I know this has been asked a ton of times with 40k armies, but I couldn't find one for fantasy.
Who are the space marines of fantasy warhammer? Which army is the most prolific? Will my spelling every get better?
Victory is achieved through mettle.
Glory is acheived through metal.
I really never noticed any smurfs of the WHFB world. That's one thing I love about it.
Though the power creeps do worry me a little.
I dont think there is an army played as much as the space marines in fantasy, atleast not what i've seen. There are a few more 'popular' armies in my area such as: Wood Elves, Vampire Counts and when the Dark Elves came out they saw play from some vets in the area, but everything in WHFB seems to get its fair showing and not a singular predominant army.
There are some underplayed armies like Dwarfs, Beasts of Chaos and Tomb Kings but I can't think of any overplayed ones on par with that of SMurfs in 40k.
EDIT: Though this would of course vary depending on your local area.

There aren't any armies used to the extent that the SMurfs are used, but I have seen Empire and Dark Elves used quite a bit. I must be honest though, I am more of a 40k player, so I don't see as many WHFB games as others.
I see Dark Elves and Tomb Kings quite a bit around here.
my area is dominated by elves (high,dark and wood) and VC but other than that we are quite ballanced...

If someone helps you REP them...
There is no space marines/everyone else dichotomy like there is in 40k. While Empire, Bretonnians and Warriors of Chaos are all technically human (particular the latter) they aren't really that alike.
I think Chaos, Dwarfs and Empire have usually been slightly ahead, but even then not by much. While Chaos has often been regarded as the favoured child of Warhammer, there never has been an army that is pretty damn good at everything (Empire could be considered closest, but they're usually average at everything).
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
In my area, its Wood Elves, Dwarves, Empire and Orcs & Goblins that are the most played, but, as everyone else said, not to the extent of marines.
