Um thats a hard one, as you do contradict yourself there abit.
If you like guns there is tau, but then you like cc so then the best bet is eldar or space marines.
Then you like tons of men which isn't going to happen with eldar unless you have an entire guardian army or space marines unless you go entirely scouts.
Then saves that aren't 6 so it means it a no to kroot mercenaries, orks or really dark eldar or basic IG (as their save of 5+ is just as bad).
I don't like smurfs :sadnshocked:.
I don't want an automatic advantage so no space marines.
I like fun games (that depends on who you play).
I want cool models (personal preference there).

so in short you haven't given yourself many options.

sos is that better :P

Firstly, capitalization goes a long way, as does well written posts. Same for Madmonkey. Take a bit more time on your posts, its a lot better.


Secondly, the things you want, apply to pretty much any army there is. Every army can do what you say you want, you need to either pick an army based on its background, or on its fighting style.

We are here to help, but what you asked for can be applied to any army, so its really hard to suggest something.

Do you like fast moving, devastating close range shooting? An all round force that can react to every eventuality? A massive hoard of combat killers looking for a crumpin? An army that relies on its heavy tanks and massive amounts of firepower?

Sounds like you're a prime candidate for an Inquisition army!

Grey Knights, Penitent Engines, Seraphim, (to a certain extent) Repentia, we've got CC galore.

Quote:
i like tons of men
Inducted Guard or Inquisitorial Storm Troopers gives us power in numbers, plus we've got solid 3+ saves to back them up in the form of Sororitas or Grey Knights.


Quote:
i like saves that are not 6
Inquisitorial Storm troopers, again.

Quote:
i dont like SMurfs
With Witch Hunters, there doesn't have to be a single Marine in sight if you don't want them.

Quote:
i dont want to have an automatic advantage
Inquisition Armies take more tactical thinking than a lot of the other armies. You really don't have a single advantage, you have to figure out how to use your assets to come out on top, as it should be.

Quote:
i like fun games
I've had some of the most fun using my Witch Hunters than my other armies.

Quote:
i want cool models
We've got some of the coolest models in 40K. I particularly like the Penitent Engine. St. Celestine is also a beautiful sculpt.

Quote:

As I said before, I think the Inquisition may be your best choice from the information you've given. But its all up to you.

I agree with the all-father. It sounds like the Inquisition is the way to go. 8)

Or you could always go deamonhunters, those GK terminator models are amazing and they are good at close combat and shooting. The inquisitors have a wide selection of equipment aswell

i would say Eldar, i don't know if you get big numbers out of them but with howling banshees, dark reapers, fire dragons, harlequin i definitive would say they got guns and close combat,
other candidates would be TAU, battlesuits and kroots, kroots are big in number and the basic close combat unit of TAU while battlesuits will provide you with big guns, also their vehicles does and fire warriors. At last you can choose the inquisition, induct guards to get the right number and some fine tanks, while daemonhunters have the best units for close combat purpose however they are expensive and few in numbers, witch hunters have seraphim's which might get handy also i personally like their special characters.
