Im a former Tyranid player who is looking to get back into the game after a fairly long hiatus. Ive decided that Tyranids require to many models (and therfore $$ to play, so im instead looking for something cheaper. Ive come down to either a World Eaters army, or a Necron army but i cant choose between the two. Im guessing that most people on this board would be favoring the Chaos army, so what im looking for are reasons that you think a WE army would be better than a Necron army. Many of the poepl i would possibly be playing against feild necrons, but there are also plenty of normal Space Marines and an Ulthwe Strike Force. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
chaos is cool, good saves and variety, ditto for necrons except on variety, and some and most of the necron units are uber powerful, but necrons are cheesy (though i like them) so people may not like you that much, i would go with chaos anyway, i doubt many other people here will say different unless a necron player stumbles upon this

choose which ever one suits your playing style best.
however i will say World Eaters rule, combat monsters, not entirely lacking in the fire power department(defilers and preds). also you get to shout "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!" at your opponent all the time which is fun.
Victory or Death!

Go with necrons as is a cheap army and u dont realy need lot of units.
And yes Necrons is cheesy army .
I m Tyranid-Necron player and i m sick of this.
Something last i dont find your excuse (for tyranids) "honest".
MEAT IS MURDER
No point in posting anything, everyone said everything already. But... why don't you buy both codexes and make your decision from there, or simply you can pick a cool looking army and go from there. Thats how i got started!

Hmm being a necron player and an iron warriors player, i would have to go with necrons myself, they just look kick ass. there not cheesy though, its either that you don't know how to fight necrons or just suck. Necrons also are very very limited in variety though. as with chaos, you have variety leaking out of the walls. it comes down to ONE THING, which one do you like better.
Depends on what you want, slow, tough as nails, necrons with there nice powerful guns, or the blood crazed cc Khorneies. Another thing you might want to worry about is some people complain how Khorne armys 'play themselves' due to their special rules. So that might be something you would look into, but as its already been said, get both codexes and make your decsion from the models, fluff, and army lists.
Definitely get both codexes, just so you can see the massive stretch between Khorne's Glory and The Necrons'. It does depend on your personality but there are quite some differences between Khorne and Necron, so the decision should be easy once you start looking closer.
Blood for the Blood God!
Better yet, don't buy both, just read them at the store.
and think yourself lucky if your store has proper chairs, my one has shitty cushioned stools!
