Default Help picking next army

Hi everybody I want to start a new army, but I have no IDEA of which one* ??? well some idea* :

I have played Necrons disliked them for lack of wargear and other things

I have played CSM 2000 point army of Slaanesh I like them I just dont see any thing I want to expand my list is just fine

I have played Tau I started them recently after getting 1000 points worth when I traded my 1000 points in Necrons I like them I just I dont know they kinda dont feel right at times

I have played Orks I am still expanding them no complaints

ok so my choices are
Space marines any chapter well it seems like everyone plays um so Id rather not, but maybe?

Imperial Gaurd have looked I love the models but I dislike the Horde theme

Tyranids I kinda dislike Bugs

Eldar seem cool I have only played 1 game and it was against Wraith Guard so thats not much of a clue to how they play besides that they are speedy and have lots of special guys

Dark Eldar I Once considered other than thier Evilness I like them I love thier vehicles they are awesome looking


please help me decide I have 175 bucks so an army that I could get 1000 or even 1500 points with that could help

I'd say that since you don't particularly like Space Marines....

BLACK TEMPLAR!

They're not your every day Space Marines, they look different, as they have their own livery. They have Righteous zeal, something that is very different from any other army. You can give every sing slot other than fast attack a Landraider Crusader as a transport, and they have.... A mandatory Character! All you need to do is to choose what kind of vow he leads your army with before the battle..

All this and MORE can be yours if you just sign the dotted line!

*Note, any and all losses should be blamed on FT or Lonely Tau, never should they be blamed on Icer. Remember, play nice, and always kill the heretics first!

You could in Friendly games, but not in Tournaments, as Black Templar are your standard stand alone codex with no ally rules....

Unless of course you were thinking of Grey Knights?
They are the Inquisition Space Marines.


Though, it sounds as though you like the IG from that post, remember, they do not have to be hordish.

ah* : I thought Grey Knights oops
Ive never even seen a Black Templar Army what kind of special rules do they have?
and I figured with a GreyKnight IG army I could play 2 types and get a feel for both and either drop one or just stick with an army of both

For one thing, you could use the Grenadiers doctrine, which allows you to take Stormtroopers as troops, that really reduces your numbers, and lets you use some more elite units in your slots.

Like a few others apparently I've had a growing interest in the Salamanders Space Marines...I love dragons and the whole green armor and scales theme with the dragon iconography is too awesome.

Orks are just badass, with the new release in January I'd say expand on them a little. I like the Eldar models and I like the Dark Eldar even more for some reason, even though they're pretty much everything I hate (torture, screw that).

I'll suggest to you what I suggest to everyone in these threads - ORKSES!!

I know that you already have them - but why stop?

To be honest this seems like a thread to advertise different armies; so here i go with a very small advert for Dark Angels;

Dark Angels

The main thing with Dark Angels is the possibility of an all terminator army if you use the Master of the Deathwing, which when painted in their Dark Angel's way, look very cool (IMHO anyway). Or an all Biker army when you use the Master of the Ravenwing (With a very cool jetbike). Or you can have a mix of both. Also their models look very nice.
