Default okay... same old question. but i needs an answer

Im thinking of doing an army. A cool one. with lots of conversions.

My only problem is what?

I have:

Slaaneshi cult with "naughty" battle sisters. And a really cool DP conversion

Or

An army of "flood" from halo.

well unfortunately, my answer will be painfully unoriginal, which do you like the idea of more? Which will you get the most enjoyment out of?


if you can't decide then i'd suggest converting 7 painting a squad for each, then go with whichever was easier or most fun to do.

Sculpt a lot of of smooth roundness and you've got flood. That's not very characteristic of zombies.

Couldn't you somehow just combine the armies? I mean there are plenty of Chaos units that could do quite well for the Flood...

nothing is wrong with zombies. its just that the flood aren't your normal "brains!" type of zombie. And if i do it wrong then it will be a massive waste of money

When you say 'Flood' are you taking about a 'nid based army? If you are you could combine chaos traitor guards (guard, with chaos bitz) with some 'nid bitz. You would have to decide on a kind of list you want, but if it helps I'll look through my bitz to see what looks good...

They don't have to look like zombies, but what if you mixed some fantasy zombies into your troops?...

I'd do the slaaneshi cult, mainly cuz I despise Halo.

Even though I am a Halo nut, I do have to agree with The Guv. The Flood army basically spoon feeds your fluff, leaving little room for you to add your personal touch, plus it's not really an orginal idea?

Whilst the Slaneeshi Battle Sisters is orginal, and pretty cool as-well....

I would say go for the Slaneesh force, more fun, more fluff....
