    What is the most brutal Army for 40k? I am trying to decide on who to start and want an army that is simply powerful. (Chaos, Tyranids, what do you think) But i want to focus on medium to close range combat (mainly close range comabt).
    Who kicks @$$ in that area?


    Thanks,
    Jemac

    I suggest the following.

    World Eaters
    Dark Eldar Wych Cult
    Blood Angels
    Space Wolves 13th Co.
    Biel-Tan w/lots of CC-oriented Aspects
    Tyranids

    Nids are the shizzle for CC. No-One can beat a genestealer in cc.

    Actually, Wyches will tear through Genestealers at equal points (this can easily be proven using mathematics), but I won't elaborate as everyone will get p*ssed at me again for trying to "promote Dark Eldar without proper reasoning" as if mathematics and statistics weren't enough. . . . . and meaningless, illogical statements were.

    'nids are simply the best choice.Most Black Templars are the best at cc among the marinesIf you're not too good with tactics and just want an army you can smash into the enemies line without thinking about it maybe you should try them,or a lot of orks.Dark eldar are good,but you have to know what you're doing.If you don't put some though into your attack you get a handful of dead elves.

    And they pay a hefty price for that power. They absolutely SUCK against shooting.
    And About 'brutal' armies, im suprised noone has talked about Slannesh-Undivided and the emperors children.
    -1 initiative is brutal in combat. Also, they have lots of other combat stuff, such as daemonettes who wound everything on a 6 with their daemonic talons.
    Now the big one: The slanneshi daemon prince. This guy, seriously with the point cost limit, can have
    str 10
    which strikes at intitiative 7. Not even a Khorne daemon prince can beat that amount brutallity.

    I would say 'nids beause:

    There arent enough nidders out there.
    They rule in cc as a basic army.
    Any Leman Russ crew will pap their pants when a screamer-killer (fex) gets within 3'.
    EVERYONE I KNOW PLAYS SM OR CHAOS grrrrr.

    Wych Cult and Biel-Tan is no good for newbies, other than that I agree with you.
    You forgot to mention Orks, the Goff orks and Speed Freeks are avesome CC armies, and fun to paint and convert. Goffs get to have lots of Skarboyz, and Speed Freeks can 'rhino rush' with their entire army, now that's scary, fifty orks with five Nobz assaulting in turn one!
