Hey, my friends want to start playing, can you give me some advice and some reasons why the army is good...
Hello Big and welcome to the board!
With the best will in the galaxy, thats a huge topic! It comes down to what are their personal preferences, past experiences and level of games exposure.
Do they like shooty armies, assaulty armies, fast armies, general purpose armies or what suits their preferred game tactics?
You could check out the threads in the Army forum, there will be enough force comparisons there to at least give you some working ideas to start with.
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
in my opinon, my army is ripped to little parts by Tao. Use them (in my opinon.)
Dark Eldar: The Kabal Of the Black Heart: Bloody Claw division.
Black Legion: Division 666
Vampire Counts Von Castein Bloodline: w/l/t
I would say a great army is space marines. The troops are all around amazing at shooting and close combat. Always rally is very useful special rule. They are also a good army for beginners but not only beginners use them. They are an extremely effective force.
Necrons I would say are the most powerful because the average trooper can come back to life when killed and the C'tan are amazing!!
In the end there is only war.
Eldar! In my opinion eldar are the best...they are amazing. you get to choose what type of craftworld you will represent (im ulthwe), what aspects you want in your army,(the aspects are awesome! and their tanks are really nice. Necrons, you say, are good. i will have to disagree with you, they have a very small amount of models you can use, and they are all very easy to paint. To adress the topic of the c'tan, yes, they are amazing, but every strong unit has a weakness. in a close quarter fight my Maugan Ra decimated the nightbringer, which at 360 some points this shouldnt happen. ive played many armies, but only with eldar can i say i havent lost a battle in something like 5 months. Since your a beginner i recommend you go with space marines or necrons, but when you progress and become good, use eldar, and you will see what i mean when i say they are amazing,
Some crazy Stuff
in a 2000 point game vs a khorne army, i destroyed this fools bloodthirster using my wraithlord, and amazingly a squad of my black gaurdian defeders defeated one of his troops of bloodletters, and only lost 8 men. the combat lasted over three rounds, so i decided to stop toying with the kid and brought in my howling banshees to wipe up.
the next game my fire dragons survived a full frontal assault by a substantial squad of genestelers and two seedling swarms of death gaunts deep striked right on top of my head....you should of seen it....my fire dragon exarch had like 30 gaunts all piled on top of him, and luckily held out long enough for my howling banshees to come in and help out, with the help of my wraithlord, and he lived!
now, people are scared to play me. its kind of funny, actually

You first army is really personal preferance, go to the Games Workshop website & have a look around. I first picked Iron Warriors cause i liked their look, but after reading about them (damn shooters) i hate them . Go to your local GW & ask the workers their, depends what Type of army you want, personally i like running in & Hacking,punching & stomping my enemies down so hence=BLACK TEMPLAR :ph34r: . Now run my child, run to GW :w
<u>Fear The Wrath Of The ANZAC Clan</u>
Sisters of Battle or DeamonHunters...or wait for the WitchHunters...
Go for something easy like space marines but whatever you do DONT go for Imperial Guard if you're only a begginner, i made that mistake and look how demented i am now, a Colonel of the 21st Enertia Fusiliers, the Guard are just too complicated to use when you're first starting, stick to Space Marines, thats my advice!

Nearly everyone is just saying the army which is their favourite.
It is a bit lazy to expect so much when you make a just over one line post, maybe you could say the styles that they want. I could give a good argument for any army, but it is pointless.
Everyone should decide for themself.
