    I want a second army and these are the final five, based on 4-6 of these qualitys
    1.)Conversion Factor
    2.)Fluff
    3.)Paintablity
    4.)Playablity
    5.)Cool models
    6.)Possible individualness of models

    Orks- The looted vehicles, and massive amounts of boyz
    Space Wolves- The blood claws with axes would be cool to make
    Tau- Seem like a cool race, but I haven't seen any evey day soldier conversions to*
    * * * * make. However I do like the Devilfish(ray?) so I'd do a mechanized thing
    GH- I like the majesticness of the army that could turn out pretty cool
    Tyranids- Conversion, and painting factor

    PS (for moderators) I am asking the other races about it so its not really spam

    Three Companies of the 26th Vinancium
    143rd Airborne Badgers (99.9% done)
    159th Corsair Rifles (35% done))
    69th Armored Wall Busters (95% done)

    Total 197 men, 12 tanks, 4 Heavy Artillery Pieces

    GO FOR THE NIDS MAN!!! GO FOR THE NIDS!!!

    1) Conversion?.. man this is the army to be... you can do soooo much on them

    2)Fluff?............. its alright... its fun to build on and play with ^_^

    3) paint?........... anything goes is all i can say ^_^ detail... you can go as far as you want with it

    4)play)............. nid armys are a "full out" assault... not much you can change bout it... but you can have fun seeing your army ripping through the opponents front line

    5)Cool models... they are as cool as you wish... just change a thing or two on a model to make it original ^^ hehe

    6)individualness? look at # 5

    yeah most people dont use it for painting because they want to get done with the mass amounts of guys fast but painting with nids can look amazing

    but with the huge amount of guys if all you want to do is paint...
    its pointless to play them

    but i saw on there cool models i'm not sure any other army has cooler models than tyranids

    tyranids are fast, CC beasts, good for #s and just plain cool, with much variety you can make army lists so much diffrent from somebody elses its crazy

    If you want to see just how far you can push it with Tyranids, check this out:

    That guy's models are AWESOME (still picking my jaw up off the floor). That dude must have a lot of time on his hands.

    Chris almighty... thats amazing&#33;
    That just shows that you spend ages on nids and get a stunning result, caked in detail, while other sources (such a phil kelly&#39;s nids, the black & yellow ones) show that a simple scheme can be just as rewarding... well maybe not as rewarding as that website, but still...

    Edimara has the idea, GO WITH NIDS&#33;&#33;&#33;
