    Almost every day I see a new thread saying " I wanna start a new army help me pick one". Like WE know what army somebody might like. And most of the time it seems that they've already half made a choice, and are just looking for somebody to say "Go ahead, you'll win EVERY game if you go with army X!". rarely if ever does the post state what the person is looking for in their new army, and when they do it's really vague like "Non human" or "really shooty, but not Tau" or something else to that effect. Most of the time these posts recieve 3-5 replies.

    Really if you can't decide with all the info ALREADY posted here and elsewhere, anything we say isn't going to help you.... fer Chrissakes obtain some codexes and play people! Proxies are plentiful and easy to come by!

    I guess what I'm saying is:

    These posts just seem to be popularity polls, as all the replies yer gonna get are who prefers what army.

    and i am just wondering what is the point of this post if not to get yourself some post count.

    if you have a problem with people posting asking which army people think would be good for them then tell me.

    alot of people new to the game need guidance and in these posts they get told what are good and bad about each post. or would you rather they posted nce in each ary forum asking what is good and bad about each army.

    If this thread stops one person from posting a "which army should I choose" thread, than this thread DOES have purpose. I'm getting pretty annoyed by them.

    I think his post has a meaning: to stop thread-spamming.
    The threads with "what army should i get" usually doesnt conatin _any_ info on what kind of army the person wants (shooty, hth etc) and _no_ info on fluff preferences. I do agree with LordHat.

    I cant believe people dont know what army to choose caus its so simple:
    Choose the one that appeals to you.
    Choose the one you find cool or good-looking.
    Choose the one that has fluff that feels cool.

    The armies are meant to be balanced so theres no reason trying to find the "best" army.

    Exactly. Here's how I picked my armies.


    1) Chaos- I orginally wanted Marines, but my friend wanted to play SM, so I went on the GW website, found chaos marines, thought they were cooler, started chaos.
    2) Tau- Thought shooting units with giant guns was badass. Started tau.

    If I really wanted to get my post count up, then I would post in single sentences, and reply to EVERY post. Besides, what point is there to a High post count? Do I get a cash prize for it? How about a T-shirt? Didn't think so. Also I said nothing about the NEW players. If yer looking for a NEW army, yer not a new player, unless you've collected 500 points, then decided you didn't like the army. Then again this is very rare, as most people won't know the army well enough to say till they own at least 1,000 points worth. After I bought 1,000 points of Necrons I wasn't too keen on switching armies..... that's quite a bit O' cash I had invested already.

    All I'm saying is that if you need help deciding what army to collect next, then maybe you don't need to collect a new army.

    Interesting point. I too get a little agitated with all those posts, as the person will always pick what he likes best anyway. And every reply is standard, first you get some stuff like "army X r0xx0rz!!", then a more intelligent person comes along and asks for the standard questions. Why people can't figure this out on their own is a mystery to me.

    Yes, it does end up as a popularity contest, at first I tried to give my advice on those posts, but after geting swamped by them, I stopped.
