Do fantasy instead!
Well, I'm sure you are all tired of these kinds of questions, but I hope you have time for another .
Currently for 40K I have:
1500 Mech-ish/assault space marines
1500 Line Shooty IG
I was interested in collecting a Sisters of battle (I hate saying Witch Hunters) army next but decided I would rather do something non-imperium.
These armies interest me: Kroot Mercenaries, Eldar, Orks.
With the Kroot: I love em, but not sure on how long the list will stay tournament legal. Although I could just then add tau units and have a kroot heavy army (if the tournament legality came into question).
For Orks, they sound like a hella lot of fun, but perusing through the codex they are horribly outdated compared to other armies, but the character and fluff is still there!
For Eldar: well, holosuit harlequins, even though Banshees and Scorpions may be more useful.
Necrons and Dark Eldar could be possibilities, tyranids (although they look amazing) just don't interest me too much.
Well, or I could do a fatasy army!!? OH THE CHOICES!
Overall, I am looking for something that is a different playstyle from what I have, and I figure what better way then a poll... I read most of the stuff in each respective armies section, and that is how I narrowed it down.
Look forward to some replies!

I voted Orks, they're green, they're crazy they're stabby and you can go absolutely nuts converting the models. Although you may want to hold off on doing too much work on them till the new codex is ready.
i play orks but i will advise the kroot mercenaries because for only seven points you can buy more than an ork. an extra cover save (in woods), infiltration, 2 CCW's on the gun etc etc.
dont let the fantasy mob push you around

Total 40k: >5000pts
total WFB: ~2000pts
I also enjoy good music, fine food, late night strolls on the beach and dancing in moonkin form :)
but yes, go with fantasy. Its more tactically challenging, and with the new rules, its even more refined. Also, lots of armies have been coming out again so they are all competative. Just dont be dwarfs, the world needs less dwarfs:shifty:
Edit* why not undead? they are like necrons, but are weaker, more puny, and are WAY more costamizable. Also, Vampires are awesome characters...
"This sure ain't no pansy Eldar Armor, Son"
185th Cadian Armored Div.
"One Shot, One Kill"
Western Border Patrol of Athel Loren
Well i voted orks, you could do 1- Collect a small block of orks until the new ones coem out ( 500-1000 ) then collect the newo nes, or 2. play some eldar =P
I have always had a hard time getting into fantasy because I want to play everything (besides dwarfs, Hordes AND beasts of chaos, Orcs and Goblins)
I like vampire counts because of the vampires, but not a fan of the zombies and ghouls.
Wood Elves have great models, Lizardman ditto, tomb kings because I am an anthropology major and they have that whole archaeological feel to them, Empire because they are well rounded, Brettonians because of Chivalry code (personal interest), High Elves because of the large range of choices (special/rare anyway), Dark Elves becase Evil elves are awsome, Skaven because it is intimidating, Ogres because of the feel of a small army, etc etc.
On another note, on page 45 of the Orc Codex in the section Ork Tribes and Hierarchy, it lists freebooter tribes and warbands.... On that list is Jolly Ork (Pirates) Made me giggle.

I went Eldar.
They can be played any number of ways, and allow for some cool color schemes (and detailing, if you are good at freehand)
They also are a really good army if your a 40k veteran, and know how the game is played. Eldar are a bit of a challenge to use correctly, but that is what makes them so much fun.
