hi

im currently deciding on a new army and ive come down to 3
empire
vampire counts(strogi or blood dragon)
orcs (an all orc army no gobboes in site)

so what would you recomend
im after something very different from ogres, something that has a few conversion possabilites and an army that needs some practice to use properly
also this army will be built upon to about 10,000 points so i need some options
(i might venture into common gobboes with the orc army)

PS thanks in advance

Empire, the new models look excelent, and they are pretty easy to use i think

I'd say you can't go wrong with Empire or Orcs. Vampire Counts are supposedly getting updated within a year (after Empire and HE).

Empire is th only suggestion I am going to give you. VC are one dimensional and I do not wish the burden of a gallon of green paint on anyone.

Well, if the man wants to go Orc heavy, it's not so bad. I'm actually really tempted to start Orcs too. I always kinda wanted to do Black Orc army and now it's viable without the Storm of Chaos list.

Hell, so many of the armies are one-dimensional really. At least on paper. That's why you gotta try out new ways to play them.

Hmm.

I play both Vc and Empire.

My favourite is the Empire. I just like to play things that are not to alien. I also like the fact that there is so much choice. You could play heavy infantary, shooting or cavalary, or a balanced army. If you have a large collection you never have to use the same army twice. :D. The plastic boxes also gives you lot of options on how put them together, and the option to mix the sets. (The soon to be outdated soldier box are great at this, even if the new one looks better)

The reason why I like VC is that they are the most fun to model. Putting together zombies is a lot of fun, espesially when you mix them with other sets. There is also the "how many zombies from one box" challenge. Skeletons are also fun, and mixing skeletons parts with knight sets (Empire or bretonnian) gives great black knights and you get to use you're imagination. I don't think there is to much option when it comes to putting the army together, so in my experience the armies I use look the same.

I don't play O&G but my brother do. They have lots of option to, and have some weird stuff aswell. I guess they are fun to build.

So if you are going to collect 200 points I would go VC. If you want to have a lifetime army I would go for empire or O&G.

But I have to vote empire as they are my favourit.

if you like the human feel go with empire

if you like vampire and horror movies go with vampire counts

if you like lord of the rings go with orcs

There's also nothing as tedious and boring after 2 games.

Putting together 200 zombies would result in some weird zombies. :p :skull:

Go Empire their army book is coming out soon and they have some cool modles (besides the fire wizard:eyebrows:). Besides that they are very diverse army. It can be very shooty. It can have loads of Infantry. It can be Cavalry heavy. Its really cool.

They do? I think the army "deals" are rather lame. However, I am waiting for the Empire's rumored detachment boxes which will have 30 models for $50, which equates to cheaper than most regiment boxes out there. If anything, that's the deal to look out for. I'll get atleast 2 boxes of those.
