Ive been out of the 40K loop for a while and have just lately wanted to get back into it. My time was was spent playing Warhammer fantisy since most the people at out local game store play it. Im looking at starting 2 armies right now, on the one hand I like the new DA codex. They have some cool new models, there transports are a little cheaper, and SM tend to be an all around diverse army. On the other hand im wanting to start a WH army because for one i like the idea of nuns with guns, mass melta and flamer armies sound nice, and also the owner of the game store dosnt want to buy any sisters of battle stuff. He's had his for the last 5+years and i've heard him tell people he dosnt want to see anyone else copying him. So part of me wants to start one just to spite him.
I know going to the WH forum you all are into them but I would like to hear what you like about them so I can decide if I want to start making orders. :yes:
for me me it's 75% fluff, the army is just so fanatical and selfrighteous.
25% is the models, the models are very nice... very catholic... very expensive tho, which is why I'll never collect a large army...
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
I play for the same basic reasons as HeZu except that I really love the way the models look and really love the Inquisition.
Legion Of Everblight: Abyslonia
Protectorate of Menoth: Grand Exemplar Kreoss
I think Montford 981 might have said it ver consisely:

I play WH because I like the feel of the Sisters as a Holy Order. 40K universe takes that fanaticism and passion to a twisted version of the basis. I like having an army that's going after Heresy. reminds me very much of the Holy Orders that went to the Albigensian Crusade to root out Heresy in 1229AD. I actually chose my army color scheme to reflect the Dominicans of the time.
St Dominic said: "Zeal must be met by zeal, humility by humility, false sanctity by real sanctity, preaching falsehood by preaching truth."
someday, I'm gonna paint that on my Rhinos. maybe only parts of it. Translate each part of it to latin, and put that as slogans on the rhinos.
I also picked the army because it's a tricky army to play. I had several people tell me the army was unplayable, and explain that is who not a lot of people play it. I really wanted to prove them wrong. I may not win 90% of the time, but I think that's part of why I like WH. It's not an easy win. If I won all the time, I'd get bored with them as an army.
We've also got some interesting option to have to work with. Once you figure out how to use the options we're given, WH can be a frightening force to see across the table from you, or to be paired up against in a campaign.
Err, excuse me.
As a painter rather than a player, I like almost all the forces equally. I really like the Sisters of Battle models, especially the newer stuff.
And girls with guns is always fun....
- Watch this space.
Look in the thread "why did you choose witch hunters?" that pretty much covers it.
For me it was awesome fluff and a good army list. (the models I didn't really notice before I bought them but they are realy wounderfull.
Cool looking basic infantry for me. Their power armour is a lot more detailed than most other infantry of other races, plus it's power armour without being a silly marine or necron
Because an entire army of intolerant, homicidal female pyromaniacs has got to be fun!
I also like the models (except for the way they made the Exorcist) and the fluff and storylines behind the Sororitas.
If GW woulod only permit the Sisters to carry plasma guns
"The sword that takes life gives life."
Faith. I saw the 2nd ed Acts of Faith and had to have them.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
