For example WOC could be heavy metal
Orcs could be rock or metal
Daemons could be glam rock :cheese:
High Elves I would go with opera music (preferably some with loads of tragedy and melancholy in it)
Vampires, something 'Goth' obviously. Michael Jackson's Thriller? :p

Any thoughts? Specific songs = even better :)

The Empire and specifically Warrior Priests of Sigmar would get the theme song Unknown Soldier - Breaking Benjamin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9HoIPCWGsY) (which I would give to the IG in 40k too).

Start the song, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9HoIPCWGsY) mute the video (duh) and watch it. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3pOljQqvX8) Actually the video is a bit shorter than the song and it's not the best fit, but whatever...

Anything other than Generic rock.

Orcs would get 80's hip hop.(Slam, let the boys be boys)

Night gobbos would get 90's rap (Boys in the hood)

Empire would get Extreme religion music. (Satan, we're gonna tear your kingdom down)

Chaos would get a corrupted form of religion music.

woodelves would get nature sounds/ native music.

Beastmen would get sounds of animals fighting and screams/ mosh pit/90's gansta rap

Dwarves would get working music (16 tonnes)

Elves would get majestic fanfares (Heroes of might and magic 2)

Dark elves would get Klingon battle them

Tomb kings would get egypt theme from age of mythologies

Oh... and if the Dark Elves should have any song dedicated to them (though again, I believe it fits more clearly with the Dark Eldar) it's this one. (http://grooveshark.com/s/Room+101/2zE0GX?src=5)

A couple more thoughts...

Dwarfs: Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries (for gyrocopters)
Vamps: Cradle of Filth's Nymphetamine Fix (theme for Vlad and Isabella)

Skaven any 'evil themed music'. But you could also have Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run (away). ;)

Daemons could be glam rock :cheese:


Ehhh what? Do you know what glam rock is? It's bad party music with power ballads, and all the songs are about girls -.-'.

I get the sense you might mean power metal, that's the music that's always about deamons and dragons.

I would probably like some nice medieval court music for brets.

Various actual medieval/Renaissance tunes. What else?

Whenever I see dwarves march into battle I'm always humming "Heigh-Ho" from Snow White :)

As for Woodelves... tbh they are the *least* likely to have "sounds of nature" playing; I would have to say prog rock for outside of battle (e.g. "Pink Floyd - Julia's Dream") and then once they are on the rampage Mutter by Rammstein or something else terrifying :P

As for high Elves... "Prelude: song of the gulls by King Crimson"; its pretention in a song! :D

And Skaven... anyone else thinking Gremlins Theme song :D

If you don't think "Sounds of nature can be scary get lost in the woods. Then stay there at night. make them the woods from the tales from the dark side intro. Open your mind to more music than rock.

Actually I find the sounds very relaxing when I stay in my mate's woodland :) - and if you think Heigh-Ho is rock you might need to listen to it again :P

Beastmen: I dont know, some tribal music maybee east european folk music.

Brettonia: Old ballads. brittish and french folk music.

Demons of chaos: Black metal i think, same kind of music thats used for the Tainted coil in BŁtal legend.

Dark elves: Maybe Synth music or techno. Not heavy but neither pure.

Dwarfs: Prog/punk or somethign like that. Music that glorifies the hard labourer.

High elves: Like Speed metal, powermetal or gothic metal. Think Freedom call or sonata arctica. Like the dark elfs not heavy, but alot purer then the dark elfs music. I see all the elfs have a keyboard/keytar in their band.

Lizardmen: The only think i can think of is Welcome to the jungle.

OK: never heard a band sing about eating so i'll pass.

O&G: The songs the crowd sing at soccer games, orcs always make me think of football hooligans. Or maybee Dropkick murphy's or something. Something brittish at any rate.

Skaven: Rap hip-hop and that stuff.

The empire: Ramstein? No but seriously, country/western maybee. Songs about the common man standing up to chalanges. Or maybe classic rock, CCR?

Tombkings: Pharao-Freedom call just beacuse of the lyrics. Nah but same kind as Helfs but with a guitarr instead of a keytar.

vampire counts: Goth rock, Gothic metal, music that people who dye their hair black and wear way to much mascara listen too =P

Warriors of Chaos: Manowar, Sabaton megadeath children of bodom that sort of thing. Maybee metallica, but that could be empire aswell.

Wood elfs: Dont worry be happy, hippie music.

And I think the 1812 Overture would fit with the Bretonnia what with the church bells and the bits from la Marseillaise.

Wasn't that a piece about trolls?

The 1812 would clearly be Kislev. The French bits in that piece are simply there to depict the enemy.

I like. It rises and keeps rising that feels very right for the Helfs. There's a certain mekancholy to it but alsoa certain splendour. the drums help alot and the brass instruments ofc.

This is all personal taste, but the ONLY song/army combo that I feel certain is the best would have to be "Court of the Crimson King" by King Crimson for the Vampire Counts. That song is just pure evil. Interesting fact, this song/artist is referenced in the Tomb Kings army book.

Vampire's = psycho-billy ( somthing with a zombie undead theme ) like zombie ghost train , horror pops, necromantix.
Orks en Goblins. some kind of punk. peterpan speed rock ( or something like that)
