    What army style do you think is the best?

    1. A large army, consisting of tactical squads and cheap units - the numerous!
    2. A small army of expensive units like termies, characters and devastators - the hard hitting!
    3. A flexible army, with lots of vehicles and bikes - the movable!
    4. A mixture of all, being a standard, mainstream army (like myself )

    I personally like option 4, but in some cases I'd prefer to field option one. I know that may sound weird, but there is nothing better, in my mind, than seeing 70 or marines in a 1500 point battle face the onslaught of something like a tyranid horde or another swarm army. I just like large, epic battles anyway, so I'd prefer to have option 4 with a large points battle

    Church: "And?"
    Griff: "And that I'm a girl..."
    Church: "What else?"
    Griff: "And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys."

    Number 1 all the way for me. My favourite army list formula has been named 'The Walking Power Armour Death!'. It's worrying for opponents to see 60+ Black Templars marching towards them.

    I&#39;ve found that option 4 produces the most consistant victories given any random scenario. But the wins are not usually by a large margin compared to a scenario specific army list (ie Breakthrough with bikes and tanks, etc).

    2 or 3 for me, I like to keep my army mobile (assault squads bikes etc.) jus without vehicles witha AV (too much of a liability) but i can&#39;t resist those fragile monsters in cc, i&#39;m thinkin ravenguard commandsquad decked out with lightning clwas and jump pack, or loadsa termies and veteran squads and devestators who can forget them?

    Using the numerous alternative is really good. It&#39;s hard not to take expensive units, but using some fast units to add mobility is usually a good call. So I guess it ends up in a mixture after all... <_<

    Why do people even think there is a panecea?

    It depends on how you put together your army, what you are facing, what the terrain is, how your dice rolling goes, and weather you and/or your opponent put their lucky pants on in the morning as to which is best on any given day.

    Personnaly, asside from my Space Wolves and Blood angels, which my kids appear to have appropriated, I use a vanilla army, pretty much 1) and death wing which has to be 2) but more so. Neither is better than the other overall, they both have unque advantages and dissadvantages
    Everything you have been told is a lie!
