    Note to mods: Close my other thread in Armies, please.

    I'd like some advice from all you seasoned CSM players. As I've said in the other thread, I want to start a new army, and I've decided that I would really love to have a go at CSM, since they have fantastic fluff and a wide combat range of abilities.

    But it is this range of possibilities that makes it damn hard to choose. I'd love to field a Khornate army, since I keep hearing of their frenzied troops smashing apart almost any and all comers, but then I hear the same of Black Legion or Iron Warrior armies doing the same but by firepower.

    Which legion offers the best tactical choice?

    Screw the other, weak legions. Go for Death Guard They are a good army and also they can be modified to be either a shooty army, CC army, or a mixture. Also all the Death Guard models have a better toughness, so they can with stand alot of attacks and they are fearless.Also it is easy to paint them and fun to paint them

    But..

    The basic Nurgle squad is very expensive. I am looking for cost efficiency, as well as damn funky.

    I'm not sure if you'd like World Eaters, you don't have a lot of control over the army. Your average CSM squad has 3 attacks on the charge, which is still quite good. With Furious Charge, and by softening the enemy up a little with firepower, they are more than a match for most troops.
    Now come the standard questions: do you like close combat, or do you prefer shooting? Do you want to use Daemons? Does any of the Gods appeal to you more than the others? And also quite important, is there a legion that you like better than the others when if comes to background?

    It would be nice if you were a little more constructive in your replies, ie don&#39;t type the name of a legion, type a reason, otherwise you don&#39;t really have to bother posting in the first place.

    Tis a good start anyway. The point is that he&#39;s looking for reasons as to why he should pick a certain Legion, meaning he needs to know stuff about them, not just that they&#39;re liked by someone.

    I would actually suggest emperors children.
    They are played by too few, they have some great models and they can make a hell of a force.
    With the blastmasters and sonic blasters you got yourself some nasty shooting and they aint shabby in cc either.... And its enough with 6 people in a squad to get a free asp champ (and with that the option of a power weapon
