    Another newb needing help with choosing an army

    I was introduced to warhammer about 2 weeks back and ive been playing with the battle of macragge set recently. So far I really like the game but i'm really not sure which army to choose. I use both space marines and tyranids but the races dont really have the feel i want. so ive come here in hopes of help...

    a few points i would like to state

    how they look doesnt really effect much of my decision

    first of all i want an army that can practically win from shooting everything

    second i want one with decent armor saves... being i am a very unlucky peson when it comes to dice

    close combat would be good but i dont really need it

    another thing is i have alot of time on my hands so painting and assembling is not a problem, so if it is a swarming army im okay

    i want a fast army overall

    i love having big things in my army... not just one or two but practically a squad of them

    with that in mind, any thoughts? almost every comment would be appreciated

    thx!

    Heh well TAU cover some of the points: Very shooty, fast (devilfish and the like), Not the best in close combat (but kroot manage that well enough), Tau models are really cool (come on everyone loves MECH's right?) , The tank (hammerhead) is pretty big but if you go to forgeworld they got some huge models. TAU fluff is pretty hippyish but IMO cool

    Seems to me that Tyranids cover a lot of those points. Fast overall army, swarming, big things, close combat, shooty carnifexes to satisfy the shooting part.

    Perhaps someone else could elaborate, my tyranid knowledge is very scarce.

    sounds like you want Tau, and the stealth suits are quite awesome, as well as all other units with tau jetpacks. They can move, fire, then move again in the assault phase. IMO they are the most shooty army in the game. The only problem is that a retarted monkey can beat up the fire warriors in assault

    thx for the comments guys, and so far im feeling the Tau. they look pretty awesome and seem to have the shooty "est" army. Anymore comments would be appreciated, but i'm leaning towards the tau right now.

    Tau

    Tau would probally suit you best as they cover most of the things that you said you wanted in an army.

    Go for it!! :yes:
