Default what to get........

hi guys, i am having a bit of trouble making a decision here and i am hoping for some help.


due to me moving house, leaving my current job etc etc etc....

i am not going to be able to afford anything in the hobby for a while. to that end, i want to buy a collection/model that i can show people and watch them go "WOW!! thats awesome!!!".

i can spare 160 (i'll guess it comes to $300us ) for said model/collection.


i am looking at the options above at the moment but here is a brief explination for them:


Revenant Titan - comes in at exactly what i can afford to spend, and i'm going to games day in september.... plus the model is just awesome and certainly fits the bill of "centerpiece" model.

a couple of (small) aeronautica fleets - i have the rules and i think they are simply awesome, but there is no-one here who plays the game. this would give me a collection of (cool looking) models that pretty much nobody has and would let me introduce people to the game.

the "green tide" of orks - every ork army i've seen with the new models wimps out at about 60 orks (plus trukks, stormboyz, bikes etc) - this would give me a massive horde to begin with, and would make a nice start on my ork army of 166 models should i ever get the chance to start it again

the space marine "strike force" - simply becuase it is a cool collection and it saves you 30 odd as well.

New marine stuff - i'm assuming that the new marine book will be available at gamesday UK. if it is i am very tempted to get a collection of the new models (the scout sergeant for example is a very impressive model)

2 necron pylons (or 1 and a load of extra necron stuff...) - my necrons are currently just a horde of warriors with one desroyer squad, 1 destroyer lord, 2 monoliths and the nightbringer - some extra, "cool", models would go well with them.



well, thats what i'm deciding between at the moment. i am currently leaning towards the revenant but i am open to suggestion

I voted for the pylons because it looks cool and I like Necrons, but the Titan is awesome too. Where do you buy the pylons?

I voted for the Necron Pylons, well, since you have already got a Necron Army, why not just add a Pylon? :P

I'm saying the Revanant.

One Pylon would give the "WOW!! thats awesome!!!" effect, although nowhere near as much as the Revanant would, two Pylons would probably give you comments to the effect of "thats a bit cheezey".

Besides, the Revenant is utter pwnage, with a capital PWN.

I'd say get the Revenent, only if you promise to do a blog, cause i love to watch a titan come together...

otherwise, do the orks, because then you would have the base for another army.

a very tempting prospect.....

but the place i'm moving to in september doesnt have the internet at the moment so it could be a good few months before i manage to upload the pics....

you've persuaded me in the direction of the revenant for now (though aeronautica still interests me......... > ??? > )

If you did start Aeronautica, which race would you be playing as?
