    I need an idea

    Hey everyone, its been over a year since ive last been on these forums and with summer vacation ramping up and with a well paying job, i'm thinking its time for me to blow the dust off my paints, and armies.

    Ive made up my mind that I want to start working on a new army but with the hobby being as expensive as it is, ive decided to be careful and I am putting a lot of forethought and care into this.

    I have a few requirements for what I would like this army to be, but I would love some recommendations and or new ideas that I can mull over.

    Requirements:
    Not terribly expensive (In the grand scheme of things)
    The option to be conversion heavy and friendly
    Unique
    Infantry focused and excelling in cities and jungles
    1000 point personal cap for this army to total to. IE, i dont want to make a huge army and thus would rather put alot of effort into each model.

    Now ive considered a few types of armies. Some from direct inspiration from this site.
    1. Grots (but to expensive to make a good army)
    2. Adeptus Arbites
    3. Genestealer Cult
    4. The Fallen (Dark Angels)

    Please, share some ideas or experiences with the above army types.

    Thanks,
    Viper

    Conversion friendly you say?

    It may have already been done before, but what about an army of Spartan Space Marines? in 1000pts you'd be able to fit a SM Captain/ Librarian/ Chaplin and 5 10 man tactical squads.

    It's been done millions of times...

    Uh oh...


    I would suggest thinking up your own army, you'll feel its your army, not a copy of someone else's or from someone else's idea.

    Well no matter what I would certainly add my own twist and viewpoint to any idea I end up liking. I'm just having difficulty thinking of something im 100% happy with. Which is why I'm asking for ideas so I can get a second design angle.

    Just a few threads that I've seen with similar intentions:
    This (Death Guard WIP)

    This (Undead Imperial Guard / Legion of the Damned / WH Adversaries Force)

    And this

    Hope that helps with some ideas!
