I am an avid SM player but as my army reaches completion I am already looking forward. I am wondering what is another army that is very well balanced and can be played a number of different ways(assualt or shooty or both) and not just one way to play it(like the shoot heavy tau). anyone have any suggestions???
It looks like you're looking for a good balanced army, with shooting and assault abilities. I'll just list some of the armies that may suit you:
Chaos Space Marines
All the above armies have decent shooting and close combat capability. You might also want to consider IG, but they don't have much close combat units.
Read through the forums, search google, check out some battles and gw, and read through the articles until you choose an army that you feel is good for you!
Eldar have a good range of different units, weapons and wargear. They are highly configurable (shooty vs assault) and have many specialist varient armies to expand into. They also play very differently from marines.
Chaos are probably even more configurable that Eldar but are much more tactically similar to regular marines.
Necrons are biased towards shooting and Tyranids are viased towards CC. Dark Eldar kind of hit that middle ground (and I love them) but thier unit and weapon choices are very limited.
War Record Since Sept 2005
Old Codex 48-20-9 Dark Eldar
New Codex 1-0-0 Dark Eldar
Thank you for your insite. It will help me make a better decision.
If you're looking for an army with a lot of options, then I would recommend the Tyranids. They can actually do anything.
Eldar would also make a good choise.
And if you like elite guy, you also could consider the Daemon Hunters (Also really cool models, so if you can paint well, go for this one). Plus, you can integrate it with your Space Marine army
I would definately go with nids, they are expandable and you get huge masses of them what can be better?:yes:
