Default Small army

What’s the smallest legal 2000 point army list in 40K? Any Army is fine as long as there is a rule book for it. I just want to make something tiny!

Hm. Deathwing?

Or Heed The Wisdom Of The Ancients and max out the Dreads.

Or Nidzilla.

Or an Armoured Company =D

IIRC, I think with the old Chaos Codex, you could take a lord with an infinite number of minor psychic powers. You could have a 100,000 pt 11 man army, or something along those lines.

Realistically, I would suggest Marines, Elite Guard, or Armoured Company

How can you guys forget about the Pure GK army? It is like a big hole with a sign on it that reads: "Throw here your points". :P

Cheers, Alexnader.

Blood angels? Mephiston and Dante, thats like what, 500-650pts right there, your basic troops, maxed out, then whats left of points throw into filling Death Company or adding decked out veteran assault squads.

IMO this would have the lowest model count... I mean you could max out on GK Terminators, and have minimized GK Squads...

Ehm... One of my friends suggested an armoured company of three tanks at 1500p... SO, you get four tanks...

A pure Grey Knights army will really soak up the points in a hurry. You could max out the Grand Master with stuff like Holocaust, Psychic Hood, Auspex, etc and have a 250+ pts character. Then with a Terminator Retinue coming in at ~ 500 pts...
Anyway, that or a pure Deathwing force, but I believe GK will be slightly more points-intensive.

Good Luck...

Well, if you don't mind it being quasi-legal (meaning you need your opponents consent), you could use movie marines.
If it's not against the rules I'll post them up here (have them saved on my Comp.).
