Hello, many of you will remember reading that I was curious about playing 40K again and if not you can catch up a little here. The more I think about it the more I convince myself that it is a good idea but I have a problem.
That problem is two fold really. I’m competitive and therefore want a decent army (since I hate getting beaten every time) and I’m a little bit cash strapped. All of the games that I’ve been covering recently have really burnt a hole in my wallet. Generally I just buy stuff and force it into an army but it tends not to work very well. For example my wall-to-wall bolter toting Night Lords (which I think look cool but aren’t going to fare too well on the 40K table by all accounts).
This is where you guys come in. I want a new (bored of blue) 40K army that is competitive to the point where if I was to enter a small tournament it wouldn’t be disgraced by anything other than my bad playing. I have no idea which force to chose though and it’s not a small investment with codexes alone retailing at £25. There really are so many available it’s a bit bewildering for anyone returning to the game!
If you could assist me by at least narrowing down my options to a few codexes that would be great. A suggestion for starting that army would be brilliant too. Something like Chaos Space Marines – Thousand Sons boxed set would be ideal. I’m asking you guys who have more experience to help me because the internet is awash with opinions and frankly there are soooo many I can’t see the wood for the trees!
Many thanks in advance for your assistance! -Mark
