night goblins are very fun to paint and the entire army book fluff is just pure funny nonsense who doesn't love the green skins kill'em with numbers

my 1000 point NG army is about 160 figures i have had lots of fun painting them and playing even though they are very difficult to play

you have to be careful with who attacks who my squigs can easily tare apart regiments at a time but you need to use them to take out big models as NG are fairly weak even with numbers on there side, 2nd game i lost becuase nothing left in my army was strong enough to even scratch the opponents last oger

I think this is a GREAT idea!I can offer some insight on the Lizardmen.Make sure to put in your original post something like "this thread is not the same as the codex,BUY THE CODEX!!!" or something like that...yeah me and rusky and silversquire all play the Lizards so maybe they can help too.-Collin

P.S.Sorry if I spelled names wrong :wink:

I don't get your chart Dallen. There's stars beside all the things, explain how it works please.

Thanks Jombo and even though some will be biased i hope people will be honest and the averages of multiple votes will be more accurate as the list grows

Yeah, and I don't know if mine will be all that accurate, because I've never played anyone, and I've never played any other army, so I'm just going off of what I've heard! :lol:

If you would like to correct, just fill it out again, that way, over time, my beliefs that are wrong will be diluted into better ratings.

Heres Daemons of Chaos, pretty much the only one ever who plays them in fantasy

[*] Playing Fun 8
[*] Playing difficulty 9
[*] Painting difficulty 9
[*] Painting Fun 8
[*] Conversions 3
[*] Magic Ability 9
[*] Melee Ability 10
[*] Ranged Ability 2

Plays great but lacks plastic models making it almost impossible to convert, anyway pretty much destroying in combat, bloodletters have 5str and can march anytime they want and pink horror troop squads count as lvl 1 magic. Its also pretty fun to paint since there is pretty much all different kinds of units to paint differently so its colorful. Only one unit in this army uses range attacks so this is probably the worst range army ever but using magic is a good alternative for range. People don't really play this army from it being all metal. If you want a different army that very few play take em
