Well im used to play HE, Empire and chaos when I feel like.

Im looking for somthing with character and some converstion ideas and an army that can do something in all the phases.

You never stick to an idea anyway Weregerbil. Remember that Ork GT army last year? Nice TALLARNS!:p

Ogre Kingdoms can do something in all phases and personally if I were to start them, I'd just load up on battalion boxes and convert everything from it. Barring that, you might wanna try Lizardmen or Wood Elves.

Skaven are the answer.

And as far as battalions go, you save pretty good $ with the ratties.

... lol?

Sorta makes up for the fact that the ratties themselves aren't worth much points-wise?

Which still doesn't come out to be very good compared to the cost/pt ratio and you get argueably "useless" models in the form of rat ogres.

@Weregerbil

You have another thread saying you plan a Vampire Counts army. Still going ahead with that or changed your mind? I'm gonna vote for the Lizardmen suggested by Gorenut as an alternative to the Vamps.

Convert a sylvanian style undead army using bretonnian and vampire counts plastics.

Undead Dwarves of khemri would be a hoot.

Argg my head. I did work out a chaos army last night which I liked(mainly cause I can pick it up for less than £100). Ogres I have the army box somewhere. Catferret Vamps are still a thought but I HATE putting skellies together. Skaven?? Have you seen my sig?

I shoul probley also mention that this is going to be a tourament army as well so competative would be good to.

Empire Longrifle Horde. Snigger....

Seriously though, Chaos Nurgle. With a Dragon!

Weregerbil
05-01-2007, 00:45
No not Nurgle and I will slap you and Ian if you mention that empire army again!

Catferret
05-01-2007, 00:47
Nowt wrong with 18 Longrifles in 2000pts...:D

Chaos Undivided then. Reroll your Stupidity for Helm of Many Eyes.

I'd go with Dwarfs; they have more shooting power than Empire (or at least equal) and they have infantry that can go toe to toe with chaos.

Weregerbil
05-01-2007, 15:10
Dwarfs are just so boring though.

Cloud Strife
05-01-2007, 15:39
yeah, unfortunately the other problem is that its actually a lie that Dwarfs have a good mass of firepower due to the fact that they are rock-solid in combat as you end up having to pay 15 points for a Thunderer, and only 8 for a Handgunner unless they've changed recently. As a result I've found that unfortunately the best way to use Dwarf shooting is load up on Artillery pieces if you want a good amount of reliable fire-power.

As for what army to take I would back up the Lizardmen suggestion as they have enough good stuff to be used in all phases and tend to be very good at most things, and there isn't nothing more pleasing to take a 2nd Gen Slann and his one Skink priest and blast an army with 4 mages to bits... :) and to be honest I think that they can be very competitive, however, I'm not too sure on how much you can do with converting as haven't really looked at my bros Lizards to see what can be done.

The Lizardmen models are nasty.

pirates of the vampire coast

Every one loves undead pirates

Catferret

Ooh, good choice! I'd forgotten about them. Yeah, zombie pirates! Better than Lizards any day!

You could base it on an empire army and give them longrifles

Weregerbil
06-01-2007, 22:42
I wonder if it is possible to slap every one in the world at once? Lets find out!

Karnesdorff

I think the Zombie Pirates would be good. Different from others, and you won't have too much to paint becuase a lot of the unit selections are rubbish and you wouldn't want to take them...

if you don't like skellies why not do a vamp army consisting of lots of zombies, afterall you can get 100 of them for 600pts

Dude, you're WAY too picky about your army. You've shot down almost any option that's available. By my count there's only Orcs and Goblins and Ogres left that you haven't formally said 'No' to - unless you count the Brets, but I thought you might find them too much to paint.

Ive been looking at brets recently and I do like the models. The paint is a worry but i might try my hand at painting a few.

And whats wrong with being picky about my army its going to cost me lots of money so I want to make sure its one I want.

Weregerbil
07-01-2007, 03:34
And yes chaos are a mabey.

How about the Cult of Slaanesh? You can use both DE and Chaos and allows for loads of conversions.

It was more the fact that you flat out refused almost every army available to you. :) Brets are very cost effective due to the price of their units, methinks, btw.
