    The most popular armies

    I know that the Space Marines are the most popular army but I was wondering about the rest? which ones would you consider to be the most popular?

    I think Warriors of Chaos are pretty popular for Fantasy, not too sure about 40k, but I'd agree with you.

    space marines are most popular by far. chaos space marines are prob second, eldar prob 3rd. theres a huge gap between space marines and the others though. most long term players have a few armies and i would guess that almost all of them have some sort of space marine force

    Space marines are definatly the most popular like you said, but I've always wondered if it had been Tyranids, Necrons and Daemons that had been most popular, would the 'mech style' that is prevalant today never have happened. As the three I mentioned have no transports or would people who played other armies mech up anyway.
    Something to ponder.

    I would guess that Chaos is second.

    As for myself,
    Army, place, #years playing

    IG = #1 (13+ yrs)
    Nids = #2 (10 yrs)
    SM = distant 3rd (1 yr)

    The transports are usually cheap point wise but priced near tanks. Gw prob pushed them to make the money. Plus its sweet to have a bunch of cool loking tanks

    Well, in the General Hobby discussion stickied threads there are two polls about which army one plays. One for WHFB and one for 40K. I can't be bothered writing the current results here, but check it out! Its not a bad way of getting the general wind of the popularity of armies.

    Yes it is true as you said, Space Marines is the most popular army by far. But for only one reason, they are the easiest to play. Space Marines are brillient in both Range and Melee so it makes them the perfect Army to choose. Other Armys however are much more difficult to play, such as Chaos Space Marines. Chaos ussally excel in Close Combat, and are alright at ranged, but not the best, Tau excel in ranged, but rather back away from a close combat situation. Hope this has helped answer your question.
