Since most of us know games workshop has started a competition, and the only way to enter is though registering on the gameswork shop main site. after registering you automaticly go into the draw, the prizes are as followed
1st: Fully paid trip to england to see warhammer world with you and a mate, and get a free tour of the factory.
2nd: All new releases for the next 12 months you get (free stuff)
3rd: a 5000 point dream army of your choice.
I would prefer the 5k army. since it's cold and wet in england, and you only get a free tour, no free models. and all new releases for the next 12 months, well that can be anything.
So my question is if YOU won 3rd price what would be YOUR dream 5k point army, also apocolypse army is ok, since it's hard to fit 5k in a normal game.
Mine goes as followed
Chaplain in termi armor
Two ten man squads, one with meltagun and a lascannon and the other with plasma gun and plasma cannon
Two ten man scount squads all with sniper rifles and camo cloaks, one with telion
2, 5man squads of termis with TH/SS
1, 10man squad (with chaplain) of LC
3 normal dreadnoughts, 2 with 2 twin link autocannons and 1 with assult cannon and CCW
2 ironclads both with CCWs and heavy flamers on each arm, HKs and assult launchers
1 ten man sterngaurd 2 with combi-melta
1 10man squad (with strike) of assult marines, sarg with 2 lighting claws
3 land raiders, 2 redeemers and 1 crusader (with cronus) redeemers hold 5 man TH/SS termis and the crusader holds the sterngaurd
3 5man devastators, 1 with all lascannons, 1 with all heavy bolters and the other with plasmacannons
3 predators all with lascannons
Roughly 5k points
so share yours

(='.'=) signature to help him gain world domination!
I would pick IG. and do the 3x3 Vendettas, fully mechanized troops, 3 full Leman Russ squadrons, etc.
I WANNA GET STUCK IN WIT DA BOYZ
I know you've posted this in the 40K section, but it's not actually restricted to 40K, is it? I know I could go on the website and check myself but... I'll just assume it isn't, and then go about answering your original question...
I'd really have to think about this. I currently have three armies in various stages of development; Vampire Counts (my main project), Tau (under the couch) and Witch Hunters (which I intend to get to after I deem my Vampire Counts to be finished).
I really like the Vampire Counts, and I think a massive army of them would be quite impressive. There would have to be a zombie dragon or two in there, dozens of knights and grave guard, a couple of coaches, all the awesome looking units...
But I think a 40K army might work better. I'd probably go with Night Lords, as I've had a soft spot for them ever since reading a battle report involving them tearing through some hapless Cadians. So I'd get myself a Night Lords army, I think, probably with a Titan in there if I was allowed.
No idea on an actual list, though!
I don't think you get to choose your list. You just get to say what army you would like then they just send you a bunch of stuff otherwise I could say I want a vampire hero and the rest of the points in zombies! Then they'd end up owing you 1200 zombies = GG games workshop.
Maybe I will go and track down those terms and conditions...
EDIT: From the GW website terms and conditions...
One Warhammer or Warhammer 40,000 Army up to 5000 points. The army must be legal in accordance with the Warhammer or Warhammer 40,000 main rulebook and applicable codex/army book.
So, I'm not sure apocalypse stuff would count, under that definition? I dunno... I never looked in to how that all fitted in.
Ya I'm not 100% sure on the conditions but I think for some tournies where there are army prizes I read that people choose the army and get sent stuff? I've never won so I cant say, hopefully someone on this site (or me!) wins so we can find out!
I would think they'd want to cut costs and points by throwing in a few special characters too if they decided on the list
