Default Where do I go from here?

Hello all.

I'm an avid fantasy player, Ive been collecting Chaos for almost 3 years now. I have an impressive force of 3000pts mixed between Undivided (Archaon included!), Khorne and Tzeench.

But now, one of my friends (you might know him as 42) has started collecting Fantasy too, and I should start collecting 40k. I have absolutely no idea what to collect, how much to buy, whether it is actually worth starting an entire army in a different game (money etc). How different is 40k to fantasy, what are its strengths / weaknesses and which army should i go for to add more variety into my playing?

Any advice - please give it! Thanks!

yo luke...., skiver

Well i have forced at gunpoint persuaded three people to join these forums, where is my free gift eh? where?

I have already given down my reasons for 40k and tried to show you its differences, i can understand you dont want me repeating myself at you but i will try and get you the rulebook to read, then you will be able to understand more things. I dont know about vice versa, but going from 40k to fantasy rules wise wasnt too taxing for me, to be honest i think it should be easy going the other way!

But anyway welcome to the forums and have a good time, if you have quesries more about the different races start a topic in those specific boards or the genereal 40k boards to get the best advice!

Hope to see you round,
--42

>Wood elves eh? When's their new book coming out, twould be good to see them as a more popular army. They're a much better army than loads of people will admit. Though they will still die at the hand of Archaon.
>Padawan eh? I'm already a Jedi Master. Look at my lightsaber! I'm even better than Kung Chao Ping (42 knows what i mean). If anything, your almost strong enough in the force to be MY padawan.

Archaon:

Welcome aboard. Good to see hearty spirits about with everyone. However, be sure to read the Forum Rules and of course, enjoy your stay!

If you come to the Chaos Forum and give us a list of your chaos armies, you could easily start into 40k with your Fantasy models and avoid the major "Buy-in" that starting a new army entails. As for Chaos in 40k, I can help you in any way you wish.

One thing is for sure--is that that 40k is easier and faster than a typical Fantasy game. Anyhow - If anything strikes your fancy in terms of armies, I'm all to happy to help with anything related to Tau, Chaos or the Inquisition (Daemonhunters and Witch Hunters).

Drop by the Chaos board and give us a shout (a list of your models more specifically, and maybe you can start playing 40k today!)

--Mal
