Default The Most Elite Army

By this I mean, Pure Grey Knight army, Deathwatch army, Armoured Company, etc.

Other than those, I am pretty ignorant, so please help.

My motive is I want to buy VERY few models at a time and (basically) do a Golden daemon paint job on them, and build the whole army this way. That is why an elite army is preferable.

Thnx!

harlequins would probably be your best bet...after that, probably super-tooled chaos or GK

BUT Dark angels would be amazing if you like terminators that are like 32 pts.

necrons are among the cheapest armies to collect, from what I hear. *Grey nights are small in numbers, but I don't know about price. *bloodied fangs hit the cheapest army to collect, which is Harlequins. *If you play them though, don't count on having people love to play against you.....

A reasonable amount of money is not an issue because this will be spread out over years of hobbying. I want this to be primarily a hobby, yet playable.

What are Harlequins? I've heard of them, otherwise I'm totally ignorant (be aware I can't access EO).

They'd actually be fun to paint (they look like brightly colored clowns... thats why they're harlequins)
But nobody really likes to play vs them. They have rules that would make any seasoned player cringe.... :P
