I want a new army. Obviously you have heard this before. Though I have had thought of certain ones I thought back and decided no.
I love shooting though assaulting is one of my favorite things. Also to add in I am poor.
Things I don't want to play are
Daemons-Friend is starting them so it would get boring.
Space maries and any varient- I play Black Templar right now.
Chaos-Plague marines away
I like urban and cathedral things.
Remember I am 40k.
You're poort and you love to shoot:
Necrons -priced like marines, shoot like marines, die like marines, get up like stubborn mules
Tau- very nice shooting, and a choice of cheap expendables and also some shiney pricey toys
Elite Gaurd (using doctrines or tons of expensive options like fully-loaded tanks) -can get expensive depending on how you work it, but a respectable gaurd army using doctrines can come in quite cheap (please avert your eyes from a $550 Grenadiers army I would like to start)
None of these armies have much in the way of assault capability, except for some of the more CC oriented 'Cron units like Flayed Ones, Pariahs, or Wraiths.
You like to assault and you're poor: unfortunately that's Chaos, and Marines.
Are tau a good GT army?
Orks can be an affordable stompy army if you're willing to paint the same couple of model poses from Assault on Black Reach over and over and over and over....
Orks and Chaos Marines are currently considered the top GT armies in most circles. Tau are still trying to find their footing after the skimmer nerfage of 5E. Suit armies haven't changed much, except to be hosed by the new scoring unit rules just like anybody else using all their elite slots.
Well from seeing orcs on the table against me quite a few times now since 5th ed... I would say that they are probably the most powerful army going at the moment... **** Thraka!
However really for the money... you would prolly be best off to go ahead and play a shooty chaos army... as they can be upgraded out the ass, you can pull off 1500pts for very cheap... and then when you get more resources you can easily add to them.
So how are orks and what do you think I should theme them as in your opinion?
Well, if I were to theme orcs... I would theme them as just a normal orc mob... Take a wierd boy with a large group of boys, and then take a warboss and get some nobs, (make sure you go ahead and take shoota boys) and then I would pickl up some tank bustas, and arm them all with rockets, then get a couple killa Kans, and gretchin are nice as well... would give you a nice well rounded army, however really the best thing to do with orcs from what i have seen is take two squads of def koptas one with powerfists and then take like 8 mega nobs and thraka, and 30 gretchin and about 15 boys. get a couple trucks and your army will hit the opponents line like a Mack Truck hitting a deer....
as for the poor thing, E-bay is your friend... as I am sure that you remember when buying your marines nothing is really cheap... But really orcs are just a lot of fun and can be really easy to paint... honestly I would just say to really build an army out of the HQ a couple troops and then get the models that you like (as in how they look and you like what they do)
Because it army doesn't have to come together immediatley, just take a good look at your options and then run with it and take you time and be patient, the best advice that i can give is to make sure that as you buy something you paint it...
