Hi all

I am starting to look around for a new Elite Army to collect.

By Elite I mean -

a/ small body count

b/ highish points per model (well I suppose b/ equates to a/ anyhow:p

c/ little - used Minis (e.g. Vostroyans)

I already have DH, AC, SM. completed, and CSM (World Eaters w.i.p.)

I was thinking maybe Deathwing or Godzilla, but am stuck for other choices.

Any ideas?

How about Iyanden? I don't see that army hardly ever in my area. Maybe Thousand Sons? Although that doesn't pass the "C" criteria.

What about Thousand Sons? They nearly fit your list perfectly:D!!
Just kiddin'...I think Deathwing is your best bet, here.

Guardian Jet Bike squads or Wraithguard as troops are fairly expencive points wise, can't fit too many into an army. Harlequins out of Elites.

This doesn't match up with c/ but few units will.

Well if already done the collected the ones you listed then Eldar I would suggest being the obivious choice alot of aspect warriors will soon eat up points.

try a lysander imperial fist army, they can fit all of those categories pretty damn well, other than that go the godzilla list!

Because a Lysander list is rare. =.=

Sisters of Battle are an elite force, have the best infantry in the game, period (Seraphim), have one of the best tanks, a decent points cost for their basic infantry (11 for battle sisters (bolter girls), 22 for seraphim (jump packers)), and best of all? They work best when fully mechanised!

Pure Grey Knights!!!

hey slave, i havent seen a lysander army for ages, so i thought they might be a bit rarer than the death wing army of ass! pure grey knights is fun but lysander army seems funner

some elitist ideas:

Pure Grey Knights
Any Chaos Cult list (especially 1k sons)
Themed Iyanden
Mechanised Kasrkin/Carapace Guard
Mechanized Sisters of Battle
Immortal/Destroyer-heavy Necrons

just some ideas.

Deathwing is what you're looking for.

5 boxes of terminators and a chaplain. That's 1,500pts.

a/ small body count
- Probably the smallest in the game.

b/ highish points per model (well I suppose b/ equates to a/ anyhow
- hell yes!

c/ little used minis
- Not quite, but when they look so cool who cares?

If you want the little used aspect with Deathwing dont forgeworld do some extra bits for termies?

yes, some nice deathwing shoulderpads and some incredibly nice dreadnought and land raider options.

Armoured company. Smallest army on the table top easily. And they aren't that common (tough not rare either).

edit: didn't noticed the AC in your first post. Why not try sisters then? They are definitely not played every day.

Space Wolves 13th Company?
