i have been playing the fantasy side of warhammer for a few years and would like to get into 40k but i am not sure wat army i should pick...my two buddies are into 40k as well one has Tau and the other elder and some space marines...i was thinking bout doing the space wolves but im still kinda unsure...maybe some in put on maybe an army that could combat them both....or a diff chapter of space marines lol im not too sure bout it at all so some help would b really nice lol
There's a neat "which army should I pick" thread in the "40K army" forum, scroll down a bit on that page.
Any army can fight any other army. Space Wolves are a flavorful chapter of marines that are actually getting an update in a couple months here, so if you want to pick them up, now is a great time (right when everyone else does...>>)
Things to consider when you want to start an army are:
Close Combat and/or Shooting
Fast or Tough
Alien or Imperial or Chaos
Quantity or Quality
Evil v.s. Morally/Ethically deficient (no good-guys, sorry, it's grimdark)
Vehicles and/or Infantry
Space wolves fit under
Close combat (with a side of shooty), tough, Imperial, Quality, ethically deficient, vehicle and infantry.
Also do you like wolves, and vikings? because besides being 7 foot tall super-soldiers, that's them.
their are much things to think about when taking up a new army
tyranids love close combat, but can have also have some heavy firing
orks rely on their hugn numbers to win
tau have good firepower, but arent that good in CC
eldar can be lethal if you have the right units and setup for who your playing, but are also very easy to lose with(i know)
DE dont know much about them
IG can field lots of troops, but rely upon their masses of tanks to destroy the enemy(i also know about this)
marines, good firepower, and ok in close combat
necrons, good, can come back to life
inquisition, dont know much about (DH,WH)
chaos demons and chaos space marines, evil, and you can summon demons(apparently)
i went with eldar, and am still trying to build a succsessful army, but with some any units will do, others, you have to plan what you want

Moved to 40k. Make sure you check out the stickies as has been mentioned.
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
