheese76
01-03-2010, 21:52
I play Dwarves as my main army, but after being bored of barely moving I started Bretonnia.

what are chaos dwarves....

...just kidding. I played squats back in epic so I understand the pain of playing forgotten lore from several generations ago. Games workshop may have been able to trick people into believe they never existed as more than ravings of lunatics (like the skaven tried to do with themselves) if it wasn't for the crew of the hellcannon reminding you that you didn't just dream them.

01-03-2010, 21:53
O&Gs
HEs
Daemons (joint army with 40K and I use them in 40K far more)

Starting WoC this year... then I fancy getting Dwarfs.

Lordsaradain
01-03-2010, 21:54
WoC is my favorite army(coolest models, best painted).
I also play O&G, Empire, OK, VC, DE, DoC...

Lizzies first, woddies after. Planning on dwarves, empire or chaos one of 'em

My main and only army are dwarfs. I'd think about maybe doing another army but my dwarfs still need painting. Ow the fun :P

The Red Scourge
01-03-2010, 22:06
Woodies - best designed army out there

VC - though it took me a while, to find a way that was actually fun to play them.

WoC - not really anymore, but the old HoC got me in the game, but the new book really isn't all that interesting :p

Just started fantasy about 6 weeks ago and play Bretonnia, but I'm wondering if I will continue, currently painting some lizardman models to a very high standard, so might start them.

Devil Tree
01-03-2010, 22:07
Mostly Beasts and Empire. I also have a small O & G army.

skullkandy
01-03-2010, 22:10
I also feel compelled to admit that there is an alterior motivation for this thread beyond pure curiosity.

I'm starting warhammer myself for the first time. Played other GW for years and painted some warhammer but never played so I'm getting a general feel for what's out there as part of my decision for what to play.

I was originally going to go beastmen because I absolutely love the models (well other than the new mino sculpt) but the more I read the book and look at it against the other books out there the more I notice that they got the complete shaft by being balanced. No cool combos, completely mediocre magic items that cost more than much better items of other races, units that are worse in every way than things costing less in other races. It seems GW decided to go for a very mediocre balanced army....problem is they don't update existing armybooks so that approach isn't going to work and just shafts them.
I don't need to only play a winning army because I don't mind losing and usually wargame for fun while never entering tournies. But in general the beastmen seem like almost every unit they forgot to add that one little extra stat point or ability yet charged the points for it anyway.

anyway, enough of my moaning and complaining. Just figured I'd share part of the reason behind this poll.

Pacorko
01-03-2010, 22:14
I voted Dark Elves, even when I own and play other armies as well. In order of up-to-date preference ("oh-so-in" and "just cool" factors), I play:

1.- Dark Elves
2.- Ogre Kingdoms/Night Goblins
3.- Dwarves/Skaven
4.- Beasts of Chaos/Wood Elves
5.- Warriors of Chaos
6.- Vampire Counts/Middenheim

Then again, I'm not a tourney-oriented player so I'm free of the typical "this army is underpowered" debate in all of my games, and I have equal fun with all of them. My preference just has to do with how much I like the look of my army, and how confident and comfy I feel playing with them.

Razakel
01-03-2010, 22:17
In order;


Dwarves - love the army
Orcs & Goblins - I liked them, but they were too random for me, Frenzy, Animosity and Fanatics lost more games than being outplayed did

Empire

When I started Warhammer I thought O&G would be the only army i'd ever want. Then I got around to play with them and realized they aren't my army gameplay wise. Empire on the other hand grew slowly on me and after I realized O&G (at least in its current iteration) weren't for me I started collecting them.

Now I am playing the game like I wanted to play it. I have an actual army on the field and not 20 models. I can do something in every phase of the game, unlike a lot of my opponents. The blue and yellow from Nordland make my army stand out from all the dark browns, greens and bones of my opponents.

And in general what is cooler than mere men beating the crap out of all those scary monsters and beasts out there! My cannon crew are the favorites in my army, they have wounded a black orc warboss in close combat and won the combat, sniped a goblins shaman with a cannonball from its unit, defeated felbats in close combat and in general have been kicking ass.

Besides the idea of some day starting a dwarf army I don't know what army I would want play with besides my empire.

High Elves

Grimm Toof
01-03-2010, 22:30
Orcs first and foremost, indeed my first mini ever was a warboss on a wyvern way back when back in 5th ed.

Bretonnians just because no one here has Historicals and I have a Late and Middle Medieval English army. Archers are archers :p

Commodus Leitdorf
01-03-2010, 22:38
1) Empire
2) Chaos Dwarfs

Desalbert
01-03-2010, 22:41
Ogre Kingdoms are my main army

However, I have massive Orcs and Goblin army that I just don't enjoy playing with, simply because its too big and unwieldy. I primarily play 40k, so I wanted an army that was still funny and entertaining, but more elite. Ogres were like the O&G army I always wanted, in a way.

Memnon
01-03-2010, 22:44
Warriors of chaos, best army by far both model and fluff wise for me!

Spiney Norman
01-03-2010, 22:57
My guess is the poll only permits 10 response options, pity really

1. Tomb Kings (currently semi-retired pending a face-lift for rules and models)
2. Lizardmen (currently the most playable army I own, current rumours indicate a heavy nerfing once 8th edition comes out so I'm getting all the game time I can out of them)
3. Night Goblins (look like they might do extremely well out of 8th Ed, so I'm painting them up in anticipation)

I also have wood elves and Empire, but they're languishing in cases somewhere waiting to be let out at some future date.

BigbyWolf
01-03-2010, 23:00
In order of most games played, ever (with races I currently own...)

ORCS (and goblins)
WoC
Beasts of Chaos (none in the current incarnation)
VC

Baron Von Rotten
01-03-2010, 23:09
O+G - my first army
VC - my most beloved army
WOC - Best models
BOC - Due to 6th Ed Hordes of Chaos, not impressed with the newest version, we'll see.
OK - Cheapest army in terms of $

Luthor
01-03-2010, 23:14
No Tomb Kings?

I usually play Vampire Counts but have side-lined them and started up a Tomb King army.

Nuada
01-03-2010, 23:14
In order of my most successful armies;

1) O&G
2) Wood Elves (tree army)
3) High Elves

Skaven, then VC. At first I just played Skaven (wayyyyyyy back in 5th), then I picked up a VC army sometime in early 6th, switched to WoW for a while, switched to Warmachine for a while, played some 40k, came back to VC, and now I play Skaven again. Full circle.

I just got back into the game and I now am a Dwarf player. I have played many other armies in the past though.

Maoriboy007
02-03-2010, 02:29
Started undead (and therefore VC) towards the end of 4th edition.
Switched to Tomb kings and dabbled with Empire and Lizardmen in 6th Edition, changed back to VC pretty much to try and cope with Chaos and Gunline armies at the end of 6th and stayed with VC since.

Anvilbrow
02-03-2010, 02:34
I voted for every one, but you're missing all the rest of my armies.:mad:

I'm one of those old-timers who plays every army.

I must have confused Warhammer with Pokemon at some point... I caught 'em all.

Troah
02-03-2010, 02:39
1) Bretonnia.
2) Lizardmen
3) Tomb Kings

And not everyone has a deamon army...I haven't seen a deamon army in the lat 3 years because everyone in my gaming group doesn't really care for their fluff and so we have no deamon player, just a warriors of chaos one...and she barely plays.

Panzer MkIV
02-03-2010, 02:52
I play

Dwarfs(main army)
Empire
O&G
WoC

Also interesting to note that when I pool units together from the above I can even field a fairly large Dogs of War army:)

sorry about the lack of tomb kings guys. polls only allow 10 options so I had to leave out a few.

I know what you see in them though. the first warhammer model I ever painted was a soul casket just to sit on my computer desk and look cool.

Empire only.

Djekar
02-03-2010, 06:23
O&G as my main army, followed closely by WoC. I also just branched out into Dwarves and Chaos Dwarves (complete with fun fluff even), but they are still WiP armies really.

02-03-2010, 06:47
Go orcs! Were finally winning at something.

02-03-2010, 07:23
1) High Elves- been playing them for over 14 years.
2) Orcs and Goblins - my current affliction
3) Bretonnia - Had an army, sold it and am in the process of rebuilding. Still the most beautiful army in Fantasy.
4) Empire
5) Tomb Kings

Desert Rain
02-03-2010, 07:42
I'm playing High Elves, more or less exclusively. I started out with Lizardmen but I haven't been using them more than a few times since I started with HE in 2005

Jind_Singh
02-03-2010, 07:43
1) Orcs & Goblins (4000pts of each)
2) Ogre Kingdoms (3000pts built, 3000pts to be done!)
3) Empire (1500pts, with about 1500pts unbuilt)
4) Deamons of Chaos (11,000pts)
5) Skaven (250pts)
6) Beastman (Just have an army book, but would like to start them soon!)

Of them all the Skaven is the cheesy list - 20 Slaves, 9 Giant Rats, Doomwheel, Hero - NO other army can pack that much in to 250pts, espec as its a legal army with 2 core, 1 hero!

Olyphant
02-03-2010, 07:57
Orc'n'Goblins
Warriors of Chaos
Skaven (I recently got bored of animosity after travel 4 inches the entire game with my main unit so instead of doing nothing and getting killed I'm gonna kill myself, I'm happy as long as I'm rolling the kill dice :p)

MasterSparks
02-03-2010, 09:22

Dogs of War

Tomb Kings

(WFB isn't my main system, so only two armies here, but the DoW are my largest army overall).

Doomseer
02-03-2010, 10:24
I play Dark Elves and Lizardmen.

Dark Elves were the first fantasy army I ever had way back in the early to mid 90's so I consider them my main army. My cheesemonger status has now been restored, after a long spell of mediocrity, since the release of the current army book!

I recently sold a huge collection of Warriors/Beasts/Daemons of Chaos following the Hordes split. I tried to make each faction work but it never felt the same:(

willowdark
02-03-2010, 13:32
Dark Elves.

Sexy, bare-chested, Hate filled, core heavy (with spears), 10 powerdice, assassinatin', stupid cavalry, best monster in the game, Dark Elves. :)

mrtn
02-03-2010, 15:25
Beastmen, Warriors of Chaos, Skaven.

Exclusively Dogs of War - I can only justify buying one army, so I might as well make it a varied one.;)

02-03-2010, 16:19
Deamons (and no I do not cheese out the army, in fact I'm about 50/50 with them as far as wins and losses go)

Dark Elves and Vamps are my other two armies, have played these two for many, many years and they happen to be the armies everyone complains about being to powerful.

Way back in the day I used to play Chaos Dwarfs (heres hopeing for a new book)

1. Dark Elf - Been playing them since 1988
2. Undead - Been playing them since 1988 as well. I play them as a Tomb Kings army.
3. And a bunch of other assorted stuff (gobos, dwarfs, lizardmen, bretonians)

Galatan
02-03-2010, 18:02
Vampire Counts and Stirland Empire. I like making a background link/synergy between my army's :) .

duffybear1988
02-03-2010, 18:08
where is the daemons option? surely they are the most balanced and fun army and as such most people would play them? or is there another reason that they turn up in droves at clubs and tournies worldwide?

Commissar Goddard
02-03-2010, 18:15
I play dark elves and Ostland Empire. seems to be Dark elves more than the empire though.

Ogres + Dark Elves

And in my experience not many people have Daemon armies.

I'm particularly impressed by the showing for WoC and O&G.

High Elves (on and off since 1993)
Warriors of Chaos (Since 2008)

Have my first Dark Elf game this coming weekend!

Olja
02-03-2010, 23:44
I play Dwarves most of the time. I'm going to try Skaven and possibly High Elves. If the new Chaos Dwarves look half as cool as the hellcannon crew I'll get into them. I really didn't like those stupid hats they had.

03-03-2010, 11:37
I protest, id like ot have voted for Goblins only. :)

reynor
03-03-2010, 17:12
I mainly play Ogre Kingdoms but since they are not on the list I voted Orcs & Goblins.

Shame there wasn't room for more armies in the poll.

sigur
03-03-2010, 17:19
Dark Elves.

I'm actually pleasantly surprised that the poll seems to be quite even and that there's so many O&G players despite the supposedly "weakness" of the army book. Applause to you, green guys. :)

VoodooJanus
03-03-2010, 17:47
What!!!? You forgot about Gnoblars??? I guess they're just worse versions of Goblins...

Anyways to be more realistic
Wood Elves. (my first and favorite army. All Elves usually, but I do have some trees that I can use if I feel so inclined)
OK (but really a gnoblar white dwarf list.)
Warriors of Chaos (when I go on a losing streak that lasts long enough (30-35 games in a row) to make me start finding the game less fun. Like when the Daemon guy with half a billion flamers come by.)
VC. Stopped playing them after the new book was released- they just got downright boring (for me anyway- I don't knock those who play them now)

GuyLeCheval
03-03-2010, 17:51
I play Skaven!

And a little bit Brettonnia...


where is the daemons option? surely they are the most balanced and fun army and as such most people would play them? or is there another reason that they turn up in droves at clubs and tournies worldwide?

I hope this is sarcasm...

The SkaerKrow
03-03-2010, 17:57
Voted Dark Elves, but they're going to be joined by the end of this year by either my Beastmen or my Lizardmen.

03-03-2010, 17:59
The questions more like what army I don't collect.

Malice&Mizery

I have had a sizeable chunk of O&G's for a while, all boxed up and ready for painting. I'm just waiting for 8th edition. :)

FORtheGREATERgood
03-03-2010, 20:58
In no order:

1. Empire: My second army and I don't think I could have made a better choice. I came to love the all around balance the army seems to have and the tactics needed to pull out games against my mainly dark elves, skaven, and WoC opponents. Definately helped me learn some of the finer points of the game. (No I don't run a static army as that would be boring and unfun)
2. Orcs & Goblins: My army I started out with (Battle for skull pass and some additional night goblin type units) and were a blast to play with, but as previously mentioned, sometimes the randomness got to me. Although I only play for fun with my friends, animosity is killer for me as the dice gods seem to shun me. Have a small night goblin army but plan to change that in the future with their awesome miniatures.

Angelwing
04-03-2010, 09:47
Chaos dwarfs

Tomb kings
Skaven

My other armies are in my sig :).

In order I started them:

Lizardmen (2nd in terms of time being played, 1st in number of painted units)
Dwarfs (3rd in play time, 3rd in number of painted units)
Ogre Kingdoms (1st in play time, 2nd in units painted but only slightly and the fact that 7 Ogres = 2 units and 20 Dwarfs = 1 unit ^^ )

Dark Elves, though I'm also very interested in collecting Wood Elves, time and money permitting :)

Odin
04-03-2010, 11:48
I'm not sure what my "main army" is any more. For nearly 20 years, it has been Chaos. Now of course, Chaos doesn't exist as an army. Most of my troops now fit in the Warriors of Chaos book, but it's just such a boring army to play with that I've pretty much given up on them after two decades.

I also have a small Wood Elf army, which is the one I have mostly been using instead. But that's only about 1500 points.

And I've just started collecting an Empire army - I suspect this will become my "main" army once it's built.

Spiney Norman

DUDE YOU LEFT OUT DOC!!!

I would vote for that but it aint even there!!!

What's da madda witchu?

Everyone knows that DoC aren't a real army, they're just a twisted physical manifestation of the spirit of the anti-game generated by WAAC players the world over...

In other news, I didn't know there were this many other Tomb King players in the entire world, let alone on warseer...

Gromdal
04-03-2010, 12:07
I play Bretonnia!

The space marines of warhammer fantasy (never played 40k...)

Why?
They are epic in the fluff, awesome models, great rules on the battlefield, powerful cc and great offensive power, less models AND good armor.

Chivalry will never die!!!

I could not vote for brets though, cuz your poll dont have them!!!

Grand Warlord
04-03-2010, 13:46
For some reason I always end up going back to the empire, so that's generally my main army.

In other news, I didn't know there were this many other Tomb King players in the entire world, let alone on warseer...

Me either! My rough estimate was about 10 Tomb King players total. To date, it's the only army I play. I'm seriously considering a WoC army, but we'll see.

1. Ogre Kingdoms (so, I couldn`t vote in your poll)
2. Troll Kingdoms (just to tide me over until new OK book comes out)
3. Daemons of Chaos (but I never use them in WFB anymore for all the reasons that everyone knows about)

I play dogs of war. I'm a bit disheartened that they aren't on your list :cries:

*********
I have just updated the poll. unfortunately polls allow a maximum of 10 options so the following were the 5 I decided to leave out because from what I gather they are the four least played and least supported armies plus Deamons which I left out because everyone seems to have a deamon army.
bretonnia
tomb kings
ogre kingdoms
beastmen
deamons

Hmm, I play ogres as my main, (though I sold most of them atm, waiting for the update before I buy more) I would hardly call them least played, I know a few people here who love orges.
Empire is my second currently.
and I considering beastmen/tomb kings as my next army.

DE and O&G, primarily (though it's been a few years now, just getting back into things) with a healthy smattering of Empire (love the army, hate the models)

Now, either going to be digging back into The Great Green, or HE. Maybe leezards. Dunno.

Interesting that the most popular army according to the poll is the one which has had it's army book lambasted on Warseer for being poorly written and underpowered... ;) :p

My first army was Bretonnians, my second was High Elves and my third was Skaven.

I would consider my main army to be High Elves though, mainly because most of them are painted.

O&G are one of the most fun armies to play with and against; you get to witness primal nerd rage.

I heard in the new edition, they are giving O&G the "They shall know no fear!" rules to who ever collects them.

In the order:
1) (orcs and) goblins
2) ogres (1 every 5 games, let's say)


3) dark elves (a couple times, I've had the "army" for years, but I don't really want to play an unpainted army, and for now, I still got too much green to paint)

4) undead. Played it once during 6th (found it boring), once during 7th to test the new book (I totally wiped out the army of a poor empire player...), and will probably play it again only for special games. That army actually belongs as much to my bro as it belongs to me.

I've been playing gobs since 5th ed, and unlike some people, I don't sell/stop playing my armies because they're not the most poweful ones.

Amen to that. Totally agree. :)

just decided to switch my main army from vc to warriors of chaos after flipping through their army book. it's right up my alley.

doesn't hurt that the warriors of chaos battalion box actually seems like something of a decent deal, too.

Vampire Counts are my favourite and main army.

(I'm waiting for the Tomb King release too).

The Warriors of Chaos battalion is an easy 1,000 points. You could squeeze in Marauder Horsemen and get the Fast Cav goodness. $112 US for a hard-hitting army.

5xChaos Marauders, Mark of Slaanesh
10xWarriors, XhW, Mark of Khorne
10xMarauders, flails
10xMaraders, flaits
5xWarhounds
5xWarhounds
5xChaos Knights
Chaos Sorcerer of Tzeentch, Lvl 2, Power Familiar
Exalted of Chaos, Shield

981, 5 power dice, 3 dispel

Swap out Exalted for another Lvl 2 Sorcerer and you have a seven power dice. That's a ton at 1k. 976. Fill it with whatever.

Convert the heroes from two of the 12 warriors in the battalion.

As they should be. That's why I predict and Empire and O&G army book before Tomb Kings, Ogres or Brettonians. GW wants to make money and those are popular armies.

While this is not the best thread for that, I did post a list a few posts back that you can make from the Warriors of Chaos battalion. :P

For the sake of staying on topic, search for posts regarding your query :)

I didn't mean to make it look like i'd gone of topic, I was simply stating what army I collected :) and the fact I'm new to them :)

Orcs and Goblins. I seem to be the only O&G player who doesn't see the fun in playing more goblins than Orcs. Orcs are the best!

Tomb Kings and Dark elves

I play (in order of awesomeness):

-Orcs
-Dwarfs
-Lizardmen

Ditto

The best part is, if I had been playing for longer, the rest of my list would probably also match... lol

Orcs & Goblins, specifically a Night Goblin horde, Chaos in the old times, so that's DoC, WoC and Beasts now, a bit of Empire and Dwarfs.

Tomb Kings
Wood Elves
High Elves
Dark Elves
Daemons of Chaos
Empire
Skaven
Lizardmen
Beastmen


I think that's it..... the biggest problem i have is painting all of those armys! LOL (As i have about the same number of 40k armies as well)
