I am new to Sigmar! I would like to collect a death army and the two that really get me are Nighthaunts and Flesh Eater Courts! But I don't know enough about the game to know how they really play on the table, and I love the lore and Aesthetic of both (Might get both eventually, but I can afford one right now). How do they both play? And I know courts are a hoard army, but are the Haunts? Or are they more elite? (I like having fewer, better painted models overall). I am also more interested in fun to play, over raw competitiveness, though winning CAN be very fun
What are your priorities when it comes to picking units? I personally put them in this order: What the units are in the background fiction. Do I like what they are or represent in either the stories and descriptions in the battletomes or in novels or short stories that they appear in? The modelling and painting experience. Do I like the way it looks? Does building it look fun? Am I excited about painting it? The connection between the background fiction and the rules. Do the rules evoke what the unit does in the stories or in its description in the battletome? If I play a game with it, will it feel like it should or will this be one of those areas where the background says one thing but the rules don't support that? (thankfully this is rare in AoS) The strength of the unit on the top top. I'm not looking for a tournament army but will the unit stick around on the table top and live long enough to do its cool thing every game or two? When it finally does the cool thing about it will it be awesome or will a sad trombone play? Womp-womp? A take on the last one that I don't use but many people do: It's place in a tournament list. Given what other people play, the nature of the terrain, scenarios and the current plan of my army, will this have a home in my army when I go to the next big event? Do I have some sort of combination of abilities planned that this contributes to? Does it protect my combination? Does it take objectives? What is it actually going to do to help me win games at an event? Or do you go by instinct? Just buy what's new and in stock when you drop by a shop? Maybe getting a good deal is important? Have you ever thought about why you pick the units you do?
Which factions do you think will be next to have Battletomes and/or Start Collecting boxes? I really want to do some flavour of Aelves, but don't really want to get a bunch of models if they're about to be repacked with the right bases and big discounts. Are they sticking to races that have all-plastic kits for the battletomes - which would mean Wanderers is waaaay off? Are they dragging the repacks/battletomes out for the next few years?
