    Which army would suit me best? [painting and modelling wise]

    Hi

    Im looking for a new army, for 5th edition I would like a competitive army that is lots of fun to game with and therethore means I wont be switching around from army to army all the time.

    I'm also looking for an army that will be a real challenge to paint and I can make my own colour scheme without breaking any of the fluff background. Im happy spending 2+ hours on a model. Also an army that I can convert easily would be good too.

    Here are some armies that Im not interested in:
    Necrons
    Tyranids
    Imperial Guard

    So remember... An army that I will stay with for a long time, can challenge me at painting and will be lots of conversion opputunities.

    Chaos space marines are a great army, full of conversion opportunities and very powerful. There are infinite ways of using them to suit whichever playstyle you enjoy along with the option of making your own renegade chapter with it's own colors.

    Sajiisde makes a good suggestion and if you don't go with that I have to say Orks! There's infinite conversion possibilities and as long as you paint their skin green you can't go wrong.

    Starting can be relatively cheap thanks to the Assault On Black Reach boxset and there are many styles of play you can use: a horde or speed freaks force are just two examples.

    But I hate having the same colour scheme as everyone else and so Orks would wreck that for me.

    yeah, but I cant paint them my own way or I would be "breaking" the fluff background as the Eldar are split into different craftworlds and thats how their warriors are painted. The aspect warriors are all painted the same.

    I think you missed my point; the only similarity between Ork armies in terms of colour is their skin. There are many clans such as Evil Sunz and Speed Freaks that use all different colours. Blue, yellow, red. You could even invent your own and create some nice fluff regarding your 'clan'.

    Yeah, I might consider that actually.

    But basically I want an army I can create my own colour scheme on, you know have an army painted a way nobody else at my games store will.
