Welcome to Librarium Online!
G'day all, I'm 18 from Uk.. I have 3,000 points of old blood angels, and just returning to the hobbey after couple of years out! trying to decide between starting an Imperial Guard company, or the Lamenters chapter....probably going for marines again, as i am limited by money...the reason i stopped originally. any comments welcome, cheers
Hey TheIronDuke, and welcome to LO, and back to the hobby. All i wanted to say is don't let money put you off the Imperial Guard, i know they can be pricey (allthough that depends on the kind of army you field and your willingness to convert), but they are very rewarding, and who wants two marine armies??
Don't make a mistake you'll live to regret.......
Get Imperial Guard!!
Ok.... Rant over, ermmmmm..... Follow the rules of the forum and im sure you will have a great stay here at LO, hope to see you around!!
Cheers for the welcome. My main concern with Guard is that if i did create an army, I would like it to be infantry heavy, running round in chimeras. and that pushes the price up immediately, as buying 100 flashlight wielding men doesn't come in cheap...
On the flip side, it has been a long time since i collected marines, and i think i would make the lamenters very different from Blood Angels, and try to stick to what fluff there is... I love the imagery of large basic tac squads deepstriking and just advancing bolters blazing.....hmmm.....decisions decisions.
Well, if marines with bolters are what floats your boat, then go with it, after all the hobby is about having fun (this is what i tell myself when i lose...... i say it allot), i just didn't want you to not get guard just because of the price tag.
Myself i have an all infantry guard army, and the price issue in a number of ways, first i have converted all of my special weopans, and some heavies aswell, i get 9-12 heavy weapons out of the three heavy weapon boxed set...... I also paint slowly, and have used this to my advantage, i wont buy more guardsman till ive finished the last lot. This way i have time to save up between boxes.......
If you like marines for fluff reasons, then go with them!!
>>(this is what i tell myself when i lose...... i say it allot)
Another reason I want Lamenters, they are supposed to be plagued with bad luck
Perfect excuse for when i lose all those battles... " its not me its the models...damn bad luck" :yes:
