It's true. Men are obsolete. That's why space marines were made. There will always be a new war.

Well, I want to add to this.

Warrior of Chaos

painting fun.....................8/10 Painting an armor clad killing machine is awesome.
Conversions.....................9/10 Mutations are kewl.
Magic ability....................9/10 We have two spells that can remove entire units from play.

i havent played against much other than my dads warriors of chaos, but i love playing my lizards, they are fairly easy to play they were my starting army and i have no problem learning the game with them, theyre pretty good all around magic melee and shooting at close range. painting is fairly easy lots of detail, but can get repetitive. i have loads of fun painting them. conversion, i hav a hard time trying to think of new ways to do things, but i came up with a great idea for a frox, lots of oppertunity. slaan=rape at magic, saurus=rape at melee, and skink have poison wep which rape

Skaven
[*] Playing Fun ..............................10/10 I love these guys. A combination of wacky special weapons and massive hordes of rat men just does it for me :D.
[*] Playing difficulty .......................8/10 If your unlucky with dice (like me :)) these guys can be pretty difficult. Getting low rolls at the wrong time and than losing most of your forces with some bad ld rolls...well let's just say it's not fun :).
[*] Painting difficulty.......................7/10 There not...difficult parse but there's a lot of em.
[*] Painting fun .............................8/10 I defiantly enjoy painting them and with so many models you can try all kinds of techniques :).
[*] Conversions .............................7/10 Haven't tried any conversions myself but I've seen a few posts talking about Skaven conversions :|
[*] Magic ability.............................7/10 again haven't gotten around to the magic too much but from what I've read/seen they're fairly decent with it.
[*] Melee ability.............................5/10 mono a mono...not so good at it, but with enough troops :)
[*] Range ability.............................8/10 With some of the best (imo) weapons teams out there they excel at ranged combat. They may be no elf at archery, but with something like the warp-fire thrower or a warp lightning cannon who needs accuracy.
The enemies of the Emperor fear many things.
They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death.
Yet there is one thing they fear above all others.
They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!

Skaven
[*] Playing Fun...............................10/10 Funniest... Army... Ever! There are giants rats in the doomwheel, running like they are in a hamster wheel. xD
[*] Playing difficulty........................7/10 Knowing your army well makes this a lot easier, but the dice decide.
[*] Painting difficulty.......................8/10 Lots of skin, different tones, fur and the fur changing to skin. Warpstone and other things make them a bit hard to paint, but you'll master it.
[*] Painting fun..............................9/10 I love painting my ratmen, you got so many possibilities!
[*] Conversions..............................8/10 Rat Ogres, 'nuff said. ;)
[*] Magic ability.............................8/10 They don't have got that much magic, but there sure are a few powerful spells that will crush the enemy lines.
[*] Melee ability.............................7/10 They're Skaven, mass them and they'll win. :)
[*] Range ability.............................6/10 Aside from a few (lot of, actually) cannons and jezzails, the Skaven shouldn't focus on ranged that much.
That'ssss a nice miniature you have there! It would be a sssshame if ssssomething happened to it.

Im trying to get my friend (who plays Imperial guard) into fantasy, but he doesn't want to play because he says there is no shooting. Which army has the most guns?
PS I play bretonnia so it will be weird having almost a cav vs lots of guns.
4500-Ultra-Smurfs
1200-Eldar

Dwarfs and Empire are tied for the most guns. I will tell you now if you let him play a gunline you will infact have no fun and he will get bored qiuck
I fall into a dark hole
And I can't come out
Do you know if Merlin did exist
Or Frodo wore the ring
Did Corum kill the gods
Or where's the wonderland
Which young Alice had seen
Or was it just a dream
I knew the answers
Now they're lost for me
