im just curious to see what every thinks is the best army at what. My four topics are
1. Best Shooty Army
2. Best CC Army
3. Best "Overwhelm them with numbers" army
4. Best overall Army (not too great at any one thing, but pretty decent at everything)
Give which army, and a quick reason why.
I'll save my votes until later so as not to create any bias
1-tau cos there basic guns rip everything in half
2-gaos oh i mean chaos khorne more specificly cos they just rape everything
3-nids cos there just so many attacks wen they assult ya
4-necrons cos they simply do everything
<span style='color:red'>-=Read the sigrules=-</span>
Doesnt that make nids the best Cc army in your opinion?3-nids cos there just so many attacks wen they assult ya
Although i have to admit khorne are nasty.
Shootie Army from Hell -
Best CC Army -
Best Overwhealm them with Numbers Army -
Best Overall -
Guard (I know this sounds wierd, but trust me.)

Shooty: Imperial Guard. Not Tau, no Battle Cannons.
Stabby: Orks. Eat choppa!
Numbers: Orks again. Boyz everywhere.
Well rounded: Dark Eldar. Good profiles and many options.
alright, now for my vote
1.shooty-Tau. it was tie between them and guard, but at least with the Tau, they can take a few shots before falling over
2.CC-im a little bias, but i'd have to say dark eldar. They have THE most whicked HQ in the game when it comes to CC, and wyches can make mince meat out of even the geanstealers
4.overall-Vanilla Space marines, they just got a solution to every problem
Well for the blast you from a distance I'm gonna have to say: Space Marines
Although not necessarily known for guns, imagine 3 Dev squads in Razorbacks
while 9 landspeeders fly around and hose you to the ground, not to mention dozens of bolters.
Honorable Mention(s): Imperial Guard...pretty self explanatory...30 lascannons does a pretty mean trick. Or the whole ordnance bit....
Dark Eldar I'm gonna put up next, cause having 100 dudes in front of your easily relocating devastator squads with wings and lascannons sure makes you feel good.
For the rip your throat out and have fun while we're doing it rcs, with no questions about it. the question asked was what was the best, not who gets there to use it. Anyone playing orcs knows if those mobs of 30 boys(usually 4 or 5) gets up there, they're gonna see literally buckets of dice coming at them.
Close Honorable Mention: Khorne. The ability to now hide basically a Lesser-Greater demon in the middle of a squad, even more dangerous than a nob, along with the Blood thirster popping out of space with some Bloodletters...
When all you can see from here to the horizon you're seeing: Nids.
Honorable Mention: Orcs or Imperial Guard. I saw an Imperial guard player with literally hundreds of dudes...quite a daunting sight, and they all rushed...
If there was a do-it-yourself-any-day type of army, it'd be: Vanilla Marines.
Honorable Mention: Good Ol' Chaos Space marines or Imperial Guard.
best shooty: Mech. Guard can utterly ravage a tau army, as long as you have strong deep striking units (i.e. last chancers w/ demo packs, melta guns, and plasma guns, storm troopers, etc...) but those are fairly common combos.
Best CC: Nids (Stupid Nids took out 2 guardsmen squads without any retaliation) (stupid hive tyrant blasting the crap out of my demolisher)
Overwhelming buggers: Nids
Best over all: Vanilla Marines, they're...so......vanilla?
2:orks, for reasons stated above
3:Goff orks, with a close 2end from nids
4:any kind of SM army.

3.Ig or orks depending on your role
4. Marines but they aree good at all the only problem is price.
