I would have made a "which army do you play as main army" but the pol only alowes 10 choices.

So instead:
Which race do you think is played the most?

Judging by the Pigmar club I reckon I'd say Warriors of Chaos as ~50% of the club seems to have them as their main army or one of their armies...

Judging by my Club it would be Either skaven or Woc.

In my experience, WoC. How come so many people voted O&G? Not many people a) have the patience to paint that many models, b) like their armies doing random stuff. I might be wrong though, or maybe there was some extra uptake due to BfSP

I guess that it's the Empire... Can't imagine why Games Workshop would put such a colossal amount of fucus on them if otherwise.

I voted empire because our group just started an empire painting league...

In which you will be owned. By me.

I voted Warriors of Chaos as most times I hear about people's armies, they seem to mention a chaos army of some sort.

From what I've heard it seems that WoC is the most popular army, followed by the Empire.

I was just going to say pretty much this but I see Ken has beaten me to it..!

WoC in my experience, including myself!

I've actually never even seen an O&G army. Ever.

I voted dark elfs, but now that i'm thinking about it I think I am wrong.

We got 3 players with Dark elfs, 1 who uses it as main army
We got 4 O&G armies, 1 just joined the club last week and a total of 3 have it as a main army
1 Bretonnian army
2 Skaven armies, although they are rarely played
1 Beastmenarmy
3 Lizardmen armies, 1 plays it as his main
4 Empire armies, all secondary armies
2 Wood elf armies
2 Vampire counts armies, 1 plays it as his main
2 Ogre Kingdoms armies, although I have only seen it played by 1 guy once.
1 High elf army
1 Dwarf army, secondary army.

Most actively played armies are Lizardmen, Orcs and Goblins, Vampire Counts and Dark elves and beastmen. We don't have any WoC, Daemons or Tomb Kings.

Warriors of Chaos do seem very popular.

vampires, High Elves and Lizardmen always seem to have plenty of followers.

A lot of people will end up with Empire or Orc & Goblin armies eventually, but not always as their primary choice.

In the groups and tournaments around here yoou see more orcs and ogre kingdoms than usual, but I would say WoC and lizardmen are most popular.

Here it's Dark Elves, though most of our players have 4+ armies each.

WoC are the space marines of fantasy tbh. every new player likes a chunky armour save, easy to paint models, and some hugely powerful fighting units.

i think the comparison is valid ^^

Funny, at my local GW I haven't seen a single WoC army, in fact, I was informed that I was the third person to pick up a WoC Battalion since the store opened a year and a half ago.

I generally see a wide range of armies, with the most common being O&G, followed by Dark Elves.

But to be honest, it's really well spread out, last time I was there there were two tables with Space Marines vs Space Marines and then two WFB tables (split in two for 1000 pt games) where I saw O&G v Ogres, O&G v High Elves, Dark Elves v Lizardmen and Beastmen vs Vamp Counts.

of the 9 guys i used to collect with and game with regularly, the only army that was duplicated was warriors of chaos, and whenever i've wandered into a gw store in the last few years they seem to be very popular. i've always put it down to chaos warriors, chaos knights, and the fact they're very easy to paint to a tabletop standard. i just percieve them as a perfect army for beginners.
