Ok. I re-done the poll.
Please vote for your fav army based on:
3.Any other cool stuff you can think on
1.choose an army just cos you play it
2.dont choose an army just for its rules
This is not a who is the best army poll. Its jus tone to see who's peoples fev. legion out of the nine.
Much better poll- to be sure. Still, it's not an easy question.
Conversion potential: D.G.
Conversion potential: I must say...I'm partial to oozy, blobby intestines. There's a reason why alot of professional miniature painters elect to use D.G. as their modeling for Chaos- the conversion themes are easy to do & look amzaing on the models. D.G. appeals to both humorous conversions and the sickly grotesque ones as well.
Fluff: Personally, chaos has some of the richest fluff in 40k, which makes this consideration particularily difficult. In the end T.S. did it for me, on the grounds that they dabbled in sorcery (which I softly relate to knowledge), but eventually it came back to haunt them. I always considered the Thousand Sons to being some of the more intelligent marines, which, or therefore because of their curiosity for knowledge, they are now mindless- very ironic.

World Eaters for me.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)
Despite being an avid Khorne player, I love the death guard models, plague marines look sooooo cool.
As for conversion possibilities, all of chaos togather takes the cake there. Moreso then any other army short of orks, you can just literally go nutso with chaos. Guard come close, but Chaos you can literally take a model and glue 8 extra arms on him and it's something.
For play style I like Khorne the most. Which is probably why I bought a world eaters army....
Fluff: Gotta go with World Eaters. Khorne is just such a cool god, I mean, he sits on a throne of skulls for christ's sake. And any legion champion who's claim to fame is running amok burning his troops earns my respect. And laughter. mostly respect though.

My Annihilation Angels use NL rules, but as a long time player and fluff lover, I have to vote for WE. Just because they are the baddest mothers in the galaxy, and they do it with no tricks, no sorcery, virtually no tactics, just oldfashion combat prowess. Plus, they worship the most powerful god out there, Khorne. However, I am a firm believer in the older fluff, that worshippers of khorne do so out of lover for battle, but also for honour and pride. That's what initially hooked Angron to Khorne, and overcoming the sheer-bloodletting is what a real WE, one that stays true to Angron, is all about.
Big shock for me: Iron Warriors
I love the fluff for them, and storm of iron solidified my choice and army composition. Even though a lot of people consider them cheesy, i enjoy playing my counter assault army. Having the ability to field lots of obliterators fits perfectly as its mainly a siege army. I also feel that having a converted Warsmith is a accomplishment for most IW players.
I do wish i could field a griffon though, it seems more of the siege mentality then the basilisk in my opinion, and i feel a griffon is harder to maximize high str ordinance then a griffon that is lower str but adds to armor pentration to buildings.
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
I agree. While I'm not a big fan of people reposting threads after I have closed them, this is sufficiently different and much more specific.Originally Posted by boydgarrett
I myself voted for the Night Lords. While I don't play them, I absolutely love their fluff, and I do like their models. Many people don't like the Dragon Wings, but I rather like them.
Thanks all for voting, just thought it would be interesting to see which armies were most poular without their rules, so far it is World Eaters Sorry for reposting but i thought if a changed the criteria it would be OK
My vote are split between Emperors Children and Night Lords.
I love the way EC are fighting for pleasure and their models is probably really fun to convert.
The NL is awsome becuase they focus on terror tactics. It is always fun to rip the heart out of the enemy morale before you end their pathetic lives :w00t:
In the end, my vote goes to the NL.
Thousand Sons got my vote. They were one of the few Legions who did anything constructive, meaning stuff other than 'conquer the universe in the Emperor's name'. Their pursuit of knowledge, ostracism for being different, creating a unique civilization and then being sentenced to annihilation for doing the right thing...wow. It even beats Night Haunter's death for tragedy. (And I am starting Night Lords.)
