I am a long time fantasy player and I would like to get back into 40k. I have no idea where to start buying units and what is a must have, what are bust, ect... If you guys could give me like 6 or 7 units or characters that I should pick up that would be extremely helpful.
Heheh, honestly it depends on your play style and what you like. GK have a lot of options. Heck you can build a very, very competitve army (actually more competitve than Grey Knights) and not take a single grey knight (Coteaz plus henchmen).
What honestly interests you? Throw some stuff out and we can go from there.
honestly, whatever can get me playing the quickest without buying three $65 tanks. like I said, what can give me the best bang for my buck both point wise and table top effectiveness. Although I would say I enjoy being agressive and I really like the terminator models and that awesome mech warrior type thing.
Henchmen lists will take the longest as the models are fairly cheap so you will require more of them.
Crowewing, basically when you want a little more of an elite feel to youre standard power armour troops. Purifiers give you a little more bang for a little more buck. A horde armies worst Knightmare thanks to their cleansing flame.
Greywing consists of pretty much standard codex, no special characters making elite choices troop choices.
Thanks for the advice! So if I had to pick like 6 or 7 units with a budget around 300 then would you suggest something like draigo, librarian, 3 squads of termi/paladins, and like Dreadknight and dreadnaught? Also I see everyone running twin linked autocannons on dreadnaughts but where do you all get your autocannons?
Any local IG player is probably a good bet for autocannons, else ebay. Not sure how cheap they are though, seeing as everyone runs them these days. Be sure to pick up psyammo for your rifledreads to give them that lovely str 8
Forgeworld also sell the weapons for the dread that you will need.
Your your gonna field dreads then you need at least 3 of them with 2x twin linked autocannons (bit like vindicators for SM - work better in pairs or more as one will always die early!)
Tau: 6K - W17-D3-L4, Orks: 4K - W9-D0-L2, SM: 7K - W7-D3-L4,CSM: 4K W5-D1-L1, Nids: 3.2K W3-D0-L2
Apoc games (mixture of armies used): W5-D0-L1
ive used the turrets from aegis defence lines for mine, works well and isnt very expensive, gives you some scenery too.
Thanks for all the advice guys. I got a great deal and picked up 20 terminators/paladins, draigo, librarian, and three dreadknights for $200 So know I just need to start grabbing some normal strike squads, razorbacks, and a storm raven or two. Anyone willing to help me out making a list with these current units because I don't have any idea.
