Default Chaos or guard

Well i'm in a delema here i have a very limited budget and was wondering should i continue to collect chaos or guard. I have about 1500 points of guard and about 300-400 points of chaos i find boeams fun gameplaywise and easy to paint. Which should i collect? I'll take any suggestion.

Chaos. ;D Then you can build your Guard force that you have right now as Traitor Guard and end up with a 3,000 point apocalypse force. Besides Chaos rocks.

Chaos are fun to play that is true. Also if you get guard are getting a new codex first so you will not have to adjust. Then you can also take your guard as chaos guard as well. Painting is also an important part of the hobby. You already can play with gaurd if you want to so why not. Also small games are better on low budgets in my opinion. Playing 2000 point games requires you to buy 2000 points worth of models. It also comes into what you can find opponents to play against though.

Actually one thing it comes down to is the size of games you like to play if you like to play large apocalypse games with guard then maybe you should get more. However I think chaos is better at that point. In my experience, sometimes armies get boring and you may want to switch it up a bit especially if you start playing a lot.

When I first started 40k I had a similar dilemma, I went with Chaos because the models are cool. You have already got loads of Guard so I recommend you to do some more Chaos!!!
