and i just cant decide what army to choose but thanks for the help Pierced53

Most rediculous possabily money wasting thing I ever heard from a non-GW employee.Originally Posted by Deadly Nightshade
You dont pick an army for the way it looks. You pick an army based on your play style / how well it will stack up vs. most of your opponents and if you dont have a play style yet then think of what you would liek to be able to do and post it here and we can help you.
Its like choosing to play a Night Goblin army when all your opponenets play VC (3/7 of my regualr opponents do). If you can Cause fear with all units and summon new ones in to within 8'' of your enemies your going to own nightgoblins.High Elves are a bad choice for a new player. They are generally said to have one of the weakest overall army lists and require alot of practice to do well with.i think i will play high elves soon,if i get paid before then, i hope to play in a mega battle at our games place thanks for the advice everyone, you two

Osaria - Please don't attack members on the way they suggest picking an army. Many people choose armies for multitude of reasons - fluff, looks, gameplay, models.. etc There is absolutely no need for you to say that they are wrong because they don't choose them the same way as yourself.
Nothing wrong with choosing an army based on the way it looks.
The whole point (well for me anyway) is to have fun with putting your army together. If it wins some games then that's great but not the most important thing.
For fantasy i'd go with the new wood elves, cos of the nice new models.
For 40k, I don't think you can go far wrong with Space Marines as a first army.
i play mostly to have fun playing and putting the models together and painting but mostly the first one
