    Chaos or the Emperor!

    I have been collecting 40k for a short time now and have a decent sized force of around 1250pts of Chaos Marines and Loyalists. Now I'm wondering whether to collect Space Marines or the Chaos counterparts. I like both types of models equally and in both armies there are models that jump out at me.

    How should I choose an army? I'm thinking about the Word Bearers or Thousand Sons, or Blood Angels.

    Armies: (Chaos) Space Marines [1250pts], O&G [2250 pts], OK [1000pts]

    Why not do both?

    I'd start with CSM, just because the new BA codex won't be out for quite sometime and I really don't like the current pamphlet

    yeah, its up to you. my answer would be a little biased as i play SM's. i'd take realitycheque's advise and start a chaos army while waiting for the BA codex.

    As for the chaos army, i love the thousand sons fluff and look.

    well they recently re-vamped the BA codex and you can print the new 5th edition version and use that its a free codex so it cant hurt.

    id sugest you just take a look at the codex and decide wether you want masive roting bloodthirsty deamons or crazed (also bloodthirsty) marines but to be honest i dont sea why you couldnt just use both, im shure in a friendly game someone wouldnt mind you proxy'ing one for the other to help you decide wich you prefer in larger point games.

    i am a SM player so will obviously say i prefer them although with space marines there is considerably less variety than i think chaos provides because marines do what there supose to do and are good all rounders, wheras there is alot more specialisation eg deamons defilers and plage marines than maybe you will find in sm codex's but cosidering your thinking blood angels you may not find the space marines as unspecialised as i have described, remembering im over compensationg to try and make my post un biased

    well good luck from me (i will be geting CSM at some point but for now DH and SM are enugh for me and my wallet)

    hope you enjoy witchever you decide upon or both for that mater

    Realitycheque has the right idea. Though if you are wanting to collect BA, then perhaps go for a more shooty Chaos army? (I'm not sure if Word Bearers or Thousand Sons are shooty) That way you get the best of both worlds

    It's also bloody awful. A mere pamphlet.
