Default Starting a New Army - help please

So me and my 33 friends are thinking about starting a common army where we will pool money together to buy a new army so that anybody who wants to play it can. So we will have 5 armies isntead of 4 so we can mix it up a bit sometimes. We already have tau, eldar, SM and CSM. We want to start something totally different maybe a horde army. Any ideas? IG, nids and necrons came up in discussions.

Well, there is no point in buying another tau army. We are trying to mix things up and see some new strats and armies. IG might be good. Kinda hordy from what I read and got some nasty basilisk artillery.

If you're looking for something really different that will give you and your friends plenty of room for conversions and have a really fluffy army, then I invite you to have a read in Tau Online's Lost and the Damned - Know Thy Self. It's a little bit of everything, from the hordes of mutants and guardsmen (traitors) to big daemons and heavy leman russ tanks and basilisks. You can have it all and a cup of tea.

Otherwise - the new Tyranid codex is so near, it's kind of hard to resist taking a look into it

There's always a massive Kroot Mercenary army

I'd suggest looking into the more variant codices and chapter approved ways to field various armies. For example, why just collect Guard when you could build a Last Chancers guard army? Take a look at the Cadian Shock Troops of the Eye of Terror.

I would personally go for kroot mercenary army if your looking for something really different, and lost and the damned is allways a fun army to play.

Lol. The army must actually be able to win. I can't imagine kroot mercenaries beating tau, sm, eldar or csm.

HEY! Curb yer tongue around pfreck, then! Kroot mercs rock, actually, by sheer force. In one unit you can have 20 Kroot Warriors and 40 Kroot Hounds!
But I'd advise Nids, because of all the new stuff...

You should try Orks or Nids, both hordes, one's just funnier than the other.

Thre's going to be a whole heap of Tyranid articles and things coming up in WD, this is going to be an army that is well supported in the literature. Plus there's the new Carnifex to try and resist, but why bother?

It'll be the flavour of the month, but as the codices are coming out more slowly these days it'll be flavour of the month for a few months to come. Orks are always fun, but for an enemy everyone can hate, and soon to be nastier than ever before, go Nids.
