  1. Thanks for all your suggestions ❤️ - Kharadron I dont really enjoy the models and they look rather ranged heavy - Mawtribes I dont hate, but I already have quite a collection of them and I think Id rather dabble into something new - Fyreslayers and Bonereapers are my favorites so far. For Fyreslayers the big Dragons seem to be kinda underplayed and the models are looking pretty similar which Im kinda afraid of, Bonereapers its just hard to fit everything you want into one list But yeah those two look pretty promising. - Ironjawz/Orcs also look interisting and theyd be like place 3 or something
  2. Heyho, Ive already posted in the Introduction chanel where I started talking about the topic. But Ive seen a quite similar thread here and it seems like this part of the Forum is a little more crowded. If this is considered spamming please let me know, Ill delete one of the posts. Ive been a Warhammer and 40k collector for like 10 years now on and off. I never really got to play a game in the past but since Ive moved to a city for college I decided that its finally time to change that. After AoS was realeased I was one of the many people who were disgusted and since then I mainly got into 40k models and list building. I a week ago or so I watched a video about all the factions in AoS in 16mins which kinda got me interested in checking AoS out, since I still prefere the models and the world to 40k. But yeah wanting to get back into it I was now presented with the question which army to play. Since I was a collector in the past I dont really have too much of a coherent army. I looked through the web store and same like in the past I really liked all the Undead factions. The new Nighthaunt are so cool and I like the Bonereapers as well. But hell yeah so many other cool factions as well, so Rule of cool didnt really got me started. Since I kinda want to get competitive at some point I started looking at power rankings and tournament lists (bcp and aosshorts) so I guess I have a general idea of how the armies are build now, The 16min video also gave me a really quick rundown on what to expect but I still cant really figure out what the best call is. So since theres a lot of things I dont know here are the things I actually do know: - I like big eye catching stuff. Big models are a blast to paint and look at, so Id really want my army to have monsters and cool looking characters that I can sink some time in painting. I dont enjoy soley monsters tho, looking at BCR fe. I think Im kinda missing the diversity there. - I like to have some options to choose from and having a diversity of units on the table. Like I found Idoneth to look really cool but I couldnt find myself to brin only eels to the table. - I also dont like Hordes. As much as I love Skaven and Gitz I sadly wont be able to paint 120 battleline units. I like to spend time on individual models. But this means I dont mind elite I guess. - Playstyle wise Im a tank main in mmos. I dont like shooting to much, its okay if its supporting but I couldnt stand a ranged centric army. So yeah I love meele combat, hitting like a truck or throwing a bucket of dice. I also value magic and priest a lot. I think super fragile isnt for me either. I dont necessarly care about being slow and grindy. There are factoins that I have on my radar now, like I love all the Undead stuff, I like the Slaves and Khorne ones, Cities I love because of diversity, Fyreslayers look awesome, I like quite a bit of stuff looking at Stormcasts. Orcs look cool as well. But I always found some problems looking at the rather small sample size of lists. So yeah if you could lend me a hand figuring things out Id be really thankful! Thanks for reading stay healthy and have a nice one Itami
  3. Thank you for your answers :3 Ive already looked through the whole store. Problem is there are actually a lot of armies I like the look of. I also checked through pretty much all lists I could find in bcp and on aosshorts since I kinda want to go competitive at some point. The every army video Ive watchde as well, it was kinda what got me going to give the hobby another shot The factions I liked, just from aesthetics were: Death: (well yeah kinda see the opening post) Waagh: Its meele, the models are great they dont seem to be too spammy but there isnt much choice looking at army choices Cities: I love the theme of combining all the old good races in an Alliance army but they seem to be super spammy ranged focused which I hate Stormcast Eternals: They have super awesome looking cahracters and Monsters but I only saw spammy ranged lists so far Fyreslayers: Love the lore and the looks but it seems like the drakes arent played and there troop choices are kinda stale Beasts of Chaos: Like the looks but they seem pretty horde and the cool big stuff isnt played and Beasts in general seem pretty weak Blades of Khorne/Slaves: They kinda fit everything I want I guess but I didnt like them as much as the others at first glance Lumineth: I havent looked at so far so I guess I need to do that now. I hated High Elves in Warhammer, but times change I suppose ;D
  4. Hey my names Alex, Im a student from Germany, and Ive collected Warhammer and 40k minis or like 10 years now (mainly Vampire Counts). I actually never played a game before because I lived in a pretty rural land scape so nobody ever heared of wargaming. About a year ago I moved to a city to study so a couple weeks ago I thought I should get into AoS now that I have the chance to actually do so. My main problem is chosing a faction. I like big miniatures and cool looking characters. I kinda dislike horde armies and like to have some variety on the table. Playstyle wise I prefere meele focused factions with good magic and prayers. So far Ive mainly collected undead but I dont really know if they suite the named points. If you could recommend some of the factions fitting the description Id be really thankful. Stay healthy and see you around Itami
