I recently started using ron warrors after using blood angels for ages. However Im thinking about going back to the BA as cc is just so much more fun. Should I keep going with my shooty iron warriors or give up and go back to my cc BA? does standing and shooting ever get fun?
it just depends on the person. I myself find close combat much more fun and worthwhile, but many find shooting more fun
it appears you are like me heh
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
As for the IW or BA question, no one on this site can answer that question...
The fun with IW i find is the contrast to my past army (heavy CC Tyranid), and i have to use new strategies. Shooting is most fun when you see the look on your opponent's face when you just downed his 360 (or 380?) point C'tan in turn 1 after succumbing to 7 consecutive Lascannon shots.
I love a combination of both, since you can play shooty against choppa armies and choppa against shooty armies.

Well since Im a tyranid player, I prefer HtH. but I do like shooring aswel, especially with biovores, they're usually a really fire support unit!
I think it all depends on the person and the army, some armies are more fun to shoot with than others and some armies are more fun to gey into HtH, I think that you must really decide on your own, anyway you can still use both armies oy use a combination of both!

I really enjoy the concept of armies tearing achother apart in brutal hand to hand combat, but I think once i finish my FT i might start a shooty Army,just to see if i like it..all I have now are my FT and my white Scars and both of those are pretty close range
I'd like an army that shoots close combat units. That's why I'm designing an IW basilisk that shoots demon princes.

I prefer a combination of both. I always liked to have both possibilities.
Same as Elgie here, I like a mix. I have extreme assaulty power in the form of Possessed and Raptors, and incredible shootiness in the form of Havocs and Obliterators.
I have a question though: Why is shooting neglected so much in characters and independent characters?
It seems to me that only BiD (and the Tau, but they don't count ) realizes how much shootiness is worth in special characters. Most Characters are geared for the close assault. I recognize the importance in giving your characters big guns as well. Also, in the armories of most of the lists, they rarely have big guns for your characters. Most armies (except Tau, but again, they don't count ) rarely have a big-gun option for your special characters. They have a high ballistics skill and this shouldn't be put to waste. I guess this is why I like Maugan Ra and Tzeentch sorcery so much, big-guns for your characters!
i gotta say that i love CC
the tearing and blood and killing and the tearing of flesh and the evil and the MC named fluffy and the KILLING and the BLOOD again and the FUN!
ok enuff ranting
but anyway I'm a DH player so CC is my faveorite thing
plus I'm thinking on starting a BA army so that proves my dedication to the CC cult!
and there ya go
When cities burn and armies turn
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day,
But warriors know it in their marrow when they
die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have
fought at all.
the keeper of the stuff!
the knower of werty!
the master of the obvious!
