ok so im gonna try to sell my old templars from 3rd edition and probably most of my 5000pts of necrons. my question for yall is what type of army should i start up with again? i have a few idea and they are all over the spctrum, but im looking for feedbackon which army idea yall like the best.
i place a big emphasis on modeling and i love converting, but i also like for a list to be somewhat competeative.
so here are the possibilities:
Templars- i have tried the new odex and it think it is alot of fun, but i can think of endless modeling possiblities for these guys including a witchhunter inquisitor and a 20 man foot squad along with some drop pod squads. i love the templars and their fluff, i also love how they play
Dustwing- honestly i think this army is totally hardcore. an army of 2 wound terminators is sweet. the only problem is i cant really think of a fluffy/efficient/fun army list. i mean units in 9s and enough anti tank and stuff. i have kind of solved this in a list that had 1 squad of tzeentch terminators and 2 squads of horrors/flamers and two squads of undivided termis, and a lord of change,+ a couple of oblits. but people asked me why i just didnt go strait dustwing,bringing me back to square 1
Kult of speed- like 2 squads of bikers, and three squads of wartracks+, a squad of warbike outriders, and a command squad of nobs and a warboss, all on bikes, maybe some guntrucks and stuff for fun
slannesh biker cult- like two or three squads of 6 bikes,a lord on a bike, 3 squads of deamonetttes, and a few preds, pretty simple.
tau suit army- basicly use minimum fire warriors and 2 squads of crisis suits, a squad of stealth suits, 2 independent suit commanders, and 3 hammerheads
eldar harliquin themed army- use maxed out harliquin squads, a few Neophyte harliquins( combat guardians) i wave serpents, a few bikes, vypers, farseer modeled as a great harliquin...
slannesh-i love slannesh probably the most out of all the chaos gods, and i would love to build a list from these guys. probably combat oriented with a little fire support. the modeling possibiities are endless with these guys!

these are what i can think of at the time, but i would love yalls feedback about whatever.
on ur marks... get set... go!

Why not get the basics of an Ork army as from what everyone's heard they're almost certainly to be re-released at the end of next year so with some of units unlikely to be replaced you'll have made a good start by the time they've been released.

I think a pure Witch Hunters army could be quite cool too, Pentinent Engines!!
