Hello. Ive found a large community of GW gamers who play Warhammer 40k, fantasy and lotr. Im considering starting fantasy right now and am finding out what force is best for me and if any are.
What Im looking for in a force is it to be competetive, it to be aggressive and attack oriented, and it to be cool, meaning I like the theme. I do have a big history of loseing in mini games I play, Im not longer the young get at the LGS who is expected to lose but Im the average age of the players around here and with the experiance I have I should be expected to win. Usally my armies are entirely based of stuff I like that is not effective or works together in any way, that needs to change. So I need a strong starting faction or whatever you call it in WarHammer.
Brets appeal to me becasue I like cavalry alot, and see it as a powerful offensive tool. I also really like the theme of a feudalistic medival army. Yet is it offensive? In games that Im good at I find myself ALWAYS attacking or ALWAYS harrasing the enemy in some way. I always end up playing like that in any game that Im good at, so I need tools to help me game to this style. When asked to hold something in a game Im good at, all end up just attacking whatever I need to hold it from asap.
I also want a quality over quantity army. Im playing another game as Russians, who are very very expensive and are complete quantity over quality.
Im also considering Hordes of Chaos, how do they compare to the Brets and how do they compare vs what I want out of my faction?
How much does it cost for modelling supplies, books, and a Bret army cost all together in USD? I want to know how expensive this hobby is.
Please help me if you can.

Chaos is probably similar to 40k. You've got your 4 branches of demon and the same theme with each of them. They are hard hitters of course but are as much of a toss up as anybody. When they tend to always do well but when they do bad its very very bad sorta thing. Up to you though, and brets are offensive but not really nearly in the same way you might consider dark elves to be. Their actual units are offensive, i.e., Witch Elves where as brets are just designed so as a whole. Knights are actually either going to break a unit or have to rely on a good CR and armor to win out. Just some things to consider.

The Bretonnians are probably the easiest starting army. Not only are they pretty one-dimensional tactically, but I think they are a bit more affordable since you don't have to buy a lot of infantry (which saves you about half IIRC).
They are incredibly agressive. All you do is point them at the enemy units and charge. The problem is, an experience opponent can take advantage of your army's one-dimensional nature and exploit it. So be warned that if you plan on playing veterans, they're probably going to slaughter you (though this could be said about any army really).
But against relatively new players, Bretonnia is totally easymode. Go for it!
Just to update you all. I choose Hordes of Chaos. In the past I would usally go with something like Bretonnia, it seems so mild and less interesting, it doesnt offer anything new crazy. Chaos offers that. Chaos is also as aggressive with the only range being Magic and you have to point your army at something and let it all lose. Also there is another Bretonnian player and out of thre 5 or 6 players only one did play something evil themed. Everyone else was dwards, elves of some sorts or men like Bretonnians. Thanks for the info on Bretonnia too.
See you on the battlefield brave Bretonnians.
