I am thinking of starting an imperial army, at first I was debating whether of not to go Daemonhunters or Witch Hunters and induct space marines or IG, then I decided maybe I should go IG or Space Marines and then I could have allies of Daemon and Witch Hunters.
So now I'm trying to decide between the two (IG or Space Marines). I've done alot of research into IG and I know people who play them. I myself only have a necron army so I'm pretty new when it comes to the whole customization thing and I really want a space marine players opinion.
If anyone could help me pick one of the two that'd be great, I'm really looking for some thing cheap (money wise) so that usually means something expensive (points wise) and I'm fine with that. Any help is great, thanks.
IG is lotsa people for little cost, almost like orcs
space marines are elites, meaning you've got not alot of models,
my 1k army consists of 34 models, 8 different boxes
MEAT IS MURDER, And murder tastes pretty good! :D
With IG you have masses of disposible troops to field and/or some of the best vechicles available.
Space Marines give you a variety of elite units for you to field.
Space Marines are the cheaper of the two especially with the battle for black reach box out and share many similarities with your necrons.
Warhammer 40k: Blood Angels, Imperial Guard, Grey Knights, Space Lizards (wolves), Kroot, Witch Hunters, Dark Eldar
Warhammer: Lizardmen, Empire, Vampire Counts, Brettonians, High Elves, Skaven
I like the whole mass of troops idea, good change from necrons.
Also, I do believe i'm pretty set on the elites with some grey knight terminators and the Witch Hunter options. But I definetly need more options from the core army so its still pretty close.
In terms of Heavy Support which one has the best options and/or are more effective?
Marine vehicles are support for troops and rarely work as an out-right replacement like IG.
Our vehicles are flexible, capable of fulfilling several roles each game where IG seem to be more static in their use.
Perhaps you should go to your local GW store or game club and watch the differences between IG and SM games, as that would give you a good idea into whats what =)
