Anyways,welcome aboard! Have fun,follow the rules,all that stuff.
Welcome to LO. I rather feel the IG are getting some unfair attention here so I'm going to advertise the dark gods of chaos.
-basically 9 armies in 1. You can do everything and anything. Not even the space marines can boast the kind of maneuverability provided by 9 armies in 1 codex.
-fighting against the emperor means you can win moral victories even when you lose.
-except for maybe the orks chaos have the most conversion potential.
-due to the conversion opportunities chaos is extremely fun to paint.
-can do anything, chaos can be even smaller and compacter then a space marine force and if you choose AlphaLegion or lost and the damned it can be as large as an IG army.
-get a lot of attention from GW. Not as much as the loyalists but chaos get a lot of attention from GW and are always featured majorly in campaigns, events etc.
-can do anything a marine army can do + more.
-have by far the most fluff potential to design your own legion or warband. The sheer number of opportunities for designing a chaos lord is amazing and means you can get to know your army personally.
-Many events on the LO forum. Such things as the chaos project means you get to build an army with the help of others in the same thread.
As you can see I dont particularly like the imperium armies as much as the others. I just felt that some of the anti-imperium armies should be represented. Its always fun to draw someone away from the imperium. Indeed the best IG army is the savlar chem-dogs and theyre the hated criminals.
Check out my Codex: Farmyard Animals here!
If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
Heh. What you said is actually quite true. The Chaos junkies are pretty cool, but alot of what you said about them (Converting options, GW coverage) is the same with the IG... Plus we have power in numbers, so I should warn you, if you don't want to do alot of painting IG are NOT for you.
And yes, the Chem-Dogs are pro.
I'm with Gandhi on this, guard all the way!!
Oh, and hi, and welcome!!
Inquistion force WIP. Pics on posts 17 and 23.
haha we are trying to convert him to our own sides, so cool.... so i say be different, have an army of girls!:lol: sisters of battle all the way oh and welcome.
