Daemons of Chaos
Orcs and Goblins
Warriors of Chaos
There was a similar thread started in the 40K Armies forum, so I thought I might start one here. What army do you believe is the most unappealing? Why? Any model in particular?
I may as well start off. I believe that the Daemons are lacking in the looks side of things. Compared to the mighty animated constructs of Nehekhara that Games Workshop has designed, the Daemons are pretty pitiful. I believe they lack the general capacity to be a stunning army, as only few models look good, specifically Fateweaver in my opinion. Take this Nurgle… thing… for example.
What about you?
I say Daemons too. Its the only army where you have to try to lose. I don't think you can build a list that comps well in any tournment. I do like a Khorne Theamed list though
Daemons is one of my favorite armies out there >.<
There's just so many different themes in that army and the "blobs" (i agree there are some ugly things in here) are just a part of it. The older Daemonette are gorgeous! the new juggernauts are ace! The Ballro.. Bloodthirster is pretty awesome and the forgeworld one is WOW! Yes you probably guessed it, i have a daemons army and i must say, every painted/converted model is a little piece of art (except for the pink horrors). Thats not something i can say of some armies.. like Skaven or goblins.
I vote Ogres.
it's all just a bunch of ogres. I cant even keep all the 'dfferent' ogres apart. except the yetis. the single pose yeti's! If you ask me they should have stuck those where they belong, as a sideshow to a REAL army! And there's those goblins that are just a little different from goblins, because goblins too cool to join that army.

i vote ogres as well, they are the only army i never considered collecting, except for skaven but they are pretty popular i guess, just cuz of the fact that every model is the same, not even a variation in fluff, all are big and like to eat and kill, no depth at all, daemons on the other hand, while i dont like the new bloodletters or daemonettes, never liked the horrors and always hated everything nurgle, i still think they have some beautifully done miniatures, the demon prince, the plastic juggernauts, the old daemonettes as already mentioned are stunning, i mean the army is kind of uniform, but there are lots like that, and there are thousands of modeling and painting options available to the player
even though i agree with how disgusting the nurgle crap is, that is the desired effect, doesn't make it unnapealing
I chose wood elfs.
1 - Hippy tree huggers, blech.
2 - The most annoying of the pointy ears.
3 - Hippy tree huggers.
4 - Burn the forests, boil the lakes, purge the land of green.
I'd have to vote daemons also, outside of Khorne daemons the daemon models just look so lackluster. The only exception would be the forgeworld models, but what don't they make look good. I enjoyed reading about Tzeentch's realm but the rest was meh.
A close second would be Brets, the lore is just boring to read for me, models are ok I guess.
The most appealing armies to me are the Ogres and Orcs & Goblins. Giant Gore cravers and Crazed Battle hungry lunatics is the way for me. After that I'd say TKs are awesome, and with new Tomb Guard and giant monsters, the army now looks BEAUTIFUL. Before it seemed the only way to make a appealing looking TK army was to just have a well painted horde of skeletons with some Ushabti. Can't wait for new Necrolith Col/ Heirotitan models
See that? And I love the Daemons ... but now that you guys are pointing things out I'm realizing that the reason I didn't go Daemons was because beyond the Bloodletters it's all just /meh. Heck I don't even dig the skulltaker model all that much.
i voted wood elves aswell because they look dumb as crap! i say to them go back to your trees to make some cookies you dumb keeblers! and what is wrong with orcs and goblins?!??! they are the bomb! and i also agree that the ogres are non appealing too. they seem like a bunch of lards that copy the orcs!
let em hear ya WAAAGH!!!
I said i LIKED Ogres and Orcs(yes I like Ogres), and honestly I can't see Orcs and Goblins getting a vote unless its out of spite or as a joke. Everyone loves greenskins, just some more than others. If you read into Ogres, they are nothing like Orcs at all outside of having smaller greenskins around them(gnoblars).
i am talking about the look though'
let em hear ya WAAAGH!!!
