hi people firstly im sorry if theis tread is in the wrong place i didn't know were else to post it.
Now to the thing im posting about i currently colect witch hunters but want to changer my army i either want to start a chaos marines , tyranids , tau or necrons could some people tell me some good points about these armies and some bad points as im not to sure which one i want to start colecting. also could people tell me what i should buy to start my new army off as im not at all sure what to buy for what army. thanks poeple.
maybe... you can use your Sisters of battle troops for chaos troops, just make them a little more demonic
Very generally heres the ups and downs in those armies:
Ups: cc freaks (can also be very shooty but thats not too common), can field up to 8 montrous creatures, 'stealers...need i say more?, a horde army that are pretty good in cc, hormogaunts and gargoyles are very very fast.
downs: average shooting, poor armour, montrous creatures are slow (compared to the rest of the army)
Ups: daemons, cool fluff, variety of marks (nurgle/tzeentch etc), each mark with very different playing styles, converters dream, daemon prince and greater daemons and defilers, fun to use dreadnaught
Downs: depending on the mark chosen - elites are very expensive, the daemons suffer instability
Ups: Almost the best shooting army ever (baring the IW which IMO is heaps better), jump packs allow you to hit others but may receive no return fire, best basic rifle in the game, very mobile with the devilfish, can take out horde armies very easily with hammerhead and mass pulse rifle fire, sniper drones are a must IMO
Downs: Very very horrible in cc (but the kroot are pretty good now though)
ups: good in shooting, basic guns glace any vehicle, well be back rolls, very good armour, monotlith, ctans, wraiths, cool wargear (like the 'cloak' thing)
downs: expensive troops, lose whole game to phase out when 25% of ur necron army remains, average in cc (other than wraiths and flayyed ones), very very vunerable to powerfists.

i would reccomend nids. very fun and very easy to paint. there MC look AWESOME!! and the whole army is almost plastic.
personally i would go chaos spacemarine because of the simple fact daemons are so frikken cool
thanks to everyone that posted. you have all been a great help thanks again
